    Stephen A., I disagree with you on this one. You talk about caché, notoriety, fundraising, finance, etc. What good is all of that if there is no INTEGRITY? As a proud FAMUAN and member of FAMU's Marching 100, I've witnessed first hand, the beauty, glory, and excellence of HBCU's. Don't act like the HBCU's don't have problems with certain individuals stealing Student Aid Funds, etc! Deion stated that he was "being transparent". He needed to be! HBCU's are ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like they used to be! Thank God for those presidents, board members, administrators, staff, and students of HBCU's that maintain their INTEGRITY (doing the right thing when no one's watching; because it's right). I loved when Deion simply asked, "How"? Deion is a man and a very astute man. Deion is sophisticated and "well versed" just like you Stephen A. I know you have a job "A", but what was done to Deion was abusive and terribly wrong (he was "targeted"). I'm going to say it like one of the men in the background after learning of this unfortunate incident,... "LORD HAVE MERCY"!

There is no way Dion should’ve gotten the FSU job He shouldn’t have the job he has now. Just because of his name. He should be coaching middle school or high school.

    completely disagree with SAS, Primetime got all of his things stolen why wouldn't he keep it 100? This was an opportunistic criminal taking advantage of some clearly shotty stadium security. A crime should be called a crime regardless of the gender, race, height or religion of the person who committed it. If a parent wants to keep their child from going to play for a HOF coach at a historic HBCU because of two thefts then so be it lol

    so, dont report crime.. got it. I am not sure how their funds look compared to some, but they have a 10 year deal for funding thanks to the last administration for HBCUs. Its sad that people steal, and hopefully they are punished to the extent needed, and furthermore, hopefully it doesnt happen again. Deion could do great things as a coach I believe. The man knows the game and has more than enough love for the game. I hope his tenure there is a good one, and that someone sees that he can handle a school like FSU.
