I wasn't planning on attending but the hotel rates are so cheap I couldn't resist. Staying at Hyatt Place in Buckhead for $65 per night.

What most people fail to realize is that Willie Simmons holds a degree in Marketing. He pushes and promote his product. He sells his athletes and stakeholders on his program. Those newspaper headlines were done inhouse. Yes, he does have something to celebrate. He's turned around a fledgling program inside of 2 years and restored a sense of pride in these student that they have witnessed since many were in middle school. Too, he's laying the groundwork for the upcoming 2020 season in building the season ticket and donor base. I ain' mad about what he's doing. I think that it's a smart move when your building your business to be successful. That's my $0.02...



I ain't mad at him either. If the situation were reversed I'd want A&T to do the same. Plus he's helping build hype for next years game. Marketing genius indeed because he's got all the attention on his program.   :lol:

Looking forward to the day he ends up in prison.  Criminals will eventually get caught again.

Not to mention they are an FBS team posing as a FCS team, and everybody knows it.

Exactly! Probably even a top 50 FBS team. I suspect their fans are getting bored. Lol, FBS teams will no longer schedule them.

I'm not sure the ad is from the school. Coach said they are not claiming to be MEAC Champs but they are celebrating being the best team in the MEAC and black college football. I don't see anything wrong with that.

 Just when you think this episode can't get any more ridiculous.

They could have started by explaining why they decided to leave the MEAC. I've read varying reasons such as a desire to participate in playoffs then another read says travel expenses?

Dems don't have a particularly appealing group of candidates.

They shouldn't have played for a fg. You could tell it was gonna get blocked when Big Worm called the first timeout.

2,400 tickets is no sellout for that venue.  The crowd again will look sad.

2400 was A&T's allotment which the school sold out in one day. I suspect the game will be somewhere around 32,000. One of the problems with having a better attendance is the SWAC does not bring many people. That likely will change if SU is the rep.

Bayou Classic, SWAC Championship game and Celebration Bowl and Xmas all within  30 day window is a lot to ask of any fan base.

Last team with the ball will probably win the game.
