In wake of the latest wave of changes within the NCAA and collegiate athletics, the HBCU community has pondered if they want to break away from the NCAA and form an association of their own. In this case, I have created the Historic Black Collegiate Athletic Association (HBCAA) from scratch. There are three different tiers of competition regardless of sport. The tiers are determined off of the following factors: athletic budget, student enrollment, and athletic success. There are no penalties for playing a school from another tier. However, your schedule must consist of 80% of teams from your conference in order to be eligible for the HBCU National Tournament. You may notice that there are a collection of HBCU colleges from the NAIA along with the former NCAA members. Finally, media coverage would be done by BounceTV, TVOne, HSRN, and BET.
