All schools and conferences are in uncharted territory.  Some will regroup making changes befitting the circumstances and and others will wallow as elated doomsday advocates.  Its a glass half full or glass half empty outlook.   ;) ;) ;D ;D ;) ;)

'MOI'   WOW this is amazing.   Your thirst for trifling trills hoping I assuage past pains of lost leaps (what-which ever) may need serious looking into from those trained in that area.  I have several MD's in my family but for physical maladies only which probably won't fit your need.   You need not worry about every move others (conferences) make  with calls for boycotting games and refusal to play as punishment for leaving your perceived status quo of what all HBCU's should imagine themselves based on your mindset of growth that you consider successful.   Look, schools eliminating programs are in NEED OF CONSULTANTS, one of which is in YOUR lane.  If they dismissed your suggestions which upsets your psyche, CHILL.  If you are currently on meds, take the PILL.   No shame.  These post are opinions. It's not this serious.  After the sermon I heard online today.   God Bless You. :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

Correct.  Bill HAYES was fined by Leon Kerry for the church moniker relative to the  CIAA        :lol:                It was spoken in jest by him IMO but offended Kerry.  I attended that game and appalled at the low turnout for Shaw U,  and the attendance was factual not a put down.  I must add when Shaw play NCCU at NCCU they show up.   Now what happens with the CIAA is their business and that was a long time ago.  I'd have to look up who won what in the last year being far removed in not attending what was once an annual ritual, the CIAA tournament.  The only contacts are  this board.   Typically we play SAU or Shaw, which really isn't a rivalry but a friendly get-together of  neighborly fans from local schools and a good payday for both.  Behind the scenes, NCCU will do whatever it can for both institutions in any manner because of close relationships with  staff at each school.        :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:  I forgot that moniker.     :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:  Read it again,  2014   :nod: :nod:  but told the truth. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:2014 :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:  You made my day    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

The amazing thing is when you step back and view new opportunities, why not be positive.  The conference, despite those leaving ,remain abundant with growing Carnegie level institutions remaining targets of PWC in invitations.  We will be fine and surely rebuild despite this potholes of surprises facing  the commissioner  this past quarter.  What worries me more is this pandemic (Covid 19 )

I don't know where this "looking down at the CIAA" came from excepting a few on this board.  Never heard it at NCCU excepting when person say "we are all in the same boat"  NO   "We are all the same"  YES,        Programs have to maintain certain sports to remain as members unless an associate member.  Some CIAA members say they don't want be in a conference that is drowning (MEAC)   GOOD.    Don't worry , there are only one or two schools capable of making that leap.  There is nothing wrong with D2 if that is your aspiration in assemblage of institutions in a conference of comparable  academic , research and athletic ambitions including growth in programs and enrollment.  Those aforementioned are foundations all conferences aspire when courting new members.  [/b]NCCU has been courted by PWI.   We have faith in ourselves collectively  producing and achieving and  pulling up our own bootstraps.   If you miss the jist then okay.  Some understand and others hate.   If  A&T FAMU BCU and HU moving to a new neighborhood make you feel put down.  Sorry  to the bottom of a heart as can be as to the CIAA and its choices since there is no dog of mine in those fights.   I'll remain in my lane.  Hoping all reach their highest ambitions and highest potential.  If having an inferiority complex about anythings happening  on another campus causing 55 posts, its YOU not your institution.

I make contribution to our band.  However, I don't pay all that money we pay on gameday to watch them perform since I'm typically out getting refreshments before and during the half.  Bands are valued by many including those who travel to the Battle of Bands etc.  Some like NASCAR and will sit all day looking at cars go around and around the oval.  Good there are those who like different things, however, establishing an athletic program at my school with funding a large band first, hoping to create a large following and not the teams is putting the cart before the horse.  Winning programs, especially football will work best for all and the rest will follow. Nothing against the band which has quality sound and performed well when I've seen them  but lack in numbers for a HBCU the size of NCCU but since I have been associated that has been the norm excepting the Ammons era which was probably the best.  They had more money.  Not against a band at all, excepting rebuilding our football team, like an incoming tide, will raise all boats in the bay including the band.  That is just MHO.  Y'all can fuss about it, all you want.  Most who fuss, don't even make contributions,   :bow:

I don't give a dayum about who got this or that type band.  Winning the game, not the half time is what fans want.  Get me a team and the resulting lift of winning  will create the auxiliaries of game day.  If losing, ain't nobody gonna pay $$$$$ to watch a band.

Definitely gonna take a wait and see approach on this one.


Wait and See what? No, I'm all in with the conference and our potential reach.  I see growth and opportunities ,heretofore a challenge, but the MEAC still survived with our programs growing.  Failure is not an option with some, but stagnation surely will get you sooner than later.  Getting the right people in the right positions in our Athletic Departments at member schools  should help with business modeling from new  outside fundings in addition to "taken for granted faithful " at the turnstiles and students fees.   We best wakeup!  Now you know, THAT IS THE OPPORTUNITY.  MOVING WILL NOT HELP IF ALL REMAINS THE SAME.

Remember that time in Durham and the smart folk who formed that conference.  They chose school that would fit  which had perennially been strong Football institutions.

I heard someone mention after the accident coupled with the length of time for his recovery to assume duties as AD on that small campus was over the top.  Pup is probably 75+ and time to move on down the road. NOT.   It is a sad ending for a great coach.  When it is time to go, leave and not wait to be chased away spoiling your numerous and hard to surpass records.  Building with his name emblazoned is on that campus already.    Hey pup,  ease on down the road with dignity.

Sports Forum / Re: MEAC Lost $1.8 Million Between 2017-18

On top of that the title is misleading, if not outright a lie.  The MEAC didn't lose revenue; it increased expenses. Revenue actually went up.

You are correct, but why did the expenses increase by so much while the revenue basically stayed the same???  MEAC's revenue only increased by $183,795 while its expenses increased by $2,081,208, which resulted in a net loss of $1,897,413 between the two years.  This reminds me of a fraternity chapter I once was a member of in Lynchburg, VA.  They would spend $2,000 to have a fundraiser to only raise $1,500.  It really didn't make any sense to have a fundraiser with a net loss of $500. The title of the article should have been net losses instead of revenue when comparing 2017 to 2018.



Jaq, you have to consider the source.    It is like a tabloid.    :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:  You can't be sure with their research nor reports.
