#3 Kansas 74

Other than ya'll who really cares.

Lol, you took the time to read and respond.  :snicker

Ms. Decks bought me one yesterday. Said there was no long line at the Popeye's she went to.

Anyways hard to give it a review because it was so friggin spicy I could barely eat it.

Jah Maine Martin doesn't get enough carrie's in A&T's offense.

Sports Forum / Re: HBCU Attendance: Week 10..
« on: November 04, 2019, 09:49:38 PM »
Why the focus on our attendance when we are generally top 5 amongst HBCU's? Season to date we're averaging 18,141 which I believe at this moment is tops in the MEAC. Anyways here's a ten year look back on our attendance ranking amongst HBCU's. Not too shabby when you consider there are 9 football playing HBCU's in this state. Who else has that much competition for the same dollars? 

2018 - #5
2017 - #3
2016 - #4
2015 - #4
2014 - #2 (trailed SU)
2013 - #3
2012 - #8
2011 - #6
2010 - #5
2009 - #1

Beto put the final nails in his coffin when he talked about stripping away tax exempt status for churches, charities and colleges that oppose same sex marriage.

Sports Forum / Re: Rude welcome for Tigers in SIAC preseason poll

I stand by what I have been saying. The preseason ranking was a joke. I never thought that SSU would not finish at or near the top. Had I been a betting man I would have picked up a lot of dollars.
It was a joke, and the joke ended up on those voters.

Lazy voters who didn't do their research. For those of us paying attention you could see SSU turning the corner last season. Although not always reflective in the final score SSU gave the MEAC best teams all they could handle last year. Beat Charleston Southern and should have beaten SC State! If SSU had remained in the MEAC they wee going to be trouble for the rest of the conference.

Trump is correct but as usual is over simplifying the issue. There needs to be more focus on prevention however cutting funding will only make things worse. In fact CA already have programs in place to remove dead brush but the job is so massive it's impossible to get done. I think they have something like 600,000 acres of woodlands with dead brush but only have enough resources and manpower to clean 35,000 acres. In addition they will have to look at moving and burying power lines away from heavily wooded areas. This isn't a problem that just started. This speaks to decades of forestry and wildfire mismanagement. Throw in climate changes and it will probably take billions to address this issue.

Good riddance.

Not funny!   :snicker

Lol, that was probably the last time they will ever schedule TU. Nothing better than winning and getting paid for it.   :clap:

This is a 10-15 year look down the road. A move anytime before then would be unwise.

Personally I like being a big fish in a little pond.

I can see A&T in the same conference as App. State and potentially High Point University. The pond that you are currently in is very little... much like a cup of water. Being National Champs of just 18 HBCUs is nothing to really brag about. If ya'll move up I would support you. I bet so would every HBCU in the state of North Carolina. You would be a big fish in an ocean.

I wasn't ust referring to HBCU's. I meant being a big fish in the FCS pond.
You got to play in the FCS playoffs and win the FCS title if you want to be that. The Meac & Swac champion plays in the Celebration Bowl.
That has 1000% higher tv ratings and payout. You know sorta like an FBS school bowl game.
I wasn't talking to you. I was responding to Decks about being an FCS powerhouse when they don't even play in the FCS playoffs. You can't call yourself an "FCS Powerhouse" when you don't play the top FCS teams when the games matter!

I'm calling bullchit on that. Of course we can be considered a powerhouse without participating in the FCS playoffs! 

Why? This makes little sense.  :shrug:

Everyone knows they have "unofficial" quotas to fulfill.

Wrong to do this at a funeral but it was funny.  ;D

The brother who performed the diss is a friend of mine and I am not at all surprised he would do something like this. Hopefully it will not affect his business in a negative way.
