Grambling won't stop 'until we bring it home'

GRAMBLING, Louisiana — It may sound nit-picky of anyone associated with Grambling's football program to not be entirely satisfied with what the Tigers' have going on.

Grambling has won 15 straight league games dating back to 2014 and is running through Southwestern Athletic Conference teams this year by an average margin of victory of 37.1 points per game.

Yet the Tigers still feel their appetite isn't quenched.

"We're not satisfied with 59-17 or 70-0, because at the end of the day, we did all that last year and we came out with nothing on our fingers and no trophy to hold," Grambling tight ends coach Robert Bailey said Monday. "At this point, we're getting the pats on the backs about 15 games in conference in a row, outscoring opponents this many points. All that stuff is good, but at the end of the day, we gotta bring it home, and we're not going to stop until we bring it home."

A SWAC title is what Grambling wants to bring home, along with a Celebration Bowl trophy. Until that's accomplished, Grambling has no intention of slowing down.

Case in point is Grambling's latest 56-17 win over Alabama A&M. It was a nice win on paper, but it left the staff, at least the assistants like Bailey and Quentin Burrell, who is a defensive assistant, wanting more.
