I always wear my colors on Fridays.  "Make way for the maroon and gray!"

Durham County Stadium is a very nice facility. The US Track and Field Association championships were held there in June. I am proud to say that I had a granddaughter participating. The crowds for the CIAA football championship games were always higher there than they have been in Salem, Virgina. Was $2,400 too much for St Augustine to spend? I think that they would have done very well if was played in Durham.



This is what I was saying.  I am not arguing that Shaw should have continued in Durham.  One game with the Rams would have been fine for St. Aug.  St. Aug probably would have made money too.

Durham County was not that high.

You wanna bet? Plus it just wasn't the rent charge...but I'm not going backwards. It's all been noted in NUMEROUS articles about this season's situation.




Rent for a college football game is $600 hour.  For a game that should be less than $2,000.  200 people paying $10 would have taken care of that.  This game should be played in Durham.  Those Rams are going to bring over 1000 anyway.  I understand Shaw because they had to bus their Students here every week.  But 1 game should be ok for St. Aug.  But to go all the way to High Point?  :shrug:

I guess Durham County Stadium was not available? :shrug:  Y'all mad at us? :shrug:

I am shocked at this news. :o  He had an up and down career but I enjoy watching him play.  I was still confident when he was in the game.  Best wishes at Winston!

This is why they should start the impeachment process asap.  That fool in the White House is dangerous to us all.  Words have consequences.  Forget about the collusion, he is an open raciest.  If he keeps this up, there will be a race war. Impeach his tail now... :dedhorse:

Nice pics but I saw more a&t pictures than NCCU. :shrug:  This is so powerful.  Alright Triangle alumni, we need to do something like this next summer. :nod:  If we did, hate I missed it.

Not exactly the same, but A&T is spearheading an HBCU Meet & Greet at Zweli's in Durham on August 23rd.

The owner of Zweli's is an Eagle.  Man, I will be in Washington at that time.

 :no: :no: :no:  I am so sick of this conversation.  WSSU please give up the hope that A&T will do a home and home with you.  It really is not because they are scared, but because they don't do many non-conference games without getting paid.  Going to WSSU will mean that they will not get a check for that game.  Having a sell-out game every other year will help your budget more than A&T's. It will hurt the aggies when the game is not in Greensboro. 

Remember, the aggies also stop playing NCCU as well when we were div. 2.  So this is really not new. Those days are over.  If you really want to play them, look to play them in Greensboring and get paid.  If not, oh well, look forward to your schedule.  Your A.D. really needs to stop hoping for a home and home game with A&T or any div. 1 school. 

Winston went back to div.2 for financial reasons, I guess.  You had to have understood that those games with A&T were going to be affected.  It seems like you guys planned to keep the A&T game as a div. 2 school.  The aggies have the upper hand in this.  They seemed to have moved on. 

I like the way Central has scheduled an CIAA team every year since we moved up.  Looking forward to the Eagle/ram game.  But please, forget about a home and home with the aggies. :shrug:

I see the MEAC tops the attendance for HBCUs regular season.  NCCU has to find away to increase attendance.  :no:

Man those numbers are bad. I realize the arena is small but thought the average was higher than that.

Don't know what can be done  :shrug:  Lowering ticket prices isn't going to happen.  Maybe we need to advertise more



Ticket prices are not that bad.  We really do need to advertise more, encourage student section to be lively, go after church groups, school and league teams at a special price. I know scheduling is difficult, but plaything those div 3 & NAIA (I guess) simple kill fan interest.  Also alumni in the city need to understand that they need to support games other than the A&T game.
