For Grambling State, the offseason has been a long and frustrating one following last year’s 1-10 campaign for the tickets.
But now the Tigers are preparing to put the spectre of the 2012 season behind them for good as GSU plays host to Alabama A&M at 6 p.m. Saturday to open the 2013 slate.
GSU coach Doug Williams said Monday that he expects a good crowd to open the season at Robinson Stadium but admitted it feels a little strange starting things off with Alabama A&M as opposed to Alcorn State.

Judd, Cathy mug NEW.jpg

School is back in session. If you haven’t gotten back into a routine, which has never been one of my strong virtues, I want to share tips for controlling that morning madness:
