HBCUs have long been the supporting cast in college sports, playing in Division I-AA or lower while the bigger schools garnered all the attention and TV revenue. But as conference realignment continues to reshape the landscape of college athletics, HBCUs can no longer afford to take a "wait and see" approach. Storied programs are not hanging on to the past like Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).Last year, Texas and Oklahoma recognized the writing on the wall and decided to depart the Big 12 for the SEC. North Carolina A&T and Hampton went from conferences to join the CAA a year later. Howard flirted with exiting the MEAC after Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman successfully entered the SWAC. The time is now for HBCUs to make their move. If they don't, they'll be left behind in the new world of college sports.
