Wayne State off to a great start. 7-0.
Wayne State/Winston-Salem Open Thread
14-0, Wayne State. They look good
Alright Wayne! I root for GVSU in DII because of where I grew up but if it's not going to be them it should be one of the other Michigan schools at least.
As a side note, Winston-Salem needs to hire a new groundscrew, grass isn't looking to good today
that stadium is literally less than 10 miles from my house and the field always looks that way. during the summer they use it as a race track and they have demolition derbys and all kinds of what not there that destroys the field. but you're right, you'd think they could do a little more to make the field at least playable on.
ears are bleeding
Go play intramurals, brother.
Touchdown Wayne State! 21-7 with 4:34 to go in the 3rd
Good luck WSU, from a GVSU grad.
For those of you not familiar with D2, the Northeast Region (SR1?) is historically awful. Like, the Big East having an autobid bad. The last NE team to make it to the championship was in 2003, when GVSU was still in the NE.
On the other side of the bracket, Pitt State (KS) and Delta State (MS) are traditionally pretty strong. PSU used the be THE team (before GVSU and NoDak) and appears to be back this year.
Jake Long's little brother Joe Long is the starting LT for Wayne
Winston-Salem score on 4th and goal from the one. 21-14 with 10:33 to go in the game
Wayne State to the title game. Just won 4 straight playoff games on the road. Very nice
Wayne St 21 WSSU 14
I believe he has ties to Akron and may be a favorite for that job.
Great game by WSU. I think the brand of football we use is very similar to what M will be running in the future - Power ground game with shotgun passing and heavy play-action. Nice to see other Michigan schools taking teams to the woodshed.
I was at this game, and I don't think I was the only one in the crowd who was surprised when Winston-Salem ran a HB draw during their two-minute drill..... down by 7...... on their own half of the field....... with no timeouts...... 3 TIMES. It appeared that this was their default first down play in the two-minute drill. After watching a national top 5 team get run up and down the field by the lowest ranked team in the field, this series of events was the icing on the cake, in my opinion, that Wayne State was the better coached team out there this afternoon.
You shouldn't buy the seedings. GLIAC competition much, much better than the HBCU. Winston-Salem is actually *worse* than the average WSU 2011 opponent. By a couple of points.
I went to Wayne back when they really were called the Tartars. Love to see a Detroit team getting it done.
The Tartars will be 7 or 7.5 pt dogs next week to a superior Pittsburg State team. This will vary a bit depending on the injury to WSU RB Davis.
