Midwestern State continued to make clutch plays to win tight games in 2016, but the Mustangs weren’t really as good defensively as 10-year coordinator Rich Renner would have liked.
Yards and points aren’t the tell-all measuring sticks they might have been in some eras. However, MSU doesn’t want to finish seventh in the Lone Star Conference in points allowed (28 per game) and ninth in interceptions again, either.
Graduation and injuries had taken a toll last year at linebacker and Renner felt that showed at times. The youthful energy would fly to the ball sometimes, but also make a few missteps.
“My hair probably got a lot grayer last year because I was dealing with redshirt freshmen,” Renner said.
