Sports Forum / LSU, Ed Orgeron Out
« on: Today at 01:36:59 PM »
LSU, Ed Orgeron reach separation agreement with coach expected to finish 2021 season, per report

LSU and coach Ed Orgeron, 60, have reached a separation agreement that will result in Orgeron not returning to coach the Tigers following the 2021 season, according to Sports Illustrated's Ross Dellenger. Orgeron, who won a national championship at LSU in 2019, is expected to finish the remainder of the season as the team's coach. 
While this development comes less than 24 hours after the Tigers upset Florida 49-42 at Tiger Stadium, Dellenger reports that the move had been in the works since last week's loss to Kentucky. Orgeron is expected to receive his entire $17 million buyout, according to The Athletic's Bruce Feldman.

Kobe Dillon sets SWAC all-time record in Southern blowout win vs UAPB

PINE BLUFF, Ak. ( – 267 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns. Not bad for a quarterback right?
Former Ferriday QB Kobe Dillon set the all-time SWAC record for rushing yards in a single game. Dillon switched from signal caller to ball carrier in the offseason. After just his sixth game at his new position, the freshman walked away from Simmons Bank Field with a performance for the history books.
However, Dillon deferred attention away from himself and wanted to thank one group of men instead: the offensive line.

Southern travels to UAPB with a sense of urgency

There’s no need to remind Southern University coach Jason Rollins that his team needs to play with a sense of urgency Saturday after coming off its first Southwestern Athletic Conference loss last week. 
A sense of urgency is standard operating procedure around the program.

NCAA task force recommends removing minimum standardized test scores in effort to advance racial equity

An NCAA task force recommended on Friday that incoming freshmen in Division I and II sports should no longer be required to meet minimum scores on standardized tests for initial eligibility.
The recommendation was made by the NCAA Standardized Test Score Task Force, which was formed as part of the NCAA's eight-point plan to advance racial equity. The Division I Committee on Academics and Division II Academic Requirements Committee will consider the recommendation at their next scheduled meetings in February. Changes to initial-eligibility requirements would also have to be reviewed and made through each division's legislative process

Sports Forum / SWAC defenses among the best in FCS football
« on: October 14, 2021, 10:30:16 PM »
This has been another smear campaign that has developed in the world of alternative facts. The SWAC has always had some of the best defenses in all of college football.

They told us it was a “new SWAC.” But nobody told us it would be a defensive one.
Prairie View A&M ranks second in the FCS with an average of 233 yards allowed per game. Prairie View and Jackson State have two of the stingiest defenses in FCS football, both of them ranked in the top 10 of the country. FAMU’s 11.8 points per game allowed rank fifth in the nation, while Jackson State’s 13.2 rank seventh. FAMU’s defense has allowed eight touchdowns while Jackson State has allowed just six through its first five games.

Sports Forum / Jameis Winston partner with legacy bowl
« on: October 14, 2021, 03:23:54 PM »
New Orleans, LA (October 14, 2021) The HBCU Legacy Bowl announced a new, multi-year partnership with New Orleans Saints QB Jameis Winston and his Dream Forever Foundation.
Jameis played college football at Florida State, where he became the youngest player to win the Heisman Trophy and led his team to victory in the 2014 BCS National Championship Game during his freshman year. Winston was selected first overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2015 NFL Draft. He set several franchise rookie records, earned Pro Bowl honors and led the league in passing yards during the 2019 season. Winston joined the New Orleans Saints in 2020, became the starting QB in 2021 and was named team captain


BATON ROUGE, La. – Southern’s defense has been getting torched. The “Defenders” of Gold and Blue finished their second consecutive shootout, where the Jaguars’ offense had to keep the game within reach.
The difference between Saturday against Texas Southern and two weeks prior against Mississippi Valley State was Southern lost.
The Jags gave up 576 total yards against the Tigers, but the SWAC West opener wasn’t the first game the defense struggled. After Saturday’s loss, Southern’s unit fell to eighth in three rankings: total yards, passing yards and touchdowns.


Southern University and A&M College continues to enjoy significant enrollment growth that now spans over the past five years. For the fall 2021 semester, a preliminary total of 7,404 students are currently enrolled at the flagship campus of the Southern University System. This is an overall increase of seven percent from the fall semester of 2020 and a particularly noteworthy 17 percent increase in the number of first-time freshmen currently attending the institution. These numbers include both undergraduate and graduate students.

Sports Forum / Ed Orgeron's days are likely numbered at LSU

Everyone knows Ed Orgeron's days are likely numbered at LSU ... including Orgeron

As the losses mount, and as the number of ways out of this morass dwindles, all sorts of questions are flying about LSU coach Ed Orgeron.
Questions about his coaching acumen, his ability to hire and properly vet assistant coaches, and certainly his temperament. The “sissy blue shirt” exchange with a UCLA fan as Orgeron walked into the Rose Bowl on Sept. 4 has been trumped by his kneejerk reaction to an immature troll on his radio show last Wednesday night.

Jon Gruden is out as the Las Vegas Raiders' head coach, a source confirmed to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Monday.
Raiders owner Mark Davis arrived at the team's facility a couple of hours ago and went to find Gruden, a source told Schefter. The two men met, and Gruden no longer will be the Raiders' head coach, the source said.
The news comes in in the wake a New York Times report that Gruden used misogynistic and anti-gay language in numerous emails during a seven-year period.
NFL Network was first to report Gruden's departure from the team.

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Two former members of Southern University and A&M College’s ‘Fabulous Dancing Dolls’ are taking their dance moves to new heights after being selected to join the New Orleans Saints Cheer Team.
That brings the total number of Southern alumni on the Saints’ cheer squad to three.
Danielle Stamper and Chanucey McCoy have been selected to perform with the cheer team, according to Sports Illustrated.
Stamper and McCoy will join the ranks of five season veteran with the Saints Cheer Team, Taylor Davis, who is also alumna of the HBCU.
