After Grambling player revolt, game at Jackson State canceled

Hours after Grambling State University president Frank Pogue reiterated his support for the school's athletic program and football team Friday morning, only 22 members of the team showed up for their bus ride to Jackson, Miss., where they were scheduled to play Jackson State on Saturday. Jackson State officials said that the game has been canceled and tickets will be refunded. Former coach Doug Williams, who was fired from his position on Sept. 11, said in a text on Friday afternoon, "I'm proud of them boys. They took a stance." (USA Today)
