YSU football team misses playoffs



Published: Sun, November 24, 2013 @ 11:50 a.m.

The Youngstown State football team missed out on a FCS playoff berth Sunday.

The Penguins (8-4, 5-3 Missouri Valley) entered Selection Sunday on the bubble due to losing their last three games, including a 42-13 defeat to South Dakota State on Saturday. They have not made the postseason since 2006.

Sad to see YSU relegated to being a non entity in FCS Football. Heck, even a team with a sub .500 record made it in. Changes need to be made or the 150 people in the stands at the end of the last game will become the standard

Few echoes reverberate as painfully in a community's soul as the sound of a shibboleth being shattered.

pwhite--the attendance is paid attendance, not butts in the seats which is what everybody uses. And YOU are part of the problem. For crissakes, if you took the time to DRIVE BY, why didn't you take the time to go to the game? Typical Youngstown whiner. Probably had to go home to watch Notre Dame.

O$U a contender--don't think so. Their schedule is a yearly joke. You live in Youngstown? And root for teams in Columbu$ and Pittsburgh. And work Obama in your equation. Typical miserable Republican

Every season under Wolford, YSU does NOT get better as the season progresses. Every year, November has been a killer. You have to finish the season strong by eliminating your mistakes and maximizing the strengths of your players. But, Wolford has not done this and for that reason alone he should be canned. Next, what ever happened with recruiting the State of Youngstown like Tressel. You need a large base of kids from the 75 mile radius of Y-town so that their families will put their butts in the seats. And, defense wins championships. If you hold them scoreless, it is a tie! But, their linemen on both sides of the ball are weak and slow. This is a very lackluster program.

Badeepster, you find fault in someone rooting for a team from Columbus called Ohio State? Lol, you do know that is the main college in our home state, right? Heaven forbid someone actually wants to watch a college football program that actually strives to be a contender. How can you even compare OSU to YSU? Just because YOU want to watch a perennial loser, whose program obviously doesn't care about doing what it takes to put a winning team on the field, doesn't mean other Ohioans want to wallow in your own misery. Give it up, YSU hasn't been a contender in nearly 2 DECADES
