Not really

If anything, the SWAC is gonna join the MEAC. The Mississippi schools sans Jackson State may be next to drop if not a total school closure/merger. TSU went through another corruption scandal, their administration may get taken over or they may lose accreditation (just a hunch, nothing substantiated). Another hunch is I could see Grambling going away or merging with Louisiana Tech. Same with Southern and LSU.


I think Jackson State is turning into a multi-race university, and not truly an HBCU like it used to be. They may survive. One report is that Jackson State will be saved while one of the other schools which I forget, either Alcorn State or Mississippi Valley State would merged into Jackson State. Sadly, the Grambling State Vs Southern U. is the hot game in the SWAC selling out a lot of tickets that are FBS size crowds. Too bad they can't get the fans out to support them when they take on the other SWAC teams.

I'd have never imagined that. Jackson doesn't strike me as a multi-cultural area, so having a muti-ethnic schools to deflect that seems unusual.

Yeah, Jackson State had an award winning white quarterback who started for them a few years ago. Helped Jackson State win so many football games.

The quarterback's name is Casey Therriault. With 10,000 students enrolled including whites lead them to be one of the top HBCU with a student body count. They figured out a way to save the school without controversies like some of the others.

Time for HBCU's to go the way of the dinosaur. Seems redundant and outdated with African-American students at every other school in the country, the presence of junior colleges and with diploma mills popping up for people both in person and online for those that can't handle major university curriculum.

And stop, not only am I black but I went to an HBCU, granted one of the better ones (I'm just a lifelong Coog fan).

What does being a Multi Race university have to do with HBCU status? One doesn't have an impact on the other.

Casey wasn't the first, second, nor third white QB at Jackson State. No sure what point you're trying to make.

I am arguing that they are not closing down, or heading to a lower level. They are not hurting like Alcorn State or Mississippi Valley State. The lawmakers in the state wants to merge those two into other schools, and one of the two will be merged into Jackson State if they get their way. It is a fight from advocates against merging the schools. You can't run these schools with no money.
