The players and administrators at Grambling State may have cleared things up from last year’s strike, but Jackson State isn’t quite satisfied. Nick Birdsong of Al.com is reporting that JSU is seeking legal action against Grambling and possibly the SWAC for the missed game after it says it lost $600,000 on the game, scheduled for Oct. 19.

Open records request done by the Clarion-Ledger revealed JSU has been attempting to get the Mississippi Attorney general to pursue the matter for five months. 

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js JSU council contacted the state’s deputy attorney general back in November. Attorney general Jim Hood has now decided to look into JSU’s inquiry. 

A representative from JSU said missing the game forced the school’s athletic budget out of balance for the first time in years.

This one isn’t going away any time soon. Can’t blame JSU, but if Grambling State’s program is in as much financial trouble as it says it is, this could set them back big time.
