1  Discussion / Sports Forum / Re: Frank Haith merely the latest African-American coach to leave SEC for lesser job on: Today at 04:22:44 PM
Frank left because he knew he would likely be met go after next season.   Martin left Tennessee because the fans generated a petition with 30,000 names on it to get rid of him and bring back Bruce Pearl. Both situations are quite different but quite smart on the behalf of the brothas involved.

The way sponsors value an event is by how many tickets are sold and how many butts are in the arena. Therefore, the CIAA is getting what they are worth. (Based on that valuation formula)

That helmet is hot.  IF they had better uniforms than those experiment failures that Russel provides all the HBCUS they could really look good when they hit the fields this fall..

HBCU players better mind their business.  Theres nothing to see here.  They wont be receiving a stipend so they dont need representation.  Move on.  NEXT STORY.. There aint an HBCU on the planet that can afford the stipend or to pay the players in ANY way  !!!

For what they bring into the university... Spending is right where it needs to be. You invest in your most valuable assets and that's what these programs do. Period. Academia doesn't have to like it but that's reality and it's NOT going to change

Because that's the model that all the conferences use. Even the ACC. YOURE ALOTTED a block of tickets....if you don't sell them then u bought them. It puts the impetus on the schools to market their program and the game day and tournament experience.

T hall. The conference isn't entitled to make money off the parties and other ancillary events surrounding the tournament. I'm not sure why people think they are?  Private business throw these parties witht their money and they assume all the risk. The ACC doesn't get money off parties and game watch events in Greensboro during their tourney... Where did that line of entitled thinking come from?  Just curious.

I am a member with a recurring draft being pulled with no "end" date ". My question for HBCU is why would you punish the student-athletes because the AD is an idiot..? You should remember that the way you change things is by giving. When u give you have a voice. When you don't give, nobody is motivated to answer your calls or return your emails. Just something to think about. Trust me. Everybody associated with FSU knows that the AD isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer but please don't let him keep you from supporting the kids that go out and do the best they can with the resources they are given.

I'd be comfortable saying you have nothing to worry about.. Guess we will know soon enough !!! Tick TOCK !! My bet is that Connell will be in red again next year

Dial 336.334.7600 tomorrow and ask them what the alumni giving percentage is.. I'll let you get the info for yourself. I already know. I've presented the info and the number at T was only 12%. Pretty sure it's less now. U find out for yourself. I'm comfortable with my info.
15  Discussion / Sports Forum / Re: Saban's Salary Vs. D1 HBCU Budgets on: December 16, 2013, 08:58:07 PM
Y.. Don't compare A & T with UNCG. The difference with all HBCUs vs PWCs is that the Negros that graduated from the said HBCUS don't give.. Graduates from UNCG DO.. Look no further than their annual fund numbers... That's where the disparity is.. There is no racism involved in this as some other ridiculous post suggested.. As I've said on here for years, if black folks cared less about their homecoming outfits and spent that money wig their athletic departments, we could see change... PERIOD. Until we adjust our priorities then this conversation will continue to happen and nothing will change.
