They say defense wins championships; that might be the Wild’s only route to going deep into the playoffs. The Wild is allowing 192 yards per game, fifth best in the 26-team Indoor Football League. Offensively, however, the Wild is far below average – an unexpected result from an offense expected to produce big numbers behind stars Dixie Wooten, Clinton Solomon and Darius Fudge. The Wild is averaging just 37.56 points a game, 17th in the league, and 144 yards, 18th. Stats, by the way, are courtesy of assistant general manager James Bain. He ran the numbers since the league doesn’t provide basic stats in a readable format.
- Ziya Gunay’s latest stint as the Wild’s kicker didn’t last long. He missed two extra points in the Wild’s close victory at winless Colorado and has been replaced by Nathan Stokes, who kicked at Missouri State.
- The team has also brought back Kevin McAlmont, a lineman who has arenafootball2, AFL and Wild experience.
