The Albany State Golden Rams are far from dead on the football field.
But at 0-2, they're nowhere close to where they want to be.
Head coach Mike White calls this Saturday's game against Elizabeth City State a "must win."
No team wants to fall to 0-3, but certainly not the Rams, who pegged this a comeback year after a disappointing 2012.
But White says the team's leaders are doing their job, keeping the team's morale up and pushing despite being winless.
"Our leaders have done a good job," White says. Our seniors have done a good job at being positive, and going forward with getting ready for this game.
"It'll start a train to get rolling," says WR Jessie Watkins of the elusive first win. "Once that train gets to rolling, we'll be a force to deal with."
ASU lost a heartbreaker at ECSU last year, missing two extra points and falling 13-12.
The Rams look for revenge when they kick off against the Vikings at 7 p.m. at the ASU Coliseum Saturday night.
