Sports Forum / Re: Can the CIAA grab some MEAC teams

It would probably be easier to help Maryland Eastern Shore and Coppin State to develop football programs than finding new football members.

No way. Coppin would have to add another 6M to its operational budget and then figure out where they’d play games since you have to have a standout that seat 10k to be FCS.  And for UMES it would be be much of the same with no one coming to watch they’d be be better off each going to D2. At that level I could see UMES cutting a men’s sport and then adding football at 30 scholarships like Bowie St and award partials.

Where is that 10k stadium requirement stated?  According to NCAA.org there's 42 FCS schools that have listed capacities under 10k.  Also, that can't even be a requirement for new programs or programs moving up because LIU Post and Merrimack both recently moved up from D2 and neither are close to having 10k stadiums.

All that can be said is Wow! Most of their schedule is against playoff caliber schools. BSU could have a great team and still finish about .500. Most of those teams are looking at BSU as a serious challenge. However, scheduling all those great teams was, in my opinion, not a good idea. Somebody is probably going to beat them... maybe three or four will beat them. But good luck Champs!

 :nod:

However, I will add, we could have been beaten 2-3 times last year when you looked at the pre-season schedule. We lost once.

I'm just sayin...

A fictional character from a Baltimore-based series put it another way...

"When you come at the king....You best not miss."

Good schedule, but you can't afford to come out flat this year.  Last year you guys let AIC hang around too long and Shaw had the biggest meltdown ever and gave that game away.

Hard to say if any of our schools are in trouble. Most of our HBCU’s already have plenty of experience stretching a dollar so who knows? We may just get outta this without losing any football programs.

For a public school Lincoln MO isn't doing so hot right now.  Who knows what steps they may have to take.

1st Round
4 quarterbacks
4 defensive linemen
6 cornerbacks
7 offensive linemen
4 linebackers
6 wide receivers
1 running back

If no mistake.

I'm not a Packers fan,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,but does anybody know why they picked a QB in the first round? I thought they were set at that position? :popcorn:

I thought it was a good get for them to find Rodgers’ replacement now. He will get the chance to learn under Aaron’s tutelage for a few years before it’s turned over to him.

Agree 100%.  They did the same thing with Rodgers, he played backup to Favre for 3 years.  Rodgers is also 36, one bad injury at this point in his career and his playing days could be over.

Are games that tough to come by in D2?

Yeah, they can be especially for the Northern CIAA schools.  The closest conferences in the North don't schedule that many OOC games (i.e. PSAC and MEC schools only schedule one OOC game and that's in the first week).

It's probably about time the CIAA expands to an 8 game conference schedule, because a lot of our schools struggle to find three OOC games each year.

Best of luck to this kid, but something seems off here.  How does a player who "received interest" from ACC and SEC schools take over two months after signing day to sign with an FCS school?

This is looking like it may be a favor to the kid's dad.

He originally committed to us before but he's a PWO and we generally don't announce PWOs. This announcement came from his camp.

Thanks for the information and now it's making sense.  Looking at what y'all have, and what you all will recruit in future years, I'm guessing he will have to change positions if he wants to see the field.  If not, I could see him at a CIAA school in a couple of years.

His career is done, or at least will be put on hold for some time.  I can't imagine it will take long for McDonald's to pull it's sponsorship.  Plus he was about to be a sought after free agent.  None of the competitive teams will sign him now.  If he does land a car next year it will be with some low value team who doesn't have the resources to produce a winning car.

That was a good read.  The hit that A&T is taking from the March Madness revenues won't be as bad considering the travel savings they will have from the Spring sports being cancelled.

I know that schools are giving their students a prorated refund for room and board, but does anyone know if things like athletic fees and other student fees are also being refunded on a prorated base?  If so, then that would be a big hit to a lot of our school's athletic budgets.

Florida need their asses whipped. I betcha the payout for FAMU
is less than that of other FBS teams on their schedules.

87, I don't believe that FBS teams on their schedule(s) are given a payout because those games are typically home-and-home games. The games between FBS and FCS teams are not typically home-n-home being for the reason for the payout, in addition to filling a hole in their schedule.

I think you mean Power 5 games and not FBS.  Florida is willing to "travel" to USF because that's in state at an NFL stadium, but I doubt Florida is traveling to any other Group of 5 schools.  It also looks like they are paying UNCC $1.55 million to play them in a couple of years.

Now that we will be playing in the Big South, the three non conference games well be scheduled at a premium.

You're only going to have 7 conference games in the Big South.  So you guys will need to find 4 non conference games a year.  That's assuming that no other Big South members leave anytime soon.

Ok.  Then it's an HBCU conference combine




its who the nfl says it is and that means chowan can participate.  ya'll can twist the semantics around all ya like, but it won't change jack.  so ya'll can define it anyway ya want to.  but the bottom line is that chowan will be there...

Here is something Hampton is a hbcu who plays in a non hbcu conference because there a hbcu should schools in there conference  be allowed to come to hbcu combine because there in a conference with a hbcu. No different with chowan being non hbcu in a hbcu conference

Very good point. How about Blue Field State and West Virginia State? Should they also be invited? I strongly believe the NFL saw a group of schools that have traditionally been undeserved and decided to give them a carrot. Considering that the NFL is at least 65% black, their gesture of having a black colleges combine was fair. They would not turn Chowan down because they are perceived to be with us... since they are in our conference. Why would the NFL piss us off and exclude our friends if the only thing they wanted to do was to correct a wrong done against us? But, I think their intention was for this to be just for black colleges.

Just my opinion.

Bluefield State doesn't have football, but yes since WVSU is an HBCU they should be eligible.  Tennessee State and Hampton are HBCUs in non HBCU conferences and they had players invited, so why shouldn't WVSU?

But at this point non of this really matters anymore since the combine has been cancelled.

Sports Forum / Lincoln PA Cancels Spring Sports

Wasn't sure if this was already posted.

https://lulions.com/news/2020/3/11/administration-corona-virus-affects-lincoln-athletics.aspx

Lincoln University, Pa. – In the wake of the corona virus protocols put in place by the university, the Lincoln University Athletics Department has canceled the remainder of the spring sports season.  Lincoln plans to resume athletics competition beginning in the fall of 2020

Now it is time to see how CIAA Leadership can leverage this, I think 2.5 or 3 million is a good starting point

That would be a good start.  Also, require Charlotte to do what Baltimore is doing and commit a certain amount of hotels that have a reasonably capped per night room rate.

To be fair to Charlotte , they did get it under control. But the rooms were 250 plus a night thru the conference. I'm thinking 150 to 175 range. Also getting all games back into the big arena.

Baltimore has provided hotels in that range.  On the official housing site there are 11 hotels with per night rates ranging from $159 - $199.  I don't expect places like the Ritz or Omni to agree to those rates, but there is no reason places like the Holiday Inn, Hyatt Place, Hampton Inn, etc. couldn't agree to that rate range in Charlotte.  https://theciaa.com/sports/2020/1/16/2021_Fan%20Housing.aspx

I actually think the early round games make sense in Bojangles.  The crowd is so thin those first couple of days that you might as well use a smaller arena.
