9361  Discussion / Sports Forum / Re: Would your HBCU hire a white football coach? on: January 06, 2010, 08:34:55 PM
Personally, I want the best qualified person for the job - period.   nod

Realistically, this would be a tough to sell in the Valley.   nono2

9362  Discussion / Sports Forum / Re: The 2009 CIAA tournament generated 38 million for Charlotte on: January 06, 2010, 02:11:21 PM
I remember hearing 75 k per school a while back.

I remember hearing that, but I thought that was for Raleigh.  CIAA was barely pushing 12 million in impact in Raleigh.  In three years it's tripled.  I don't know if that is influenced by higher hotel costs or whatever.  Point is, people are spending money. .


The economic impact is definitely influenced by the increased costs in Charlotte.  If the costs to host the tourney were the same as it was in Raleigh, the numbers would be closer.

The unofficial word is McNeill has been hired as the HC.Press conference is either tomorrow or Friday as predicted. What does everybody in Onnidan land think of this new hire?

Coach McNeil has proven that he can win as HFC.   nod 

The question is, will the CAU admin give him the tools to be successful?   shrug

If not, CAU will travel down this road once again.

That is true.  Time will tell if this was a good hire or not. 
9365  Discussion / Politics / Re: Harold Ford in NY on: January 06, 2010, 09:27:12 AM
he couldn't win in tennessee. 

 lol

I'm not so sure I agree with that. He came pretty close the last time.

That is true.  Perhaps he should have tried run again in the next election when TN votes for a US Senator.   shrug

9368  Discussion / Sports Forum / Re: Question: Expansion of Mountain West Conference (MWC) on: January 05, 2010, 08:14:58 PM
.........  So even if the BCS conference went to a playoff (NOTE: They will not, at best a plus one), they still would likely use some automatic qualifier format.


I agree with you on this one.  If there was a playoff at the BCS level, I am inclined to think that there would be an auto qualifier format that would limit the # of participants that were not members of the ACC, SEC, Big 10, 12, and East. 

You know that they want to maximize the $$ that they receive and almost exclude everyone else.

9371  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / Re: Kasim Reed taking office as Atlanta's 59th mayor on: January 05, 2010, 01:36:27 PM
What happened to the lady? I though she was so far ahead in the polls.  shrug

No, Cap. She was NOT far ahead. She and Kasim were neck and neck.
I think she may have been ahead when running against Kasim AND Lisa Borders.
I really did think Mary would take it...with her lil bighead self.  lol

That would be a good assessment.  Kasim won over more of Lisa's supporters than Mary.   The run off was a tight race.  There was a concerted effort to get AA voters to the polls for the run off election.

9374  Discussion / Sports Forum / Re: WSSU returning to the CIAA on: January 04, 2010, 05:36:03 PM


The bottom line is...drumroll..$$$$$$ Secondly, the university system doesn't cater to certain disgruntled alumni unless they...have money! WSSU is no longer a private entity but one funded by N.C. tax payers--some of who make deals with lobbyists in Raleigh to funnel money to their institutions. It is about political clout and deep pockets.........


That pretty much sums up the situation.   nod   Those with deep pockets get their wants catered.  This political clout is at play all year long not just during the legislative session.
