Cru Nuggets: Observations from UMHB football’s 52-7 victory over Southwestern

The ‘21 UMHB defense held true to the Cru legacy of being downright nasty. The new scheme seems to have remedied the problem in 2019 of consistently not setting the edge against the run. That has resulted in wreaking even more havoc in the opponent’s backfield. Interior linemen consistently penetrated the line of scrimmage, blew up run plays and forced Southwestern quarterback Landry Gilpin to throw early, scramble or take a sack.
