RE: Savannah State headed to D-II
There's no taking offense, it's just that the term "half-HBCU" is a misnomer. Maybe if half of the colleges in the school were historically segregated or something or that were two distinct sides on campus but you either are or aren't. Tennessee State is an HBCU through and through and even if it became 100% Anglo-Saxon, it'd still be an HBCU.

Like I said, I made up the term for the sole purpose of reflecting that Tenn St had a modern era merger with another public university (which AFAIK is unique for HBCU's, in the modern era) and which might explain why it's the only DI HBCU not in the MEAC or SWAC. Had no intension of implying it was "lesser".

Keep calm, and carry on

Diploma mills have turned out to be scams, and any degrees the kids get, can't get a job because those degrees and diplomas are worth nothing.

Second, law makers want to get kids enroll into VoTech schools to get skills to become plumbers, technicians and so forth. Not many poor kids can go to VoTech because they have some type of disabilities. There are not many universities and colleges that are for disabled kids to go to. The only one I can think of is the school in DC called Gallaudet University which fields a football team for deaf kids at the D3 level. The kids went undefeated until the first round of D3 playoffs. ESPN made a big deal about them that year. I could see a spring scrimmage for them with a Maryland or somebody to help raise funds for that University.

Even if they aren't worth much, they at least can show that people can do the work. It's not as if a regular/traditional campus experience means as much as it used to.
