As long as they don't lose control of their organization. Not sure what the funds are for.

Don't buy their parents any new sheets.

^^^Sloping and JBROB, thanks to both of you bruthas for this thread topic.  :clap:

Similarly to my Rattlers, imho, the ‘98 and ‘99 seasons represented the apex of TSU football. There have been SOME shining moments in the last five years or so for Rattler football. But, sadly, TSU has been pretty much on a rapid descent into mediocrity over the last 20 years.

Btw, JBROB, a quick note about that ‘99 second round playoffs game between TSU/A&T. That game was played at Titans Stadium, and I was present. For those who may remember, Leon Murray, one of the long line of great TSU QB’s, was hit in the knee in about game 10 of the season against Western Ky. One of Western’s negro goons intentionally speared dude in the knee in a BLATANT late hit.  LC Cole, TSU’s head coach, was damn near in tears he was so furious about that late hit. It ended Murray’s collegiate career and possibly a pro one as well.

TSU’s backup - the boy’s name eludes me right now - was injured in, I believe, the last game of the season against Austin Peay. So by the time that ‘99 first round game was played, TSU   was down to its 3rd QB. So that A&T victory was premised on what I just laid out. I realize that many of the “pups” may not like what I’m saying, but those are just the FACTS!!

 ;D

We are familiar with playing with a third string quarterback. It's tough.

JBROB,

I remember in 2016 A&T was unbeaten in MEAC action coming into the last game of the season at NCCU.  The aggies were down to their 3rd string QB.  The EAGLE DEFENSE ate him for lunch.  The problem was your QB was not playing defense.  A&T led the conference in rushing defense and #2 in the nation in rushing defense.  NCCU had 293 yards rushing and 184 yards passing that afternoon.  You all could not stop Malcolm Bell all afternoon.

I still have nightmares about Malcolm Bell. Make sure he doesn't try to register for anymore classes.

If 5 stars start enrolling at HBCUs will the NBA change their eligibility rules?

After defections, Coppin State and UMES sticking with MEAC, but Morgan State remains quiet

North Carolina A&T, Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman left the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference recently, but two other Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the state said they are staying put and the conference’s commissioner expressed confidence in the league’s viability.

“I’d like to put their concerns at rest simply because we are a vibrant conference with a tremendous history and an even brighter future,” Dennis E. Thomas said Tuesday morning. “We are celebrating our 50th anniversary, and we are excited about that because there’s been some truly phenomenal and talented coaches and student-athletes.”

...

But Morgan State, the largest of the three HBCUs in Maryland and the only one of the three that sponsors football and men’s and women’s basketball, referred inquiries to the league’s media relations office.

Buildings at HBCUs will probably be renamed!

Plans can be made but our country has to learn how to sacrifice.  College sports should be sacrificed until we understand this virus.

From Nov 2015

A vintage 28-yard run by Cohen in the first quarter where he weaved in and out of traffic making multiple would-be tacklers miss created the historic moment. In 32 games played, he broke Mike Mayhew's record of 3,521 yards set in 2012. Like Mayhew, Cohen wears No. 28 and like Mayhew, Cohen broke the record on a nationally-televised ESPNU broadcast from Aggie Stadium.

Cohen now has 3,623 career yards, and with one year of eligibility remaining he needs 1,049 yards to break S.C. State running back William Ford's MEAC rushing record.

“It's an honor to have a record like this considering all of the great running backs who came before me,” said Cohen. “This school has produced some great running backs like Maurice Smith, Maurice Hicks and the guy's record who I broke today Mike Mayhew.”

As a 10th grader at Bunn High School, Cohen didn't seem like the likely candidate to have more collegiate rushing yards than former NFL pros from A&T like Hicks, Smith and Michael Basnight and George Ragsdale. Or that he would have more yards than the great running backs of the early 90's like James White and Barry Turner who share the running duties as teammates.

This kid is good and so was Cohen. But the one I really liked was a kid by the name of Maurice (something or other). I can't remember his last name. :shrug:

Maurice Hicks?

They are different running backs. I'm not sure if the NFL will give Jah-Maine a chance to play. Cohen is a very unique back with specific skills. There are not many backs with his skill set.

Hopefully Virginia State can be an associate member of the MEAC for baseball.
:lmao: You got way too much time on your hands.

The MEAC needs a baseball team.
Virginia State University needs a conference.

Looks like a no-brainer to me.

Facts. But can a school be D2 in all other sports and be D1 in baseball? If so, then this IS a no-brainer!
From what I hear, you can do it for one sport.

Any sport or certain sports? I can’t see this happening in say football or basketball. Maybe in some low to non revenue sports.

I'm trying to find the policy. But you make a lot of sense. Are all sports created equal.
