Duquesne 17 - Dayton 7
A win is a win is a win, however...
The Dukes and their coaching staff seriously need to put the pieces together on this team or else it is going to be a long season.
I know that people are hurt. I know that young guys are getting playing time (a good thing), but the Dukes have GOT to start executing for four full quarters.
Duquesne may be able to get by Valparaiso next week without a complete effort from everybody, but the NEC schedule is a different story. (For the record, I hope that the Dukes CRUSH Valpo. 52-or-more to 0 would be nice.)
The talent is there. I'm sure the will is there. The execution has not been. As a coach, I put that responsibility square upon the shoulders of the coaching staff. The difference will be between an undefeated NEC season and a trip to the playoffs, or a middle-of-the-pack finish in the NEC and the thoughts of what could have been.
To the team and to the coaches I say, "It's there for the taking, gentlemen. Don't waste this opportunity!"
