I attended the game & FVSU actually put up some fight. There DLine DOMINATED our OLine! Our OLine are fat and out of shape. They will be fine after their murderer's row of a schedule early on. Porter is trying to build something and if the administration supports him FVSU can have something to be proud of.
According to Facebook FVSU inks 3 ***star class of 2017 DE BJ Sharpe out of Southwest High Macon Ga!! Big get for the Cats. The foundation is being laid and 1/3 of the big 3 in the SIAC is getting restless and about to wake up from a decade long of sleep and take its rightful place at the top of the SIAC! Coach Porter LIKE THE OLD COACH PORTER is doing work!
on display at beautiful Wildcat Stadium today. This is an awesome opportunity to show off the nice facilities(stadium ) and campus of 2016 SIAC Champs THE Fort Valley State University Wildcats to prospects and potential Wildcats. Good Coach just gotta recruit talent. Make us happy Feb 1st National Signing Day.

...on Jan 14 2017 two weeks before national signing day! In the words of the old Guineas Beer commercial "BRILLIANT"!! FINALLY somebody on the corner of both State College & Carver Drives are thinking outside the box to get talent on campus!
He did something tonight that I have NEVER seen another FVSU Coach do. Tonight he was front and center himself on the sidelines of a high school football final four playoff game at Peach County High. Guess what Peach County is the where FVSU resides Go figure that. TO those who don't know. Peach is one of the powerhouses in High School football in GA. Right in the Valley's backyard.
Porter will succeed at FVSU because he gets it. A new day is here. MY only fear is can FVSU keep him long enough to restablish us
A program builder. Coach Porter's words can now have substance behind it, whether in some prospects living room in February, or at a practice field on a hot muggy summer afternoon in August when a player doesn't wanna run that last rep to perfection!! Go Big Blue!!
FVSU vs Miles if Ft Valley brings a nice crowd, something FVSU is known for traveling very well. Will they be invited back? I hope they would because FVSU and Miles has been an attractive game until the division break up. Some nice exposure for the Valley in the Labor Day classic. IMO
If Miles band is anything like this year and the BMMB has not improved size wise it's gonna be ugly ! Why Miles is not in this Honda BOB is beyond me . Clearly they are the very best the SIAC has to offer. They can hold their own any of the MEAC/SWAC bands in size and musicianship this side other than SU or perhaps Bethune imo.

This camp is ABSOLUTELY a hidden gem!! Shots out to Tyrone Poole a 14yr NFL vet & Ken Irvin 12yr NFL vet, these guys put their heart & soul into this DB camp @ Grady Stadium in Atlanta on Saturday. I recommend this defensive back camp to any middle school or high school defensive back because you will learn the tricks of the trade to take you further in your craft whether you have offers or just trying to get better or just wanna have fun... I promise, you WILL get better!! At this camp were kids already with offers from major D1 schools like UGA, Auburn , & Ohio State all learning from an 14yr NFL vet & FVSU alum Tyrone Poole. Great camp!! I am glad my son attended!

Another Recruitment & exposure opportunity missed. FVSU could be the showcase band every year in that festival all of those high school bands in Macon marching in that parade could be recruited by the BMMB. The Wildcats would get all the attention. That's cheap and easy recruiting right there. Macon is what 15 minutes from Fort Valley? gee whiz

:read:Here me out, loll!! As crazy as it sounds give me Horford, Millsap,Caroll,Teague, & Korver, over Bosh, Wade,Birdman,Chalmers,&Haslem in my opinion. Hey Lebron constantly states that he loves San Antonio's style of play & in previous interviews he said that the Hawks are the "San Antonio" of the Eastern Conference. In a game where the Hawks kicked Miami's butt Lebron complimeted the Hawks on how the moved the ball. Coach Budenholzer sat on the bench beside Gregg Poppovich for 15yrs as one his top lieutenants. Atlanta is great place to live for young black rich people. I know i am dreaming but why can't the ATL be a viable option. Good young roster that doesn't have the big egoes that will defer to Lebron & blay big roles. Big Al Horford is a beast when healthy. I'll take him & Millsap over Bosh. As Horford & Millsap are All Stars. Lebron wouldn't have to carry the Hawks becuz he'd have a great supporting cast & an offensive system that will allow him to stay fresh for the rest of his career. Ask Duncan, Ginobli, & Parker, about this system. The San Antonio Way & now the Hawks Way will prolong your career. Hmmm, one can only dream though
In an era where funds are at an all time low. I'd like to know how a very small school like Talledega is able to field such a powerful & large up & coming marching band that is able to go toe to toe with the upper echelon of bands especially the SWAC bands & sometimes outdo them? Where is the money coming from ? FVSU & The Blue Machine need to go to Talledega, AL to interview Talledega's President & Director of bands to see how such a small college that doesn't even have a football team is doing it. Maybe they're using that money for band instead !lol Just curious to know so the Blue Machine which I am sure comes from a larger school which means a much larger alumni pool I am guessing. Yet our band program is basically on life support & almost none existent! Let's go see how Talledega is doing it .
The collective subjugation of African Americans is made easier through the collaboration of its Misleadership Class, which purports to speak for The Race as a whole while following its own, venal agenda. A great irony of the Age of Obama is that “both the Black poor and the Black elite have been left with nothing but ‘Yes We Can’ buttons and worthless empty symbolism.”
Class and the Politics of the Black Community in the Obama Age
by Pascal Robert
"The large majority of the Negroes who have put on the finishing touches of our best colleges are all but worthless in the development of their people." – Carter G. Woodson, Harvard trained historian and creator of Black History Month.
Due to the importance of depicting Black Americans as a permanent underclass in the function of capitalism in this country, people outside the Black community are generally oblivious to the existence of the class distinctions that have wreaked havoc among Blacks from the earliest points of American history.
When contemplating the sophistication of the oppression required to keep Blacks collectively in check and totally unable to topple the system built on their subjugation, the importance of the Black collaborator to maintaining this same economic system becomes more obvious. One of the most effective ways to ensure that collaboration has been creating classes of Blacks who through either their proximity to the White power structure, skills attained navigating that morally bankrupt system, or educational attainment, maintained such a desire to excel in the very paradigm that was destroying their brothers and sister in race that they would act in ways intentionally, or often unintentionally, that sabotaged the very well being of other Blacks who had not obtained their class distinction. The irony of this reality is that usually those Blacks who are blessed with the skills to be the most effective collaborators to Black subjugation are the ones who have been largely controlling Black political discourse for over a century.
“The Black poor and working class were sold a bill of goods in this president based on credentials appealing to the Black petite-bourgeois.”
One may ask what makes this particularly distinctive in the case of the Black community since the elite, or upper classes, of every society are the ones who control their respective political discourse. The answer to that question lies in the very problem caused by the initial public perception that all Blacks function as one community in some greater “underclass minority.” Since broader society makes no distinction as to the various levels of Black American class structure, the notion of an elite segment within the Black community acting to the detriment of the larger segment becomes lost. Hence, when MSNBC has Black Phds discussing the plight of the Black poor and Obama’s policies relative to them, most Americans take that Black person as an authentic representative of Black aspiration without realizing that particular Black Phd is vested in better serving the presidential administration that is generally damaging the Black community as opposed to actually representing the interests of the Black poor. Hence, the class dynamics of the Black community, working behind the shadows of America’s racist social structure, allows an educated cadre of Blacks to work their best at assuring the viability of the White power structure, while being chosen as the legitimate representatives of the Black poor and working class that are being destroyed by that same power structure.
These dynamics are particularly damaging to the larger Black community when the face of the White power structure vested in Black subjugation is a charming tall Black man with a beautiful wife that fulfills all the vapid aspirational self serving desires and fantasies of those well trained Black collaborators. This is the reality of the Obama age.
“The most effective collaborators to Black subjugation are the ones who have been largely controlling Black political discourse for over a century.”
From the beginning, the Black poor and working class were sold a bill of goods in this president based on credentials appealing to the Black petite-bourgeois. Obama’s Ivy League education and sterling credentials from through the liberal foundation world of Chicago, had no real resonance to poor Blacks living in a world of de-industrializion, neo-liberal privatization, and mass incarceration. But because those credentials were given light through the prism of the pedigreed Blacks who make up the same vacuous circles of “Public Intellectuals,” Talk Show Celebrities, and the Black Misleadership class, the Black poor and working class were pitched top down an image of the new Black savior who was the “the one” Black people had been waiting for. Hence, the craven petite bourgeois Black professional desire to both validate their presence in the hostile White working world, and vindicate all the abuses they received in that world, would be consummated in an Obama presidency. The Black working class and poor were conned into buying the hustle.
Obama’s presidency comes to life as the creation of Madison Avenue marketing, Wall Street Financing, and Ivy League propaganda. The Grass roots bona fides of this president as “community organizer” were completely exaggerated if not concocted to dupe Black working class and poor. Meanwhile, pimping out symbolism of a noble Black Freedom Struggle to dupe the Black poor into supporting a Black elite political fantasy was key to electing Wall Street’s Perfect Manchurian Candidate. This, when the browning of America and the limits of finance capitalism required Blacks to be neutralized to ensure wealth transfer upward.
In the end, both the Black poor and the Black elite have been left with nothing but "Yes We Can" buttons and worthless empty symbolism. At the same time. the Voting RIghts Act has been gutted, the Black/White wealth gap increases, Black unemployment continues unabated, and now Historically Black Colleges and Universities are being eviscerated by the same “one,” Barack Obama, that Black people supported with over 95% of their votes. This is how the age old trajectory of the Black Educated elite controlling the political reality of the Black community has ended, with the deepest abyss of Black socio-political status since the death of Dr. King.
Hope and Change, indeed.

Attended the Battle of the Bands yesterday @ Mercer's Anderson Stadium in Macon Ga. Turn out was huge as FVSU & ASU were featured. Which brings me to question why can't ASU & FVSU have these type of events on their OWN campuses? Wildcat Stadium & ASU stadium is just as big & nice as Mercer's . Yet all those black folk turned out in mass on a PDW school campus. Macon's EMA had to turn folks away due to fire concerns .Money$$ & Exposure were missed by these two schools. Heck they could alternate campuses every other year & make that money for themselves & keep it fresh for the area bcuz it'll be in South Ga (ASU)1yr & Central Ga (FVSU)the next year! Just market the dang event & people will show up!! Like they did last nite on Mercer's campus. Us black folk can't keep crying broke & not find creative ideas to make money. Earn folk's money. To ASU & FVSU we gotta SCRATCH each other's Back!!We both should look good TOGETHER!! Sometimes we curse ourselves. I'll get off my soap box now. Lol!!!
