Birmingham, Ala. – The SWAC Council of Presidents and Chancellors voted Thursday to adopt a league policy to prohibit any member institution subject to NCAA postseason bans to include SWAC championships and tournaments. The policy is effective immediately.

Currently, the policy prohibits Southern and Jackson State from being eligible to participate in the 2011 Farmers Insurance SWAC Football Championship, and it prohibits the Southern and Grambling State men’s basketball teams from participation in the 2012 Farmers Insurance SWAC Basketball Tournament.


  1. I think this is the first time in a long time the SWAC did something right. It’s about time we take academics seriously rather than shaking our pom poms on Saturday night. This forces schools to raise their bar!!!
