In 2013, I wrote a column in this space where I talked about the very personal conversion I had regarding my feelings on same sex marriage. I had gro...
The NCAA-HBCU relationship is one where both sides need to stop lying to each other. The NCAA shouldn't act like we're more than a second-string mistress in its business and marketing objectives, and HBCUs shouldn't act like we care about NCAA compliance and oversight.
