Looks like they hired former NFL standout Sean Gilbert. 3rd overall pick from Pitt in 1992, played for the Panthers 1998-02.
Three or four of the five home games could be sellouts. That's how you make a schedule.
I'm seeing two guaranteed sellouts - Howard (homecoming) and A&T. With two strong sellout possibilities - Winston (home opener/old CIAA foe/AD is NCCU alum) and FAMU (Celebration Bowl hopeful)

The Director of Football Operations is the interim? That’s unique.
Yeah you definitely don't see that often, but he was the most experienced on the staff behind Prince.

@BlueDog. Newton is a true junior and has not redshirted before so he is eligible to take a redshirt year. Reading the comments on the Twitter post, there seems to be an issue with him/his camp and the new coaching staff. I find it hard to fathom that he returns to HU after leaving like this. Since it was announced on Friday, I wonder did he take starter reps all week of was this kept in-house until he officially made up his mind. this definitely puts HU at a disadvantage this week if he took starter reps and decided on Friday that he was leavingI'm going to have to look up this new red shirt rule. I've always understood that you can red shirt your freshman year if you don't play a particular number of games. Anything after that would have to be a medical Redshirt. Letting them be eligible to red shirt every year is pretty darn liberal. that's almost akin to being an unrestricted free agent annually
The only thing that's related to the new redshirt rule is he's played 4 games. Prior to last season you couldn't play a game and maintain the one non-medical redshirt the NCAA allows. Now guys can play up to 4 games and maintain their redshirt. Because of that rule you're seeing guys playing out their 4 games and then reevaluating their situation while not losing that year of eligibility. The rule was well-received by coaches and players.
There have never been any restrictions classification-wise, a true sophomore or true junior could always redshirt it's just less common than freshman redshirting.

None of this matters if the $ ain't there. Alums, supporters, corporations, and communities have to spend/donate with our programs.
Generation Z likes shiny things, nice facilities, gear etc. It doesn't have to be P5 level, just something nice enough to entice them and their families.
I think there's some selfishness in this notion of top black kids should go to HBCUs. You're asking an 18 year to have the foresight, knowledge and bravery to say "I'm going against the norm" or "I want to help bring HBCUs back to glory." These kids will to do what they want, they might not understand a PWI is a bad fit until they're 2 years into school or 15 years later when they go back to campus. That's why it's on us to emphasize the importance with our $. The folks on these HBCU message boards understand it so I might be preaching to the choir, but we gotta get our fair weather friends/non-financial supporting folks onboard
I've worked with a few former P5 football players over the years and I never hesitated to bring up NCCU and HBCUs. They didn't fully understand my affinity, but they would say they wished they could go back to their campus/homecoming and feel the same pride.

Basketball coaches are gonna see the jumping ability on some of these guys and recruit them for basketball when the volleyball season ends lol
He will be a MEAC assistant in ten months.
Lmaoooo. He could pay for the entire MEAC's salaries AND give them a 10% pay raise with the buyout he would get from FSU

I'll be keeping my eye on FMU.
Former Morgan and Alcorn Head FB coach Ernest Jones is the AD/Head FB Coach there. It's good to see another HBCU in Florida playing football
This is good stuff right here.
I agree, glad to talk more HBCU sports.
I know this is good for their football program. But will they be competitive in other sports too? That's often overlooked in conference and NCAA Division transitions.
