How Howard University Finally Made It Back to March Madness

During his first season as head basketball coach at Howard University, in 2019-2020, Kenny Blakeney tried to tune out all the noise. That task, however, proved near impossible. His team slogged through a 4-29 season. Not that 20-loss seasons were at all irregular at Howard: the men had lost 20 or more games 19 times in the previous 24 campaigns.

Still, Blakeney—a Duke graduate who won a national championship as a freshman in 1992—was hired to bring a winning pedigree to Howard.

Sports Forum / Survey shows ASU has best HBCU athletic facilities
« on: January 24, 2023, 09:54:07 AM »
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A recent survey released shows that Alabama State has the best athletic facilities among all HBCUs. SISTABruhtha conducted the survey and the results came back favoring the Hornets.

Alabama State opened New ASU Stadium back in 2012 and according to the survey, it's what propelled the Hornets to the top. When paired with the Acadome and Track Complex, Alabama State pulls together a trio of facilities that are tough to beat.

Why is his message so unclear? That dude said he's done more for them and he hasn't even been hired. Anyone believing that is more proof of the rampant stupidity among some of us 😂🤣😂🤣😂 these HBCUs need to cut the celebrity worship that's persistent in black American culture and go with some folks that are actually capable and trustworthy.

Ed Reed says it's only been a "week and a half" since he agreed to accept the job as head football coach at Bethune-Cookman," according the Hall of Famer's Tik Tok video.  Reed is displaying a great amount of frustration — which is not a good sign.

Kevin Durant Donates $500K to Renovate HBCU Bowie State's Basketball Gym

Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant and the Durant Family Foundation pledged $500,000 toward Bowie State athletics.

The former NBA player is providing Howard University students with unprecedented opportunities within fashion through the social impact brand.
Since retiring, former NBA player Allan Houston has been paving roads for people to have opportunities to achieve their dream. In doing so, Houston founded FISLL, a brand whose initials stand for faith, integrity, sacrifice, leadership, and legacy, with a mission to help people find their purpose.


Dover, Del. (Oct. 17, 2022) --- Delaware State University Athletics has been informed by the family of  Bryan Bossard that the Hornet assistant football coach passed away in Philadelphia this morning at the age of 55.
A former Dover (Del.) High School and University of Delaware football star, Bossard joined the Hornets' staff as running backs/ tight ends coach prior to the abbreviated 2020 season, which was played in the spring of 2021. He was promoted to offensive coordinator midway through the fall 2021 season. Bossard coached the first two games of the 2022 campaign before stepping down due to his illness.

Is this part of an overall stadium upgrade or just replacing the field?

That's interesting that Walmart replaced the practice fields.

Sports Forum / Jackson State football to be featured on 60 Minutes

Jackson State head coach Deion Sanders will be featured on 60 Minutes on Sunday.

Journalist Jon Wertheim and the CBS 60 Minutes crew recently spent time with the NFL Hall of Famer at Jackson State University to examine how Sanders was able to transform the football program all while uplifting HBCU football and the city where the team calls home.

Sitting on his porch staring at the ocean off a balcony at a condo in Jamaica, Rod Broadway laughs about his favorite Shawn Gibbs memory.

A legendary coach at multiple Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Broadway helped mold Gibbs’ coaching career when Broadway tabbed Gibbs for various roles on his staffs at Grambling and North Carolina A&T.

But the startling move that Broadway made – to go from a veteran, nine-win Grambling program to rebuild A&T on the heels of the nadir of that school’s football history – was ripe with obstacles, even as it meant a return to the home states of both Broadway and Gibbs.

To hear Nick Saban tell it, historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are thriving in the NIL era by shelling out million-dollar paydays to the country’s top athletes and closing the talent gap between Power 5s and mid-majors in one fell swoop.

“I don’t even make a million!” Jackson State football coach Deion Sanders tweeted in response to Saban’s unsubstantiated claim that Sanders paid Travis Hunter, the No. 1 prospect in the SI99 recruiting rankings, the inordinate amount.

Congratulations to Damon!! He will not be there long he will be at a power 5 school in a few years after he turns Morgan around in two or three years tops.
