I'm not hating, but Virginia Union reports 5-6,000 people at every one of their home games. No way!

. You are absolutely correct. It's not about where we are, but where we want to be....and we're there! WE ARE IN THE CIAA and WE WANT TO BE IN THE CIAA! There are no advantages to spending money we don't have to move up, especially to the MEAC. You talk as if being in the MEAC is a badge of honor. No one yet has come close to presenting a convincing argument to our Administration, Board of Visitors, students or alumni to support that argument, including MEAC officials. You also say that we've outgrown the CIAA, yet Bowie State and Fayetteville State have larger enrollments than we do. Why not go after them? Should we all move? Why is VSU the target?We are the only people who see moving up as something negative.You hit the nail right on the head. I know at A&T when we look at what we call peer institutions, we include schools that have achieved goals we aspire to.
No way VSU belongs in the CIAA…it’s not about where you are but where you want to be. That’s not a knock on the CIAA it’s a great conference…but VSU out grew that league years ago. You guys should have left when NSU joined the MEAC.

While I understand Bowie State University (two-time defending champion) being #1 and Fayetteville State University (three time runner-up) being #2, I don't understand how Chowan could be chosen #3 over Virginia State University and Virginia Union University when VSU and VUU had better records in 2019. Oh well, this is just a predicted order of finish...the truth will come out on the field.
Punchy, I don't think the improvements to Rogers Stadium and building baseball and softball facilities on campus had anything to do with going D1. The baseball team used to play in Colonial Heights and the softball team in Ettrick Park. the renovations to the stadium were desperately needed. as far as the MPC, the bulk of that money came from the state of VA and Chesterfield County. even with a brand new facility, attendance for games is hit and miss. People will show up for Union, Bowie, Norfolk (when they came to us), but people aren't coming to see Elizabeth City or Lincoln. the fee to move up is $1.7M. I guess the people that want to make that move, want to take the $ that was donated. where is the $ supposed to come from to fund the other 30 football scholarships to move to FCS level? to pay the additional staff needed for coaches and support staff? Scholarships for the non revenue sports? I would rather spend that donation $ on improving our academic offerings and campus facilities than to join the already in trouble MEAC just so some can puff their chest out and say my school is D1. There's a difference between D1 and HBCU D1
