 :lol:^^^Mr. cee dog…….one of the SADDEST byproducts of TSU football being mired in ABJECT mediocrity over the last 15 years or so is what it has done to TSU’s traditional rivals. And FAMU, inarguably, was one of TSU’s top 2-3 historic rivals. :shrug:

There was a time when you would NEVER see one alum or fan of TSU or FAMU wear the other school’s apparel. I was just being silly with my man, blue^^^, but the sad reality is that current students and recent grads of BOTH schools have only vague memories of the rival. And, hell, these kids don’t even rock apparel from their OWN HBCU, let alone another HBCU. :shrug:

I don't wear apparel from any HBCU other than FAMU. However, I would consider wearing HBCU paraphernalia from Morehouse.

- TnSU only, but I will wear any HBCU, but "never" a pwi for any reason.

???…..uhhhh, you will wear “any” HBCU gear? Including FAMU?   ;D

[Poster’s note: You have to be a Big Blue alum/supporter to FULLY understand why I posed that question to blue.]

- Strike79, if it's for a good cause to help a fellow HBCU in location(s) where there is only pwi reperesentation, I could wear the orange and green. ;D ;) :)

I may get some other HBCU paraphernalia this year. I just know that I can't rock it at any Wildcat games nor events. It wouldn't be pretty.

that's all...   :shrug: :lol:

I rarely do.  What I have worn from other HBCUs was given to me.  Golden Kitten gave me a beautiful Tuskegee shirt one year at a Pioneer Bowl. It was a little tight and I gave it to Mommie y.  She stopped wearing it as much because of the stupid people in Fayetteville.  She got tired of being asked why she was wearing a Tuskegee shirt and she didn't go there.   

Nobody has ever asked her why she wears a UNC-Chapel Hill shirt and she never went there.

Ive seen some really nice hbcu winter sweaters on various sites.
The only thing I don't know is if the items are licensed by the schools.
And do the schools get a percentage of the sales.....IDK?

^^^That’s why I always buy directly from the school.  HBCUs are seeing a Renaissance and everyone is jumping on the bandwagon. I’ve seen apparel in Wally World and otherr sites.
