The Grambling University has had a long and historic football program.

Eddie Robinson was the longtime coach there and sent several players to the National Football League: Buck Buchanan, Gary “Big Hands” Johnson, Doug Williams, Paul “Tank” Younger, Willie Brown, Willie Davis, James Harris, Charlie Joiner and Everson Walls.

All of those former players must be shaking their heads about what is happening at one of the top historically black colleges in the United States.

There is turmoil brewing between the football team and the school’s administration over several issues like traveling to away games on busses, a football stadium that needs repairs and the firing of football coaches.

This season alone, the Tigers have had three head coaches. Doug Williams was fired after two games, George Ragsdale was replaced last Thursday by Dennis “Dirt’ Winston.

Grambling officials met this past weekend in an effort to solve problems with the football players and to avoid any more game forfeits.

The officials included university president Frank Pogue, athletic director Aaron James and Winston.

On Saturday, the football players refused to travel to play at Jackson State and thus forfeited the game.

Grambling is planning to play this coming Saturday’s game at home against Texas Southern. The game is very important to the university because its their annual High School Day, which draws in many prospective students from around the Louisiana region.

UNC-Asheville was taken to the promised land by its best player, Dickey who scored 14 of the Bulldogs’ last 18 points in regulation, including a three-point goal with 10.5 seconds to go that tied the game.

It took Dickey a long time to finally heat up; he took only two shots in the first half. The Big South tournament’s MVP was determined to lead his team to victory.

Dayton, Ohio has been a good friend of the Bulldogs (20-13). They also opened in the southwest Ohio town in 2003, when they became the first Big South team to win an NCAA tournament game. They defeated Texas Southern 92-84 in a the play-in for the 65-team field.

Alex Garcia-Mendoza matched his career high with 21 points for Arkansas-Little Rock(19-17). The Trojans played without Solomon Bozeman, the Sun Belt’s player of the year who fouled out with 55 seconds to go in regulation. He finished the game with 18 points.

The Bulldogs will board an airplane and head to Washington, D.C., where the next opponent is Pittsburgh, the Southeast’s #1 seed on Thursday.
