Sports Forum / Re: NC A&T's Kam Langley enters NBA Draft

He will get an assessment and get his name out there for next year. Smart move.

The income limits were appropriate. In fact I thought it could have been chopped to $75k max. What I thought missing was more to address student loan debt. Neymar's is a good example of what it's going to soon cost this nation. There are a lot of young professionals and college educated folks with the same dilemma. Can't buy a house because of student debt while being forced to use a more expensive rental market.

Cuomo needs to be the Democrats nominee for president instead of Biden or Sanders.

Lol, advice to my Onnidan family. Perhaps we should have taken our cue from the resident snakes. They didn't seem to be excited about the "major announcement" so why did some of you guys start worrying and/or coming up with wild guesses?

Met him at the driving range. He acted as if he had known me his whole life. Don't come any nicer than him. RIP.

What else can be the reason why you don't play a sure sell-out? :shrug:  Then they want to complain about not having enough money for travel. :shrug:  Now they are banking on playing NCCU every year. :shrug:  Sorry, we are playing WSSU!  :tongue2:  Enjoy your new conference aggies. ::)


You will very likely be joining us in the next year or so. That's why I'm gonna save some of these threads.   ;D


You make me sick because what you normally say comes to pass.  :dedhorse: :dedhorse:

Who knows eagle pride? One thing is for sure the birds moving to a conference with it's core in Va, NC, and SC makes a lot of sense. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if Norfolk is thinking about it.

If Central and Norfolk joined the Big South you would get A&T, Hampton, and Norfolk locked in as conference games. Out of conference you could play anyone you wanted...FBS money games, regional PWIs, and HBCU rivals...the reduction in travel expenses would be real that's for sure.



I know but I still don't like it.  Wonder why the Big South is all of a sudden interested in HBCUs?

The state of N.C. put a good deal of money into A&T over the passed few years.  Look like they are now putting more money into NCCU.  Is the state pressuring A&T and NCCU to join the big south to attract more white students, and justify the money put into them?  Was the big south the conference selected, because they will take anyone, and most the members are really looking for a new conference home? 

I cannot see how the money saved on travel will make-up for the money lost on attendance.  I have seen the amount of money A&T plans to save on travel, but I have not seen the estimated amount of money they expect to lose in attendance.   When the University of Maryland moved to the Big Ten, all these numbers were provided when the announcement was made.

One thing the move to the big south does is it reduces A&T’s footprint in the black community.  I would guess in a few years, black high school students in the DMV may not know that A&T is a HBCU.

Attendance will be unaffected by this move.

But wayaminut.....didn’t you show up on her doorstep unannounced?

You may want to rethink your strategy. If you let her come visit, maybe you can get your nuts out of pawn....instead of spanking the monkey to a gif of her feet....





Stop it!!!

Eagles I can guarantee you one thing....regardless of what conference we're in we will hate you just as much as we ever have!

Screen Rant is not a reliable site for geek news.They've been known to poach articles .

To far out for this be in play. Everyone is wondering who the main villain will be.Us nerds are hoping its Namor- the Sub Mariner




I believe they dropped subtle hints of Namor in End Game.

I wonder if the Eagles would have feltbthst way had they lost last night's game.

Felt what way?
There’s been only one Eagle that I see calling for boycott of a&t. Hell I want to beat them even worse now is the way I see it.

Personally think a&t will feel some financial pain when folk don’t show for their conference schedule.

What makes you think there will be a drop off? Hampton didn't experience a drop off and I doubt if we will either.

Personally I'm glad it's gone and hope it stays in Bmore or elsewhere.
