Austin Asks Congress to Support Defense Budget Request
March 23, 2023 | By Jim Garamone , DOD News

The fiscal 2024 defense budget request of $842 billion is needed to deter and counter the threats of today and the threats that may arise in the future, Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III told the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee today.

A task force wanted to help a financially ailing HBCU in North Carolina. It was disbanded.


“Despite our efforts and financial commitment, Barber-Scotia College officials refuse to work in partnership with us, and have continuously obstructed the work of the Task Force,” Lindsay Manson, a spokesperson for the City of Concord, said in a news release Thursday. “We no longer believe it is possible for the Task Force to work effectively in pursuit of a revitalized campus.”

Men's college basketball coaching changes for 2023-24

Jeff Borzello

While nothing may top Adrian Autry replacing Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim at Syracuse after 47 years at the helm, the men's college basketball coaching carousel continues to spin fast and furiously. Positions have been opening since before the 2022-23 season tipped -- when Manhattan fired Steve Masiello -- and will continue to do so in the coming months.

There are already vacancies at large programs such as Ole Miss, Notre Dame, Texas and Texas Tech, most of which will set off chain reactions when they're filled. Current successful mid-major coaches are in the running for those. As we approach the 2023-24 season, ESPN will be tracking all the moves in the men's game in one complete list right here.

Hofstra Pride  16-2
Charleston Cougars 16-2
Towson Tigers    12-6
UNC Wilmington Seahawks 12-6
Drexel Dragons 10-8
Delaware Blue Hens 8-10
North Carolina A&T Aggies  8-10
William & Mary Tribe   7-11
Elon Phoenix  6-12
Stony Brook Seawolves  6-12
Northeastern Huskies 6-12
Hampton Pirates 5-13
Monmouth Hawks 5-13

'Sister Presidents:' Raleigh's 2 HBCU presidents on ties that bind the schools and their friendship

Both HBCUs are looking for ways to boost revenue and renovate aging facilities on campus. They're pitching plans to reimagine the universities with private partnerships.

The proposed "Shaw U District" aims to rezone many university properties and then lease them to private developers. At Saint Augustine's, McPhail is finalizing plans to lease 12 acres of campus for a 320-unit multi-family project. The plans have fueled some criticism that the schools may be selling off their legacies.

Amos 5

20 Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

21 I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.

22 Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.

23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.

24 But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.

25 Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?

26 But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.

27 Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Lord, whose name is The God of hosts.
