I have one question about schools moving to the big south.  Why is the move not discussed with the school’s supporters and public before it is made?  Hampton’s move was a total mess, and A&T’s move is not any better. 
Why are things so undercover?  Are the schools doing thing that may not be in the best interest of the groups they do not speak with?  When you look at Hampton’s situation with scheduling, and lost of interest in their games, why would any other school want to be put in that situation?

Come on man, are you serious? You can’t make decisions like this in the open public.

Hell, we would still be in the CIAA if we had  discussed creating the MEAC 50 years ago.

Hampton's conference exit was a complete mess because they announced they were leaving the MEAC in less than eight months, wanted to continue playing a MEAC schedule following their departure including competing for conference championships, got pissed when the MEAC would not oblige their request, and then had the nerve to take their feud with the conference public.  Our departure from the MEAC is planned out, not rushed, and gives everyone time to properly prepare. 

I’m not going to front; the news of this move is shocking, and I think it is a gutsy move by our leadership especially considering the historic and significance of N.C. A & T being a founding, full participant in all sports, and never wavering member of the MEAC.  Time will tell if this gamble pays off.  I am optimistic because 1.) our leadership (specifically our Board of Trustees, Chancellor, and Athletic Director) have proven to be successful with other measures that continue to transform the university and move us forward.  2.) Our athletic department have sustaining winning programs in the majority of the MEAC sports in which we compete.  I don’t see this move in no way as N.C. A & T snubbing the MEAC or “selling out” HBCUs and Black culture.  Knowing our leadership, the Big South is just the first step to transitioning our athletic programs to eventually a higher competitive conference at the FBS level.     

Why would we go FBS if we don't want students to travel more than necessary?

The MEAC has been around for 50 years. The Florida members have been around for 40 years. The MEAC is fine.

The MEAC has 9 football members. When we go to the Big South the MEAC will have 8 football members.

The Big South will have 8 football members and 3 are part time members.

The MEAC doesn't have problems.

These are the football games already on the books for 2021 for A&T, so I guess we will pick up 1 or 2 non-conference games.

2021
09/04 - at Furman
09/11 - Charleston Southern
TBA - at Duke

The goal for A&T by 2023 is 30% non-African American.

The whole offseason-question-marks-for-NDSU thing was fun while it lasted, wasn’t it? Anyone who covers FCS football knew the Bison would reload in 2019. But what they did was beyond what anyone expected, going 16-0 with just three games decided by 10 points or less. After all, the Bison were a pretty young team and there were plenty of uncertainties a year ago. Which now makes for a scary thought on how good the 2020 team will be.

Roughly 71 percent of the rushing and receiving production are back, 79.2 percent of the points scored return and 78.5 percent of the tackling production comes back. Oh, and not to mention the reigning Walter Payton Award winner at quarterback, Trey Lance, and four starting offensive linemen return.

Simply put, the Bison are absurdly loaded. The vibes I’m getting with this team entering 2020 are the same vibes I got entering 2013 and 2018.

So we’re back to the offseason storyline of NDSU vs. the field. Last year, it was a triple-threat match between NDSU vs. JMU vs. the field. Right now, it’s hard to confidently say which team can rise to NDSU’s level in 2020.
