    Editorial Blasts Promoters of HBCU Classics

    I read a thread on TSPN where people were complaining about the operations, but now this editorial has been posted on the Internet.

    How many other games associated with FCS football have outside promoters besides the HBCU games? I know LSSE is involved in the Battle of the Piney Woods...

    I have curbed my urge many times over the years to call out black college football event producers. However, the litany of issues I dealt with at this year’s State Fair Classic compelled me to put some light on the biggest problem contributing to the decline in attendance at black college football games; incompetent and uncaring management of these events by people who treat the fans and the media like second-class citizens. Event producers think they only have to please school administrators and corporate sponsors. It’s time to stop the madness. The fans and media are what make a Classic a success, not fake big shots.

    My Urban Sports News colleague, Henry Bailey, put it best when I discussed the 2011 Southwest Airlines State Fair Classic issues. He said, “These games are run by people with small minds trying to do big things.” I couldn’t put it any better, but here are the problems and my recommendations on fixing the event:
