Thread: Slippery Rock: PSAC West champions

    Default Slippery Rock: PSAC West champions

    I will be the first to gladly admit I was wrong on Sept. 8. After the way we lost to Shippensburg (on top of how we lost to Kutztown last year and how bad we looked against Kentucky State), I thought this program was heading nowhere under Lutz. I predicted a 7-4 record (at best) after that game and said Lutz would never win a PSAC West title. I was wrong.

    That said, we still have Gannon next week. That program has given us problems back to when I played in the early 2000s. If we lose to Gannon and then to West Chester, it will be 2011 all over again. We'll miss the playoffs. So it's not all sunshine and rainbows in Rock Country yet. But it's a hell of a lot better than it was Sept. 8. Go Rock!

    Why would you risk anything against Gannon next week? The game is an opportunity to get some guys some needed rest. Consider it week 17 in the NFL, and you're in the Wild card round a week later...You're not playing your knicked-up starters, and you're hoping to come out healthy...Your ticket to the playoffs is a win against West Chester on the 10th...

    You're wrong!!! They need to win both!!! Losing 1 of those games could pit them out of the playoffs.

    Slippery Rock's ticket to the playoffs is a win against West Chester on the 10th...The PSAC champion would not be left out of any legitimate regional playoff...

    Congrats to the Rock. Well done. By the way, the Rock Angry Mob was all over Lutz after the loss to Ship. How are the Rock supporters feeling about Lutz now?

    Coach of the year- Shawn Lutz

    Did not think I would say that this year.

    Thought they were a year away.( only 7 seniors and Sample can come back next year on a medical Redshirt) But still a lot of business to take care this year.

    I don't think we're securely in the playoffs by any stretch of the imagination. No way we rest starters and risk a loss to two-win Gannon. I know Lutz has done some questionable stuff since he's been in charge, but he's smarter than that. If we rest our starters, lose to Gannon and then lose to West Chester? The season is over. It happened in 2011 (albeit we didn't rest starters. It was just the case of Gannon forever being a thorn in our side)

    I think most of us have been on the board long enough to see strange things happen to 2-loss teams, even 2-loss teams coming off a conference championship, when it's selection time... better to gun for a 10-1 record and remove all doubt, I think.

    Just got off the line with my brother ... (SRU QB) They’re going for best record possible. No holding back.

    Sloppy win vs Cal. Win the next two and maybe have a bye week then. Gannon's next.

    Damn nice comeback from the early-season woes, Dozsa. Tip of the cap to The Rock.

    I think I mentioned to you before that I think Lutz is pretty good. Winning the west in year 3 is a very good start for him.

    You aren’t going to win it every year because crazy things just happen in this conference.

    Yep...And if they play their back-ups and lose against Gannon and then lose the champ game the following week, they are certain to not be in the playoffs. If they win one of the two, I think they are a pretty good bet to make the playoffs.

    Congrats to THE ROCK FB and their many followers. Sorry the VULCANS couldn't give you more than a half of competition but, as has been said before they put out a young team with a seriously weak defense, so the results speak for themselves. Good luck against WCU and thanks for handing off the BU PUPPIES to CALU in the final week. I THINK the BLACK & RED should be able to handle SHU and BU for a 7-4 record......but chickens and eggs does come to mind. Thank goodness BB is on the horizon.
