One of the player's complaints was about the floor in the weight room being unsafe. A private donor came up with the cash to fix it, but it hasn't been fixed, so there are questions about what happened to the money. Nothing would surprise me in Louisiana.
Doug Williams the original coach this year raised money through a private alumni group. But since the money didn't come through the school's foundation the AD and school Pres ordered the new mats (that replaced safety hazard) stored in a different building and not be used. The next week the school fired Williams. Sounds to me like Pres didn't get his cut
