Very interesting choices with three who have worked in the department at one time or another.   

A&T not messing with that. And SCSU will join the SWAC if they were to leave the MEAC.

So, it's not about "travel" huh...

that's all...   :tiptoe:

The conference will stretch from South Carolina to Maine,,,,,,,,,,,but Harvey says they will be playing local colleges,,,,,,I'm wondering what Hampton's football schedule will look like this fall?

The CAA now has 13 FB playing members. They will play in divisions. This thing is not over and the will add at least one more FB playing member by Fall 2023 if not 2022. The make up will look very similar to what the BigEast looked like before it split to make the AAC.

Jerry Rice has been out of the NFL and now it's just hit him that he wants to coach.

Sounds like someone is green with envy
???…..envious of whom and for what reason?

This is the same man who had mad that Terrell Owens caught a pass that helped his team win a game.

Please, please hear me. Or do I have to draw ya'll a picture. The only reason the BS invited our two schools is because they needed saving and got desperately enough to invite "two" HBCUs. Why do you think it took more than 100 years for this to happen. Do you really think America has changed enough to consider us their equals... especially in education institution's. Really? Folks's, America don't think we are their equals. Both A&T and Hampton had better start practicing their "I'm sorry for leaving" speeches' and hope that it works. Just because they married the white girl does not mean that the white girls family and friends approve. THEY DIDN'T.

Well I guess the CAA wants Hampton to marry their white girl!  :o :popcorn:

The writing has been on the wall for a minute. The Five MEAC schools with the largest enrollments all explored options because the MEAC could not provide the additional revenue necessary to advance its brand and become competitive outside the conference. FAMU, Hampton and NCAT did what they had to do.  Hampton is one of three private D1 HBCU's the CAA makes sense because they want to be good in athletics and need the basketball revenue to make it all happen.

Hampton could’ve returned to the MEAC.  Travel constraints have been eased, but the lure of white folk ice is colder is powerful to some Black people.
Bruh they're talking about leaving a conference where they couldn't finish any higher than 4th. To join a conference where they probably won't finish any higher than 11th. Please don't anybody come in here trying to defend  this with that lame basketball narrative.

The basketball narrative might be lame,,,,,,,,,,,,,but the CAA is better than the BSC in basketball.
And your point is what exactly? Now all of a sudden Hampton is a power house mid-major?  They will be the doormats of that conference in every sport

The CAA conference continues to get more NCAA Basketball shares to distribute to its members as their teams have advanced past the first round on several occasions. This money and national relevance is what matters.  Hampton will be competitive within the CAA in the same sports that saw success in the MEAC; MBB, WBB and Track. They will be between 3-5th each year in those sports and will have to find a way to build up the remaining sports. Football will be the toughest battle of all.

I hope that Flores gets an opportunity at the Vikings HC job. Culley or Jim Caldwell should go to the Giants.

It makes more sense for UMES and Coppin State to start up football than taking a start-up football playing school from the mid-west. This is crazy and preposterous.  :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

It’s great to see these debates and everyone finally acknowledging that we want the MEAC to survive as a conference no matter who’s represented. The MEAC expanded several times since UMES dropped football. The problem is that since then founding members and those same expansion members have found other landing spots.

UMES will not add football since their athletic department is not state funded. The start up cost alone would be double their current department budget.

THIS should have been done DECADES ago. UMES [Maryland State] has a serious football team back in the 70's. I know Coppin State had football at one time years ago. I feel like the MEAC should have replaced them years ago.

The CIAA is definitely doing it right. If they can add a few more schools they will definitely be a premier D2 league across the board.

And there were actually some fools asking for Tomlin to catch the axe.

I think for most of us. To see Jerry Rice on the college sideline as a HC anywhere else other than Valley would be sad sight. And we can all agree that they finally have the right coach at the helm now.

That’s dope.

Jerry Rice as an athletic administrator seems much more realistic of a sell to me.
