EL-Jay you mentioned who would replace Slater. Well he'll be replaced like he replace Coach Comegy when he left for Jackson State or like you was replace when you left EWC years ago. The cycle always has a replacement that's just Life and Business.
You right G-Ram but to be honest I wasn't looking to go to the playoffs this year in the first place. Because you guys was ranked all season and we wasn't. So I guess when we knocked off you guys and some teams in front of y'all lost bumped us up to the #7 seed to get in. But you right we have to think beyond the Conference Championship and think about winning it all on the National Level. But how can you prepare your team for those schools like Lenoir-Rhyne who we never played nor heard of before? Even the Great Valdosta State was knocked out of the Playoffs and they was the #1 Seed.And the more you advance in the playoffs the harder it is to win the whole thing especially when you are playing teams that are 12,13,and 14-0 and you are a 9-2 team like we was. And as for Tuskegee well let's just say that some of your Birmingham Tuskegee Alums
I know and are my Church Members is really fed up with Slater and TU Administration.
I been said that the Commissioners of the CIAA,MEAC,SIAC,and SWAC should meet up and formed an HBCU Football Playoff and Championship Game. We got to show the World that we can Brand ourself across the Board. There is no reason why the SIAC and the CIAA should be left out of this situation. It should be a Final Four SWAC vs. MEAC and CIAA vs. SIAC winners from both format meet in a HBCU National Championship Game. If our D2 HBCU Football Athletes is not good enough to be in the same Conversation with the D1 HBCU Football Athletes then we should just discontinue HBCU D2 Football then. Because the D2 HBCU Football Athletes are just as good as the D1 HBCU Football Athletes and sometimes better.

Lane College President Logan Hampton announced that Dragons Head Football Coach Derrick Burroughs will step into a full-time role as Athletic Director for the College, vacating the seat of head football coach. A search for a new head football coach will begin immediately.
After seven years as head football coach for the Dragons, Burroughs said he wants to shift his focus more towards improving all 12 Division II athletic programs here at Lane.
Lane celebrates Coach Burroughs for his servant leadership he has provided in leading the football team on- and off-the-field and for his passion for developing student-athletes to achieve their fullest potential.
"I want to thank Coach Burroughs for his dedication to Lane's football," Dr. Hampton, said. "I know that many of our current players, their parents and alumni have close associations with Coach Burroughs. I am glad that he will continue to forge ahead with our athletic department."
During his second tenure at Lane, beginning in 2015, Burroughs re-established the "Lane College Athletics Hall of Fame" program and was the brainchild behind "Dinner with the Pros." During his tenure, close to $535,000 was raised in the athletic program.
Burroughs first began coaching at Lane in 2012, leading the Dragons to an 11-9 overall record over two seasons including a 6-4 season in 2013.
After a brief stint with a Division I program, Burroughs returned to Lane in January 2015. His goal was to improve the perception and performance of Lane's athletic program. As Burroughs led the football team in gradual positive progress, He picked up signature wins over SIAC opponents Benedict College and Kentucky State University in 2015, non-conference rivals Texas College and Langston University in 2016, a season the Dragons finished 5-5 overall.
He followed up that year with a season opening win on the road over Texas College in 2017, capping off the season with a come-from-behind victory over SIAC West Division rival Central State University at home.
In 2018, after picking up a homecoming win over Allen University, Burroughs and the Dragons shocked the conference, knocking off powerhouse Miles College 15-14 thanks to a 34-yard field goal as time expired at home in Jackson.
This past season, he led the Dragons to back-to-back home conference wins to finish the season at the new and improved Lane Field.
During his tenure as head football coach, Burroughs saw multiple players from his former Dragons' squads go on to play at the next level, while also producing many players that received First Team All-Conference as well as First Team All-Academic SIAC honors.
Lane's Head Football Coach Derrick Burroughs steps down to just being Athletic Director only he said that he wants to focus on upgrading the Athletic Dept at Lane through Fundraising and upgrading Facilities at Lane.

I see why Lenoir-Rhyne is 13-0 they are good and attack fast from the line of Scrimmage. I was like wow when I was at the game two weeks ago. They are a well coached and discipline team.

I remember when Albany State would have a live white Billy Goat on the Sideline. They go as close to a Ram they could with that white short Billy with them big horns. The Birmingham Zoo wanted to bring a Caged Brown Bear to one of our football games about six years ago. Also North Alabama always have UNA(Lioness) and Leo the Lion in their Air Conditioned Trailers with a Display Window to let you see them. Southern has Lacumba and Lacumba has it's own Habitat and the Baton Rouge Zoo. Then there is the Live animal Mascots at Tennessee,Georgia,Auburn,Buffalo.
