Well that UEN fiasco definitely was a good enough reason to force him out.
FAMU is taking steps to decrease their liability. The conference by-laws are clear so eventually UEN will go after the individual schools claiming those schools acted in bad faith. Firing or forcing the A.D. to resign allows the schools to shift the blame on one person/administrator, an old mitigation tactic that works from time to time.
Eh… Certain games were grandfathered as they had rights deals in place per-2005. Honestly, I also think wrangling away these rights from the promoters (including the Bayou Classic Consortium) in an effort to garner $1 million plus for schools yearly is being considered.The SWAC doesn’t own individual schools broadcasting rights. If it did the Bayou Classic would be on another network. The State Fair Classic would be on a TV platform.
Is Grambling's AD next? With all of those unforced errors going on over there before the UEN deal I cant imagine his job being secure
