Grambling State has had four head coaches over the past six years.
A season ago, the Tigers were ruled ineligible for the postseason due to low Academic Progress Rate scores.
On Wednesday night, Grambling State was eliminated in the quarterfinal round of the SWAC Tournament, thus completely a 0-28 season.
Those are the facts, plain and simple.
The good news is that it can’t get much uglier for the Grambling State program. Or, at least you would assume so.
Now, here’s the twist: Just two years ago, Grambling State played in the SWAC Championship and had an opportunity to go to the NCAA Tournament.
How did they fall from that point of success to a winless season so quickly?
Or for that matter, why would we care?
Head coach Joseph Price faces the difficulty of getting the Tigers out of this unforeseen hole. Yet, it must be hard on the players. Terry Rose averaged over 14 points per game this season, but besides him, their next highest scorer averaged only six per contest.
Grambling State ranked 347th in the nation, averaging only 49 points per game. No wonder they didn’t win a game all year.
It’s a sad, but interesting story line considering the disappointing season that Grambling State has endured. It’s even more interesting to see just how they have fallen so quickly in a two year period.
Well Grambling State, the good news is this; it can’t get much worse than that, so keep pressing forward from here.
