With a third of the 2013 college football season now in the books, some teams are still looking to hit their stride. Craig Haley of the The Sports Network put out a list of teams that he feels are better than their record, including Arkansas-Pine Bluff and Florida A&M.
Here’s what Haley had to say about UAPB:
Arkansas-Pine Bluff (0-4) – The winless record doesn’t make a lot of sense for a veteran squad that won the SWAC title last season. Saturday’s trip to Jackson State, last year’s conference runner-up, doesn’t help the cause. Or is it exactly what the Golden Lion need to get the rest of their season headed in the right direction?
As for FAMU:
Florida A&M (1-3) – At least the Rattlers haven’t played a MEAC game yet. The difficult three-game run of Tennessee State, Samford and Ohio State is over, so the next three-game run of Morgan State, Savannah State and Howard must sound inviting to quarterback Damien Fleming, who hasn’t been nearly as good as a year ago.
Is Haley right? Are these teams due for a turnaround, or are they really as bad as their records indicate?
