It would definitely help the brand in the local area.

FSU had to stop selling FSUHALL's jersey because every time a shipment arrived people got crushed and trampled when they opened the doors.

Not at Texas Southern. 

All our bookstore sells is a standard "27" jersey (the year the school was founded) and as I'm on the university bookstore website right now I don't see them.

You mean you can't find a Michael Strahan jersey at TSU?

This would be good for us to consider. Although I must say that I'm a little disappointed at the way we represent our alma maters in terms of how little we wear our hbcu gear, at least on the local level. And that applies to both younger and older alums. But we'll all rock our fraternity and sorority gear to the hilt.
