  3. It don”t take an alumnus to get JSU back on track, it will take money something that most alumnae are not wanting to here. Alumni giving is less than two percent, and you think them good white folk gone allow you all to get a 60k seat stadium on campus, Negro Please. You getting more than old, u getting HIGH!!!! Hell when you all had your own you didn”t treat them right. As for the former football players go, they will spend a thousand dollars on meat and liquor and turn around and call the football office for a spot on the pass list. Now run tell that co@#$%&*er!!!!!!
