DSU changing athletics director, football coach
By Adam Duvernay, The News Journal
Published 3:32 p.m. ET Nov. 19, 2017

Delaware State University on Sunday announced it has promoted a senior associate athletics director to interim athletics director and won't extend the contact of its head football coach.

Mary Hill, senior associate athletics director for internal operations and senior woman administrator, is in her fifth year at DSU and already is supervising seven major sports, according to a university news release. She'll now serve as interim director of athletics.

“Mary enjoys the trust of all our coaches and athletes,” Vice President for Student Affairs Stacy Downing said in the release. "We expect the transition to be a seamless one.”

Head football coach Kenneth Carter's contact ends Jan. 31, and the university won't extend his contact. The process to recruit a new coach begins in December. Director of player development and defensive line coach E.J. Junior will serve as interim head coach.

It usually works out that way when you are paying off assistant coaches at Power 5 basketball programs then bribing players, parents, and AAU coaches to sign with those same schools that you already have under contract. 

Must be that marketing strategy.

Kent State is a 35 point favorite against Howard.

That is a ridiculous spread. Should be more like 6. They had us at a 20-point underdog last year and we saw how that turned out.

Actually the halftime rule didn't change but the officials have been told by the NCAA to strictly enforce the 20 minute rule and well as 30 second time outs so that the media folk will no longer control the timeouts on televised games. See the article below.

NCAA officials ordered to constrain TV timeouts, halftime
Manie Robinson, Sports Columnist Published 5:11 p.m. ET July 14, 2017 | Updated 5:13 p.m.

Clemson University football fans must shorten their halftime tailgate a bit this fall. That commercial-restroom break must be expedited.

The NCAA has directed officials to adhere to timing guidelines more attentively. The halftime intermission must run closer to the allotted 20 minutes. Those pesky, seemingly incessant television timeouts will not run longer than scheduled.

A good civil and considerate conversation between a couple of intelligent black men with slightly varying but essentially the same view points.

Raynard is the starter without a doubt. That was settled way back in spring practice but Carter is a close second and will get to play some as well.

National Titles In Belcher's Sights After Day 1

Courtesy: NC A&T Sports Information
Release: 06/08/2017

EUGENE, Ore. (June 7, 2017) –
It was a successful first day of the 2017 NCAA Division Track and Field Championships for the North Carolina A&T men's track and field team at Historic Hayward Field on the campus of the University of Oregon. Leading the way for the Aggies was senior sprinter Christopher Belcher. Belcher, who qualified for the 100 and 200 meters and the 4x100 meter relay at the NCAA nationals, has a chance to win a national championship in all three on Friday.

Belcher qualified for the finals first in the 4x100 meter relay. Along with senior Caleb Gabriel, sophomore Rodney Rowe and freshman Jaylen Mitchell, the foursome ran a 38.48 for the second-fastest time in the nation this year. Auburn just beat the Aggies by running a 38.47 as Rowe lost by a slight lean at the end. The Aggies not only broke the school record but their own Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference record after breaking it two weeks earlier at the NCAA East Preliminary Round.

They also ran the ninth-fastest time in NCAA history. By making the final, all four men earned first-team All-American honors. They will go for the national title in the 4x1 on Friday at 8:32 p.m., eastern standard time. The Aggies will face Oregon, Texas A&M, Auburn, Houston, LSU, Arkansas and Texas in the final.

Release: 06/07/2017

EUGENE, Ore. -
North Carolina A&T State's Christopher Belcher stole the headlines with a pair of record-breaking runs to highlight the opening day of the 2017 NCAA Track & Field Championships at Hayward Field in Oregon.

Belcher cemented himself into MEAC history as he shattered his own MEAC record in the 100-meter dash semifinals and posted the fifth-fastest time in collegiate history after a time of 9.93. Nearly one hour later, Belcher returned to the track and qualified for the finals of the 200-meter dash on Friday as he posted the fastest time (20.01) of the evening. Earlier in the day, he helped the Aggies' 4x100-meter relay team qualify for the finals as the quartet ran the second-fastest semifinal time of the day (38.23).
