Again,  Obviously there's no way you can accommodate me.  I speak from a place of knowledge of the real world and the athletics world.. But its ok.  because you have no knowledge of who I am and what I do AND the level at which I do it. SO.. again.. Nothing was misconstrued or taken out of context as I am more than capable of comprehending, dissecting and rebutting statements that make no sense at the core.  Have an awesome day.  KNOWITALL is signing off this thread.  My point has been made.  

Piece of advice.. Get a few more posts under your belt... Rookie.

See it how you want Blue Dog.. I work in this industry  So I speak from a place of knowledge and career experiences.. You are obviously speaking based on opinion and at this point emotion.   shrug

Blue Dog.. you are totally incorrect.. Your performance on the field is a DIRECT reflection of the school and the donors financial commitment... better facilities attract better players, better players win more games.. you win more games you win more championships.. you win more championships you get included.  And you repeat the cycle..  shrug pretty simple.

Let's not continue to be surprised that we get left out of these type situations.  As I have said on here for years, I work on the PWC side and they DO NOT respect HBCU's.  They know like we know, the commitment (financially) isn't there for our programs to be successful on a NATIONAL level so we get overlooked.  Let's not continue to act surprised when these things happen.  Start calling out the people who only talk a good game and don't give to the athletic department or to the program that you have an affinity for.  If you want your programs to get better then make a $10,000 commitment  or a $5000 commitment to the program and stop whining about getting left out.    Once we upgrade our facilities and our commitment to success then we will put teams on the field that command respect.  PLEASE remember.. This is NOT the same ERA that had FAMU winning a national championship.  We are SOOOO far removed from those days that they shouldn't even be mentioned if you are serious about moving forward.  So ask your friends, ask your buddies, ask you frat brothers are we serious or are we just about that lip service?  If you're serious.. look at what you spent on homecoming weekend this past year.. and make that same commitment to your football program next year.  Watch the needle begin to move. Trust me, it works.

Bragging that you've bought season tickets for 47 years doesn't get ANY buildings built and it doesn't move the needle!  When you know better.. do better!

If they play it in Atlanta and let the Circle City  promoters plan it, it will be a HUGE success..

Sponsors have nothing to do with conference affiliation and they certainly don't suggest that a school realign themselves with another conference.  Doesnt happen.  EVER.

Additionally, please believe what the other poster said earlier.  HBCU's are NOT attractive to PWC conferences on ANY level.  The finances suck, the facilities suck, the infrastructure sucks, the professional perception sucks.. we still have a "chitlin circuit" reputation among PWC's.

AAU IS THE WORST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE GAME... KIDS COME TO college with an entitlement mentality and if the coach dares to ask them to play defense or if they don't get 20 shots a night they aren't happy and they are ready to transfer... Or their "handler" ends up calling and checking on "how do y'all plan on using my guy in your system so we can decide if this is the best fit for his skill set......

On campus EGOS have always killed HBCU progress.  I agree 100%.  Chancellors want everybody to know who they are and they want it to be CLEAR that THEY run this show from top to bottom. !!
