The Season Is Bright

The Texas Southern University football team are currently .500 in standings after four games. The former head coach Darrell Asberry was relieved of his duties at the end of the season last year. The university decided to bring in a new coaching regime with Michael Haywood at the helm.
“We believe that we have brought in the right guy to turnaround this football program said,” Charles McClelland.
Coach Michael Haywood has brought different aspects to this football team such as: physicality, conditioning, and discipline.
“The hardest thing is conditioning, there is no walking on the green, said Jarius Moore.
The coaching staff has not put up with any nonsense this season no matter who the player is.
The former Texas Southern wide receiver was removed from the team after he showed up to practice an hour and a half. Later in the practice Griffin did not take some constructive criticism easily and cussed out one of the coaches. The news was out later that day that Griffin was removed from the team.
The Tigers now have completed the first four games on their schedule and they are two and two.
The Tigers first game was the annual Labor Day Classic against Prairie View A&M. The game had two-hour rain delay The Tigers lost the game and also lost their starting quarterback Jay Christophe for the rest of the season.
The next game for the Tigers was against the Houston Baptist Huskies in a game which they were favored to win. The Tigers were not able to beat Huskies due to offensive line play and the defense giving up 300 yards on the ground.
The third game on the schedule for the Tigers was against the Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils. Coach Haywood and the Tigers blew out the Delta Devils 31-0. Offensive Coordinator Greg Gregory finally implemented a no huddle offense that help quarterback Averion Hurts and the offensive line.
“We are trying to develop a touch physical football,” said Coach Gregory.
The last game so far for the Tigers was against the Alabama State Hornets in which they were able to stage a fourth quarter comeback to win the game.
The defense of the Tigers has been able to keep them in every game this season. The teams two loses were by a combined eight points.
The defensive coordinator Tom Anthony is liking the way his defense has looked so far this season.
“They have bought in from spring to now,” said Anthony “I love our intensity and leadership.” “I am really happy with where we are.”
The toughest part of the schedule for the Tigers are coming up. They have to still play Southern, Grambling State, and Alcorn State. The Tigers were only able to win three games under the Asberry last season. The fans are looking for more this season.
“I expect the team to win seven games this season,” said Robert Harris Jr.
The Tigers have seven games remaining on their schedule and it could be possible for them to win seven games if they keep playing the way they have this season.
