Default Grambling State players refuse to play

Quote:
Grambling State on Friday canceled its football game against Jackson State after Grambling's disgruntled players refused to travel to Jackson for the game Saturday.

The players -- upset with travel policies, poor facility conditions and a tumultuous coaching situation -- made a decision not to play at a team meeting Friday afternoon, a player told ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

"We aren't playing," the player said.

Jackson State spokesman Wesley Peterson told The Associated Press on Friday that Grambling officials contacted JSU at about 6 p.m. ET and informed the school of the decision.

This is crazy. I've never heard of a program that was so far down in the dumps.

UPDATE: Read the story, get the details. This isn't some petty little temper tantrum, people.
