The Justice Department's inspector general reportedly found no evidence to support President Donald Trump's claim that the FBI spied on his 2016 presidential campaign while investigating whether the campaign was conspiring with the Russian government to interfere in the election, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

Sports Forum / Shaw looked really weak Saturday

RALEIGH, N.C. – The Shaw University men's basketball team stayed within reach of the No. 4 West Liberty University team early on in the first 10 minutes but the Bears could not contain a hot-shooting Hilltoppers squad in a 132-85 setback inside the historic C.C. Spaulding Gymnasium during the 2019 Shaw Men's Basketball Classic on Sunday afternoon.


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida A&M University is planning to cut two men’s athletic programs and cut staff and operating expenses by $800,000.

It's all apart of FAMU's plan to reduce a projected $2.4 million budget deficit in its athletics department.

FAMU Athletic Director John Eason will make the call on what sports to cut. Those cuts will then take effect for the 2020-2021 season.

There's no timetable on when a decision will be made for what sports to cut, but it will more than likely come before Thanksgiving.

The sports that are most likely to be cut are men's indoor/outdoor track and field, tennis, and/or golf.

President Donald Trump claimed earlier this month that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told him that his phone call with the Ukrainian president was “the most innocent phone call that I’ve ever read.”

But McConnell said Tuesday he’s never discussed the phone call with the president.

“We’ve not had any conversations on that subject,” McConnell told reporters

Democrats are using the call to bolster their impeachment inquiry into Trump, claiming the president abused his power when he pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate political rival Joe Biden.

McConnell was asked Tuesday whether the president was lying when he made that statement. The GOP leader replied: “You’ll have to ask him. I don’t recall any conversations with the president about that phone call.”

John Eason's short tenure as Florida A&M athletics director could be coming to a close.

Eason told the Democrat that he recently submitted his letter of resignation to FAMU President Larry Robinson. However, Eason said Robinson at that time did not accept his offer to resign.

Eason said he was scheduled to meet with Robinson on Monday.

"I was concerned about the budget and what was going on," Eason said Sunday following FAMU's 34-31 overtime win against North Carolina A&T. "The president and I agreed to talk. I don't like to let things sit. There are a lot of things people don't see that go into this job."

Rams now 0-2  .... Road games to Tuskegee and Union coming. A possible 0-4 is in site  :o

Nothing has gone right for Winston-Salem State so far this season.

More evidence of that came Saturday night in its home opener against Catawba. For the second game in a row the Rams failed to score in the second half and this time they lost 21-14 in front of nearly 5,000 at Bowman Gray Stadium.

Sports Forum / SWAC office misused funds

Well this explains why Duer Sharp left so quickly

Duer Sharp’s resignation as SWAC Commissioner last week, just two days before the conference championship game, seemed to have come out of nowhere. But as HBCU Gameday first reported last week, it appears more complicated than that.

HBCU Gameday has obtained exclusive access to a memo sent from the NCAA to each President in the SWAC that outlines a misuse of money by the conference office. The funds in question are from the Student-Athlete Opportunity Fund (SAOF) and were mismanaged over the course of several years.  Funds from the SAOF are distributed directly to conference offices from the NCAA and then distributed to the eligible student-athletes at each conference institution.

Sports Forum / A&T wins Homecoming , beats DSU 44-3 , Now 6-0

GREENSBORO – And the band played on.

N.C. A&T danced past Delaware State 44-3 Saturday, a homecoming victory that came before a crowd so large it’s not clear that everyone got in.

Those that did were packed onto the track surrounding the field. Those that didn’t just watched through the fence along Sullivan Street.

The game was just part of the festivities Saturday. Some got up early to watch the parade. Some waited around to watch the band afterward. But more than 25,000 people packed into and around Aggie Stadium to watch what just might be the best A&T football team in school history.

Now 6-0 for the first time since 1993, the Aggies put away Del State in a two-minute blitz in the first quarter, a remarkable sequence that showed just how good this team is and how good it can yet be.

It happened so fast, the visiting Hornets didn’t know what hit them.

“We’re chasing excellence,” he said. “We’re chasing greatness. It not about just winning. It’s not about just beating people. It’s about chasing excellence and being as good as we can be.”
