I see the saints winning the Super Bowl.

Dear God in Heaven, I hope not!

I'll just say this: these athletes need to learn to leave these little random THOTS alone. Because at the end of the day, they're no good for them and eventually something like this is bound to happen.
Did you read the article?

I already knew about the woman using the n word. There’s a lot more I want to say about this but it’s politically incorrect to defend a man who hits a woman so I’ll quit while I’m ahead. I will say though that the coverage of Hunt here in Kansas City is very biased and it’s infuriating to listen to.

Leave my Chancellor alone.

It's Baltimore or bust!

Baltimore is bust if Royal Farms Arena is the best they got.

Not overly surprised VUU got beat.  They were a good team but not a great team when I saw them against Bluefield St.  Hopefully this will help them refocus. Congrats Claflin. :clap:

I’m sure VUU will be just fine. They beat us by at least 20 last time we played them and they probably just weren’t focused this time. Wont have to worry about that happening again. Coach Whit deserves a lot of credit too. For years our women have played horribly in big games and since she’s taken over the program that’s definitely changing.

Welp, I’m glad I still have a few more years to enjoy the tournament in its current form before they screw it up.

See:
http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/25471482/sec-commissioner-greg-sankey-says-ucf-knights-fix-strength-schedule-issue

He needs to be calling out teams in his own conference. I've lost count how many lightweights SEC teams play.  :shrug: ::)

If and when USF beats LSU this year, what will the SEC commissioner say about that? That would be two strait years that they would have beaten a so call SEC power. Georgia had just lost their last game and claimed they should be in the playoffs, and this commissioner had nothing say to them. He should have told them they had their chance. They had just proved that they were not the best team in the country... no question. Let someone else try.

Bowls don’t mean anything anymore. If you’re not in the playoffs, your best players don’t even bother to play in bowls nowadays if they’re considering leaving for the draft. UCF lost its last shred of credibility with me when it declared itself national champion....  ::)

But if you play in the toughest football conference in the country, why would you need to play a tough non conference schedule?  :shrug:

I’m not saying every team in the SEC is a title contender, but I would put ANY two loss SEC team over an undefeated and mostly untested UCF squad without hesitation. This isn’t college basketball. Playoff spots are more limited and we shouldn’t be rewarding teams that can only say they beat a bunch of cupcakes all season.

Beating an Auburn team that, frankly, didn’t want to be there in last years CFA Bowl is not sufficient proof that UCF can actually play with the big boys.

Awesome did the Men play as well?

Yes, the men also won their game against VUU. For what it’s worth, the VUU men and women are defending conference tournament champs. Our men have to continue to figure themselves out. They’ve had some trouble closing out close games and they haven’t managed a road win all season. Still, a great night for the orange and maroon!

With all due respect to the MEAC, if SC State isn’t particularly competitive there these days then what sense does moving to a presumably more competitive conference make?


Competitive in football? OR are we talking ALL sports?.

Also, its not a given that D2 will allow them to be any more 'competitive' than they already are. I know thats the 'notion' but it isn't necessarily so...in SCSU's case...or is it?


I was mostly talking about football and basketball.

And while I agree that going DII doesn’t automatically make them more competitive, their main objective would be to save money and if they can win more games in the process then that would be an added bonus. That’s my assumption anyway. But if I’m being honest, I think SC State would do fairly well in the SIAC for sure in football and probably basketball too. I just have a hunch. It would also be cool to see a rivalry eventually form with Benedict.

Why are we assuming that these 'rumblings of SCSU leaving the MEAC' means that they are also moving to D2? I'm not saying that they aren't but is it also possible that they may move to another FCS conference? Truth be told, they may not be going ANYWHERE. But, I'm just asking the question for conversation sake.  :popcorn:

I think these "rumblings" are as a result of the financial problems SCSU had in the past. They could very well be moving laterally to the Big South, Southern, or CAA conference, or even the Southland.
Personally, I hope it's just that. Rumblings. I want them to stay in the MEAC.

With all due respect to the MEAC, if SC State isn’t particularly competitive there these days then what sense does moving to a presumably more competitive conference make?

I feel you...BUT....just because you survived the past issues....sometimes you need to examine the reasons that put you in that situation. 

There are a lot of proud alumni of closed schools too. 

I don't think it would be a sense of failure if they dropped down.  It would be a sense of good business to drop down.  It would be better for SCSU to make those decisions than for Ethan, Amber and the Governor to make it for them. IJS. Of course that's if this is a issue anyways.

If you guys can afford it...well more power to you.  The savings of dropping to D2 is significant.  The average D2 budget is $3.3M with football and $2.3 without.

Trust me we’re in agreement. I’ve said here before that I believe most of our DI schools would be better off as DII. I just don’t think they’ll do it until someone forces their hand. I applaud Savannah State and WSSU because I know not too many other schools would swallow their pride and move back down.

SC State going DII is something I’ll have to see to believe. For the sake of conversation though I think they would be a better fit in the SIAC because of their emphasis on football. If they drop down to DII it’s a safe bet that Claflin will play them in everything twice a year anyway and I really can’t think of any other reason for them to want to join the CIAA.

The SIAC would give them some close trips to Benedict, Paine, and Savannah State, but traveling to other SIAC East schools (i.e. Fort Valley and Albany State) would actually be longer trips then them traveling to CIAA South schools. Then the cross over games in the SIAC West would on average be further trips then playing CIAA North schools (plus the CIAA North schools practically mirror the territory SC State is already used to traveling in the MEAC).

Fair points but SC State just doesn't feel like a CIAA school to me. To be honest, I don't think SC State is going to go DII. Lord knows I've been wrong on these boards before, but I just don't see it. If they held out through the school almost closing their doors a few years ago, why the sudden change of heart now that things are starting to stabilize? Sure, it would probably save them a little money, but I know there's a whole lot of "pride" in their athletic programs and admitting defeat isn't something I see them doing unless it's being forced on them.

ORANGEBURG, S.C. – Ashley Fields scored five points down the stretch and Deja Dickens fired in a career-high 24 points as the Claflin University Lady Panthers knocked off nationally ranked Virginia Union, 62-59, Thursday (Dec. 6) at Tullis Arena.
 
With the win, Claflin improved to 4-1 in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) and 6-4 overall.
 
Fields, who scored the Lady Panthers last five points, finished the game with a double-double of 15 points, 12 in the second half, and 10 rebounds.
 
Also scoring in double-figures for Claflin was Dashia Jackson with 14 points.
 
For the game, the Lady Panthers knocked down 10 three-pointers with Dickens contributing leading six to tie a career best. She previously had six in a 21-point performance against Shaw University (Nov. 24).

Shareka McNeill led Virginia Union with 19 points.
 
In the fourth quarter, the lead changed hand several times until Shakarri Mack put Claflin up for good at 57-56 with 1:41 left. The Lady Panthers held off Virginia Union down the stretch by scoring five of the last eight points.

Virginia Union increased its lead to 42-33 at the 2:33 mark, only to see the Lady Panthers pull to within 42-41 by the end the end of the quarter.
 
"It was a great win for our program," head coach Revonda Whitely said.  "Our ladies played tough and willed the win.  Virginia Union is a great program and I am a big fan of Coach Gilbert."  Whitley continued, "What she does with her team and program is exceptional, so to win against that caliber of a team is definitely a huge win for the Claflin Women's Basketball Program."
 
In the opening quarter, Fields tip-in tied the contest at 7-7 with 4:53 showing on the clock. That would be the only points scored by the Lady Panthers until Dickens hit a three-pointer with 30 seconds left in the quarter.

Claflin hit four three-pointers in the quarter and outscored Virginia Union 18-12.
