Discussion Board/Forum


As most of you know, Lets Go Vikes started off primarily as a forum. The database was attacked by spambots and we also had other issues that forced the old site to close. Here is an open thread for anyone who wants to start a forum topic. You can log in a number of ways (Facebook, Twitter, Google) and, for now, I am allowing guests to publish comments as well. This will be easier to monitor as they go into one central location. Hope to hear from CSU fans, and opposing teams fans, in the coming months as Vikings Basketball tips off the season.

Taking a Look at the Vikings Who Jumped Off of Gary Waters' Ship

This will be a season, no matter how it plays out, that many Cleveland State Vikings fans will ponder "What If". What if the team still had Bryn Forbes, Junior Lomomba, and Ike Nwamu. That would probably be the most loaded mid-major basketball team in the country and the team would press teams to death with an onslaught of players rotating in and out of the game. Coach Waters made it know, publicly, that it was his goal to reach the Final Four with CSU and this would have been his crew to do it with.


Video: Highlights of 2014 CSU Green & White Scrimmage

The Cleveland State Vikings held their annual Green and White scrimmage and we were on hand to catch the action. Here is some film that we took of the play and the remarks by both coaches of the teams. Be sure to head to our sister site The Cleveland Leader for a complete rundown on the day and my analysis. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to comment here or on the open thread on the front page. From what I saw on the court, it looks like there is a fun year in store for Vikings basketball fans.

Another Dayton Dunbar Product Will Be a Starting Member of the Cleveland State Vikings

Pretty soon, they may refer to Cleveland State as the Dayton Dunbar of northern Ohio. After seeing two talents that the powerhouse has produced, NBA first round draft selection Norris Cole and 3 year starting center Aaron Pogue, CSU fans will once again have an ex-Wolverine turned Viking to root for in a pivotal role for the team. It is now Andre Yates turn to showcase his talents at the Wolstein Center this season after being named a starting guard for Gary Waters this season.


CSU Hallow Hoops and Green and White Scrimmage Today

Cleveland State University's Department of Athletics has just announced a great, family-friendly event that will promote both the men's and women's basketball programs and provide a safe trick-or-treating environment for children. In conjunction with the CSU Student Life Office, the Dept. of Atheltics will host a "Hallo-Hoops" event at the Wolstein Center on Saturday, October 25.

Tim Hasbargen - Can the German Prospect Pay Off for the CSU Vikings?

The one name that intrigues me on the Cleveland State roster this season is Tim Hasbargen. How did an 18 year old from Munich end up on the campus in the center of downtown Cleveland? I haven't found the entire story, as of yet, but Greg Murphy did confirm that Hasbargen was looking at Case Western Reserve before he made his decision to give NCAA Division I Basketball a try.
