Is this part of an overall stadium upgrade or just replacing the field?

Jackson State head coach Deion Sanders will be featured on 60 Minutes on Sunday.

Journalist Jon Wertheim and the CBS 60 Minutes crew recently spent time with the NFL Hall of Famer at Jackson State University to examine how Sanders was able to transform the football program all while uplifting HBCU football and the city where the team calls home.

Sitting on his porch staring at the ocean off a balcony at a condo in Jamaica, Rod Broadway laughs about his favorite Shawn Gibbs memory.

A legendary coach at multiple Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Broadway helped mold Gibbs’ coaching career when Broadway tabbed Gibbs for various roles on his staffs at Grambling and North Carolina A&T.

But the startling move that Broadway made – to go from a veteran, nine-win Grambling program to rebuild A&T on the heels of the nadir of that school’s football history – was ripe with obstacles, even as it meant a return to the home states of both Broadway and Gibbs.

To hear Nick Saban tell it, historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are thriving in the NIL era by shelling out million-dollar paydays to the country’s top athletes and closing the talent gap between Power 5s and mid-majors in one fell swoop.

“I don’t even make a million!” Jackson State football coach Deion Sanders tweeted in response to Saban’s unsubstantiated claim that Sanders paid Travis Hunter, the No. 1 prospect in the SI99 recruiting rankings, the inordinate amount.

Paul Quinn College's new basketball court has beauty and an important history lesson


When it comes to top basketball court designs, Paul Quinn College might be going for the crown.

Michael Sorrell, the school's president, certainly thinks so.

"Our court is absolutely the best basketball court in America. We invite anyone who feels differently to play us in a home-and-home series for bragging rights," Sorrell said.

While some traditional universities are experiencing declines in students, many historical Black colleges and universities are having an enrollment boom.

“Our enrollment continues to rise and increase year over year,” Bowie State University President Aminta Breaux said.

When Kenny Blakeney joined Jim Engles’ staff in 2018, he was trying to satisfy “an itch.”

Blakeney had not coached a basketball game in six years. After building up Harvard University’s program from a low-level Division I team to a consistent Ivy League title contender with head coach Tommy Amaker from 2008 to 2012, the Washington, D.C., native left Cambridge to enter the private sector, joining Under Armour’s marketing division.
