 :lmao:    How many schools pick a non conference team in a fund raising effort.? Are they your yardstick?   We are what we strive to be.  Lately :shrug: :shrug:

That is working.   Despite the spirit of the times you will be seeing more and more of this from athletes.  He is going to a good school with tradition and history.

The locker facility they had, although dated, was adequate in comparison of some I have seen.   That speaks to the care the school feels about the squad and its future.  The reactions of the students reveals their pleasure.

Yes, I see, but I still mean every word of the response.   :tiptoe:  The backlash should have been painful.

Gayle, who has history with this black male thing, jumped at another opportunity to slam another one , even with the severe grief his family was going through at that time, she took that swing with impunity.  That basketball player, Leslie, looked startled.  Let us be real.  Gayle got where she is off of O.W. influence and back.  Mediocre as a commentator, but National.....  She has only connections.   I'm not a fan.   She is  just a talker.  Snoop apologized for his verbal assault- we got the picture relative to professional protocol but his original tirade hit the point of quashing that fool in her Kobe comments.  Snoop had  the intelligence  to see how simple minded Gayle was on a NATIONAL STAGE needing Oprah to help wash it out on Kobe Bryant Day.  She pooped then stepped in it, now bring it up again.   :brickwall: :dedhorse: :brickwall:

Alumni  that attended Liberty during the elder Falwell era said it was challenging for African Americans for four years.  I'm told some liked the place.  She remained and finished, but has not returned.

Boulware is a first class guy who deserves better.

Ram55 has an opinion about everything and everybody that he can answer.   Apparently he missed taking his medicine/pills.  Concentrating on WSSU issues could help but taking meds before posting may stop  his sounding like an idiot.   I believe the poster is not well.   :shrug:

 :shrug: :shrug: :shrug: :shrug: :shrug: How are you the greatest BB player and never played?   :shrug: :shrug: :shrug: :shrug:

It was the right move relative to the safety of all functionary persons making game day events possible.  Exposure of fans with possible compromised immune systems from sidelines, on the field, coaches, referees, concessionaires and custodial staff  unable to remain safely distanced IMHO was too dangerous. Covid is much worst than some are willing to admit.       
Happy it was done.  As to timing - it matters not.  Democratically done the correct way through the counsel of Chancellors/ President and AD's collectively deciding on this outcome.  As for the SWAC or BigSouth it's their decision in their lane.    :tiptoe:

Sports Forum / Re: Celebration Bowl officially canceled

Winning the MEAC is not  carte blanche due to the exodus  of FAMU and A&T.  A void yes, but not a cakewalk to the MEAC championship or Celebration Bowl with the remaining members.  You got to want it, prepare for it , with all efforts toward  seizing it.  No rubber stamped winner prior to seasons completion. I hope NCCU takes the front but with history as a monitor nothing is a given in the MEAC.  Ask Morgan State who seemed to have A&T number for some reason.  Whether  FAMU / A&T left or stayed the championship has to be WON.  That is what I like about the MEAC. Despite preseason predictions (caveat emptor) there always were spoilers who didn't buy the supposed bandwagon rhetoric.   :nono2: We will be fine without those useless sayings.

27
  So far THREE.  Hope they are better soon. I doubt we play this year.  What will  NCCU  numbers say when the team returns?  Hoping not, but probably the same boat.   :brickwall:  It's everywhere.

Sports Forum / Re: HAMPTON UNIVERSITY STATEMENT ON 2020 FALL SPORTS
« on: July 14, 2020, 05:38:19 AM »
THE conference has no choice but to abandon the season.  Inclining infection numbers across the country cannot decline with false narratives of playing within a conference only - which begs to question whether football is another type of competition within a conference  designed without down linemen, huddles, locker rooms, allowing socially distancing in conference play as opposed to non-conference?  Doesn't  make sense anyway you look at it.  I personally will not be in ANY stands this fall, even Homecoming, putting myself or my family at risk with folk not practicing  rudimentary protocols of safety.    I was told, "if you go around that crowd don't think about coming home for  14 days". TOO RISKY.  It isn't just the fans but the players, athletic staff, referees and custodial auxiliary that touch each football event potentially infectioning those they contact upon leaving  the game constantly elevating infected numbers tenfold.    In my opinion the conference only option is forgoing this season.    Wasn't posted for an argument but what IN MY MIND is the obvious outcome at this point in time featuring this WORLDWIDE PANDEMIC.  It is that serious. It will save lives. The life saved may be YOURS or SOMEONE YOU LOVE.  I would pay for live streaming on ESPN or other media outlets and stay home couching it ----HOME ALONE.

Congratulations Shane.    :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:  Missed Baseball this spring.  Matters not where you go if you have talent.  The eyes in Durham are big and watch for those skills.

Yes, that is what I hear from those knowing more than gossip.  It is happening to everybody and those large financial games will  negatively affect morale while effecting the books.  We will get through this too.  Coaches and scholarships have to be honored, i'm sure.
