YSU beats Illinois State in home finale

Published: Sat, November 14, 2009 @ 5:49 p.m.

Everything has been for the seniors this week for the Youngstown State football team and those 12 seniors took it upon themselves to finish their careers at Stambaugh Stadium in a blaze of glory.

They were the reason the Penguins (5-5, 3-4 Missouri Valley Football Conference) closed out their home schedule Saturday with a 30-18 victory over Illinois State before a crowd announced at 12,493.

Senior quarterback Brandon Summers came within one yard of his career-best performance, passing for 346 yards and two touchdowns, while senior tailback Kevin Smith had his third 100-yard rushing game with 121 yards on 27 carries and one touchdown.

Please define "announced crowd." There is no way that 12,493 people were at the game.
Is this something YSU has to do to stay in their conference?
Or, is this counting the season tickerts solds PLUS the huindreds of tickets given away (to my company included) that were not used; or are we counting the cars traveling along Fifth Avenue and on 680 during the game?
Glad for the seniors that YSU won!!

Glad the seniors won, but I hope they don't use this as a pretext to keep things the way they are. In college football, it's all about recruiting, and the current staff just hasn't been able to bring in enough talent to compete.
If they were able to bring in a staff that at least made a serious effort to recruit locally, it would begin to restore a positive relationship between the football program and area high school coaching staffs. For some reason, the current staff believes that they don't have a chance at getting the area's top players, so they've sacrificed their relationship with local high schools. This was a big mistake.
