But if Hampton never finds success in the major sports then wouldn’t that just further support the narrative that HBCU’s can’t truly compete with PWI’s?

On the flip side, I could see this serving as a deterrent to other HBCU’s thinking about leaving their conferences. If this becomes a trend it’ll be the beginning of the end of HBCU culture, mark my words.
Right because you know.....because one black person steals supports the assumption every black person is a Thief.  Smh.....

I'll let somebody else explain to you. Just how ridiculously absurd what you just said really is.

I’m not quite following your comment.

Sports Forum / Re: BEC wants UConn back - but what to do about FB

I actually detest the way these D-I conferences have been formed and re-formed in the last decade.

Memphis is dang near half across the country, and they are being talked about as being a candidate for the ATLANTIC Coast Conference. Louisville is already there. That is wack. Notre Dame is there...BOOTY. Wichita State and Temple are in the same conference. :shrug: :crazy: Navy is in the  Western Division of the AAC located on the EASTERN Seaboard...When has the state of Texas been considered the Southeast? Since Texas A&M decided to go there I guess. ::)...And don't get me STARTED on West Virginia going to the BIG 12...HOT garbage. And Maryland's lame brained over to the Big 10.... Chile please.

I hate this mess. Part of the reason why my viewership of major college sports has declined big time in the last couple of decades. They have been screwing up local and intra-regional rivalries across the country and in my humble opinion, it sucks.

I haven’t found any evidence to suggest the ACC is giving any consideration to adding Memphis. I think BisonBlu was just making a suggestion.

The summer of 2020 will bring change for more than UConn. I would hope that the ACC takes a strong consideration about adding UCONN and another school in the mid-west like Memphis.

I think UCONN would be a decent choice for the ACC but Memphis adds no real value other than saying you have a school that’s “kinda” in Tennessee. Memphis isn’t particularly strong on the academic side (to the best of my knowledge) and they’re average at best in football and basketball. Add to that the fact that Memphis is a tiny television market so you wouldn’t even be adding that many new viewers to the new ACC network.

This is just a red herring. The Rays want to stay in Tampa because it’s a big market with lots of TV sets but they desperately need a new stadium.

Didn’t see it but what did he say?


Molly Qerim, the host, tried to get the show back on the track after Ball began directing the show, saying “LaVar, can I switch gears with you because I have a question here.”

“You can switch gears with me anytime,” Ball responded during the live interview, prompting outcry on social media.



 :shrug:

What is wrong with what he said?  People are too damn sensitive these days.

If the man is married then it’s inappropriate.

Ball is known as a blowhard and a troll. His shtick as well. They  wanted him to clown LeBron and the Lakers and got a dose of  misogyny as well. ESPN should have known better.

ESPN only cares about ratings these days. Their programming in general is trash compared to what it was 10-15 years ago but apparently most millennials (myself not included) love it. They keep inviting LaVar on because he gives great sound bites that can be played over and over again. That doesn’t excuse the actions of a grown married man. I get where you’re coming from but no one provoked him to make those particular comments. He did that on his own.

8
First Take knew his history and still brought him in to d his troll routine. They're not completely in the clear.

I like Lavar for the most part, but your take on this sounds pretty close to victim blaming. Ultimately LaVar’s grown a-- deserves 100% of the blame for the comments that he chose to make. And am I missing something? Isn’t he still married to that clear woman???

So I guess he’s learned nothing from the first a** whooping karma gave him. SMH.

I know it’s some pissed off AD’s somewhere that JUST got their floor redone.

The SEC should have done this years ago but better late than never, I guess. You’re never going to get fans excited to go to Shreveport. Especially if their team is hovering around 6 wins on the season. Now Vegas is another story. I don’t care if my school loses every game that year. I ain’t turning down an excuse to go to Vegas. Way to go, SEC!

If I’m a Shaw alum, I’m not all that excited about playing on my rival’s field, on my rival’s campus, with my rival’s colors all over the place. Not saying I’d be any more excited to play all my home games in Durham either though. No shade towards Shaw, but if my school had to go through all this for football I’d rather just do without. I’m already not a fan of playing games at noon in the heat in front of half empty stands. IDK. Maybe my opinion is tainted since my school doesn't have a team.

Is he related to Snoop Dogg ?

If he is, it would have to be by marriage because bro looks nothing like Uncle Snoop.

Congrats Tigers!  :clap:
