Please, please hear me. Or do I have to draw ya'll a picture. The only reason the BS invited our two schools is because they needed saving and got desperately enough to invite "two" HBCUs. Why do you think it took more than 100 years for this to happen. Do you really think America has changed enough to consider us their equals... especially in education institution's. Really? Folks's, America don't think we are their equals. Both A&T and Hampton had better start practicing their "I'm sorry for leaving" speeches' and hope that it works. Just because they married the white girl does not mean that the white girls family and friends approve. THEY DIDN'T.
Well I guess the CAA wants Hampton to marry their white girl!
The writing has been on the wall for a minute. The Five MEAC schools with the largest enrollments all explored options because the MEAC could not provide the additional revenue necessary to advance its brand and become competitive outside the conference. FAMU, Hampton and NCAT did what they had to do. Hampton is one of three private D1 HBCU's the CAA makes sense because they want to be good in athletics and need the basketball revenue to make it all happen.
