Definitely sucks losing an in-state rivalry game.

that fee is honestly not bad at all. but it should have been looked at a reduction during this pandemic year.  if the average student was asked to pay out of pocket for a game ticket the student sections of many stadiums/arenas would be empty.

While I am glad to see an HBCU making moves instead of getting moves made on it, I am somewhat remiss about the demise of Wesley College to a certain degree. This is because I can think of a handful of student athletes from my hometown (Annapolis) who have really benefited from attending and playing at Wesley. One even made the NFL for a split second and holds the NCAA all-Division record for kick return touchdowns in a career (10). Also one of my high school classmate's son had a solid career as a DB there. Unfortunately, and historically speaking, there have been a lot of really good football and bball star athletes at my high school alma mater who have fallen through the cracks and allowed to fizzle out due to many different reasons (not all, but a percentage that is waaaay above what it should be). But it seems like the kids that wound up going to Wesley turned out decent, no matter which way they went post-undergrad.

Delaware State's AD may look to keep several staff members from Wesley.  I wouldn't be too quick to think that DSU won't find success.

This is a hell of a schedule. I would pay for SWAC TV

Sounds like a home and home series woulda been more profitable.

This could could be huge for DSU. If they are able to move all olympic sports to Wesley and create an "athletic village" set-up this could quickly jump start a lot of programs.

News flash... Most, if not all very young coaches if successful at a small school, is going to leave for a better, bigger school/job. Money talks. Some of us on this forum confuse having a good coach with having a good program. Mack said that NCCU had a good program then, allowing him to leave... but they didn't. Coach Maynor, while at WSSU, said the same thing and we feel like rocks in a pond when he left. Very few, if any, HBCUs have good programs. That require money and prestige, both of which we don't have. We just try and hang on to good coaches and then call our programs good. We should expect to lose good coaches at some point.

HBCUs need to follow the VCU model.  They have had a coaching carousel.  They have prepared for the departure of head coaches.  They haven't skipped a beat.

VCU is well supported by the local community and has way less overhead without football. Very few HBCU's have the community, alumni and financial support that a school like VCU has.  NCAT, Southern, FAMU & J-State(both under new leadership) all seem to have all these boxes checked.

This has been sad. This is exactly why the NFL shouldn’t let team begin interviewing candidates until the Monday following the Big Game.

This is terrible experience for this young man who chose to ride out his commitment to UT through the staff change and defections of current student to the transfer portal. But as we all know new staffs come in and they and if you not ‘their recruit’ they often times will treat you lithos way.  I hope things work out for him long term.

If he were to leave. Do you think McNair would be a target to replace him?

This is solid and I hope that Coach Scott sees some success while at HU. But I also think it sucks that this information got leaked out somehow.

This is why P5 schools like Clemson are eliminating programs.


this will be good to watch

wouldn't be surprised if they turn to axing a few men's team to make the numbers work at the end of the year.

i have no issue with these games at all. the question that i have is will Towson make any true effort to have fans travel. HBCU students and alumni will travel well to regional out of conference games.  but with PWI's travel to HBCU's?
