SWAC to punish Grambling
OTL: Grambling State Protest
The SWAC did not announce exact figures in its release but said the fine would be issued in accordance to the league's bylaws. Grambling spokesman Will Sutton has said previously that amount is $20,000. Grambling must also play at Jackson State the next three seasons.
Grambling's players staged a boycott of the Jackson State game because of issues that included rundown facilities, long bus trips to road games and personnel decisions.
The SWAC also said Grambling will pay Jackson State an undisclosed amount from its "future distribution amounts" to help Jackson State recoup lost money from the Oct. 19 cancellation.
