Ram Ramblings: WSSU finally runs out of spare parts in 7-0 loss to Shepherd

SHEPHERDTOWN, West Virginia  --  It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a better defense than what Winston-Salem State has put on the field over the last three seasons. I finally saw one better this afternoon in Shepherd, an aggressive bunch who aren’t very big but are very quick.

It’s tough to say how things would have turned out if quarterback Rudy Johnson wouldn’t have suffered a collarbone injury in the first quarter after he got sacked. Johnson never did come back into the game and it was up to the seldom-used DeShean Townsend to try and get WSSU on the board.
To be fair, Townsend, who is 6-3 and 240 pounds, hadn’t been thrust into any meaningful game in his three seasons with the Rams. He’s been the consummate scout-team player and is one of the more vocal players on the team and has a great nickname – “The Big Show.”
