With an NCAA berth in Division II the stated goal, C.W. Post did not expect to start its football season with two losses in the first three games.
A meeting with non-conference Mercyhurst yesterday was supposed to assuage the wounds of a punishing loss to nationally ranked California (Pa.) a week ago.
"I guess you could say we almost looked past them,'' linebacker Sean Smith said after Mercyhurst stunned Post, 28-20. "We were ready for a 2-1 record. They came with some different formations that we weren't ready for, we didn't make plays we needed to, we missed some tackles. We didn't play a good game, we didn't play our game.''

That quote from Sean Smith is pretty scary but makes sense given the outcome of the game. And I can understand where he's coming from. As a broadcaster, I expected CW post to go 2-1 and roll over the Lakers. If you listened to the game yesterday, you could tell that neither myself or Ryan Pettys could have predicted that type of game.
We'll be with the team this upcoming week in Shippensburg, PA to hopefully see the Pioneers move to .500 on the season.
