Ruffin revealed that Tuskegee, which hired him from rival Miles College the winter, is looking to move to Division I.

“BTW you not going to leave Tuskegee University out of it because we are going D1 and yes I said it,” Ruffin continued.

It's time to let Uncle Booker's dreams flourish on the next level. After over 100-plus years, change is long overdue. Complacency is not how one will conquer the world.
