The thing that we all are going to have to realize, and adapt to is that Collegiate Athletics as we have known it in our lifetime is undergoing a huge paradigm shift. All universities, regardless of size or classification, are either going to have to step up their spending on athletics, or not be a player in the game. In the modern day world of college athletics, scholarships are just the very beginning of what the modern day athlete are looking for.  They are looking at how much they can make off of NIL, who has the nicest, over the top facilities, and on the Power 5 / Group of 5 Level, who can give them the surest route to the NFL. Even having pretty coeds to greet potential recruits isn’t going to have the same effect as it had in our era. Even though it may take a few years for all the paradigm shifts to filter down to FCS / D2, it’s like a huge, unstoppable snowball gaining momentum. Like it or not, it’s going to affect all of us, sooner or later. It will behoove all of our institutions to be able to adapt to the changing environment of collegiate athletics.

All of our institutions are going to have to invest in our programs going forward!!!

My alma mater is in the midst of finding this out.

Most of the comments on the topic,as to Tuskegee University attempts to move D-1 , are totally opinionated.

Allow the following facts,speaks for themselves, in regards to Tuskegee University Football.

1.Most of the "so-called" D-1 HBCU football teams,came from the same conference as Tuskegee University  " SIAC"

2. Tuskegee University Football Teams,have been very successful when playing those teams in recent years,like beating FAMU and Jackson State,within the same year,remember these are two different conferences ( SWAC & MEAC).

3.Alway plays great against Alabama State, whom doesn't sell out at home until they play Tuskegee University,as the highest revenue team that they play at home,including attendance.

4.Most "so-called" HBCU football teams,like to play them simply they travel well and makes the promoters happy.

5.Lights or no lights, they kick butts with less scholarships.

6.Tuskegee University has the highest game attendance,not many HBCU teams  Division I orIi ,can say that?

Now,if they cqn go Division 1,some of you'll probably don't want to play them.
