For the record, Hall wasn't in Regina at all for this game.  They said at the beginning it was sort of being "DC'd by committee" with Young, Younger, and some guy who's name I've never heard up in the booth.

Also for the record, Bob on CJOB post-game show said Hall was gone due to an unexpected death in the family.  He also said guys ripping on Hall (i.e. "D had a great game because Hall was absent") need to show some respect.

I won't comment on this further except to say the D played astoundingly well today.  It was much like the '18 WF, where the D kept us in it almost until the end when they couldn't hold any longer.  Our D showed great heart today, kept excelling at their job even though our O kept blowing opportunities, throwing INTs, and going 2&out all night.  I don't think the D ever quit.

At least we know Hall will be proud of his guys when he comes back and sees the film.

Condolences to the Hall family, however, saying that the D played better without Hall is not being disrespectful, just stating a fact. Sucks he had a death in the family but the D did play better without him, they were more aggressive, even Bob and Doug were saying that.

My condolences and sympathies to Coach Hall and family in this difficult time. The D obviously played inspired football trying to win one for their coach who?s going through a difficult time.

Agree fully that people need to show Hall more respect.  His absence had little to do with out turn around on D.  We made a lot of changes this week and that impacts more than anything.

Agree they were likely inspired.

I doubt that they suddenly overhauled the defence because Hall wasn't there. The secondary just played better than they have.

Alexander made a huge difference, sayonora R.M. Hecht.

I've never understood why Hecht was starting besides experience. Hes a slow; undersized and old career backup. He made a couple plays vs BC then dipped.

I think that it was mostly a ratio decision and that Derek Jones isn't as good as they thought. The only other option was to start Jake Thomas but they needed to wait until Kongbo was ready so that they could rotate them.
