Sports Forum / Not many dogs barking these days
« on: September 11, 2021, 08:20:38 AM »
For the past two years every other thread, on this forum, was about those Aggies from Greensboro. They constantly bragged about how they were levels better than the rest of the HBCU world. Now what. I here crickets coming out of Greensboro. These guys let the worst team in the ACC toy with them. Apparently beating an extremely week Kent State, or the weakest ECU ever got to their heads. Now if I come across sounding happy they got stomped  last night, it's because I  am very happy.
I'm guessing that only two or three will continue to post... but only for awhile. The so called "HBCUs Alabama", will become jokes as soon as this year. They be begging to come back to the MEAC. In three years they'll will begging to play WSSU in Winston. Just watch.


I was just reading an article about the Bowie State football them that named three of their players as being among the best in DII. I then thought about our WSSU 2011-13 football teams that made runs in the playoffs. Bowie has been getting better every year for the last seven seasons. Could this be the year an HBCU win it all? I know they will have some stiff competition in the CIAA. Even WSSU will be much better than people think. Probably not good enough in dethroning Bowie... but time will tell. What are your thoughts.

Sports Forum / Any preseason picks?
« on: August 06, 2021, 08:30:32 AM »
Who are your picks for the four HBCU conferences this coming football season. Hear are mine:

SWAC - Alabama A&M followed closely by FAMU and JSU.
MEAC - SCSU followed by NCCU and NSU
CIAA - Bowie followed at a far distance by a much better WSSU team than in 2019 and VSU. Don't forget about Shaw either, they are the
     real sleeper.
SIAC - Albany State followed in what could be a toss with them in Savanna State

I agree that the two conferences should have cancelled the fall sports or any sports until we get a vaccination for this COVID 19 virus. However, some schools were looking to have an outstanding year. I really wanted to see what Bowie State do in football having that very though schedule. They had a lot coming back and a very good recruitment class. I think they would have been national contenders. In addition, I wanted to see what my WSSU Rams, Claflin University, and about three other CIAA schools would have done in basketball on the national level. I hope that we can carry this over until next year.

Sports Forum / Headline story in the year 2035

Headlines story in the year 2035

Many former Black Colleges want to leave their PWCs to form all HBCU conferences. Something that ended ten years ago. They are citing wanting more authority in scheduling rivals, more voting power on conference awards and dwindling black student enrollments at their schools. They are also complaining about the limits the conference is putting on the halftime band performances. Bands will now have to face the home stands during halftime shows. The limits put on cheerleader’s attire and routines was a concern. Visiting school attendance at the HBCUs facilities has been far less than the attendance at the PW conference schools, leaving many to believe that many of the conferences PWS fans are raciest. The conference’s office does not have enough black employee’s.
The mostly black schools want to be able to charge more student fees because they are able to get equal sponsors as their white conference counter parts. Something the conference will not allow, making it impossible for the black schools to compete. Schools will now require students to graduate in five years or less or be fined by the conference.

Sports Forum / HBCUs should boycott A&T
« on: February 29, 2020, 07:35:20 AM »
I think that A&T's move to the Big South is such a sellout move that "ALL HBCUs" should boycott them. This is far bigger than some sport. They're saying that our sister MEAC schools ain't good enough, then want to keep playing some,just to make money to pay for them telling us to go to hell. They claim its the travel costs, but they won't travel 23 miles for a guaranteed sellout with WSSU. They also want to keep FAMU, and they are the furthest school away from their campus.
Some of you will think that it doesn't effect you, but it effects us all. We need to let them know that their are consequences for doing this move.

I'm asking all black people to boycott these fools. Even with their posts on this forum.

Sports Forum / Help me find the NC A&T huge win thread
« on: August 27, 2018, 08:06:47 AM »
I would like the congratulate NC A&T on their big win over Jacksonville State. This confirms them being a national power. I have never been so proud of a school that I don't like in my life. They got some real men on that defense. The MEAC better look out or it can get ugly for a few teams.

Great Job Aggies.  :bow:

Sports Forum / WSSU Ram fans don't be mad at me
« on: November 22, 2017, 09:26:15 AM »
I think it is time to give those dogs credit for an outstanding season and to show them my support. It is not every day that a HBCU go undefeated. As their rivals, I have been a huge critic of them. I have always said that winning affords you the right to talk smack. Right now, they deserve that right. I still do not like ya’ll and I know you don’t care.
 :bow: :clap:

Sports Forum / Bad news WSSU fans... Hurst will not be back
« on: July 31, 2017, 10:38:50 AM »
I just read that Hurst, our all world running back, will not be back this year. This could really hurt us, because this kid was really special. This leaves us with only one special back and three other good backs. But we will be okay, but not as scary on offense.

Sports Forum / Any TU fans want to bet on the WSSU game?
« on: September 18, 2015, 09:56:05 AM »
I have all the respect in the world for TU, but come Saturday, all bets are off. We are going to beat the socks off you guys.  :nod:

If any of you TU fans want to bet a friendly t-shirt or hat just send me a message. The loser will send the winner a hat or t-shirt of the losing team. I have always wanted a TU hat, so I thought this would be a "easy" way of getting one.  :lol:

Any takers?

Congratulations to Alcorn for representing HBCU. But where those are big mouth NC A&T Aggies, and NCCU Eagles. I guess sharing the conference championship, in the worst conference in American, is not enough to get any votes. That 98-3 record did not help much did it? Outside looking in is normal for you guys, so I am sure these ranking don't offend you at all.   :lmao:
