    Sean, saw your various tweets on my column. I’m wide-open to clarify or debate my opinion if you want to reach me by email.

      Good morning my good man. Thanks for all that you do. However, I do respect your thoughts and you have great points. I know for a fact that the conference should not be at fault for each school’s academic short fall. Each school has been trained and monitored by the NCAA. It’s the school administration who made the mistake..not the SWAC. THOSE KID PLAYING NOW SHOULD NOT BE PENALIZED FOR SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED WHEN THEY WERE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL. By allowing each team to participate was more of a finaicial gain for the conference in regaurds to the touranment. The crowd has improved Howevever not allowing those teams in the NCAA was fair. All in all , what’s wrong with the SWAC trying to step up their game…..
