They fired the Head Coach, former Redskin and super bowl winner Doug William, three weeks ago which started the ball rolling. Many of the players were upset over this. Then the last couple weeks they have had long road trips that they were supposed to fly too but had to bus it. There are some allegations that the Administration is mishandling the funds that the football team generates. The short of it is players are refusing to get on this bus for their road trip to Jackson State this weekend.

They were talking about it on my drive home, on WWL in New Orleans and they had a reporter from Shreveport on. He said they had a rally yesterday with a bunch of students supporting the players so it should be interesting to see how it plays out. Sounds like the school is really struggling for money. 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.

The game was cancelled but what gets me is the buses supposedly left without the players. If the players didn't go why did the buses roll? While I think the players are acting like a bunch of little punks I do have to wonder about 750 mile 15 hour buses rides to play a game

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

Yeah and the fact that they are taking extra long trips to like the Circle City Classic in Indy in order to generate extra revenue for the whole athletics department and the football team is stuck taking the bus when they are bringing in all of the cash. I don't know, I'd have to reserve judgement till all of the facts come out, because it sounds like there could be some shenanigans going on.

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

I would suggest you read the Sports Illustrated article before you just make an assumption like this.

Dig deeper and see what's going on, not just the ticker.

Some things in life are worth looking at beyond the 10-second sentence fragment you catch out of the corner of your eye brought to you by a sports network that is the broadcast equivalent of a frontal lobotomy

Isn't Grambling a public school? If so, the state may share some of the blame.

Or maybe Grambling is just the college version of Detroit...lots of corruption.

I am with them on this move... they want improved facilities, and someone who is going to make football fun for them... if Football wasn't fun for our boys, I would expect them to do the same thing. This is a HUGE move for the Tigers of Grambling State, and I applaud them for their stance. They want improvement beginning with the head, and they are willing to sacrifice a game or more until SOMETHING changes. Good for them.
