Missouri Southern's first team offense and defense held off the reserves 6-0 in the annual Green-Gold spring game at Fred G. Hughes Stadium. Both sophomore quarterbacks Jay McDowell and Ricky Nichols showed promise running the ball, even in a game where they could not be tackled. In fact, coach Daryl Daye blew a 4th down play dead as Nichols appeared to cross the goal line in the 4th quarter.
Missouri Southern's just four practices in to spring ball, but they're already throwing the ball more than they did in 2012. Head coach Daryl Daye says the nucleus of the offense will still be the triple option, but with sophomore-to-be Jay McDowell at QB they plan to be more balanced with the pass than the more-than-5-rushes-to-1-pass ratio of last season.
