  1. Congrats to Clyde Edwards… he had a big day in his final home game for Grambling. A class young man who has represented his family and Grambling well.

  2. Congratulations go out to Clyde Edwards for his many contributions to Grambling State University Football and the SWAC as a whole. Clyde is not only a class guy on the field but he is one of the shining examples of a SWAC STUDENT ATHLETE as he places top priority on his educational goals. Clyde is the type of student athlete that helps in recruiting the type of kids that help our universities to survive and prosper. Thanks Clyde.

    We thought YOU knew!

    At the beginning of the game, TSU’s band broke in and started playing while Gram’s band was playing our fight song…. but that’s okay, we tied a knot in that raggedy TSU tiger tail…

  4. Yea..what was up with that? TSU’s awful band marched in late…like they actually were going to do something. Then they played annoying music during the entire game, giving me a headache. They should’ve helped their poor football team. They really should’ve stayed in Houston, but who could blame them for wanting to come to GSU’s homecoming? By the way Tiger fans, have you ever known ANYONE to play GSU for their homecoming? LOL!
