We all know that there’s a significant gap between the Power 5 programs and HBCU’s but does anyone else get the sense that the gap is closing in the mid-major race for both D1 and D2 HBCU’s.

« on: January 06, 2019, 06:23:22 AM »
Looks like the Ron Prince era is on the clock as the Bison head to ‘Beantown’ to take on the Harvard Crimson next fall.  I’m definitely liking the move to play another FCS school. Hopefully this is a home-and-home game.  But I can live with it if not.  :clap:

For the first time in a while I believe we are at a place where our schools and conferences as whole are under solid leadership. We’ve seen clear messages and accountability coupled with various development projects to enhance branding across HBCU’s.

After the firestorm of that Papa John’s has had of late. Would you be opposed to your favorite HBCU establishing a partnership or excepting money from this franchise today.

Looks like Coach Oliver and staff are off to a solid start. This is some solid talent. Let’s Go Bison! :clap:

WASHINGTON, D.C.  –  Coming off his first season back at The Mecca, Howard University Director of Track & Field David Oliver introduced the 2018 women's class, featuring nine student-athletes from six states.

"We brought in a tremendous group of kids who were not only outstanding athletes, but are even better students in the classroom," Oliver stated. "At Howard, we pride ourselves in building just as many All-Conference academic kids as we produce All-Conference level athletes. I am very proud in our staff's first recruiting class and I expect production from them right out of the gates."

A year ago, the women's team saw two Bison reach the NCAA Preliminary East Round in Tampa, Fla.: Dominique Cleggett (New Orleans, La.) and Uchechi Onuoha (Yardly, Pa.).

Here is more information on the nine signees:

Toby Rens Steps Down As Maryland Eastern Shore Volleyball Coach

Published: January 10, 2018

PRINCESS ANNE, Maryland — University of Maryland Eastern Shore head volleyball coach Toby Rens resigned from his position on Monday, January 8, to accept the head coaching position at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

Assistant coach Trevor Callarman will serve as the interim head coach while a national search is underway.
“We value everything that Coach Rens has done for the program and our young ladies over the past four seasons during his return to campus,” Director of Athletics Keith Davidson said. “We wish him nothing but the best in his move to Georgetown.”

Rens just completed his seventh season with the Hawks, and the fourth of his second stint at the helm of the program. 2017 was his most successful year to date as the Hawks went 27-9, earning a berth in the National Invitational Volleyball Championship (NIVC).
“I truly appreciate my time here at Maryland Eastern Shore and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity and support that I was given,” Rens said. “I’d like to personally thank Mr. Davidson, Neema Connor, Stan Bradley, Collene Dean, Pat Nativio, Anne Carter and the entire staff.”
Over his Hawk career, he compiled a record of 127-102, winning two Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Northern Division Championships and two MEAC Coach of the Year awards.

With the news of FAMU’s commitment to resources three MEAC staffs now have doubled their full-time coaching positions. It will only build for better play and hopefully assist in other areas too.

Florida State adds Delaware State to 2017 football schedule

The Florida State Seminoles have added the Delaware State Hornets to their 2017 football schedule, FSU announced on Twitter on Tuesday.

Florida State will host Delaware State at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee on Nov. 18, 2017. Per a report by 247Sports, FSU will pay Delaware State a $475,000 guarantee for the game.

Delaware State is a member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in the Football Championship Subdivison (FCS). The Hornets finished the 2016 season 0-11 overall and 0-8 in MEAC play.

The addition of Delaware State tentatively completes Florida State’s non-conference schedule for the 2017 season.

FSU is slated to open the 2017 season on Sept. 2 against Alabama in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta. The Seminoles also host ULM on Sept. 9 and travel to face arch-rival Florida on Nov. 25.

In ACC play, Florida State is set to host Louisville, NC State, Syracuse, and Miami (FL) and travel to Boston College, Clemson, Wake Forest, and Duke.

Based on previous years, the 2017 ACC football schedule will probably be released in mid-to-late January.

Obviously, this is not an exhaustive list of all 125 FCS programs, but we concentrated our research on teams’ currently ranked in the FCS Top 25 polls and a few other top programs. All salaries are listed for the 2014-15 academic year, unless otherwise noted.

The average compensation package for the above listed FCS head coaches is $260,888.44. If you remove Gill’s numbers, the average drops to $240,503.96. Gill’s compensation would put him 87th amongst all Division I coaches, including the FBS, according to a recent USA Today study.
