Look for the ncaa to try and limit sideline and lockeroom access after this episode.

I love seeing the tar heels lose. Congrats Clemson!!
I don't generally make resolutions but I'm going to make an exception this year.
I am putting my mobile phone down while driving. That means no texting, no fumbling with playlist, no looking up espn scores, no changing Pandora stations, no google searches, etc.

Ok, my turn to try and inject some sense into this debate.
In late 2014 Espn Events approached the MEAC and SWAC with the proposal of forming a bowl game between the respective conference champions. This game would be for the purpose of declaring an HBCU national champion. Initially the MEAC said no and countered with the second place team as they did not want to forfeit their AQ to the FCS playoffs. ESPN didn't budge as they needed a champion vs champion format to make it an HBCU national championship game. This was the only model they would accept.
In March 2015 the Council of Presidents from both conferences approved and ratified the proposal for sending their conference champion to the Celebration Bowl with the winner being declared HBCU national champion.
I can understand HBCU's outside of these conferences having a problem with the Celebration Bowl being declared a national championship game, however if you are part of the MEAC or SWAC you are bound by the rules and terms of the Celebration Bowl becuase this is what your Council of Presidents agreed upon. Therefore FAMU can not declare themselves as hbcu national champions because it goes outside of what they agreed to follow 2015.
Celebration Bowl history: How did it start?
The Celebration Bowl was introduced in 2015 as a postseason matchup between the conference champions from the MEAC and SWAC, serving as the HBCU championship. It is the only current college football bowl game played between two FCS programs.

To be completely honest, A&T played with a third string QB against Richmond.
That was 2016. Richmod was very good at that time. One of our few losses to a PWI. Today would likely be a very different outcome.
I don't remember there being an NFL game on TV at the same time as the Celebration Bowl in the past.
I figured all of the above would have an effect on the numbers plus folks may be getting tired of seeing the same two teams.
In the end we can't call this a success or failure because we don't know what the target was for ABC.

Franklin Graham is a clown and his religion is joke.
So disappointed how he has turned into a politician. He used to speak at my church every year but we stopped allowing him after his wrongful criticism of President Obama.

What most people fail to realize is that Willie Simmons holds a degree in Marketing. He pushes and promote his product. He sells his athletes and stakeholders on his program. Those newspaper headlines were done inhouse. Yes, he does have something to celebrate. He's turned around a fledgling program inside of 2 years and restored a sense of pride in these student that they have witnessed since many were in middle school. Too, he's laying the groundwork for the upcoming 2020 season in building the season ticket and donor base. I ain' mad about what he's doing. I think that it's a smart move when your building your business to be successful. That's my $0.02...
I ain't mad at him either. If the situation were reversed I'd want A&T to do the same. Plus he's helping build hype for next years game. Marketing genius indeed because he's got all the attention on his program.
