Youngstown State football team misses playoffs

Published: Sun, November 18, 2012 @ 1:49 p.m.

The Youngstown State football team will not be in the playoffs.

The Penguins (7-4) were not among the 10 at-large teams selected on Sunday despite ending the year with a three-game win streak and opening the season with a win over Big East-member Pitt.

The Missouri Valley Football Conference had three teams advance: conference champion North Dakota State (the defending champions and No. 1 overall seed), South Dakota State and Illinois State. All three teams defeated the Penguins.

Well, at least we can say good luck to those teams in the MVC that beat the crap out YSU. When you can beat these teams in your conference, then you can go to the playoff. Maybe next year they can put it all together. The area fans know they have the talent in the players to do it.

Maybe if they had a real coach. This guy ain't the man for the job. Said it last year and this year proves it, they had the talent this year as they beat Pitt who went toe to toe with the #1 team in the country. You need a coach who can motivate the ENTIRE season not individual games.

I hear Coach Tressel would like another chance to coach. Maybe we could get him back. YSU has not been good since he left.

Be careful Union, I was ridiculed at the thought of that last year. I think he could produce a winner at the Ice Castle once again. I would even make a special trip back home to see a game with him at the helm.
