Asked to explain his thought process behind the quarterback switch in the fourth quarter, coach Donald Hill-Eley said Tuesday morning, "I thought Council was doing well with what he was doing. [Offensive coordinator Gordon] Gregory maintains the tempo of that offense and Council was doing well. He had some things and he had some balls get away from him, and at that late in the game, when you throw an interception and it leads to a touchdown, you can just see the morale in the guys go, 'Aw, man!' And now to have Seth who was still injured, it was like he was ready to go, and the kids were like, 'Let's go.' He went out and he performed at that level. It added to the whole morale of the team and the guys around him. I think what we needed to do at that particular time was more telling for a Seth Higgins than a Robert Council."
