Does anyone go to high school anymore?
The Geier Consent Decree years: Fulfilled or unfulfilled promises?
I think this lawsuit in Tennessee may have led to Tennessee State joining the Ohio Valley Conference. It didn't force it but having a goal of 50% white students would cause you to leave the SWAC.

Don't scrap the championship game. I think it is time to move it back to Durham. The game was more successful in Durham.

Affected programs are men’s swimming and diving, women’s swimming and diving, men’s tennis and women’s tennis. The move affects 68 student-athletes and nine coaches. ECU previously led the American Athletic Conference with 20 sports (following the departure of Connecticut) and will now have 16 sports (9 women’s, 7 men’s). The NCAA requires Division I FBS schools to have a minimum of 16 sports including a minimum eight women’s and six men’s sports. ECU will remain at 16 sponsored sports.

There are a lot of good running backs pursuing other careers. Teams don't even draft many running backs in the early rounds.

He better bring his game. Playing time doesn't come without some effort.
THE JOHNNIE WALTON STORY
BY SETH SCHWARTZ
“Around The Five Leagues in 15 Years” could be the title of a book about Johnnie Walton’s rollercoaster journey in professional football.
In 1969, a starting black quarterback in the National Football League was less common than a man on the moon. While James Harris was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the eighth round in 1969, Walton was signed as a free agent with the Rams. Growing up in Elizabeth City, N.C., a small port town on the Atlantic Ocean, football and farming were staples for the Waltons. Family roots were planted firmly when his great grandfather, John Walton, settled on that land in the 1890s. A dirt patch in the midst of a cornfield and other spots on their 19 acres served as playing fields. Engaging in scrimmages were brothers William, Nathan, Lonnie Walton and a few others in the neighborhood. Torn clothes, tattered in blood were how games concluded.
Ernie Shavers was the man. He would put you out of boxing after he fought you. The best to be never win a championship.
I forgot about Lewis.
I was just listing boxers that were not on the list. This is a tough list to compile.
