Albany State beat them in the regular season, but was matched up with them in the first round. Even though ASU was up by 24 and loss, they drew the national champs in the first round.

That wasn't the first round. They lost to Valdosta in the quarterfinals that year by the score of 38-24. It was in 2004.

ONward... tiptoe

That game happened to be the regional final.

Sometimes it appears that one has to be a fan of an institution who chooses to participate in the playoffs to understand the desire to want to compete in that endeavor.

To each, his own.

Eagle Pride,

What made the difference in the game day experiences at App ST and Liberty for it to exceed your HBCU game day experience?   shrug 

Just curious.....

Both defenses are going to be pumped for the game. So, I don't think that we'll see much difference there. I expect, considering the way TU lost to ASU, that THIS game will be closely contested. TU has more to lose with a loss than Morehouse does. At the same time, We've lost to TU something like 4 straight times, so I'm sure that that will be more than enough motivation for Morehouse to match TU's sense of urgency. Barring any unforseen problems (inuries, weather, etc), I expect this to be a high scoring, down to the wire game.

Morehouse has not beaten Tuskegee since 2003.  Therefore, it has been six consecutive years.

 Shocked  Hmmm....

Morehouse defeated TU in '03?  I had forgotten about that.  I recall the defeat in 2001 when the 3 way tie occurred.

The AFCA poll may have more credibility since actual coaches are voting in the poll.  What counts is the regional polls that will be coming out soon.  If WSSU is ranked come season end, they will make the playoffs.

This week's episode will be shown again on Sunday night (10/3).  At least that has been the precedent set so far this season.

But that doesn't reflect Liberty's current mindset and mission.  They have a significant minority enrollment currently; especially in their online programs.  As a competitor in the online environment, I commend them on doing what many state sponsored universities cannot in getting a foothold in the lucrative Fort Bragg/Fayetteville market.

It also cannot be called the most diverse non hbcu.  I have no problem labeling Georgia State University that dubious honor.

Sly Fox said 'private'.  And nearly 16% of their enrollment is black.  I'm not willing to research to say it's true; but I will say that is a significant percentage.

I wish you would
I cannot find that info anywhere
I would hazard a guess that most are online students
cuz you sure don't that ratio on campus

Just go to the DOE's website and conduct a search.  The numbers below are based on 2009 enrollment.

Total enrollment: 46,312
Undergraduate enrollment: 28,986
Percent of Undergraduate enrollment
   by gender
      Men: 46.2%
      Women: 53.8%
   by race/ethnicity
      White non-Hispanic: 58.4%
      Black non-Hispanic: 13.6%
      Hispanic: 3.3%
      Asian or Pacific Islander: 1.2%
      American Indian or Alaskan Native: 0.5%
      Race-ethnicity unknown: 19.5%
      Non-resident alien: 3.7%
(Enrollment data Fall 2009) 

I would think that the total enrollment figure includes those who are enroll in the distance learning programs.

9417  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / Re: Southwest Airlines buys Airtran on: September 27, 2010, 12:34:00 PM
I love the move.  Cheaper flights between Atlanta and more markets across the US.

This is definitely a win-win for the flying public.   nod

Thanks for sharing.    nod
9419  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / Re: Southwest Airlines buys Airtran on: September 27, 2010, 10:38:13 AM
I guess Southwest is trying to make a presence in Atlanta now and make it difficult for Delta.


Perhaps now SW is not afraid of Delta.  Years ago, the city of ATL tried to lure SW to the market but it came out that they were afraid to go head to head against Delta.  Then Value Jet/ Air Tran came on the seen.  Go figure.....

For me, it was the Miles-KY ST game that kept me from being perfect for the week.  Who knows which bad news bear team will show up?   shrug
