Former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz lone inductee into Baseball Hall of Fame as Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens miss again

"Big Papi" was the only player to clear the 75% threshold for induction, according to results of this year's voting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Ortiz was named on 307 ballots (77.9%) in his first year of eligibility.

"I am truly honored and blessed by my selection to the Hall of Fame -- the highest honor that any baseball player can reach in their lifetime," Ortiz said in a statement released by the Boston Red Sox. "I am grateful to the baseball writers who considered my career in its totality, not just on the statistics."

Bonds, baseball's all-time home run leader (66%), 354-game winner Roger Clemens (65.2%), 600-homer-club member Sammy Sosa (18.5%) and longtime ace pitcher Curt Schilling (58.6 percent) were in their 10th and final year of eligibility in the annual BBWAA balloting

It's interesting that no college presidents talk about time away from the classroom except Dr Harvey. It's interesting.

Received a call last night from loyal school fan who irritated by the school restricting fans attendance to the games.  He stated that the school had not mentioned any refunding for the regular season season ticket holders.  Some schools allowed him entrance and some don’t.  The local ACC schools have fans and some don’t wear any kind of mask.  He mentioned that North Carolina A & T are allowing some fans in attendance.  Why do I CIAA schools are so arse backwards in this.

I don't think it is all CIAA schools.  I think WSSU and ECSU have some fans at their games.

’s and my Twitter Chat TOMORROW.

We’ll talk about the Black College Football Hall of Fame’s mission, the
, the #HBCUCombine and more.

Local talent is the key to football relevance
Golden Bulls' strategy is recruit Charlotte first, most

Published Sunday, January 23, 2022
by Herbert L. White

Maurice Flowers is taking the local approach to remaking Johnson C. Smith football.

Flowers, who was officially announced as Golden Bulls coach last week, believes the Charlotte region’s depth of high school talent is the key ingredient to making the Golden Bulls relevant after four decades of consistent losing. It’s his job to convince area recruits JCSU, which went 16-42 over six years with Kermit Blount as coach, is worth the commitment.

When Fayetteville State becomes an NC Promise School ($500/semester tuition), will that increase the number of in-state scholarships that they can give?

Fayetteville State University to reduce tuition costs to only $500 a semester

November 20, 2021

The funding will be applied to lower tuition to $500 per semester for in-state students. Similar programs have offset costs for students at three other colleges through the NC Promise Program — Elizabeth City State University, the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and Western Carolina University.

I didn't realize how good Bluefield State was.

Did Memphis have the best recruiting class last year?
