Late night Twitter Trolling and finding plenty of opinions on the Grambling Shutdown. Hopefully the administration will aggressively pursue options to lift up their football program and keep lines of communications open. Looking for Grambling players to move with wisdom, stand firm on high ground and practice patience that will withstand trials to return the longstanding reputation that is Grambling State University to their program.
See you there!

The SGA president did not call them soft. In fact, he expressed deep concern over the team and their struggling season. He also does not "run" a university alone. Even several members of the team have stated that his words were misinterpreted and it's just not a good situation to be in. I wish the G-Men the best of luck. Also, before you berate those mentioned in this article, remember, when dealing with the media, there's no way of knowing what really happened unless you were there. :)
"From August until when they let Doug go, they were focused on (his direction)," (George) Ragsdale said Monday. "Then they changed midstream, and when you're dealing with young people ... that mindset is the toughest thing to deal with."
The fact that Ragsdale would insinuate that young people are tough to deal with is not a good look for a coach, a leader. If I were a football player, I'd be angry too. If you can't lead me to change my mindset and follow your plan of action, how can you lead me on the field? It's impossible.
