I don't see WSSU fans supporting this unless the Ram are in the game.

 This benefits WSSU and City of Winston Salem regardless of who is playing.

The issue at hand is the ability for WSSU and the city of Winston-Salem to generate revenue and exposure. 
As a person that went to Florence, Alabama last month, I was amazed the the NCAA continues to host their Division II championship game there.  Winston-Salem is far easier to get to , and has more to do within the area.  In addition the "stadium" was not at the level of some high school fields that I have seen. 
So I applaud Coach Hayes for at least making an attempt to "up our game" so to speak.

The City of Winston-Salem would have to be behind this.  Salem, VA wrote the book on how to host a national title game.  The whole town shows up.  The stadium is sold out before they even know who is going to play in the D-3 championship game.

Winston-Salem could do the same thing.  If WSSU is in the championship game that is icing on the cake.  What you would have would be more whites in attendance than Blacks if WSSU or another HBCU made it to the championship game.

The real trip is how that you and I have been having this discussion since Dec 16. and Hayes is thinking the same.  But I can't.....................................oh never mind. Cheesy  Seriously we have to use our positions with the NAA to try to support this.

The powers that be might be a little shell shot from the MEAC Tournament fiasco.

That is what TU is giving up the TDC for, a chance to go there, and their stadium is a pin house compaired to TU's stadium. Coach Hays is looking for ways to make money, not give away money so that is a very smart idea on his part.

Bravo. I take my hat off to a man like Hayes that is thinking forward, not hindered by circumstances, takes chances and not being stuck in woe-is me land and "you know we just got out of slavery" blah, blah, blah.

Different situation here.  BTW, that was that man's fault too to some degree.
