All politics is local.  School Boards really have a lot of power. 

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

That was donations and scholarships right?  I hope that wasn't the 'team' payout.  I recall someone saying the team payout was $500K each.


BTW, last year's Classic generated 48 million and 20-something in direct spending.

I think they played two games last year

The Charlotte Sports Foundation (CSF) in partnership with the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority (CRVA) released the results of the economic impact study for the 2021 Duke’s Mayo Classic Games that occurred over Labor Day weekend. The two games featuring App State vs ECU (9/2) and Georgia vs Clemson (9/4) had an estimated economic impact of 48.8 million dollars for the Charlotte region. The two games also resulted in $26.2 million in direct visitor spending and $1.47 million in Mecklenburg County sales and hospitality taxes

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.

Unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant who evaluated Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa fired over 'several mistakes,' source says

Marcel Louis-Jacques

MIAMI -- The unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant involved in clearing Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa during Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills has been fired after it was found he made "several mistakes" in his evaluation, a league source told ESPN.

The source said the NFL Players Association exercised its right to dismiss the consultant. The NFLPA and the league each have the right to fire a UNC without agreement from the other party.

It's important to teach in the community.  We have to build values and a culture that will value our people.
