TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Florida A&M Rattlers are still struggling through the 2015 season, a statement Rattler Head Coach Alex Wood used at Tuesday's weekly press conference. FAMU is 1-8 on the year, and for the second time this season, were shutout in their 33-0 loss at Hampton on Saturday.

A large part of the Rattlers problems stem from a lack of offensive production. Kenny Coleman came in to replace Carson Royal at quarterback on Saturday, as Royal led the Rattlers to just 14 total yards of offense in the first half.

Wood said Tuesday that Coleman is a guy you can expect to see a lot more their last two games of the season. Despite the frustration of losing, Wood said this team still has a hunger to finish the season strong.

"It takes effort. Obviously you get going under the situation, but they haven't created any situations or presented any challenges for us," he said. "They come to work and go to work like normal, and hopefully give their best effort every day, in practice and in the game."

Wood and the Rattlers hit the road this week when they travel to Morgan State. Kickoff is set for Saturday at 1:00.
