Sports Forum / Re: Alabama A&M new basketball arena

Impressive. Also impressed that AAMU has a director of economic development.

A&T's Athletic Director, Earl Hilton, was interviewed on Box To Row this morning.
Help us understand how he think he understands black issues enough to talk about Aggie pride. Most of that pride is rooted in the black struggle and not sports. A&T is a national level HBCU and has been one of our main leaders for civil rights. Their hiring this AD was a sellout. Divide and conquer. Take the head and the others will die. This far more than sports. Its funny how traditionally, black men has let a ball dictate his worth.

So moving to another sports conference removes all that? Where was all this outside concern 12-15 years ago when we were struggling?
For all the criticism he's rceiving this AD has saved Aggie Athletics. With all the hbcus we see having financial issues we get flak for cutting 500k in expenses? Even your own school couldn't handle the expenses of D1 but you hypocritically
criticize us for making financially responsible decisions? Man ya'll can take your bs somewhere else.

Furthermore, GTFOH with this sellout narrative you are pushing.  Are other HBCUs sellouts for having non-Black professors, coaches, employees, and students?

No, because those non-Blacks are AT a Black institution.

I have yet to see any Aggie post one of the MAIN reasons for going to the Big South as opposed to other conferences.

Huh? Once again, the MAIN reason for going to the Big South is a reduction in travel costs estimated to be at $500k per year.

No one can tell me different because I was in attendance at the initial meeting in 2015 when a detailed power point presentation was given covering this issue. At that time he said he was exploring moving to a more geographically friendly conference.

The AD and Chancellor met with a total of eight other fcs/fbs conferences with offers coming from two, the BSC and the Atlantic Sun. It is also said that an offer was being put together by the Southern Conference. In the end the Big South is the one that made the most sense if our intent is to save on travel costs.

The AD was asked about other reasons and he said there were other benefits to the move, however travel cost was the reason for the move......the same thing he said 5 years ago.

Politics / Re: Russia is Helping Bernie Sanders
« on: February 22, 2020, 07:47:47 AM »
Three questions I have.

1.Do the Russians actually support Sanders?
2.Is it reverse politics to prop up a candidate they feel Trump can defeat?
3. Are they simply trying to create division?

Bernie Sanders can't defeat Trump. The only candidate he's ever been concerned with is Biden who seems to have lost his appeal. I think the Ukraine allegations by Trump amongst other things have dimmed his chances. Mission accomplished.

In SC where we have an open primary and none on the GOP side Republicans are being coached to vote for Bernie Sanders because with a self imposed Socialist label he would make the ideal opponent for Trump to tear down in a general election.

In NC Republican Pacs are pouring millions into the democratic Senate primary.
So now we're judging who can defeat him by who he's concern with?



Not solely, however I think it is one of several indicators to pay attention to.

We not going anywhere...this is a HBCU sport board.

This is going to be the biggest HBCU sports story of the year.

NC A&T and it’s last season in the MEAC.

It’s going to be years before we know the true impact...

YOU'LL KNOW THE REAL IMPACT IN SIGNIFICANTLY LESS TIME THAN THAT. BUH-BYE!


You keep saying bye but still have comments? Feel free to exit from this convo if you dont like what you're reading.


Eagles, I am bookmarking these threads so we can revisit in the future.   ;D

Sports Forum / Re: What will be best for the other MEAC schools?
« on: February 21, 2020, 08:07:13 AM »
I just thought about the CIAA losing Hampton, Norfolk State, A&T, Howard, etc and the conference is still rolling. I think the MEAC will be fine.

The CIAA was able to recruit new members primarily in the same region, something the MEAC is struggling with.
Travel issues aren't going away. What are they going to do to address this issue? If nothing then there may be more defections.

Sadly I don't think there is a candidate in the democratic field who can beat Trump.

The A&T vs NCCU Basketball rivalry will suffer if you are in different conferences. :tiptoe:

In spite of what eaglepride says, the rivalry will continue. The only drawback is we will probably only play once per season instead of two or three times.

:lol:^^^uhhh, boss, while I might agree with the sentiments expressed in your post, let my black a.z.z show up tomorrow empty handed. That is EXACTLY what Mrs. Strike would call me, “dumb and useless”.   :lol:
