SORT BY Relevancy
We talk with Albany State University Business Dean Michael Rogers and Albany Asst. Fire Chief Rubin Jordan about the university's new Fire Service Administration program. We also discuss the emerging political crisis for North Carolina HBCUs, and end with preseason picks for the four historically black football conferences.
We will take a look at the State of HBCU College Sports and HBCU Academics/Financial Status and how so many HBCUs got to this point where finances are front and center. And, the finances of those running these schools have put them in jeopardy. We will also take a look at the Pro Day of Jamies Winston. What does he need to prove today?
Brian Jenkins turned the Bethune-Cookman University football program into a winner, but off the field former players and coaches say the program was rife with rules violations and teetering on the edge of dysfunction because of the animosity between them and Jenkins, who is the new head coach at Alabama State University.
With one exception, they independently provided nearly identical details of rules violations and what they felt was Jenkins' mistreatment of players.
Allegations against Jenkins and his program include:
— Improper benefits provided to players;
— Improper housing arrangements;
— Continued and extensive violations of the NCAA weekly practice time limits;
— Failure to pay three assistant coaches that resulted in a federal lawsuit;
— And, bullying of staff and players with retaliation against those who spoke up.
Prior to Jenkins' departure in December from Bethune-Cookman, officials there had conducted an investigation into a number of allegations, and assistant athletic director Tony O'Neal, who wouldn't answer questions about the investigation, said, "Anything that needed to be reported (to the conference and NCAA) was reported."
"I talked with Coach Jenkins about those issues, and he was very up front with me about everything," Hines said. "My view on that is that it's all personnel matters from his previous workplace and this is a fresh start. (The trustees and I) have discussed those issues, and I made them aware of potentially what could be out there."
We talk with Alabama A&M athletic director Bryan Hicks about their new outreach to high school football in the region. We also discuss the new educational initiative from the Obama White House and round out with discussion on HBCU twitter drama.

This kickoff episode of the Football By Football podcast features three former NFL football players - linebackers Matt Chatham and Brady Poppinga, and quarterback Brady Quinn - in a players-only discussion of why they played this particular sport and what makes it so great. The guys discuss sound bites from football classics like "North Dallas Forty" and "Any Given Sunday," as well as clips from a K2 climbing documentary and JK Rowling in a broad roundtable on the appropriateness of danger in the game and chosing not to live cautiously.
This is an insight-packed show that sets the table for why we started footballbyfootball.com.

We have decided that we are going to go Division by Division for one show each week during this preseason. And who shall we start with?... well the AFC East of course! How could we not with the deflategate drama. Let's get this breakdown started...?
1. Why do we have HBCU's 2. Do HBCU's hold us back or project us forward? 3. How do they truly stack against each other (statistically: graduation rate, retention rate, number of degrees, value of degree, return on investment, starting salary, etc.) 4. Why did you choose HBCU or PWI. 5. Can HBCU's ever reach PWI size or stature. 1. Do HBCUs better fit African Americans Academically? 2. Why don't more black parents expose their children to HBCUs? Is there a culture stigma behind it? 3. Could the top HBCUS compare to the Top Ivy League schools? 4. Is pledging the divine 9 at PWI different than at HBCU? Is there still a need for the divine 9 at HBCUs? 1. How do we work to remove classism, elitism, sexism, etc. from HBCU culture? Is that even feasible? I.e. How do HBCUs avoid breeding Kanyes who are only angry until they have access to the parts of whiteness they envy? 2. How do pro black students at PWIs handle their experience? 3. Some black people feel unsafe in both spaces. Remedy? 1.Why do black students go to pwis only to try and recreate the HBCU experience? 2. Can a black student ever feel completely welcome at a pwi? 3. Do black students in the north hear enough about HBCUs in highschool? 4. Why do some black students choose pwis for "diversity" but only hang out with the black population?
