Morningside College opens the football season tomorrow at Hastings of Nebraska. The Mustangs were 3-7 a year ago but it could have been a different story. Morningside lost four games in 2003 by a touchdown or less and coach Steve Ryan is hoping for a better fate. Ryan says the Mustangs proved they were competitive last year and now look to take the next step. He says they have to do some of the little things necessary to win ballgames and understand what it takes to win.Ryan says Hastings will be a tough opener, as he says they’ve had a great football program and a great tradition.
