[quote]Definitely wouldn't go from Southern to a major program. A Sun Belt job is probably the biggest and most reasonable immediate step up he'd get offered. [/quote]
From SU to Sun Belt is a good move. If I were him I'd take it. But, I have to think if Banks has another team to give a high seed...

Roman Banks has resurrected Southern University basketball and what his team did today against a #1 seed Gonzaga was truly impressive. We all know the NCAA tournament is where young, up-and-coming coaches are discovered by the masses and the mainstream media so I figure that Banks' profile is rising...

All-time winningest coach in Bengals history, a great defensive coach, drafts very well, his team are usually always competitive (if not at least in the playoffs or on the cusp of the playoffs), and he's done all this coaching for a historically cheap franchise. This is why Marvin Lewis still has hi...

Another thing, HBCU football won't turn around until they start playing in the playoffs with the other FCS schools. HBCUs need to rearrange their schedules so they can play in these playoffs.

Bell is an OK RB. OK at best by SEC standards. SEC teams are so stacked at a position like RB that the RBs never put up the numbers like Bell or Montee Ball because they have to share the ball.
