Greetings and salutations! #issaghost
Speaking for CAU, we chose three this year because of the anticipated growth of the band. Materials had already been purchased for the DM's and whatnot, but the growth did not happen for various reasons. So to not disappoint those guys that had worked so hard, we kept them in place for this year.
JT, as far as the AUC schools building up their bands, we honestly have to worry about the infrastructure (financial aid, admissions, etc.) of the school before branching out to entities like the band, although the band is a brand ambassador for the school, but I digress. I support Morehouse (except when we play each other) so I want to see us all win. I'm tired of seeing the in-state talent going out of state, but honestly it's more cost-effective to go out of state.

I don't think we have any night games at home either. And I was just mentioning at our spring game that if nothing else, the Morehouse game should be a night game.

Let's see how I want to break this down....
1. It was midterms week in the AUC, so most professors aren't really concerned about the SIAC tournament.
2. Most of the bands have to fund their own trips to the tournament, and we honestly don't have the money to do so. We barely have enough to keep ourselves afloat.
3. As far as Miles was concerned, Prof Merriweather has been sick, so the staff has been out recruiting for next year and doing other things.
4. You have some band directors that are in concert band mode and we're trying to develop well-rounded musicians, and it's just hard if all we're going back and forth between pep band and concert band. Today's student has a hard time focusing on concert band because all they want to do is "crank", so we want to keep their focus centered, ESPECIALLY if they are on scholarship.
5. Speaking personally for CAU, our teams are not that good. *LOL* We just fired our men's coach. #justsaying

ATLANTA (JULY 7, 2015)— Looking to transform its current football program into one that consistently produces high-performing student-athletes, Clark Atlanta University (CAU) today announced a decisive shift in its approach to building what new president Ronald A. Johnson, Ph.D., intends to be a force in the SIAC that galvanizes students and alumni, and garners national attention for the University. The first building block in what will become the “Panther Powerhouse” is the July 13 arrival of Interim Head Coach Kevin Ramsey.
“Coach Ramsey is a model of excellence who has consistently demonstrated his ability to build relationships that yield the highest standard of performance on the field and off,” Johnson said. “His arrival signals a new, critical cornerstone in a strategic shift that, with the right balance of talent, coaching and training, can precipitate a long-awaited turn-around. Our goal is not simply to post a better record in one season,” Johnson noted. “We are looking to build a comprehensive program that sets a new, higher standard in player training, education and safety within the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) and across the HBCU competitive field. Suffice it to say,” Johnson noted, “that CAU is on the defense.”
JMHO, defense wasn't the problem per se. But let's see what happens.
