Sports Forum / HBCU Alums in Your Call Football League
« on: February 26, 2019, 10:06:46 AM »
Your Call Football is the league that debuted last year where fans can watch the game and pick plays for the offense to run through an app. You win money if you score higher than other players. I played it a couple times last year and it was pretty fun.

I counted 5 guys from HBCUs on the rosters

https://yourcallfootball.com/football/team-roster/

Team Power

CB - CJ Moore (NCCU)
LB - Reggie Hunter (NCCU)


Team Grit

WR - Chris Hubert (Fayetteville State)
CB - Qua Cox (Jackson State)
CB - Jacques Bryant (FAMU)

The way his teams underperformed at LSU (2012-17), I don't know if as he's as a good of coach as Mike Davis is but he definitely has a good track record dating back to his time at LSU as an assistant early in his career

I’ve been checking out this podcast recently called 1.Question. They talk to different athletic admins around the country about different issues related to their schools.

They’ve done a few with HBCU guests.


Ingrid Wicker McCree - NCCU AD

Jacqie McWilliams - CIAA Commissioner

Sherie Gordon - Albany State AD

Gordon’s was pretty interesting considering she got hired right as the consolidation with Darton State was going on.

Grambling men's basketball team just beat Georgia Tech 64-63, GT couldn't corral a loose rebound and accidentally tipped it in. Grambling was up by as much as 16

Good win!

Hampton is gone, we already knew SSU was out, what should the MEAC do next?

Jordan Parks (slight edge over KJ)
CJ Wilkerson
Jeremy Ingram
Poobie Champman


What would your 5 for your school be?

Figured I'd start this thread since rumors of Coach's departure have popped up every year (except last year) since 2013. I hope he stays, but who knows...

I've heard rumors of NC State ( :shrug: )

Then today ESPN's Jeff Goodman tweeted

Sports Forum / Was NCCU's win over A&T the biggest in school history?
« on: November 23, 2016, 05:30:56 PM »
What do yall think?

We debated this topic on the HBCU Voice podcast (8:45 mark)

I said the 1989 D2 National Championship win was bigger win, but I know there are other Eagle alums or HBCU supporters who may say otherwise.

Other topics:

  • Our predictions of how the SWAC West will end up
  • How D2 HBCUs fared in the playoffs
  • NC A&T vs Richmond
  • A shoutout to Old Dell Beckham Joe Thomas Sr from SC State

This is a great story! Did any of the SC State supporters on the forum know about this?

I've read/posted on this forum for nearly 10 years and still don't know it. What is the correct pronunciation of Onnidan?
