Has Grambling Hit Rock Bottom...??? No--UPDATED

((HT: KTBS-TV Shreveport))

The once proud organization is 0-7 this year and haven't won a game since the 2011 SWAC title game...

They lost 48-0 to Alcorn last week and, now, according to the Shreveport Times, players have walked out of an administrative meeting on Tuesday and skipping a team practice this afternoon.

Here's FOSG Paul Crane... - Shreveport, LA News, Weather and Sports

From the Matt Vines article:

The source said the teams’ frustrations have been boiling over a period time. Those frustrations include what’s considered as general disrespect from administration, not receiving all meals on road trips, taking a bus to distant locations like Kansas City and Indianapolis and the poor state of facilities like the weight room.

Players attended morning weight training until the session abruptly ended after one player was kicked out after voicing his opinion in Tuesday’s meeting. All players left the weight training session.

Vines' source called the walk-out a mutiny...

Updated Thursday afternoon: The Shreveport Times reports interim coach George Ragsdale has been let go and Defensive coordinator Dennis Winston would finish out the season as coach. For now. Also, the team did not practice on Thursday, but intends to play Saturday's game vs. Jackson State.
