Mr. Ronald H. Gantt was a Past President of the NCCU Alumni Association and a genuine "Die Hard" Eagle. He was affectionally known in our hearts as “The Sloping Hills and Verdant Green” and the Dean of our NCCU Eagle Fans who posted our comments on the Onnidan Fan Forum. Sadly, He gained his Eternal Eagle Wings on Thursday, April 14, 2022. Professional services are entrusted to Perry J. Brown Funeral Home, Greensboro, NC @

We all in "Eagle-Land" will sadly miss him.

Rest in Peace, my friend!

HBCU Sports Fans:

If Va. State moves on to D-1 and joins the MEAC, should WSSU revisit D-1 and rejoin the MEAC with rivals NCCU and NSU?

I am very saddened to learn of the loss of Brian McCorkle. He was an extraordinary human being that touched the lives of many others who knew him or had the pleasure of meeting him. He was a great family man, Christian and NCCU Eagle Alumnus. The NCCU "Eagle" family and his Charlotte community will miss Brian,  whom he served so well. We extend our hearts and prayers to his family and friends.

Take Care!

Wow, will this move, B-CU Joining FAMU in the SWAC, force NCCU, Norfolk State, and South Carolina State into the Big South for Football and Baseball? Or will this move force Md.Eastern Shore and Coppin State to play Football with Morgan State and South Carolina State forced to play Baseball to save the MEAC? =+=

Take care!

 Hello Big Gray and the rest of the Onnidan Family!

God Bless You All and please stay safe.

Take care

Welp that ends this discussion

We are still the champions! Go Eagles!

Having a tournament champion was never the issue with NCCU fans naming themselves champs. If there is no tournament champion, then the regular season champ wins the conference by default. So whats the issue? Regardless of what some say on this forum, a little boasting and bragging is why you play the game... especially for the fans.

Go Birds!

Go Rams!
I think that you said it all very well
Thank you.

Sports Forum / Is It Time For a Coach "Moton" Court @ NCCU?
« on: March 21, 2020, 02:33:03 PM »
Is it now time to officially think about naming the Gym floor in NCCU's McDougald-McLendon Arena in honor of Coach LeVelle Moton?

I for one person's opinion, say yes. He has paid his dues for NCCU Men's Basketball.

Well, my humble opinion and argument are this, although I genuinely do respect all your views and input. If we look at the history of NCCU Basketball over the years, Coach John McLendon was Head Basketball for about 12 Years (1940-1952). He put NC College Basketball on the national map and helped to create the CIAA Tournament in 1946. Coach McLendon won the CIAA Conference Tournament twice (1946 and 1950). Before that, Coach McLendon won 4 CIAA Visitation Championships before the start of the official CIAA Tournament.  He shares his name on the McDougald-McLendon Arena building with that of a Non-Basketball Coach. 

Coach Floyd Brown was an outstanding NCC Eagles Basketball Player under Coach John McLendon. He became Head Men’s Basketball Coach after Coach McLendon resigned from NCC to coach at Hampton and Tenn. State. Coach Brown coached the Eagles for 18 years (1952 -1970) but never won the CIAA Tournament, (Even the few years when the CIAA tournament played on the campus of NCC). I think a few of his teams may have won the CIAA Southern Division regular-season championships. He never won the whole CIAA Tournament Conference Championship in 18 years.

Coach Michael Bernard was Head Men’s Basketball Coach for six years (1985-1991). He rebuilt the honor and winning tradition of NCCU Eagle Basketball that had been missing since the days of Coach Floyd Brown. Coach Bernard never won the CIAA Tournament while at NCCU. He did win an NCAA Division II Regional Championship and the NCAA Division II National Championship in 1989. I think that Coach Bernard also may have won a couple of CIAA Southern Division regular-season Championships (not sure). Still, he never won a CIAA Conference Tournament Championship.

Coach Greg Jackson became the NCCU Head Men’s Basketball Coach for nine years (1991-2000) after Coach Bernard became the coach at Norfolk State.  Coach Jackson had outstanding teams while at NCCU and never had a losing season. Although Coach Jackson won several CIAA Southern Division Regular Season Championships, he never won the CIAA Conference Tournament Championship. In 1993, Coach Jackson won an NCAA Division II Regional Championship. He made a couple of trips to the NCAA Division II Tournament. After Coach Jackson departed NCCU for Delaware State, the NCCU Men’s Basketball Program went downhill again.

Coach LeVelle Moton became the NCCU Head Basketball Coach on March 25, 2000. Since that time, (10 years) Coach Moton has rebuilt the NCCU Division I Men’s Basketball Program into national respect and recognition. Coach Moton was also an outstanding student-athlete at NCCU, who played under Coach Greg Jackson. Coach Moton is currently a member of the NCCU and CIAA Hall of Fames. As an exceptional role model and supporter within his community, Coach Moton is extraordinary. His community commissioned a City Park named in his honor in Raleigh, NC. Since becoming head coach at NCCU, Coach Moton’s teams have won 5 MEAC Championships, and gone to the NCAA Division I Basketball tournament four times and the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) 1 time. Coach Moton’s outstanding record as both a Hall of Fame Player and Outstanding Coach speaks for itself. @

If we added Coach William Burghardt to the list, he coached from 1937 – 1940. There have only been 6 out of 17 NCCU Men’s Basketball Head Coaches credited with overall winning records, in the History of NCCU Men’s Basketball, since 1927. If not mistaken, currently with ten years of service, Coach Moton ranks as the 3rd Winningest Head Basketball Coach in NCCU’s History, behind Coach Floyd Brown. So yes, Coach Moton deserves to have his “Coach M Court” named in his honor at NCCU’s McDougald-McLendon Arena.

One played offense, the other defense. Now they’re coaching that same football program.

N.C. Central coach Trei Oliver and offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach Moses Ware were college teammates in the late 1990s.

Oliver was a safety and Ware played wide receiver for the Eagles. Ware was a few years ahead of Oliver, but the two had their battles in practice. After practice on Monday NCCU practice Oliver joked that he used to destroy Ware, and Ware countered by saying he made the younger Oliver carry his pads to the locker room. Learn More @

In order to compete and meet expectations of having a first class winning Division I Women’s Basketball Program, the NCCU program must have top quality student-athletes who are able to adequately compete at that level.

NCCU Lady Eagles Basketball Has Not achieved a winning season since moving up into the Division I ranks of NCAA Women's Basketball in 2010.

In order to achieve the goals of winning and competing at high levels that win Championships, NCCU has to upgrade its student athlete's talent level. NCCU Women's Basketball must become much quicker, stronger and taller. Above average three points shooting is a must. Strong offensive and defensive Rebounding is a must. Excellent Point Guard play with depth is a must. With 4 to 10 players being cut from the current team, tells me that the current NCCU Coaching Staff must have the needed excellent student-athlete recruits and transfers coming in, who are much better, quicker, taller and stronger Division I Basketball players who have the needed skills to get the job done, ASAP!

The NCCU Lady Eagles Basketball Program MUST be completely rebuilt from the ground floor up. There is NEVER any easy way to do it. With all things considered, NOW is the best time to do it and not prolong what needs to be done to reset the NCCU Lady Eagles on very sound and solid footing to win future championships at the Division I level.

Yes, our hearts are very saddened regarding those young ladies who must be cut. However, NCCU Athletics has made the commitment to become one of the best programs in the USA. The first steps in doing those large and very unpleasant tasks are making some very hard decisions that are best for success of NCCU Lady Eagles Basketball in the long run. (Just My Very Personal Opinion)

"All five starters should return next year, a rarity for Moton, who usually welcomes in a new cast of transfers from year-to-year. =+= That’s still the case next season with former Cleveland State forward Jibri Blount, who sat out this season, and former Boston College and Saint Louis point guard, Ty Graves, added to the mix. =+= Five players who saw significant playing time as reserves should also return. And that group doesn’t include guards Alex Mills and Rashann London, two players Moton expected big contributions from this season, who suffered ACL injuries. London, who transferred from Drexel, didn’t play at all this season and Mills only played 21 minutes." =+=  Read more here:

"Typical Eagle-Aggie," NCCU head coach LeVelle Moton said. "We respect them but we don't like them and they don't like us, and I'm certainly fine with that. We knew they were trying to come in and win a championship, it was obvious. But they can't celebrate in here, we can't allow that. All week the primary objective was to just fight, this was going to be a street fight with a basketball out there." =+=

NCCU will be seeded sixth for the 2018 MEAC Tournament and will be matched up with Coppin State on Tuesday, March 6 at 6:30 p.m. at Scope Arena in Norfolk, Virginia. =+= and

If that action is true, this "Die-Hard" NCCU Eagle supports the outstanding decision from our fellow North Carolina "Arch-Rival" A&T Aggies. We support You!

WOW, Do all of the teams that play @ Hampton have to play the officials as well, or does that same to be only with NCCU?

Anyway, NCCU "Eagle Pride" Amplified is Worldwide!
