TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Following a 28-21 win against Central Missouri where his son, Mitch, shined at quarterback, Craig Schurig wasn't expecting what he saw out of Washburn against Missouri Western.
The Ichabods turned the ball over four times in a 38-7 loss to the Griffons, which was their largest loss of the season. It showed the inconsistency that has plagued them so far this year.
Craig Schurig blames some tentative play. He wants his players to stop thinking as much and attack.
"Sometimes, when you have explosive players, you kind of wait for them to make a play and then everyone gets going," Schurig said. "And you can sit back and wait. So our message has kind of been hey, you got to take it upon yourself to do the job each and every play."
The Ichabods have a prime chance to bounce back at home. They'll host a Northeastern State team that's 0-5 this year.
"There's a lot of guys that are really mad about the last game," wide receiver JJ Brania-Hopp said. "So, we're trying to channel that energy into the next team."
