IUP finally won but...

| 79 Comments | No TrackBacks

IUP finally broke the streak. It finally gave Head Coach Lou Tepper his 100th career win. The defeated Lock Haven 63-31. Harvie Tuck and Terrell Washington stood out from the rest with Washington winning PSAC West Defensive Player of the Week with his performance. IUP seems well with IUP. The Crimson Hawks are 5-5 and will have on more week to avoid a second consecutive losing season.

Wait a minute.

Lock Haven scored how much?

Lock Haven scored 31 points?

Really?

No. They couldn't have. They did?

You mean to tell me that the Bald Eagles scored 31 points. They averaged 10 points per game into the IUP game. Oh, I know how, IUP's secondary that's how.

IUP did a lot of things right against Lock Haven. It gained 278 yards and forced LHU into four turnovers.

What it did wrong was allow a team that hasn't won a game since November of 2007, and is statistically the worst offense in the conference to score 31 points.

I must give Lock Haven credit, however. The Bald Eagles didn't even compete against IUP last season and showed marginal improvement this season. They played as hard as they could and never stopped playing until the clock read triple zeros. Lock Haven actually looked like a football this year as to usually looking like a bunch of guys who just so happen to have helmet and shoulder pads on. Lock Haven's only problem was that it was overmatched.

Usually a game that ends with a score of 63-31 it is more of indictment of how bad the losing team is, but in this case it is indictment of how much IUP has to work on. Although Lock Haven has improved, it should be good enough to score 31 points against anyone.

Even when IUP wins, it still finds way to lose. The Hawks should be happy about the win as they haven't had much to be happy about since they played Slippery Rock, but they should take a long look at themselves. Soul searching if you will because if Lock Haven scored 10 points, it would have been something of note, but it scored triple that amount.

The secondary was beat on numerous occasions where the Bald Eagles just caught them napping.

The last hope of IUP avoiding back-to-back losing season for the first time since that faithful 1982 season is next week when it hosts West Chester. I can almost promise West Chester is better than Lock Haven.

Needless to say, IUP has a lot of work to do.
