We were not the only ones that made the MEAC look bad.  Morgan State, Delaware State, and FAMU all got blown out also.  Talk to us next week after A&T plays Duke.

Yeah but Morgan State and FAMU played FBS schools.  Austin Peay is traditionally in the bottom half of the OVC.  I wouldn't compare Central's loss to losing to FBS schools.

This is a good game to pick.  Both teams could be legit contenders in their respective divisions this year.

Folks remember it took App State more than ten years to plan for their move. But if they never started the process, because they were not ready at the time, they never would have made it.

It didn't take APP State that long, more like less than half that time.  They started a feasibility study in September 2010 and by August 2011 they made the decision to move up.  Their first year of playing FBS was 2014.

Yes, that is true.  But before the feasibility study there was talk about them moving up for years, which in tern, caused the study. There has to be this period of just thinking about what it would take and how it will work before any serious considerations is taken. It won't happen over night. A&T probably would take longer because they have more barriers, but they can do it. They already have a DI campus. First you have to have a dream to do so. Right now, A&T is the closest HBCU that has any chance at it. But not in the next 10 years. I don't like A&T, but I will give them credit for being great right now. They would make all of us proud to be an HBCU.

AGGIE PRIDE!

I hope the best for them if they do decide to move up.  I would just say use Liberty as a cautionary tell.  Even though they have the money still no conference wants them so they are stuck being a FBS Independent for the foreseeable future. 

If the Sunbelt and CUSA weren't willing to take a Conservative Southern Baptist school, they might also show their true colors and not take an HBCU.

No one else finds this ridiculous?

What would you suggest is a good solution?

Does the conference set the schedule in the CIAA?  If so, then how in the world did they not consider double booking when setting the schedule?  Why couldn't Shaw set their homecoming for the end of September against Ed Waters?

Shaw only has four home games including the pseudo-home game against St. Augs; so I understand they are trying to give them home games.  However, they are the ones renting the stadium and should be the ones inconvenienced by double-booked weekends.  Now, St. Aug has to play WSSU as a road team for a second year instead.

If I were a St. Aug season tix holder I'd be pissed.  We should have five home games.

Shaw/St Aug fans speak on it.

The CIAA does set the conference portion of the schedule; however, the division portion has been the same since 2012 just alternating home and away. So there shouldn't be any blame on the conference either.  Before schedules were announced Shaw and St Augs should have known there were going to be conflicts.

I do wonder if they ever considered having one of the teams play a Thursday or Friday night game during the double booked weeks just to maintain having home field.

Never mind, just remembered the stadium doesn't have lights so that wouldn't have worked.

111
WSSU still slippin! :shrug: :no:

What does this have to do with WSSU?  This was a St Augs home game, and with the Shaw deal St Augs double booked their stadium.  So now the game will be played closer to Winston and WSSU gets part of the gate for what was initially supposed to be an away game.  So how is WSSU slippin?

Here's an example of what I'm talking about.  In a 5 year period Benedict College WBB won 81 % of their games while VUU won 76%.  However since VUU played in a championship game does that makes them more dominant in your eyes???? :shrug:

That's a fair enough question, but I would think National and Regional success would tip the scale in VUU's favor.  Also, the fact that VUU and Benedict played twice during that stretch and VUU won both meetings 97-52 and 81-50 shows that VUU was the more dominate between the two.
Then what you are looking for is agreement with your choices because your poll did not indicate what you are saying now.  :shrug:

This isn't my poll.  I was just responding to why VUU would be considered more dominant then Benedict.

Did you mean to have NCCU basketball twice?

Also, not sure of your criteria but I would think VUU's Women basketball needs to be on this list.  In just the last 4 seasons they are: 3x CIAA Champs; 2x NCAA Atlantic Region Champs; 2016-2017 National Runner Up; and have made the D2 national tournament the past 4 seasons.  Plus there record over the past 4 seasons is 112-14.

Also, you may think about adding Lincoln Mo's women track team.  In the past 5 seasons they have won the Nation Championship twice and were runners up once in outdoor track, and they won one indoor national championship during that time as well.

Which FCS schools had a road football game at a D2 school?

Hampton played at a D3 school last year.......

116
I want to put to rest this myth that the Big South is better travel for Hampton, especially with Savannah State out of the MEAC.  I think some people are just looking at the Big South being only 3 states, but Hampton is in the far East of VA and the Big South has some schools in the western parts of NC and SC.  Also the MEAC gave Hampton a break when it came to traveling to the FL schools.  Going all the way back to 06 (that's when their website stops) the football team never made more than 1 trip a year to FL, and in 2014 and 2015 they didn't have to travel to either FL school.  Also, starting with the 2011-2012 basketball season they only had to travel to FL every other year, and those games were paired together over the course of three days so they could make it one trip.

Big South mileage numbers for travel distance and averages:

Presbyterian College (sponsors football) – 455.8
USC Upstate – 407.1
Campbell (sponsors football) – 209.6
Charleston Southern (sponsors football) – 434.1
Gardner Webb (sponsors football) – 386.4
High Point – 263

UNCA – 418.9

Kennesaw State (football only) – 588.5
Monmouth (football only) – 355.9
North Alabama (football only) – 794
Full Time Members – 336.06
Football (members who sponsor football and associates) – 460.61

MEAC mileage numbers for travel and average distances:

Coppin State – 223.1
Morgan – 226.8
Del State – 205.7
UMES – 127
Howard – 180.8
BCU – 717.2
FAMU – 786.8
SC State – 408.3
NCCU – 194.5
A&T – 247.6
Norfolk State – 14.7

Sports Forum / Re: SWAC adopts eight-game conference schedule
« on: June 13, 2019, 09:58:05 AM »
“This initial step along with future implementation strategies will increase the likelihood of SWAC football teams qualifying for the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) playoffs via an at-large selection if they don’t qualify to participate in the Celebration Bowl.”

Is the SWAC going to move up their championship game to before the FCS playoffs start as part of the implementation strategies?  If not then how much of a chance does the third best team in the conference have at getting an at-large bid for the playoffs?

Have either school thought about relocating to the Old Wake Forest campus? I know the campuses are sitting on prime real estate in downtown Raleigh. I know The City / State / Big Business / sports wants to improve and add things downtown, and if they were willing to give enough money to purchase and refurbish the old campus, either school could grow and build what they want.......

I think there is a bible college there now.

Looks like he dodged two bullets with alleged sexual assault victims not pressing charges against him.  https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/ex-florida-freshman-quarterback-accused-of-sexual-assault-transferring-to-jackson-state/

Hope he keeps his head on straight and takes advantage of this second chance.

One can play in the afternoon. One can play at night.

They can play each other for Homecoming.

Does that stadium even have lights?  If not, then the two games a day would be a no go.
