Once famous football player must rent part of his house in order to support himself. A single mother and her two kids are the latest tenants. He also owns a sports clinic that he barely manages to run with a little help from his friends.
This was not just one of the few shows that depicted college life, It was the only show that showed life at a Black College. From exam craziness, relationships, and finding part-time jobs to interracial dating, Step shows, and hate crimes, This show handled it all and with style. Even difficult topics (HIV/AIDS, going to war, ex-prisoners)were addressed in the way would make you laugh and think. An amazing number of famous Black Actors and Actresses passed through Hillman halls (even Whoopi Goldberg was a professor on an episode). What was originally just a Cosby spin-off proved to be truly a force of it's own. (Although you didn't really see them study after Junior Year)
