The mere fact that I haven't heard whether or not he has turned the offer down makes for more drama.
I guess he's in purgatory! Must be a good feeling to be sitting in the catbird seat!

I thought Delaware State was making progress.
I definitely saw progress. He was slowly turning the corner.
i've been saying all along that he's in no hurry to leave jsu. he knows that he'll remain a "hot commodity" as long as he keeps winning at jsu and i fully expect him to keep winning.
prime will leave jsu whenever he himself see's fit, i don't see him jumping for a "low profile" colorado job. i think he'll stay put until one of the "big boys" come a callin'...
The SWAC philosophy is, "If it doesn't make money, it doesn't make sense." We leave the chasing the rabbit around the track to MEAC, CIAA and SIAC. When the dog catches the rabbit at the dog track, who gets the money, the dog or the owner?……………………………………………………………………….,…………I thought it might be helpful to the UNBIASED observer of this thread if I reposted what I stated earlier. Beyond all of the MINDLESS DRIVEL which too often drives the discussion on this board, FAMU’s playoff history should have been accorded some deference in the playoffs selection process.
Not sure about Div 2, but there is only ONE HBCU FCS school which has a DOCUMENTED history of winning playoff games. And that’s the school located on the highest of seven hills in Tallahassee.
So if THIS is the criterion which weighs most heavily with the selection committee, the Rattlers should be in almost every year…………:::RIGHT???
But, hey, FAMU getting screwed? Well, that’s perfectly fine for the school most love to hate on this board.
Anyway, I’ve said enough and, quite frankly, am sounding redundant.
So, FAMU is out of the playoffs, Jackson State “conveniently” hides behind SCG and Celebration Bowl to AVOID being tested by some of the “traditional” FCS powers, and it appears that’s just fine by folks who opine on this board.
You are right about Jackson State. They are hiding from the big boys. Deion keep making excuses while beating up on SWAC schools with less talent and resources. I love what he is doing for HBCUs, but he needs to show the world what he has or stop talking and taking bows. If he wants to be our God, then do some "God like" things like beating good schools on his level.
Coach Prime also stated we HBCUs consistently get beat in the trenches (OL) and wants to have depth at that position before we schedule those teams so we can actually beat them. Yall schedule these PWIs just to schedule them with no real game plan or depth.
In the last 10 years WSSU has played and beaten more national powers than any school in HBCU history. In fact, both HBCU DII conferences play national powers on yearly bases, and win.
Everything you just said is what schools say when they can't compete or in hiding. You are ranked in the top ten and have some of the best talent in the nation. What else do you need? Deion is wanting guaranteed wins so he only plays schools he knows he can beat. He averages 43,000 fans a game and the best facilities and coaches but yet he's scared. Maybe he doesn't want to be out coached. But even Steve Wonder can see he's hiding. Playing schools with 2,000 students with facilities worse than most Texas high schools... not God like.
We've been worshiping ya'll, so now do something. Play God.
WSSU had that success in 2012 under Maynor and I applaud you all. We do not have the same mission as WSSU or D2 schools.
JSU is still building a solid program. IMO, there is no point in playing top FCS teams if our goal is the Celebration Bowl. JSU is an underfunded HBCU in the poorest state in the union so playing PWIs (IMO), whether it be on the road or at home, does not serve us well, financially. I don't have a problem scheduling a ranked PWI for Homecoming because our attendance will be fine but playing NDSU just to say we played/beat them is asinine! We don't care about white validation...wanna know why? Because we already have the #1 recruiting class, the #1 fanbase and are ranked in the Top 5 WITHOUT scheduling PWIs.
Let Jackson State continue to reinvent what it means to be successful. Let us continue to chase the bag. We are showing Black America what can happen when you invest in/support your own. JSU doesn't need PWIs to be relevant, competitive or for validation; they need us.
You said all that to say you're not competitive on your level. A bunch of excuses. ALL sports is about winning on your level. If ya'll are okay with beating weaker schools I'm good with that.But you can't be our God doing that.You can't ask for the hearts and minds of the HBCU world being cowards. FAMU want to take on that challenge. I'm loving them for wanting to step up. For not making excuses. For not being afraid.
We played and dominated Campbell. They played and struggled with Albany State.
Don't get me wrong, I love what ya'll are doing at Jackson. I just wanted ya'll to kick some PWS arssss.
Wile^^^I’ve got an even more SALIENT question. Of what interest is ANY of this to NCCU?
If NCCU were not in the Celebration Bowl, we would have received an invite to the playoffs as an at-large. Yes we played a D2 school and a non-NCAA school. But we also went 3-1 against OOC FCS schools to include a conference champion and a playoff contender.
As far as my credentials. . I vote in the AGS poll. I follow FCS football all year and have been following for over a decade.
Here were my predictions for playoff selections:QuoteMy shot at it:
AQ-11: SDSU, Sacramento State, St Francis, Gardner-Webb, Holy Cross, Samford, EKU, Southeastern Louisiana, Davidson, Southeast Missouri St., William & Mary,
At-large: Montana State, North Dakota State, University of Incarnate Word, Weber State, Furman, New Hampshire, Richmond, Elon, UC-Davis, North Dakota, Tennessee-Martin, Fordham, Mercer
Last Four In: Mercer, North Dakota, Tennessee Martin, UC-Davis
First Four Out: Idaho, Delaware, Chattanooga, Montana
Next Four: Austin Peay, Florida A&M, Youngstown St, Rhode Island
UC-Davis @ North Dakota to #1 Sacramento State
Mercer @ Southeastern Louisiana to #8 Incarnate Word
Southeast Missouri @ UT-Martin to #4 North Dakota State
Davidson @ Elon to #5 Samford
Gardner Webb @ Furman to #2 South Dakota State
Saint Francis @ Richmond to #7 William and Mary
Eastern Kentucky @ Weber State to #3 Montana State
New Hampshire @Fordham to #6 Holy Cross
I correctly predicted 10 of the 13 at-larges, but in my next four out; you see the three at-larges that I missed. My next four out has three of the four teams that the committee claimed were in their first four out.
Back to your original question; perhaps this doesn't concern NCCU. But I'm speaking for myself and no one else. Finally, the persecution complex is tiring. . . which is why I posted. There is no grand conspiracy against FAMU.
They come off smug, half-cocked, dismissive and entitled. Then, when we have to gather their arses up and MAKE them deal with us with respect, they all of a sudden they are shooketh with fear and/or surprise.
The only way they gonna learn is if we teach them, and don't allow them to treat us any old kinda way.
BACK THEN FOR MOST OF US ATTENDING AN HBCU WAS JUST ABOUT OUR BEST AND ONLY OPPORTUNITY TO GET A COLLEGE EDUCATION. .....AND THE ABSOLUTE BEST COLLEGE FOOTBALL TALENT WAS AT HBCUs. AND ALMOST ALL BLACK FOOTBALL TALENT CAME EXCLUSIVELY FROM HBCUs. AND YOU CAN IMAGE WHAT I ENCOUNTERED BACK THEN PLAYING COLLEGE LACROSSE, EXCLUSIVELY AGAINST PWIs. TODAY, LIVING AND WORKING IN ALABAMA, I JUST LOOK ON IN WONDER WHEN I ENCOUNTER A YOUNG BLACK ATHLETE DECKED OUT IN ALABAMA, OLE MISS, CLEMSON OR AUBURN GEAR. I CAN'T HELP BUT WONDER IF THEY EVEN KNOW THE HISTORY OF HBCU SPORTS?
This is it Eagles! Hope the guys are locked in and ready to play Eagle football. I know Coach Trei has the guys focused and they will not overlook NSU. Eagle Pride will be in attendance if anyone wants to meet up.
JAG89, you do know they're trying to reopen St. Pauls in VA. I think that's a tall order for a small school that has been struggling for a very long time. I know some of their alumni are working to get reopened.
Is St Paul's College still owned by the Board of Trustees? Is it owned by the Episcopal Church?
St Augustine's University wanted to buy them at one point.
December 6, 2017
Officials in Brunswick County and the Town of Lawrenceville are in the dark concerning the future of the Saint Paul’s College campus, which was sold last week to a Chinese-backed company for $2.5 million.
The vacated campus of the Historically Black University and College in Lawrenceville was sold by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, a federal agency that took over the assets of Saint Paul’s to cover unpaid pension obligations. The buyer listed on the deed, recorded Monday, Nov. 27, is Xinhua Education Investment Corporation.
