South Carolina State budget lagging behind MEAC
« on: March 10, 2021, 04:16:53 PM »
South Carolina State’s athletics budget has been sliced by nearly 40 percent. It needs money for scholarships, personnel and Title IX.

The HBCU gameday article referred to SCSU's AD as a 'she'.  Stacy Danley is a guy who is a former TU AD.

The web link for the Times and Democrat article is below.

SC State needs to get a piece of the pie in the SWAC.

I mean is this breaking news. Seriously? We've harped on South Carolina State for over a decade now with their financial instability when in reality there are a few other schools in the MEAC that are in similar situations over that time period but continue to stay on Division I level.

that's all...   :shrug:

Its funny when I hear us talking about other schools being in financial trouble. Its like we think our school is doing fine, but these other schools are having problems. HBCUs are all suffering because of the effects of this COVID. Enrollments are down, room and board are down, donations are down, no money from sports revenue, and a whole bunch of broke alumni. SCSU is where we all are. All of us need to rethink the divisions we are in. Just saying...  :shrug:

It says lagging behind MEAC.  :shrug:  SCSU will be ok.  We all have to recover from Covid financially.

What do divisions have to do with it? ALL schools are hurting, from D3 to NAIA all the way up to FBS and D1! What good will rethinking divisions do?  :shrug:

????  SCSU budget was lagging before COVID and a lot of it had to do with the state.  Their enrollment was down before COVID and at one point it was stated that they had fewer students than Benedict.  We are not all where SCSU is. I know you are pushing your normal drop-down philosophy but at least find a relevant topic to use it in.  :shrug:

Man don't get me started on this.  Let's just say, Most SCSUers are not as angry as we should be about some of the current affairs at the school. Many of us felt that it served some people right.  Some of these negative affairs were necessary to eliminate certain factions from the university forever.  That has occurred and a new day is dawning.  It'll take time, but like i said, SCSU is fine and dandy.

IMHO it would have been a serious challenge for Dr. Hugine as well.  These crackers had their sights on getting rid of SCSU all together but there was so much push back about eliminating the only public HBCU in the state that they decided to step back and wait for it to implode. :shrug:

Money is the biggest factor in determining what division you should be in. Sure there are others, but you have to be able to pay to compete.
