Dayton Flyers to upgrade football schedule in order to reach playoffs

The Dayton Flyers have always wanted a shot at the schools like Robert Morris and Duquesne, which are a part of the maximum-scholarship Football Championship Subdivision programs that compete for national titles, thinking that they can play a close game and possibly pull off an upset.

In 2010, the Flyers split with two teams from the scholarship Northeast Conference, beating Robert Morris but losing 35-31 at Duquesne.

Robert Morris was in the playoffs last year, winning the NEC’s automatic bid. If the Flyers had beaten Duquesne, they wouldn’t been in the top 20 and the playoffs would’ve been a reality.

Next year, UD will open against Illinois State and in 2013 they’ll open against Youngstown State, both games being on the road.

In those games, Dayton will be out-scholarshipped 63-0.

From 2012 and moving forward, the Flyers are committed to playing scholarship teams from the FCS (formerly Division I-AA) for their three non-conference games in an attempt to get to the postseason playoffs.

The criteria for teams from the non-scholarship Pioneer Football League to earn an at-large berth to the playoffs are to beat two FCS teams that give full rides, win their conference and finish in the Top 20 in the national poll.

In 2010, Dayton missed the top 20 by just a few points at 25th.

In the future, the FCS playoffs will be expanded from 20 to 22 or 24 teams.

Devin Searcy

The Dayton Flyers’ defense came up strong early and late, and edged Duquesne 64-63 at the UD Arena on Saturday afternoon. The Flyers trailed 58-52 with 4:33 left, but finished with a 12-5 run. Chris Wright, the Flyers’ leading scorer and all-time leader in blocked shots, scored only four points, but had nine rebounds, blocked a shot with 1:40 remaining, and stole the inbounds pass in the final seconds. It was the 17th game in a row that Wright has blocked a shot. The Flyers held Duquesne 17 points under its average, and avenged an 82-64 loss to the Dukes three weeks ago.

Devin Searcy had a double-double off the bench for the Flyers with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Chris Johnson of Columbus Brookhaven added 14 points, and started the Flyers’ comeback with a basket and a 3-pointer, before Wright’s block. The Flyers, who lead the Atlantic 10 in rebounds, dominated the backboards with a 48-22 advantage.

The Flyers led 22-14 with 7:35 left in the first half, but the Dukes scored 23 points, with Bill Clark hitting three 3-pointers in a four minute span, the rest of the way to take a 37-34 halftime lead. The Flyers’ bench had almost half of their first half points, with Searcy leading the team with 10 points.

Clark led all scorers with 17 points, hitting five of 12 three-pointers, but was only one for five on three-pointers in the second half. Flyers’ freshman Juwan Staten, who leads the Atlantic 10 with 6 assists a game, had only one assist, but scored 13 points and hit three free throws in the last 29 seconds.

With the win, the Flyers’ class of 2011 of Searcy, Wright, walk-ons Logan Nourse and Peter Zesterman matched the Dayton classes of 2010 and 1955 for the most career wins in program history (94).

The Flyers are now 19-9 and 7-6 in the Atlantic 10 play, and the Dukes fell to 17-8 and 9-3 in conference play. Duquesne has now lost three of its last four, and its last three road games.

Dayton is back in action Sunday, February 27 at 1 p.m. ET when the Flyers host Xavier at UD Arena.

This is the fifth career PFL Player of the Week Award for the 2006 Solon (Ohio) High School graduate.

The Flyers next home game is Saturday, September 18 when they open up the Pioneer Football League schedule against Morehead State.
