An intervention specialist major from Sidney, Ohio, Langhorst was named to the First Team All Academic PFL and First Team All-PFL just last week. The talented defensive end was among the PFL’s leaders in sacks (2nd, 1.23 per game), tackles for loss (3rd, 1.64) and tackles (5th, 7.09).  He was also 7th in the Football Championship Subdivision in sacks.  Langhorst had 31 solo hits (2nd on the team), eight QB hurries (double anyone else on the team), a fumble recovered and a fumble forced.
Joining Langhorst on the third team from the PFL is Jordan Ridley, a Butler linebacker, Billy Janssen, a Drake punter, and two defensive linemen from San Diego, Blake Oliaro and Mario Kurn.

Lack of success at Ole Miss leads Nutt to resign

Two years ago, Mississippi Rebels head coach Houston Nutt seemed to have his football program on the upswing.

The Arkansas native arrived in Oxford, Mississippi after a 10-year career at SEC rival Arkansas and he helped lead the Rebels off to a good start of 18-8 during the first two years which included Cotton Bowl wins over Texas Tech and Oklahoma State in back-to-back years.

The Rebels had not enjoyed that kind of success two seasons in a row in almost 40 years. But everyone overlooked the fact that Nutt achieved success with the players left over from previous head coach Ed Orgeron. He could not upgrade the roster with his own recruits.

That is the reason why on Monday, the 54-year-old Nutt announced he’ll resign at the end of the season. He’ll stay on to coach the final three games against Louisiana Tech, LSU and Mississippi State, according to Rebels athletic director Pete Boone.

Ole Miss has lost 12 straight SEC football games, including the 30-13 debacle last Saturday against Kentucky. The Rebels are a disappointing 2-7, 0-6 in the tough SEC this year.

Nutt, who is earning $2.7 million this season, has a 24-23 record at Ole Miss.

The downward spiral for Nutt and his program was in the 2010 season opener, when Jacksonville State upset the Rebels in double overtime 49-48. The fans in Oxford were appalled and called for his resignation. That was the first time in the school’s football history that the Rebels had lost to a Football Championship Subdivision team.

The Rebels can’t seem to find and keep a football coach for long. The next hiring will be their fifth since 1998 and third since 2007.

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.

Dayton Flyers use eight sacks to win at Robert Morris

Will Bardo

The University of Dayton Flyers football team extended its winning streak to 10 games over two seasons as they pulled out a hard-fought 19-13 win at Moon Township, Pennsylvania beating Robert Morris College in the season opener for both teams.

That streak is the longest active streak in NCAA’s Football Championship Subdivision after FCS defending champion Eastern Washington lost at Washington 30-27 in its opening game.

Dayton’s defense made the difference in the game, forcing two turnovers and sacking Robert Morris quarterback Jeff Sinclair eight times. Seven different Dayton players were in on the sacks, led by Devon Langhorst’s 2.5.

Will Bardo, a redshirt freshman playing in his first game and first start ever, was 14 of 24 for 180 yards and two touchdowns.

Safety Steve Wirkus led the Flyer defensive unit with nine hits, including seven solo tackles. His acrobatic interception late in the first half set up UD’s go-ahead touchdown, and he also was responsible for batting down a pass at the goal line that prevented Robert Morris from scoring on its final possession of the third quarter.

Lambert will receive a six-year deal worth $250,000 annually.

The new coach said he has hired West Virginia offensive coordinator Jeff Mullen to run the offense.

The athletic department has given him permission to hire two more assistant coaches at the immediate moment to begin recruiting for a redshirt freshmen class that will arrive on campus in the fall of 2012.
