Y'all can rationalize that foolishness all you like but I'm not Playing any P5 for $300k I don't give a damn how short the trip is.
I promise you if SU were to ever play lsu it'll be nothing less than $500k payout.
In the long game SCSU can get over this and be fine.
These games rarely make HBCUs look good. The payout seems way off to me regardless of how close SCSU is. I think FAMU and BCU have gotten nearly double for playing in state P5 schools. Don't in state midmajor like Central Florida, Southern Miss and those in Louisiana pay nearby HBCUs around $300,000?
Clemson over the past few years has been among the strongest FBS p5 programs. Don't they and the university of SC average over 80,000 per game. I don't care if the HBCU was 8 blocks away, $300,000 is not right.
