Cory Diaz USA Today Network Published 8:45 p.m. UTC Jun 28, 2018 GRAMBLING – Mark your calendars GramFam, a couple of changes have been made to Grambling State’s 2018 football schedule. GSU’s home opener on Sept. 15 versus Bacone College, a school that avoided complete institutional shutdown this summer after cutting most of its operating expenses by eliminating athletics and laying off much of its faculty and staff, has officially come off the team’s 11-game slate.

That change moves the G-Men’s first home game of 2018 to the following week when they open up SWAC play hosting Alabama State Sept. 22 at Eddie G. Robinson Memorial Stadium for High School Day.

"It (St. Paul's) will not suffer any irreparable harm without an injunction," the brief stated. "The balance of harms weighs heavily in favor of the AHSAA, and a preliminary injunction would not be in the public interest." "Arbitrary" and "reckless" St. Paul's, a Mobile private school that won five AHSAA championships during the 2017-18 school year, filed a federal civil lawsuit May 24 against the AHSAA and Executive Director Steve Savarese. The school is … [Read more...] about AHSAA says injunction would trigger ‘Herculean effort’ for football schedules
