I do not know  any numbers , but this was our home game!!!!
Each school got 150k.

That is not entirely accurate. There was a revenue split with the home team getting a bigger share. 150k is was a base with a scale on top.

I recall some grumbling among the Aggie faithful about the uneven split. 

They probably had close to 2 million in ticket sales.  I hope both schools brought home at least 500K-750K.

Yeah, there was some grumbling...NCA&T sold a lot more tickets than NCCU but the AD said the issue would be addressed. It's not a problem when we home and home, but at a natural site it's an issue. A lot of folk wanted more of a CB set up where both schools get a base payout...then an additional payout based on what you sell through your ticket office.



a&t crowd was not noticeably larger than NCCU.  They may have sold more tickets probably because they are a larger school.  :shrug:  How is it a problem when you guys signed the contract and now want more money? :shrug:  That aggie pride show seems crazy at times.  :no:

The A&T crowd was not noticeably larger  :no: I don't know what game you was at. That's about like saying the A&T band wasn't noticeably larger. Nobody wants more money "now"...I don't know what you talking about. Folks grumbled about it well before the game was played. That's all water under the bridge now, we several weeks into the season. Our AD heard the concerns and said the situation was being addressed. Aggies and eagles will have to go at it in other sports until next football season.

Y’all do know that the game in 2027 will be A&T’s game and they get a larger share right? The things y’all say on this here board is head scratching.
It’s bigger than that eaglewing…no matter who’s “home” game it is. It’s a neutral site…and the majority of the tickets sold was from Aggies…and some wanted a larger share of the pie. Folk gonna say that until central sell more tickets.

I don’t like either…I could grow into the new person, but Maddow I never liked. It’s like she wears the same outfit every night…no make up, same hair. She got to spice things up or something are all her clothes black ?

Walker denies abortion claim, then is attacked by son

https://www.yahoo.com/gma/herschel-walker-denies-report-reimbursed-041100289.html

Herschel Walker, a Georgia football icon and U.S. Senate hopeful, has denied a report in the Daily Beast that an ex-girlfriend claimed he paid the cost of her abortion more than 10 years ago, a claim that would seem to contradict his anti-abortion posture on the campaign trail.

Walker, a Republican, immediately denied the claim and promised to file a defamation lawsuit against the Daily Beast, which published the story, on Tuesday morning. Walker later appeared on Fox News Channel's "Hannity," where he issued additional denials.

"I can tell you right now, I never asked anyone to get an abortion," Walker told Sean Hannity. "I never paid for an abortion -- it's a lie."

The Daily Beast reported Monday that an unidentified woman who claimed to be Walker's ex-girlfriend said she sought a medical abortion after the couple conceived in 2009. The woman shared documentation with the news outlet: a receipt from an abortion clinic, a bank deposit receipt with an image of a $700 check that appeared to be signed by Walker sent within a week of the abortion and a "get well" card that appeared to be signed by Walker.


Yeah, I never told her to do that...she did it on her own. I never paid for an abortion, she just said she needed some money so I gave it to her.

Just own your mistakes man. If you got a girl pregnant and she had an abortion and you was OK with it, and years later after maturing you no longer want a woman to get the procedure just say that. Changing your mind about something is one thing...lying about it is another. What is it they always say, it's not the crime...it's the cover up that gets ya.

This party embraces cretins of all walks of life just to try to get power. Plain and simple.

I'm reluctant to refer to anyone as a cretin. However, there is nothing in Herschel Walker's background that suggests he is worthy of being a United States Senator. I will say that this is proof that the Republican party has no respect for the intellect of its voters.

If they have killed off T'Challa, and it appears they have I will pass on it.

I can feel ya on that Decks. I'm not happy about this at all !

This sums things up perfectly for me ! I'm no Lizzo fan, but the outrage for these racist just warms my heart. I mean damn, who cares if she plays an old flute?

They looked like a FBS team
Announcers said they have the #1 recruiting class in all of FCS

Will wake to see what they can do against JSU

Yep, the did have the #1 recruiting class...and their coach has them playing very well. JSU had a top class as well, it will be a very interesting gam. HBCUs can get the talent needed to win. We got to figure out how to get coaches and administrators like this in our programs and give them what they need to win.



"We’re going to change the mindset of the football players," Minter said at his introductory press conference. "They are going to learn that it is no longer acceptable to be mediocre. We are going to create smart and tough football payers, players that can get after it in the fourth quarter."

Minter, a former Carolina Panthers safety, joins Campbell after coaching special teams this past season at Liberty University. Prior to Liberty, Minter was an assistant coach at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte.


His record is 39 - 54 in nine seasons.

How does a coach with that record recruit the best class in FCS?
They definitely looked like it, but how does that happen?

They put money in their program.

And how does he recruit them to play in buies creek? 

They've made Buies Creek more appealing than Durham.  Which isn't hard to do.

Man, you got Durham, Raleigh and Chapel Hill in one sweet triangle. Where in the HELL is Buies Creek? I never even HEARD of that town until I found out that some of our HBCUs will be playing them this season! So how would Buies Creek be more appealing than Durham?  :shrug:

They probably market Buies Creek as suburban and outside of Raleigh, NC the state's capital...and Buies Creek is not diverse either and that could be a selling point for some...
^^^THIS^^^

It’s a short drive from the triangle. Bottom line is they want the same athletes and students we do…and they willing spend what is needed to compete.

Next year they will have A&T, Elon, and UNCW as in state conference rivals…and have a FCS NCCU right up the street as well. So we all gonna have to deal with them.

The Aggies won 2 straight at home with their 24-13 win over Bryant. They have two winnable games and a bye before their game with Campbell.

We got some things to clean up for sure, but the team is getting better each week. This is a good time to have the bye week...to enhance our strengths and work our our weaknesses. This team is playing much better than when they faced nccu.

Sooooo, wonder what type of conversation he is having with his cartwheeling twirling son?

 :popcorn:
I was thinking the same thing. He needs to leave that topic alone…I’m sure his gay son ain’t campaigning for him in Georgia…hell, are any of his kids on camera or in a campaign ad saying “That’s my dad, and you should vote for him”?

Howard University is the only hbcu ranked among the top 100 universities in the country and is less than 2% white. There is no such thing as white magic   eventually they will steal your stuff and you become HISTORICALLY black but now run by white. I said time and time again you are integrating in a burning house. We have lost seats in congress and next year we will decrease opportunities to vote. Yet we still salivate for white acceptance. This is crazy  have your alumni give a nickel a day to the university that's over a million right there. We need to cut out this foolishness. This is 2020 not 1820. You can't chase white folks for freedom

Ken, what da hell are you talking about..."white magic"..."chasing white folk for freedom". NCA&T is the "Blackest" of all 5 public HBCUs in North Carolina. Nobody is looking for white acceptance. Just asking how the other 4 UNC System HBCUs balance their non black enrollment with their tradition and culture as HBCUs.
