I repeat!!!Dear Auburn, Alabama, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Troy State, hell anybody outside of the SWAC that has a track & field program. Will you please come steal Coach Beene from Alabama State!?!?
I'm so ready for the days of old of my Flying Tigers dominating the SWAC!!
I was especially impressed with Pine Bluff who only entered one runner in the open 400, and he finished 5th. Where did those other 3 legs come from? Did they use their 400m hurdlers?We had no choice! I'm impressed with Pine Bluff and Valley mile relays. Great times!
The big issue in Texas is the athletes that need to be here and can help you their high school coaches and summer coaches want to play hard ball. Especially track for some reason.Maybe TSU will open the old check book to make that coach want to live in the 4th largest city in the country
Yep cause Alcorn got a QB from LSU in Marcus Taylor but he wasn’t McNair by any means. SU got the ones that played big roles at LSU but other issues got in the way so they left and you heard about them still and they didn’t like that. It was dry until SU got an offensive linemen from there a few years back but he never got grades straight.
Spears and Doug at Grambling could get them from LSU and then Spears got some to TSU when he was with Johnie Cole.
Walter Highsmith of TSU could get those high level thug transfers lol but Johnie Cole was the last coach in the SWAC who was in on every transfer. Barlow was a close third. Some were legit others weren’t as good and some didn’t belong on a campus of any means. Lol
And it is not just track and field. I have heard a former TSU basketball coach say the same thing. I am sure it is the same in football.The big issue in Texas is the athletes that need to be here and can help you their high school coaches and summer coaches want to play hard ball. Especially track for some reason.
Lancaster High School was built by a PV alum and there has been NO pipeline.
Other coaches will get mad at HBCUs when we don’t take the 10.9 sprinter but will hand the other schools the 10.3 kid with no hesitation and will give them another one if the school messes over them.
Well, yes and no. When you say sprinting, are you talking about technique or speed? If you are talking about technique, then yes that can be coached, but if you are talking about speed, then no. Speed is something you either have it or you don't.Sprinting can be coached...
