Grambling football coming together like a 'tasty gumbo'

GRAMBLING, Louisiana —  Banking deposits and purple unicorns were talking points at Grambling during the past few weeks.

With Thanksgiving coming up in just a few weeks, it was time for food, and more specifically gumbo, to enter the discussion.

During the course of the season, Grambling's football team started with a base, or a roux, added protein and vegetables on the way and finished it off with some spices.

And boy is it tasting pretty good. Perhaps award-winning good.

"You're talking about great Grambling football right now. We're all eating it," Grambling tight ends coach Robert Bailey said Monday. "Everybody has their coffee or their Coke to the side to help swallow it down, and I love how it tastes. Outstanding spice to it. I love it. You can't look at it no other way. That's how it's supposed to be. We're known for winning."
