I think the bye week helped. Felt like effort was much better today. Tyray Devezin is a beast. Had a huge day, including the coffin nail with that last 56 yard TD run.
I thought the defense played really well. A little squeaky at the end of the game, but solid against a great passer and great running back for VMI.
I thought our offensive play calling was more aggressive, which I love. The fake punt, forever now known as The Ellington (he had a TD on the same play as a freshman against Western Carolina) and some confident 4th down go-for-its.
The huge downside are the injuries. Have no idea the severity, but Coneway going out stinks and the Riddle injury was brutal. Thinking about those guys, particularly #10. Not a doctor and know nothing about it, but he's potentially having surgery as we speak, or pretty darn soon. Prayers for those guys and their families.
Come all ye loyal sons and daughters, ring out the victory song. United all each foe we'll conquer. The battle now will not be long. The Orange and Black is proudly flying like a sign high in the sky, That leads us all in triumph. For Mercer we will live and die!
