I would much rather take last night's performance over a 57-31 score like Houston Baptist last year. I think the defense was much improved but I know most if not all of our remaining opponents won't fumble the ball away four times, and will finish all the scoring opportunities that Northwestern State let slip away. Don't remember seeing the defense get as many sacks or force as many turnovers as we did last night. Also happy the defense didn't let the Demons sneak in a buzzer-beater TD at the end.
I was OK with not opening up the playbook much and forcing Ruder to make mistakes. The OL played great and let Torrey shine, allowed no sacks and really the only bad play that stands out was the hit that led to Ruder's first interception.
Overall, I'm hopeful for a 2-4 record at least over the next six and that we will see a lot of green in Dallas next weekend as the crowd wasn't particularly amped up last night.
