After all these years of Shaw playing in Durham County Stadium, this makes no sense to me as to why St. Augustine would give this game to WSSU instead of doing the same.
Not being in the room, I'm willing to bet Durham County officials priced themselves out of the game.

I'm still confused....this is a clear win for WSSU in terms of the move. We both (Shaw & St.Aug) had to change home games to accommodate the season. St.Aug gets to stay in the state of NC so it's a win for them as well.
I see a win for WSSU but not for Shaw. How does Shaw "win" from keeping it's own scheduled home game in the state in NC when they are playing WSSU? where the hell else but in NC world the have been played? And now it's a WSSU home game? Smh
If anyone is to blame, (and I'm saying that lightly) it would be St. Aug for basically giving up their home game and not calling the shots on where it is played. But with that being said, this could benefit both schools if done right. Recruiting teams should be working overtime on this one.

No one else finds this ridiculous?
What would you suggest is a good solution?

In a moment of Kum Bah Yah, congratulations to the young man. I actually watch that game. Whew.......ok Jags, see you at the Classic.

So Lawrence Kershaw will be the OC? It should be a step up from Natrone Means, who was an awful play caller.

Ok Commish. Time to get it started. I'm still trying to get my crown back.

I might come up there to watch that game. Coach Maynor is a former church member of mine and Canton is only a 7-hour drive for me.

On the plus side, the venue is brand new, really nice, AND appropriately sized. The fans that actually show up will probably enjoy themselves as there’s lots to do in nearby Charlotte in between games. But yeah, Rock Hill was a very odd choice.
You beat me to the punch. I'm thinking they are hoping to get the residual income from Charlotte, but very odd choice. The attendance in Birmingham must have been very bad for them to go down to a 1,200 seat arena.

Smart decision to do this. It saves the conference money but not using a large stadium and half filling it up. But I pray we get great attendence doing this.

I didn't realize how small their enrollment is. Wow!
Not sure what the enrollment is now, but the last known numbers were 597 back in 2011.

It's definitely a day by day situation with them being in Lynchburg, VA. I've recently passed by that school and have noticed very little activity. Maybe Lynchburg's News and Advance could provide some information.
The response will be something like...'WHO?'
Has anybody here on the board EVER visited the campus for a game? football? basketball? jacks?
Yes, I've been to their campus. My wife's cousin used to go there and the campus is very, very small and the buildings are old. They are in desperate need of funds. They play their games at a local high school stadium and the campus is right down the street from Liberty University....like night and day.

Has Grambling lost that much?
Unfortunately yes. We lost a lot of key players on defense and Geremy Hickbottom, in my opinion, was not the answer at QB. But time will tell if we are better or worse, but I'm sure Coach Fobbs and the staff will coach them up.
