@Bluedog. This game won’t be even close. If we lose to these clowns , I will wear a Trump Hat to GHOE for the next 5 years and give away free food at my tailgate. Then I will stop my annual funds to A&T and switch my money over to NCCU for 5 years. I might even double up on the amount.

Yo tailgate on the strip or inside the game zone? asking for my drunken stomach  :lmao:

This is big.

I also read that A&T was very close to becoming an R1 university. This puts them in position to outgrow the Big South when it comes to prestige in only a few years. Only three schools in our state have the R1 status Duke, UNC and NC State. Most R1 schools are in the Power Five like conferences. Now I hate that A&T is moving to the Big South because that was a sellout for a conference that was not better than the MEAC. Them being a R1 school should mean that they have bigger fish to fry than the Big South. I'm not talking ACC, but in the same conference as App. State or East Carolina I would not object too.

When it comes to basketball the Big South is better than the MEAC.

Not for black students its not better.

Prove it.

Go ask your Republican friends we is their proof.

Politics has nothing to do with the Big South being historically better than the MEAC in basketball.  That conference's entry is always ranked higher.  Truth hurts.

You said they were better than the MEAC and I said not for the black students. People don't attend sporting events just because their teams are better on the courts. They attend because the games are better for what they want to see. I would rather watch a WSSU game than to go across town to watch Wake Forest. Sure Wake is better on the court, but they are not better for me. Watching the Big South schools are not better for A&T fans than watching MEAC schools. Their school might be having some identity problems, but not their fans.

Reading is Fundamental.  I said the Big South is better in basketball than the MEAC.  Everything you stated is just your opinion.  There are those who would rather see Wake Forest than your school.  Too bad you have no clue that everyone doesn't think like you. 

Your major problem is A&T fans come to see A&T play.  Not the other school.  Too bad you don't understand that.  It's not that hard.

Again you are wrong. A&T fans come to see both A&T and the opponents. That's why some games draw more than others. Do you honestly think that their fans would show up to watch a game FSU the same as they would for a game with NCCU? Their fans don't care about the Big South schools.

This is the reason they are wanting to play WSSU all of a sudden. They want somebody that can fill their stadium. Most of the remaining MEAC schools are probably telling them to get lost... with the exception of NCCU.

Whole lot of assuming going on here.

This BOT meeting is our normal quarterly meeting, not an emergency meeting like some of the other institutions. I don't foresee a decision being made at this meeting nor do I see NCCU leaving the MEAC in the immediate future. I think you got us for at least another 2 years.



IF (just iF) NCCU were to announce after June 30, 2020 that they were leaving for another conference, they would then be required to play the 2020-21 & 2021-22 seasons in the MEAC before dipping out.

At least 2 years.......check lol
Oh stop being petty. You know damn well that isn't going to happen. Lol

Good article in Tallahassee Newspaper

https://www.tallahassee.com/story/sports/college/famu/2020/02/07/famu-rival-n-c-a-t-leave-meac-2021/4679521002/

Tyrone McGriff knows all too well about the logistics of money matters with athletics. The former FAMU football player now serves as the athletics director at Florida High School.

He expressed sadness about the loss of league rivalry games with the Aggies. However, McGriff wants FAMU to position itself for athletic sustainability – even if it means parting ways with the MEAC.

"NCAT has been a valued rival of FAMU for years. The two institutions both have rich athletic legacies and an even more profound mark on African-American culture. Seeing them leave the MEAC is bittersweet because of our long-lasting relationship, but maybe needed," he said.

"HBCUs have to evolve with the current trends in intercollegiate athletics. Conference alignment is pivotal in program growth and development. I hope our administrators look at the current moves taking place and consider joining a conference more reasonable for us in travel and for revenue-generating."

Wrong. I guess he have learned nothing from the age of Donald Trump and his supporters (Big South). Black Colleges need to stick together more now than ever. Every time one of us say we need to diversify, the closer we are to not existing. This "Make America Great Again" country can't wait to close our schools. Our needs still exist as they have more than 150 years ago. What needs to change is how we spend our money and knowing who we really are. If our costs are too high we need to move down... not move over.

But if you insist on justifying a dumb concept in moving, then do so. Just leave the rest of us alone. This will be my last post directed at those clowns in Greensboro.

GOOD BY!

That bold part......is kinda exactly what we're doing.......whew lawd

You can't be serious.

Yes I see four more possible defections to the Big South, for the same reasons Hampton and A&T joined.

We're using the conference (which is basically us) as an excuse to defect for lower travel costs instead of having the balls to change our own conference.  If four more possibly defect, then why don't those same four advocate to expel the southern teams?  Aren't the southern teams the problem? 

I like and have a great deal of respect for FAMU and BCU and consider FAMU a flagship within the conference.  But if the southern schools are the problem, why is everyone considering the easy way out?  There is no solution to solve this problem, unless we can recruit more southern teams.  It is what it is.

The truth of the matter hurts....because we are HBCUs.....

With A&T leaving, will they pull out of some games like HIU?

No, we made our transition announcement correctly whereas Hampton did not give the conference enough time.
