Is Grambling liable for Jackson State’s cancelled homecoming game?

As if the team mutiny wasn’t enough, Grambling could be sued for ruining Jackson State’s homecoming.

Jackson State was forced to refund ticket holders after the Grambling football team refused to play Saturday’s game in Jackson. To make matters worse, it was Jackson State’s homecoming, and all the fans got to watch was an inter-squad scrimmage.

Now, the Jackson State athletic department says it’s $500,000 in the hole.
