CEEJAY's Commentary Corner: The 'State' of The BCU Marching Wildcats With The Suspension of the Marching 100


Welcome to your Spiritual Sports Segment, the very first C.E.E.J.A.Y.'s Commentary Corner on The 'State' of BCU Marching Wildcats With The Suspension of the Marching 100.



Marching 100 Suspended
As news broke  yesterday that Dr. James Ammons, President of Florida A&M University, suspended the world famous Marching 100 through the 2012-13 academic year, stating "I think there is a period we should take that these measures are in place and we have addressed all the institutional issues.”  With the suspension, it has, in my opinion created a tremendous amount of wonder in the minds of those associated with FAMU and Bethune Cookman University concerning how the annual Florida Classic football game played in Orlando, FL will ‘play’ out….particularly on the field during the halftime show.  Here are my perspective thoughts on the future of the Marching 100’s rival program:


Marching Wildcats of
Bethune Cookman University
With the aftermath of the Marching 100 being suspended, I guarantee that one or two scenarios will play out and one being to the benefit of the Marching Wildcats.  First, I believe the most viable conclusion is that the Marching Wildcats will be awarded additional off the field performances that may have gone to the Marching 100 due to the suspension.  In addition, once they are re-instated, BCU will continue to receive off the field performances for years to come because corporations will want to stay away from a toxic program on the mend.  The second scenario that could play out is the Marching Wildcats could suffer the repercussions of the Marching 100's suspension and corporations will stay away from not only the Marching Wildcats program, but all HBCU marching band programs for fear of the same culture being established at the schools, just not yet uncovered.  However comma I firmly believe the Marching Wildcats will prevail in the first scenario as Director of Bands, Donovan V. Wells along with his phenomenal leadership staff, will continue to lead the Marching Wildcats with discipline and a vision that is focused on nothing shy of excellence in all they do.

NL-MLB Scores & USC Gets Gains Control of the LA Coliseum: 5/15, Vol. 142, 2nd Edition

I can see that it's hurting you, I can feel your pain…it's hard to see the sunshine, through the rain. Oh I know sometimes it seems as if it’s never gonna end, but you'll get through it, but just don't give in!  Welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y! 
 


USC/LA Colisuem
There were a plethora of games on the diamond in the National League in Major League Baseball as the Colorado Rockies came up short against the San Francisco Giants 3-2 as Gregor Blanco launched his 1st homerun of the season, the Chicago Cubs got past the defending champions St. Louis Cardinals 6-4 as Alfonso Soriano broke up the tied ball game with an RBI in the 8th inning, the San Diego Padres was pasted by  the Washington Nationals 8-5 as Bryce Harper hit his 1st major league homerun, the Philadelphia Phillies dominated the Houston Astros 5-1 as Placido Polanco belted his 1st homerun of the season, but more importantly achieved his 2,000th career hit, the Cincinnati Reds erased the Atlanta Braves 3-1 as Logan Ondrusek notched his 3rd win of the season, while the Milwaukee Brewers lost 3-1 to the New York Mets, the Pittsburgh Pirates cooled off the Miami Marlins and won by a run 3-2 as Brad Lincoln notched his 3rd win of the season and LA Dodgers managed to get a win 3-1 against the Arizona Diamondbacks with a homerun from Andre Ethier.

In sporting news, USC is getting their wish!  In a vote of 8-1, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum commission approved to hand over day-to-day control of the publicly owned stadium to USC on Monday.  The one vote who opposed the agreement was commissioner Bernard C. Parks for reasons unknown at this time.  The coliseum, which is 88 years old, will now have its master lease under the control of USC which had been seeking control for years and it gives the university exclusive right to use, manage and operate the facility.  After rejecting USC’s offer to pay $100 million to renovate the Coliseum four years ago in exchange for the master lease, the commission finally concluded they will not be able to keep their promise last year to USC to make $50 million in improvements.  Now that USC has control of the stadium, they plan to return the Coliseum back to its rich and beautiful condition that once hosted events such as Super Bowls and Summer Olympics.
