TSU's move does not look as strong as JSU's move. TSU seems more like a gimmick to copycat JSU, given that George does not have the same coaching passion. If TSU does not join the SWAC, I see this as a diversion away from HBCUs/SWAC to the OVC. The only problem is TSU is not content with conference championships, so the SWAC may need to find a solution to draw them back into the family.He might do well. Maybe he didn't believe he could do it until he spoke with Jeff. The interest appeared to have been there because he was talking about it. Great move on TSU part because hiring a head coach is all about business. The Bamas of the world hire a coach that will get the fan excited to increase donations. Getting money and great player solve lots of issues with coaching.
He may, and I hope so. I am not just thinking about football though. I am thinking about how more HBCUs than one gain a strengthened position. That is one thing some of the short-sighted fans in the SWAC don't seem to get about Deion. TSU's move with George does not do as much for all HBCUs as Deion's hire simply because TSU is not presently in the SWAC. Hoping our folks will see the bigger picture sooner or later.
