I'm glad to see these athletes get paid but if some serious controls aren't put in place this whole thing is gonna turn sideways.
Large sums of money flowing to young athletes in sports where heavy betting takes place might be a baaaaad idea. Some of these NIL deals are eventually gonna come with strings attached.
Coach Ruffin was here last weekend for the "Sound Mind Sound Body" football and cheerleading recruitment event.
Those who know me know that we conversed (I don't conversate) about our athletic teams and facilities. D1 still not in the foreseeable future despite what you may have read/heard. Those who read the strategic plan know this...
Hi Utopia! Hi Ramses!
HI GK and yes, I am 100% sure there was a discussion.
The thing that baffles me, is the notion that moving to D1 is somehow every schools desire. It simply is not and it has nothing to do with shortsighted vision, it has more to do with sustainability. I would prefer we perfect our craft where we are and become more successful across the board in all aspects of our Athletics in D2, because once you move all your programs move. There is a reason Albany State has declined offers about moving to D1, its called COMMON SENSE.
If TU could go SWAC East with SC State or Albany it would make for a very interesting situation. The furthest travel within the SWAC East would be 5.5hrs (Orangeburg, SC). But we all know that until we see a few facility upgrades this is looking like wishful thinking.
SC State / Albany
Yeah, I will believe this when they get some lights down in that hole and play some night games. It's rough playing at noon with that Macon County heat set on Hell!
One other factor to consider is that thanks to Trump’s debt forgiveness, TU is basically debt free. No more excuses for deferred maintenance on facilities, or that things can’t be done because of the debt!!!Explain how the student loan debt forgiveness program help TU get out of debt.
Being debt free is a huge game changer for TU.
TU is the one remaining D2 program that has the brand name and worldwide name recognition to make FCS work, if planned out properly!!
This^^^^^^For the life of me, I can't understand why TU seem to be so content with D2. Can you imagine how that classic can be promoted and blown up if they were D1 and a SWAC affiliationThey tell you the reason why all the time. Tuskegee can't AFFORD to move up like the rest of the D2 HBCU's!
The fact that the same person is the AD, HC, and the OC says it all.
