Is Grambling State University turning into Tea Party and wanting to limit food stamps to the needy?
The football players of Grambling are standing up for what they believe in by not playing Saturday against Jackson State. The team also did not want to play for the interim head coach and did not practice last week. Jackson State also did not have a good Saturday. It was their homecoming, so the university did lose a great deal of money.
The team is complaining about various issues like mildew on pads and in the facilities, purchasing Gatorade out of their own pockets, poor travel arrangements, and awful weight rooms.
This is a disgusting situation. Legends like Eddie Robinson and Doug Williams have coached at Grambling. Frank Lewis, Willie Brown, and Ronnie Coleman all played for the school.
The Tigers are due to take the field again next Saturday against Texas Southern University. The theme is High School Day.
Homecoming is on November 2, so this situation needs to be handled immediately.
