You knew it was coming. . from a former official in the DOE.. .

The federal government shovels hundreds of millions of dollars per year to America’s 100 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), with minimal accountability. Congress is poised to keep the shovel going full steam, and presidential candidates Bernie Sanders (Vt.) and Cory Booker (N.J.) want America to give these institutions as much as $100 billion more. While some HBCUs have modernized their operations and are succeeding, many others that are failing are lobbying for handouts — and Congress has already rewarded the worst performers with loan deferment and forgiveness. Congress should stop giving out so much free money, let failing colleges fail, and showcase the ones that successfully compete.

I can't wait.  Do it! 

This is what the American people wanted when they gave control to the GOP in Congress and in multiple states and voted in Trump.  So do it!  I can't wait till they gut social security and medicaid too.

We forget how a Fox News pundit once invoked the Obama children in a criticism of his response to Benghazi?  A play on words doesn't come anywhere near this.

Before we go throwing stones at ourselves, look at the chart.  The biggest group of defaulters is from people dropping out of school or who don't finish.  Also notice that the highest default rates are from students who've attended for-profit schools, and the two-year publics (probably community colleges).

Ironically, the top reason for African-Americans to leave school without a credential is financial struggles or an inability to balance work and school.  To reduce the number of defaulters, we need to figure out how to get these students to finish. 

20 for me.  Joined while I was teaching high school in Fayetteville.  Congrats Onnidan!  What a milestone!  Even blackplanet didn't last this long!    :lol:

I was just coming to post this thread.  Their alums and current students are pissed.   :o

An amazing movie that should garner some Oscar/golden globe nods.

Two thumbs up

Maybe it was losing two at home that did them in.

I agree that a team should be penalized for home losses and rewarded for road wins. But that “metric” if used by the committee to detract from SCSU; still doesn’t explain the picks.

Illinois State had two home blowouts against ranked teams.  This may explain why they were considered among the last four.

South Dakota State also lost two home games to ranked teams and still managed to nab a seed. 

Furman and KSU made it because they’ve been highly ranked all year and maybe because Furman was snubbed last year.   I wish the committee would just own that.

I think so. 

In the past, wins over OOC champions have been a good indicator of a berth.  It helped that Towson, Citadel, and Chattanooga all lost. 

Right now I have the playoff teams as:

Autos (10):
NDSU, Weber State, James Madison, Nicholls State, Austin Peay, Central Connecticut State, Holy Cross, San Diego, Monmouth, Wofford

At Large Locks (10):
South Dakota State, Illinois State, Northern Iowa, Villanova, Sacramento State, Montana, Montana State, Southeast Missouri State, Southeastern Louisiana, Central Arkansas

Last Four:  Kennesaw State, South Carolina State, Albany, New Hampshire
First Four Out:  Southern Illinois, Furman, North Dakota, Maine

This is dumb.

Totally agree.  If this is the mantra just have Eastern and Western conference, like the NBA.  That makes about as much sense as this proposal.

How many Eagles going to this game?  Not sure i I am going, they are calling for rain.

I won't be there for the same reason I didn't go to games in Durham. My health is not the best and it is getting worst. Also tickets are $45 for General Admission and $55 for reserved.

Been praying for you, bro.

We've got a lot of work to be done in the off-season.  I expected much better production from our offense; but I guess they never recovered from the uncertainty at QB. 

On to quiz bowl season where the Eagles (and the farmers) are national contenders this year.

If the Miller hadn't been an evil Gargamel-lite Douchebag, this case would have never gone to court.

UMass chose to have its cake and eat it too; by refusing to fully join the MAC conference. 

Not sure what you mean by acting like a city?

The rail project that was planned for the Triangle was stopped....thank God.  When Raleigh pulled out of the deal, it should have been scrapped.  The crazy folk here in Durham actually thought a light rail between Durham & Chapel Hill was a good thing  :crazy:

NCCU was one of the losers thanks to Duke (and the GA) killing the project.  It was projected to drive economic expansion along the two stops closest to campus, one of which was across from the new business school.
