Return To Excellence 11/4/2018 Morgan State University
Thought just crossed my mind regarding Morgan State University final home game coming up this coming Saturday. Delaware State Hornets are coming to Earl Banks Field on a 2 game winning streak. The Hornets have defeated North Carolina Central University's Eagles and the Savannah State University Tigers on successive weekends rather convincingly. While Morgan State University is coming to the Senior Day Game on Saturday on a three-game losing streak. Although it looks as if our Morgan State University Bears have found a potential star in the making with Saturday's performance by redshirt freshman quarterback, DJ Golatt, from Riverdale Baptist HS in Largo, Maryland who threw for over 250 yards in Saturday's loss to Bethune Cookman. The challenge for the Bears this coming Saturday will be facing a stout Hornet's defense that has only allowed 21 points during its previous two games. This will be an opportunity for the Morgan Bears to climb out of the MEAC cellar and show some on the field promise heading into the final game in two weeks as they face the Norfolk State University Spartans on that team's Senior Day. This season has been a difficult one for Head Coach Ernest T. Jones and his staff. The one highlight was the winning field goal by Alex Raya at the final gun in Greensboro, NC as "The Bears" ended the 15-game winning streak of the North Carolina A&T Aggies. Other than that game the season has been a reenactment of the 5 previous seasons with a loss after a loss followed by another loss sprinkled in with a couple of wins. The current cycle of losing football games has got to end because the Morgan State University Boosters lead by James Msu Wills are demanding a return to excellence for our football team. If this staff cannot answer the call the Bear Boosters will demand a change in leadership. They will demand that the university's leadership hire a captain who fully understands the historical prominence of Morgan State University Football. The Bear Booster will accept nothing less than athletic excellence from our current and future players. The legacy of Morgan State University demands that we recover our greatness. We will not accept winning just a homecoming game in a season. Our Morgan State University students, alumni, and friends want to see new trophies added to the championship trophies of yesteryears. We will deserve nothing less. Go Bears!
