Some say he wrote a check to HU to be allowed there.  If he did I say take the check and keep it moving. 

I can’t stand Kanye West - I’ve never liked him.   Never.  I think he’s different just to say he’s different.  His words hold no weight with me because he has admitted he doesn’t vote and he doesn’t read books.  Nothing he says will ever be relevant to me. 

I see why some would have a problem with his presence, and some of my FB friends have gone on rants about how this would be handled at the “Old Howard” whatever that means. However while I think that his rhetoric is a detriment to black folks, our institutions of higher learning are about different thoughts no matter how stupid they may be. 

I truly hope most people didn’t fall for his drivel.

Two touchdowns called back on successive plays and being forced to settle for a field goal late in the second half was too much to overcome. But Valley Girl and all my friends from the Valley, didnt I tell you last year to leave your coach alone? I trust that you will show some "humility" on Saturday.

The Tuskegee-Morehouse Classic is a great event for central Georgia and I think it was the motivation for the Fountain  City Classic. I was there for the very first one.

Sir, I’m pleased with the record, but I’m not easily fooled.  We are a one trick pony sir.  If you put pressure on our QB and find out how to stop that slant pass he’s got, we become severely limited.   We have very few run plays.  Not balanced at all.

Nonetheless I am pleased and pray we win out for the rest of the season.

I love the FCC - it is HUGE for both schools, but o really wish there were some way to move the game to a home and home.  Columbus loves to see us coming because we put a ton of money into the city that weekend.  The place is packed.  My favorite game.

I kind of wouldn’t mind Tomlin in Atlanta, but he is kind of laid back. The Falcons are already too laid back IMO and need some intensity - on top of someone knowing what the hell they're doing because clearly Dan Quinn was piggy backing Pete Carroll and the Legion of Boom in Seattle.   This man doesn’t seem to know anything.
Tomlin is not as laid back as you think and a coach has to be himself to get the most out of his players.  The major issue with the Falcons is no-one knows what the LLLLL they are doing.  Art Rooney of the Steelers review the season and see what they need to improve upon.  For example, they had issues running the ball, so he told the staff, and they drafted Bell.  They have issues pressuring the QB and Art told them to improve and they spend picks on defense.  Blanks needs to learn the game or have someone he trusts to review the needs of the team.

Well anybody is better than who we have now. Quinn is a joke. That defense is terrible.  Just TERRIBLE.  He and Dimitroff need to get gone ASAP.

Damn NCA&T,  would you PLEASE go to Winston Salem and play these folks - they feel some kind of way for real.

Nope watching their alums beg and plead is worth gold. We have smack material for decades


:lol:

Pretty Please?  This clearly affects them deeply.  You can help heal their hurt and the rest of HBCU land would be in your debt forever.  Just do it for the greater good.

Everybody must have been tailgating at MVSU - those numbers look low for a Homecoming. 

I don’t know how their stadium is set up but perhaps they might consider following the model Tuskegee and in recent years FVSU has implemented - make it so that the tailgating area requires a ticket.  I KNOW an HBCU had more people than that, especially in the SWAC.
All the years of losing have affected MVSU ATTENDANCE. No one goes to the game (4k inside stadium, 15k outside tailgating on the yard) During the 90's we had great attendance. Now in the black Delta the people have lost interest and the athletic department sucks in getting community involved to create a buzz. It's sad!

See, I knew they were there, just not in the stadium. 

How is it set up?  I think if you lower ticket prices and require folks get a game day ticket it will increase revenue and possibly numbers over the long haul.   Start out the first year charging folks $5, then ramp it up every year.  Can’t hit them with the $20 / $25 right off the bat, but 15K multiplied by $5 isn’t bad - even if you loose about 5K that get pissed because of the change 10k, $50,000 in extra revenue isn’t bad.  It’s more than you had 🤷🏾‍♀️

And those 5K you lost will be back within 2-3 years.

Tariq has to be WAY more likeable to carry on a new show.  I know if he kills ghost I would stop watching.

Hell to be honest since Proctor died I don’t care if they all die.  He was the only one I liked. 

Tariq won’t die (I wish he would suffer though), Tommy probably will, and Lakeisha is gonna die or go to jail.   


Keisha and Tariq are INSUFFERABLE.

We [Morehouse] SHOULD DO that cause students, alumni no longer even bother coming in to the stadium now. Back in the day, it would be packed INSIDE the game. These days, they don't even know who the opponent is.   ::)



What you don’t get in ticket sales you sure do recoup in parking.  They tried to charge us $5 million dollars a few years ago when we played up there for HC.

I will say that you do have the setup to pull it off  - people will have a hissy fit, conniption, and a temper tantrum all at once when you first implement it, but they’ll come around eventually. 


My cousins used to come tailgate in FV with us, but when they found out they had to buy a game ticket?   They just wait until Columbus.  Others have followed suit, but I say those that are supposed to be there will be there.   The games USED to be packed for sure, but when we started tailgating heavily 20-25 years ago the numbers dwindled consistently.

General Discussion Forum / Re: j bought 1 tire today
« on: August 11, 2019, 12:07:48 PM »
Why do women always buy an odd number of tires, (1 and 3)?  A guy would never do that, we buy two or four at  a time.
So answer this.  If you recently bought a set of tires and one gets damaged that can't be repaired you buy two or a new set????  I always suspected you were a fool. :no:

You buy 2. The two tires on the same end need to have the same thread wear if want the optimum permanence. This is why tires are rotated in pairs from front to back.  Perhaps I'm just a little too white for you here. Black folk like to rig up some stuff. Car all out af alignment and tire wear on one side. "This side got some threads left, so I only need one."

So, to give M&G an audience today, buying one new tire when you have 3 old ones on, will give you a bumpy ride. If you put two new tires on one end, that corrects the imbalance.

Don't you shade tree mechanics know this?  :shrug:


Dude if she bought  a set of tires a few months ago the tread wear ain’t gone make that much difference.  I bet you the tire technicians are gonna tell her she needs to replace both of those tires at the same time when she does decide to buy more tires.

I bought a new set  at the end of April and if one gets messed up today guess what I’m gonna do? Replace it with one.

Ms J knows what she’s doing.  She has been running her household for a long time now.  She’s got this.
