ANDRE’S ASCENSION - DAVID SHA - 9/15/2014


ANDRE’S ASCENSION
Written by: David Sha
Date posted: 9/15/2014

I’m probably the biggest #80 fan around.  It’s almost to the level of a man-crush.  I am a true fan-boy when it comes to my hometown team’s all-time leading receiver.  

There’s only one other athlete that played for a Houston professional team that I get more crazy over and that’s Hakeem"The Dream"!!!!

This series of blogs will be short and to the point.  

At this point, Andre Johnson is sitting at #15 on the all-time receiving yards list after passing Irving Fryar this past Sunday in a game vs. the Oakland Raiders.  

His 12,828 yards is now 261 yards away from the mark Hall of Famer, Steve Largent, set during his illustrious career.  Largent’s mark was actually #1 until Mr. Jerry Rice aka the GOAT ran past him and kept it moving.  

Since then, several players have moved past the former Seahawk great.  

Let’s hope Andre Johnson stays healthy and puts up his usual big numbers for the rest of this season and beyond, so that there will be no doubt that he belongs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame five years after he hangs up the cleats.

ADAM CLANTON "MUTE" ON COLLEGE FOOTBALL MATCH-UPS - LM



 ADAM CLANTON "MUTE" ON COLLEGE MATCH-UPS
Written By: LM
9.12.2014

I've stopped blogging about Adam Clanton but Thursday morning, he did something that caught my and other's attention.

As a morning personality in the Fourth Largest city in America, I expect a host to know college football or at least bullshit their way through it.

A couple weeks ago, Lance Zierlein asked Adam Clanton about his knowledge or interest in college football, Adam's reply falls in line with the audio captured Thursday morning.

Thursday morning, Lance Zierlein asked the crew their thoughts of the week's college match ups.  The show suddenly became a discussion between Lance Zierlein and the Producer Michael Conner.   Adam Clanton went completely silent.  The "Kill Shot" was Lance lowly saying "I guess that wraps up our college segment".

College football talk is a level below the NFL, the audience wants to hear it.   If a prime time show can't dive into college football outside of Texas A & M and University of Texas, it looks bad.  Hell, we are not talking high level college ball or Xs and Os, we are talking Match Ups, that's a website click.

John Lopez and even Rich Lord could talk "Match Ups".

Outside of Houston Rockets, Headline Stories and Goof Ball shit, there are little to no expectations

Inside the HBCU Huddle

09/11/14

Houston, TX – This week our interest shifts to the HBCU Football Classic, Events and the Cultural Identity experience of those participating in these events, which include not only the college athletes, but also the band members and college trainers that have an opportunity to perform in front of traditionally larger crowds, often in NFL stadiums for the which all a part of the larger HBCU Diaspora.   The HBCU Football Classic, Events and the Cultural Identity often include Pan-Hellenic (Greek) Step-shows/Parties, Fashion-Shows, Fundraising Galas/Luncheons/Dinners, Hall-of-Fame Ceremonies, Job/Career Fairs, Concerts, Symposiums, Debates, Think Tanks, and Research Presentations.  It is important to review the HBCU Football Classic, Events and the Cultural Identity experience from a historical overview of intercollegiate athletic programs at HBCUs, especially in this current environment surrounding the challenges facing these programs.  This is outlined in greater detail in the Journal of Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics, 2014 College Sport Research Institute in the following research study: http://csri-jiia.org/documents/puclications/research_articles/2014/JIIA_2014_7_15_307_332_The_Case_of_HBSU.pdf   

 The State of Intercollegiate Athletics at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs): Past, Present, & Persistence

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to provide a historical overview of intercollegiate athletic programs at historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs), highlight the current challenges facing these programs, and offer a plan for self-sustainability and collective progress. Prior to the 1960s, the sustainability of HBCU athletic programs was rooted in their unifying missions and interdependent relationships. However, following widespread assimilation efforts in the post-Civil Rights era, HBCU athletic programs suffered from the pillaging of Black athletic talent from the Black community to major Division I Historically White Colleges and Universities (HWCUs). Previous historical assessments of HBCUs athletic programs have confined their analysis to major historical events, the evolution of conference affiliations, and the attendance at various HBCU classic games (Armstrong, 2001; Cavil, 2013a; Hodge, Bennett, & Collins, 2013; Wiggins, 2000). In the current manuscript, critical race theory (CRT) was incorporated as an analytic tool to outline the multi-level challenges facing HBCU athletic programs within the structural arrangements of the United States (U.S.) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). In an effort to improve the plight of HBCU athletic programs, the authors offer Ten Pillars for Active Engagement for Sport Leadership & Administration in Creating Athletic Organizational Success & Sustainability for autonomy governance as well as a secession plan as a pathway for success.

"INSIDE THE HBCU HUDDLE" is here for its inaugural release featuring four "HBCU Games of the Week" analysis with columnist Brandon Bolden and executive editor Dr. J. Kenyatta Cavil.

Dr. Cavil and Demetrius write about the HBCU Classic Game of the Week featuring No. 2 Jackson State (2-0, 0-0) at No. 5 Tennessee State (1-1, 0-0); the HBCU Non-Conference Major Division Game of the Week, featuring No. 7 South Carolina Stae (1-1, 0-0) at Coastal Carolina Chanticleers* (2-0, 0-0)
