According to local news outlet WDAM 7 News, 100 protesters gathered on the University of Southern Mississippi campus to support the two women who were attacked. The protesters were made aware of the incident after one of the victims took to Facebook to vent her frustration. In one post, the women said fans called her derogatory racial terms. Then, outraged fans threw beers and sodas at the two women.

This is sure to have an impact on our attendance.

You guys don't have Thursday night high school football games?

An Open Letter to the New York Times’ Joe Nocera

Mr. Nocera, I’ve long enjoyed your work for the Times, and find the range of topics you tend to explore as interesting as the conclusions you tend to draw about them.

However, I had a significantly different experience when I read your September 18 exploration of HBCU football entitled “Historically Black Schools Pay the Price for a Football Paycheck.” While your work was fair and well-researched, with hindsight being 20-20, I do wish you’d considered adding the perspectives of HBCU Football journalists and industry professionals to the mix of individuals cited in the report.  I’m aware there are deadlines to be met, and at some point the report has to be filed to demanding editors; however, in this case, all-too-important viewpoints were left omitted, leaving me with a prevailing, and ominous sense of your reading of the issue.  That occasionally misanthropic reading stokes an ever-present mindset among some HBCU alumni and supporters—a perennial crowing for a discontinuation of HBCU engagement in “money games” (and often, to discontinue competing versus predominately white institutions (PWI) writ large) that smacks to me of a return to a Jim Crow-ing of HBCU Football.  This mindset is not only a culturally retrograde notion, but it runs counter to the cultural, philosophical, and economic missions of HBCU institutions across the country, and to one that legendary Coach Eddie Robinson shared many decades ago—that the pageantry, tradition, and culture of HBCU Football should be shared with the entire world.

2016 SWAC Predictions / Re: Week #6 SWAC Predictions
« on: October 05, 2016, 09:07:02 AM »
Bluedog, Are you keeping tally on the poster wins like Jaimac or you just posting games? But my picks are

Alabama State
Alcorn to spoil A&M's Homecoming
Montana (Poor Coach Comegy)


No I'm  not keeping tally that's why it's title predictions and not picks. Maybe next year since there isn't one on the Onnidan forum

BUT feel free to pick thats what they areally doing on the hbcusports forum too.

So when will the ban be lifted?   Seems like it's been there for awhile now.

It was lifted than reinstated because the new numbers didn't not meet ncaa requirements.  Which really wasn't a surprise considering they give us a flat ZERO for the years that they were unable to find any usable data.

Hopefully everything will be back on track next fall.

Wasn't re-instated.  The All-Sports ban was lifted.  This is an APR sanction separate (but related) from the All-Sports ban.

I am not so sure we will be eligible next fall either.  The "0" scores don't roll off until next academic year.

Yeah you're right I stand corrected. Yeah that ZERO didn't do us any favors it might have been better if they left it a 450 or whatever it was.

Man those brothers from a&t were like wtf!!!  :lmao:

If SU is the SWAC West representative in the SCG,
 the SWAC East representative will automatically go to the Celebration Bowl.

....even if the Jags DEFEAT the East SWAC representative?   :shrug:




Come on Jay you're usually to date on things..  Post-season ban.......remember?

7467
Go Southern

 :lol:  Do they have an smiley face finger?

It has already been confirmed with the SWAC office. If SU is the SWAC West representative in the SCG, the SWAC East representative will automatically go to the Celebration Bowl.

Being how weak the SWAC eastern division is right now the odds of the meac winning it's second CB is overwhelming.

Just an FYI nothing more.....nothing less

Not trying to bring shade but, in a 20,000 stadium that was less than half full; I can't see how they came up with 14,000 fans as official. I saw that game on TV and it never got no more than 1/3 full.

They do teach math at WSSU.

Go Rams!

You might want to re-enroll because 14,400 would = 2/3 of the stadium was full.

My point was that the stadium was more than half full,
so less than the 14,000 announced. You can make-up any number you want but any blind man could see that the stadium was never more than half full[/b] Maybe you need some better classes.

  :shrug: Okay I give...... you just confused the hell out of me.

A&T should give away 5,000 tickets to people that have never been to a game.


 :lmao:   Y'all  killing me this morning.  Just  how are they going to figure that one out?

You can find 5,000 people that are part of your normal fan base.  Give then to clear people.   :popcorn:

STOP!!!!! :lmao:
