Entire Grambling team skips practice after dispute with administration


According to a report from the Shreveport Times, the entire Grambling State football team failed to attend practice on Wednesday after a dispute with the school’s administration on Tuesday.

Per the report, the meeting was to address travel situations to certain games, as well as the frustrations of the players following the firing of head coach Doug Williams back in September. The meeting steadily went downhill and the players left.

For some time, it’s been noted that the players are growing increasingly unhappy with the way the higher-ups are handling things such as meals, long bus rides to far away games and poor facilities.

The lowly travel accommodations for the team’s recent trip to Indianapolis only fueled this incident even further, according to a source that spoke to the newspaper:

“It was basically a mutiny,” the source said. “(The team) rode the bus all that way (to Indianapolis), and then come back and are disrespected like that (in Tuesday’s meeting).
