GSU dismissing hype
GRAMBLING — When the subject matter touches on hype for a sporting event, the annual “Bayou Classic” looms as tall as Mount Everest.
Thus, the need for head coaches at Grambling State University and Southern University to remind their players that distractions are inevitable.
“That’s to be expected with the ‘Bayou Classic’ because both schools and their fans build up for this every year,” said GSU Head Coach Doug Williams. “This is the game that everybody, all year long, waits for and the hype and all of the distractions that go with it are going to be there.”
