A win is a win
September 15, 2012 - Dana Sulonen
It wasn't pretty, it wasn't flashy, but it was a win for the Youngstown State University Penguins, 31-24 over Albany.
But what I truly think happened on Saturday at Stambaugh Stadium was a wake up call. And it came at the perfect time.
YSU is headed into conference play this Saturday, against a very tough Northern Iowa team. The Penguins used a lot of energy to defeat Pitt, then pretty much had an off week against Valparaiso. It took almost three quarters for YSU to play the way I knew they could play, and they can get away with it against a good Albany team, but they wouldn't be able to get away with it against a very good UNI squad.
I hope this week the Penguins learned their lesson that they can't come out flat, and they need to be ready for everything against UNI.
Look for updates in the Tribune Chronicle and on this blog as I preview the UNI game daily. Also, follow me on Twitter @DanaSulonenTrib or like my Facebook page, "Dana's Sports Daze." I'll have updates all week.
