Current and former Fayetteville State softball players have filed a Title IX lawsuit against the university, according to the Fayetteville Observer. The group alleges inequitable funding and treatment between the men’s and women’s teams. Some of the grips in a 65-page document include forced fundraising activities, limited practice times, inadequate equipment and more. The Department of Education plans to launch an investigation in August. And don’t forget, former women’s basketball coach Eric Tucker still has a wrongful termination suit against the university, which refuses to settle.

Football kickoff. The SWAC kicks off the football season with its Media Day Friday in Birmingham, Alabama. Robert Williamson will moderate the live coverage at 10 a.m. CST on the SWAC Digital Network. The conference’s website, swac.org, will also carry video and radio broadcast stream.

He did what?! Folks are still talking about Tuskegee’s Leon Douglas resigning as men’s basketball coach. According to the university, Douglas turned down a compensation package that would have made him the highest paid SIAC coach. However, sources say Douglas has higher aspirations. Don’t be surprised to see him pop up as men’s basketball coach and athletic director at Miles College. We shall see.

On the move. Former N.C. Central offensive line coach Jamar Harp has accepted the same position at the SIAC’s Paine College, which is playing in its first season of Division II football. According to footballscoop.com, Savannah State has released defensive coordinator Corey Barlow.
