Wondering if WSSU will ever play N.C. A&T again in football?

Yeah, if they get the chicken out of the administration.

I doubt it. WSSU wants a home and home. And until that changes , we won't play. Honestly don't think A&T will be playing any D2 schools for awhile as those wins don't help with FCS at large bids


A.  It should be home and home


B.  Win your conference and it won't matter.

 If it should be a home and home , then why aren't you playing NCCU at home in 2021? This is a one game deal. Seem hypocritical to me


It's not hypocritical.  The game at Winston doesn't normally draw nearly as well as in Durham.  When we play y'all it's a packed house no matter the venue.

So that's A&T fault too huh ? My point is that you accept less money and terms from NCCU but demand different from the Aggies. That's the hypocritical part


No it's not your fault. The difference is (again) the stadium size.  We can only fill so many seats at NCCU, but we can fill a lot more at BB&, therefore we get less from them than we ask from you.


When you beat schools like Charlotte, ECU, App St, etc......playing Winston just doesn't move the needle anymore :shrug:
It's 2019 - not 1999.  The home-and-home vs DII opposition doesn't jive anymore.
 

Like who?!!!!

No, that's not the only way. Could swear that y'all have played Shaw in recent years or am I tripping? The "stunted growth" comment is the only valid one here. When we were "on your level" you were still scared!

If we are no longer equals then y'all shouldn't be scared.  We aint!  You should relish the idea of putting  us in our place, and the nice revenue that would come with it.


How about this for a compromise: 4-year series, with 2 in Gboro, 1 in Winston-Salem and 1 at a neutral site?

An FCS is not gonna play a D2 in a home-home site series. It used to not be a problem back in the day, but that's not how it's done now. This game will never happen unless WSSU administrators wise up and toe the line!  :nod: :lol:


Again sir it has never been the norm for D1 to play at D2.  I won't name the exceptions to that.  I'm betting that had y'all not built Price, AND VSU had a bigger venue that would have stayed home & home. However all you have to do is look up the attendance at the last games we played and you just might note that our facility can hold the crowd. If it were TRULY a road game, then you and your Aggie brethren would have a good point.


Since you are only an Aggie fan, I will ask you to survey the folks that attended the women's game between us this year. This game is what brought me back to the debate.  You may note I didn't type one word about it last year.

We would have built Price eventually regardless because ODU would have eventually fielded a football team, so D2 VSU will always play FCS NSU @ NSU unless VSU moves up to D1-FCS football.
Yes, but the point is that you built it big, so you can host pretty much anyone you play outside a Power 5 school.  VSU vs NSU HAS to be played outside Petersburg.

We built Price Stadium big based off the football crowds NSU had at ODU's Forman Field, and the fact that I believe I future plans included moving up to D1 in all sports except football, and D1-AA or FCS for football.
  Yes. Therefore there is no reason for you to play in Petersburg.

:lmao:keeping it 100, i would not play A&T anytime soon. We got a hot coaching mess, a hot AD mess and possibly a hot chancellor mess (pure speculation on that last one). The point is we have to get our house in order before getting drug down the field! I personally could care less about playing A&T but we have some who just cant avoid wanting that game. Now is definately not the time unless you care nothing about winning the game. If you dont have a reasonable chance of winning no need to play. The pay day is not worth the reputational damage imho. :nono2:

  When the series first stopped it was because WSSC had no chance to beat them.  When it resumed WSSU had "no chance to beat them," until we hammered them in G'boro no less.  When KB took over, we had "no chance" to beat them until the last two games before the second stoppage. When it resumed again, we "had no chance...…."

I know both schools got paid every time we played since the first resurrection of the game. Who knows; the "hot mess" might rally the troops. Our rep cannot be damaged by losing to them, just our pride. In their minds THEIRS can.  That's why they don't want to play us.  THE BS about the home field is just that. If we kicked their behinds every time they came to BG then they'd have something to fear.  In fact we lost to FOBBS in Winston. :o :o

So Aggies I offer this compromise since Winston is such a scary place: Four games, 2 in BB&T, 1 in BG, and 1 at a neutral site.  Or 3 at BB&T and 1 neutral....................

QB is a little bit stronger.
We won't miss K Moore as much as one might think.
D-line/depth is the key.

i don't really care what conference the Pirates play in.  ::) I just think it is crazy as catchit that Norfolk State ISN'T on their schedule and you're right across the Bay  >:(

Say what?!!!! ;D

Hhmmm... doesn't say a lot about the AD, Chancellor or Administration's ability to reach out to get former WSSU athletes to at least give $25. If 100 football players from one year give $25 you have a little bit of money. Etc. etc. From the outside looking in it appears as though yall need to go call Bill Hayes to help yall engage people. From being around Jake Ford I can tell you Big House Gaines could always get his boys to give to the cause. But.. bottom line this amount raised more than points out that the current athletics administration and coaches have not built any rapport with its former student-athletes. Where is the narrative and appeal to make people give back. All WSSU had to do was get former non-trifling athletes, coaches and supporters on board to reach out to people with a compelling narrative. :brickwall:

One of my homies has been besides himself.  He has been a fan since they came into the league.  Now I remember he is everything St. Louis, including the Hawks.

I'm glad he had the nads to cancel it.  The candidates were not viable, especially for WSSU. I believe the next search committee will have to be more open minded about the candidates.
What were they looking for in an AD Oldram?


The general theme was "someone good at fund raising."  ::)

Then they pick those three as the finalists out of all the applications they received? The person geographically closest to WSSU knew nothing about the school.


The alumni et. al, also wanted that, but prefer that Rams be given priority in their thinking. There are many alumni, including myself, who at minimum will have the passion needed to sell WSSU to non-participants.
