Oh no... don't get it twisted. This was a shot across the bow of any program that has said anything negative about the program Coach Ross is running.
"none" of the adjectives he used describe hbcu coaches. yet on the other hand, "all" of the adjectives he used describe "bcs" schools. that's one helluva reach for you to construe his statements to be directed at "any" hbcu coaches. i was personally at the finals and i can tell you for a "fact" that none of the meac teams, none of the meac coaches, nor fans showed any "resentment" towards a&t whatsoever during the indoor finals and they had plenty of opportunities to do so given that a&t's name was announced "numerous times" over the pa system during the finals. i heard "zero" boo's coming from the crowd when a&t was being recognized over the pa system for our first place finishes.
there is "nothing" in his statements that's indicative of hbcu's, i don't see how anybody can draw that kind of conclusion from his statements. famu's former women's coach don't even work at famu anymore or coach track anymore, so why would coach ross waste his time addressing someone who is not relevant and not even coaching anymore? he stated he was referring to coaches who have those "cushie jobs", not coaches who don't coach anymore. besides, neither of famu's teams were anywhere near being in contention for the indoor championships, neither of their teams even finished in the top 5, much less contend with a&t for a championship. accusing famu's former coach relative to coach ross's statements don't even make sense...
