No comment is bad policy
A good example of this is the current friction with Grambling State University and Talladega College, set to play a basketball game earlier this week that was cancelled. The kicker of that cancellation is that it came once Talladega’s team was already here.
Talladega coach Matt Cross said the situation played out like this — GSU said Tuesday’s game would be delayed because they needed to wait for the officials to arrive, which would push back the 7 p.m. tipoff time. He was told about 20 minutes later that the game was off. He asked to reschedule. That suggestion got a cold reception.
