Title: Not many dogs barking these days
Post by: Ram55 on September 11, 2021, 08:20:38 AM
For the past two years every other thread, on this forum, was about those Aggies from Greensboro. They constantly bragged about how they were levels better than the rest of the HBCU world. Now what. I here crickets coming out of Greensboro. These guys let the worst team in the ACC toy with them. Apparently beating an extremely week Kent State, or the weakest ECU ever got to their heads. Now if I come across sounding happy they got stomped  last night, it's because I  am very happy.
I'm guessing that only two or three will continue to post... but only for awhile. The so called "HBCUs Alabama", will become jokes as soon as this year. They be begging to come back to the MEAC. In three years they'll will begging to play WSSU in Winston. Just watch.

Sellouts.

Ram…….I understand the passion underlying your post. While you like to rib the Aggies on this board, and utterly disagree with their decision to withdraw from the Meac and align themselves with a white athletic conference, I would disagree with your conclusion that they are “sellouts”.

Look, no doubt the first two weeks have been humbling for the Aggies. Not sure anyone seriously thought they had a chance against an ACC program like Duke, but it’s likely going to be a long slog for them the rest of the season.

Don’t want to preach, but this is an HBCU board. It doesn’t help comity on this board to spitefully slam fellow HBCU’s. I say all of this out of respect for you and because I have too been humbled. The loss by my Rattlers ro JSU last weekend was humiliating, even if the margin was only by one point. Many Rattlers are shocked by our team’s performance. And our head coach is one who just last season was touted as a serious candidate for a head coaching position at either a mid-major program or coordinator at a Power 5 program.

Anyway, it’s gonna be a loooong season for many of us. Let’s not devolve into nastiness.  :shrug:

I agree with you Strike. I never hear/read of PWC’s talking/writing as much negative bullshyt about their peer schools as much as I do here on this site or other places. Sometimes we are our own enemy. I love my G-Ram but I won’t really start talking BS until we start going deep in the Playoffs and win big or just win against other top notch programs. And I’m talking about programs that are consistently in the playoffs and winning..We have to do more in every phase of the game offensively and defensively. Every position on the team including coaching must be top notch or they will be exposed and exploited and we will lose out most times.

In all honesty, when your FCS team beats an FBS team, your chest is SUPPOSED to stick out a little bit.
FBS-85 scholarships max.
FCS-63 scholarships max.
And I'm betting that these FBS school's athletic budgets will eclipse A&T's athletic budget, maybe 2-3 times over!
It's not A&T's fault that FBS schools like Kent State, ECU, and (was it UNC-Charlotte?) don't have their siht together!

The best thing about being right is that you don't need others cosigning. When our biggest and best don't lead they need to be called out, even if I have to be the only one doing it.

I'm just tired of seeing HBCUs get out coached by pwcs.  A&T held their own in the first half, but the Duke staff was studying them like they were a specimen under a microscope. They came back in the second, put the plan in place and blew them away. Is it staffing, lack of skilled staff, I don't get it. It happens most of the time when HBCUs play pwcs. We do ok in the first half but then..... :o

It might be more than just coaching,  but coaching is definitely a big part of it. We have yet to determine what percentage of coaching it is. IMO, Coach Broadway was the only HBCU coach that had the necessary coaching skills to match any opponent that stood across the field from him.  As they say, one side is playing checkers while the other side is playing chess.

The big difference in talent is between FBS and FCS.

Coach Richardson did it when he first got to SU by beating Northwestern State on a regular, but when it comes to HBCU coaches defeating PWI's at the DI level, the list is mighty short.

Halftime adjustments and depth are  basically our downfall in the long run.

The Arizona vs. Grambling game below from 2016 will prove my point.

Never fear the truth.  That is what happened.  Duke was running 2 plays to T's one.   Duke had a longer bench and could substitute fresh bodies on series.  They wore T down with that scheme.    Nothing against T but it happens.  I enjoyed the game and T while licking their wounds can afford the aspirins.  They are among many FCS teams playing power % opponents.

It all boils down to them having more talent. The team with the most talent will always win most of the time!  Anyway, Duke is a D1 FBS team. It isn't a surprise that Duke beat A&T because they are in a higher division than A&T. They were supposed to win the game!

I don't remember any AGGIES putting WSSU down at that time. I could be wrong, but WSSU had their chests sticking out proudly, beating that Texas team, so I just fail to see why some fans come for A&T so hard?

punchy - The HBCU is the educational, social, cultural, and economic engine for the black community of every city they are located. As a kid, I grew up watching WSSU playing other HBCUs. These games were the only place where I could see blacks supporting blacks on a somewhat large level. This inspired me to attend an HBCU. This family of HBCUs is what gave me my black consciousness. A&T betrayal is far more than just sports. They are our biggest and one of our best. The idea that they think they are too good to associate and support other black institutions is mind boggling to me.

ANALOGY – Poor black boy grows up in a single parent household. Everybody in his life is poor, but supported his growth into a man. He constantly says that when he grows up and gets rich, he would help his family and community. He grows up and become rich and then he marries a white girl that takes his money and social life. All the people that supported him are left behind.

I truly believe that most, if not all, the aggies on this forum are very good people. In fact, I hate that they think I'm talking about them instead of the institution they attended. They grew up with all their pride, black pride. Why they are supporting the decision to give back to white people all that they have accomplished is amazing to me. After more than 400 years of others telling us what to do you would think that we would want our own. To do what it took to make it work.

A betrayal…are you serious man. We changed conferences…we didn’t stop being an HBCU.

You really think AGGIES believe we are too good to support Black people or Black institutions or organizations.

We’re chilling in Aggieland with 2 weeks of live game tape for the first time in 2 years.

While we aren’t 1-1 or 2-0, our football team isn’t in dire straits. We have 2 weeks to prepare for NCCU and we won’t be a push over.

It is what it is. Our fortunes are in front of us and we control our own destiny.

We’re chilling in Aggieland with 2 weeks of live game tape for the first time in 2 years.

While we aren’t 1-1 or 2-0, our football team isn’t in dire straits. We have 2 weeks to prepare for NCCU and we won’t be a push over.

It is what it is. Our fortunes are in front of us and we control our own destiny.

No I am not crazy. I would be saying the same thing about WSSU if we lost our way. All that marching this past summer should have opened our eyes... especially the grads of HBCUs. We need to stop thinking that the only thing our schools does is to provide sports. Put down that video game and leave those girls alone. Then open your eyes and lead.

55 has a point.  The truth hurts.  Enjoy the BS and take us off your schedule.  You know, yawl with the big schools and all.

I mean if you want to cut off your nose to spite your face, then whatever.
Yep the crazy train has left the station. The bird said take them off our schedule like they were not at the table signing the same contracts we did.

We welcome playing other HBCUs…and our fellow HBCUSWant to play A&T.

Since going to the BS we signed SCSU, NCCU, WSSU, NSU…the list will get longer and longer.

There is that arrogant attitude, "We welcome playing other HBCUs."  Why would you have to welcome that?  You know that your move would be a failure without other HBCUs.  Why move out but yet lobby to continue to play other HBCUs? :shrug:  I won't be in Greensboro next Saturday, so enjoy playing your "HBCU."

NCCU and the rest of the MEAC schools remaining will survive.  A&T, Hampton, FAMU and their coattail Bethune made a strong business decision which invariably affects their bottomline.   :shrug:  We all hated long term friends to part in that manner, but it must play out in the books with stakeholders who equally love all the aforementioned institutions with true old friends hoping them the best.    Really, why hate on another families decision of moving to a new home in a new neighborhood having  wherewithal to succeed for the benefit of the family and persons next door- left behind prays for your failure.  I didn't come from that type family nor applaud those who differed.

Why wouldn't A&T want to play other HBCUs...local FCS programs, or even local FBS programs.  :shrug:

That's good for our program.

Wait, wait, what? So if playing other HBCUs is important to our success why would we not play other HBCUs...I don't recall any admin, fan, or coach stating A&T doesn't want to play HBCUs. A&T has always played HBCUs. What are y'all talking about?  :crazy:

Hey, that's on you...don't come to the game...you can watch on TV if you like. The show will go on without you. Two of the states largest HBCUs with a long standing rivalry will play football for the first time in a couple years. A resurgent NCCU will face off against a HBCU powerhouse. In the near future the game will move to Charlotte...will be sponsored and in a pro stadium. This game is bigger then you.

Good luck this week against the rams.

We haven't scheduled Shaw...A&T reduced the number of D2 schools we play years ago. As I recall, the last time we played Shaw Rod Broadway was coach. He liked to have a D2 warm up game at the start of the season...I like the idea of a warm up game (Especially seeing we are warm ups for FBS schools), but don't expect to see lots of D2 programs on our schedule.

We recently signed a 2 game deal with WSSU right? You know full well why we aren't playing any games in Winston. The rams are a D2 school and A&T is D1. We are in a higher division, and the common practice is for the lower division school to take a payout and travel to the higher division school...and that is exactly with the rams are doing.

I have no idea what any of the other BS schools would do or who they would hire.

Yes, yes, I know...we AGGIES are blind, we are helpless sheep that are being led around. We are being fooled...sellouts, and all that other stuff. Our research on the issue if flawed, we moved to quickly, we have no idea what we are doing, we have poor leadership, etc.

We will be disrespected by their fans...we are giving away our culture...we are no longer a HBCU. They are using US to destroy US.

This country is full of boogiemen and conspiracy theories right now.

You need to ask yourself what is really at the core of your A&T hate, because it is not pretty.

I'm just tired of seeing HBCUs get out coached by pwcs.  A&T held their own in the first half, but the Duke staff was studying them like they were a specimen under a microscope. They came back in the second, put the plan in place and blew them away. Is it staffing, lack of skilled staff, I don't get it. It happens most of the time when HBCUs play pwcs. We do ok in the first half but then..... :o


They weren't out coached but overly platooned through  changes on the O-Line.   That was Cutcliffe ace in the hole and he used it.   Yes A&T held their own in the first half, but those fresh bodies, coming in and out eventually showed benefit for DUKE.    Imagine running a marathon against a group of fresh interchanging  runners  every five miles as you trod alone.   Should those games be played.  IMHO, YES!  Good teams and coaches like those challenges.  It reveals, where they are, where their weaknesses are and what needs improving.   Deon knows his weaknesses at JSU and should he continue on his path will become a power too in his division.  Power 5 coaches and staffs have this saying  "out recruit".   Meaning- find the best tackles, receivers, QB's, etc in that years recruiting class and look for better ones that next year.  Capler, if you played on playgrounds as a youngster, you wanted to play with the older boys because they were  better and your game got better too from the competition of having to jump higher and run faster to keep up.  The coaches know what happened and will improve on getting it better.  Its not a lack of skilled staff but numbers when your bench is not as deep especially as the visiting team with limited numbers. NCCU played them and saw the same scenario first half vis-a-vis second half.

The scholarship differential makes all the difference in the world, especially for the second half. I do believe that we, as FCS schools, need these games, because, in addition to our kids wanting to play the games, we need the funds. Other PWC conferences do the same thing. They just so happen to win a few more games, like Jacksonville State beating Florida State in the last few seconds.

Oh I know that. They (FCS PWC) still win more FCS-FBS matchups than our HBCUs do. Of course there are more FCS PWCs than HBCU FCSs.

I agree.

Also, we keep comparing ourselves as if the playing fields have become even. The fact that we have to have HBCUs is an indication that we are working on different levels. We have always done the best with what we have. Some of us think that a little success makes us one of them...they are wrong. Our goal should be to pull ourselves up as best as possible until America is ready to give us a fair chance. None of those school would be better than us if it was not for "us" making them better.
