Just as we thought the media couldn’t make Florida A&M University look any worse, things are starting to look better.
After the FAMU football team returns from their victory win over Tennessee State University at the Atlanta Classic, the team is preparing for the 2007 Circle City Classic, in Indianapolis, Id.
The Circle City Classic is an annual showcase that was founded by the Indiana Black Expo and the Indiana Sports Corporation in 1984.
This year’s Circle City Classic, featuring Winston-Salem State and FAMU, will be aired on the NFL network. The game will be the first time a regular season college football game will be aired on the NFL network.
This shows that FAMU is always a part of being the first of many things. FAMU was the first to build a women’s athletic facility in the state of Florida, the first and the only university in the state of Florida that competed in the National Black MBA Association case competition, and now one of the first two college teams to be aired on the NFL network.
Many people had the belief that FAMU’s accreditation scare, as well as the attacks from the media, would bring down FAMU. It has only strengthened the spirit of the university.
This is not the first or the last of many strikes from the FAMU community. FAMU will continue to be the first of many things.
