Grambling State University is not a fan of the fine handed down by the Southwestern Athletic Conference for forfeiting their game against Jackson State last month.

The conference fined the school $50,000 for not showing up to Jackson State's homecoming game when Grambling players boycotted.

University spokesman Will Sutton said it was not the university's fault the game wasn't played.  He said they took all the appropriate actions they could have made to make the game happen.

The conference also told Grambling State the next three football games between the two schools will be played at Jackson State.  However, Grambling State balked at the total $305,000 cost for the fine plus travel expenses.

Grambling State has filed an appeal.
