Sports Forum / Hmm

What if the HBCUs started gaming competition among their respective conferences or independent peers?  As an old guy I don't know much beyond Madden, but I'm sure that might pique folks' interest.  Hey why don't some of you guys start one--a step beyond fantasy football.....?

Sports Forum / Michigan Football Site Updated
« on: March 10, 2020, 05:19:56 PM »
It appears that whoever runs the site had abandoned it a few years ago. I checked recently, and it had a couple of our "new" games listed.  Just looked and apparently they have fully updated it.  I just wish they had the locations attached with the results.

I can't believe that WSSU and VSU went from 47 to 82 without playing. :o

General Discussion Forum / Worst Colleges by State
« on: December 18, 2019, 11:55:10 AM »
According to "educationalot.com many of our schools are considered the worst in their state.  The focus is on graduation rate, loan debt, loan default, and average salary after 6 years.

Making this dubious list are the following:

Alabama State, Philander Smith, Edward Waters, Grambling, Coppin (cited as the best of the worst), Mississippi Valley, Harris-Stowe, Shaw, Central State, Benedict, Lemoyn-Owen, Texas College, Virginia Union, and West Virginia State.

What say you peeps?
