May as well because HBCU TV games are boring. It's one of those things you have to attend live, tailgate, drink, hang out with your friends and listen to folk cut the fool/talk smack in the crowd.  Other than that, the band is the next best thing going.

This should boost the ratings. Let's just hope they do a better job of scheduling better matchups this year.

Which ones? Gridiron or bands?

Gridiron but preferably both. BCU, A&T, SCSU, and FAMU need to be on a weekly rotation. Those will be best representatives for the conference (football, crowd, band) at this point.

ESPN is going to base their selection of games on the quality of the teams that are playing.  Whenever NCCU has had a game on ESPN in Durham we have had near sellout crowds at OKR.
