I understand the players issues, I dont think they are handling it the right way but from what I have read the why the administration is handling the athletic programs there is ridiculous.
the floor in the weight room is old and badly needs replacing it, prior to being fired Williams arranges for donations to be made to pay for new flooring, the donations are brought in and the flooring is bought...the administration then refuses to install it because of the ongoing pissing match between the administration and Williams and puts it into storage.
lack of adequate training materials
apparently lack of an adequate coaching staff (not that the coaches are necessarily bad just that they dont have enough of them (only 6 full time coaches right now apparently)
bus trips of 650 and 750 miles with apparently a lack of food (at least according to one article).
like I said I don't really agree with the way they are going about it but the players appear to have legitimate concerns
