For 55 years, the legendary coach Eddie Robinson built Grambling State University’s football program almost from nothing. Under Robinson’s watch, the small school in northern Louisiana sent players to the NFL and broke the NCAA’s record for wins. But Robinson is long gone and this year the Grambling State Tigers are winless. Last week, the team boycotted, forcing Grabling State to forfeit to Jackson State University. What’s happened to Grambling? Melissa Block talks to Sports Illustrated senior writer George Dohrmann about the boycott.
