It’s been an up and down couple weeks for Grambling State University football.
Grambling lost last week to Alcorn State 20-24.
The team enters the sixth week of the season with a 2-3 record and currently fifth place in the SWAC West.
However, students are optimistic the G-Men will have a strong finish to the season.
Sascha Greene is very confident that the G-Men can make a turn around in the season.
Greene is a student athlete at Grambling State University where she is majoring in Kinesiology.
Greene is from Flint, Mich.
She had a lot to say about the G-Men and their potential talent.
The students of Grambling state have confidence in their G-Men to end the season off strong.
The G-Men have been struggling for the last couple weeks, and look forward to making a comeback for the playoffs.
“The team has the most potential to win out and could earn a spot in the playoffs,” Green said. Grambling started the season off 1-2winning the season opener versus Tennessee State and then losing their second and third games respectively to the University of Southern Mississippi and the University of Houston.
“I feel that the Grambling State can get things turned around if they just regroup and get things going,” Sascha said.
The G-Men came back with a big win against Alabama A&M two weeks ago – that saw the entrance of freshman quarterback Noah Bodden – and then lost last week to Prairie View A&M 24-10.
Greene said despite the team’s record there were plenty of plays that showed that the G-Men had talent and potential.
“There were catches I feel the receivers would have made to ice the game, but wasn’t able to come up with game changing plays,” Greene said of the PVAM loss.
“There were plays Prairie View shouldn’t have made such as pass and run plays,” Greene said.
There were plenty of stops the Tigers made throughout the game that helped in the first half of the game. The G-Men played a very good Prairie View team this year. There were mistakes that occurred in the first half that hurt them later in the second half of the game.
The team made plenty of changes during the game. There was a major quarterback change made towards the end of the game.
In that game Bodden first had his chance to show his skills.
“Grambling State has the talent to be a high caliber team, they just have to make a change in the scheme,” said Greene.
Greene said the G-Men could turn things around if the defense was more consistent in coverage.
Students are very optimistic about the G-Men finishing the season hard.
Over the next few games the Tigers have an opportunity to win out and make the playoffs.
