It seems like basketball is picking up som steam as Prairie View knock off North Texas last night. A few more games like this through out the land and the conference RPI may get a bump. 

Sports Forum / Howard Homecoming

So, in what many may consider to have been the best Howard Homecoming in almost two decades.  The Bison some how squandered an opportunity to capture a much needed win.  I'm not saying that change in needed, however I think that depth may need to be address because taking a loss to this FAMU team is nothing to joke about.

Has anyone taken notice to the fact that the Bears were picked to finish last in the MEAC and they have once again positioned themselves for a top three finish. 

On the Sidelines and In The Stands / Band Funding
« on: March 12, 2013, 09:22:30 PM »
I realize that there is a huge difference in the amount of band members of MEAC schools as you move from south to north.  What is band funding like? Why is it that the schools with the larger student bodies have the smaller bands?

From the Tailgate to the Concession Stand / Tailgate party...

Okay, I'm looking for advise as to how my friends and I should organize a tailgate party for an upcoming classic game this fall.  So far everyone is game and it is local for those willing to help host.  We have a great budget and the game has a late afternoon start.  So those of you who have done this before please help?

Sick of highly paid teachers? Here's what to do
By Valerie Strauss

Here’s a post from an unknown author that has become popular with teachers on Facebook. It speaks for itself.

Teachers’ hefty salaries are driving up taxes, and they only work 9 or 10 months a year!

It’s time we put things in perspective and pay them for what they do - babysit! We can get that for less than minimum wage.

That’s right. Let’s give them $3 an hour and only the hours they worked; not any of that silly planning time, or any time they spend before or after school. That would be $19.50 a day (7:45 to 3:00 PM with 45 min. off for lunch and plan-- that equals 6 1/2 hours).

Each parent should pay $19.50 a day for these teachers to baby-sit their children. Now how many students do they teach in a day...maybe 30? So that’s $19.50 x 30 = $585 a day.

However, remember they only work 180 days a year!!! I am not going to pay them for any vacations.


That’s $585 X 180= $105,300 per year. (Hold on! My calculator needs new batteries).

What about those special education teachers and the ones with Master’s degrees? Well, we could pay them minimum wage ($7.75), and just to be fair, round it off to $8.00 an hour. That would be $8 X 6 1/2 hours X 30 children X 180 days = $280,800 per year.
Wait a minute -- there’s something wrong here! There sure is!

The average teacher’s salary (nationwide) is $50,000. $50,000/180 days
= $277.77/per day/30 students=$9.25/6.5 hours = $1.42 per hour per student--a very inexpensive baby-sitter and they even EDUCATE your kids!) WHAT A DEAL!!!!

On the Sidelines and In The Stands / Band Camp?

Does anyone know of any HBCU's that host band camps and are the successful?

On the Sidelines and In The Stands / The Band

As we know at football games the band is a big part of the culture.  And sometimes it is THE SHOW.  But what do you feel makes either your band or any band that you've seen special.
