...since we are generally a very disciplined football team.

Ha!  ::) Not according to others here. :no: Discipline is not allowing your opponent get into your head and staying focused on the mission. Your players allowed the fans in the stands to take them completely out of the game. That's a no-no. :nono2:

Kinda what my statement said in it's entirety? Hopefully this was still a one off. We didn't get to be a perennial top 20 team and win 3 of 4 last BCF championships by playing undisciplined football.

 Disappointed our 2 All Americans Mac McCain and Elijah Bell got tossed. Additionally I'm surprised they allowed the hype and circumstances of this game to get to them. As team leaders we expect better from them. More importantly they have to sit out the first half of homecoming game vs HU.  I'll consider this an isolated incident since we are generally a very disciplined football team. I'm sure the Chancellor will not accept any repeats of this behavior. I only saw the first half but rattlers I'm sure you are not without blame. Anyways I hope this doesn't detract too much from an otherwise hard fought heavyweight battle.

It's been 3 years since we've lost a road game to an FCS school so we have to shake this one off and get ready for GHOE.

Congrats Rattlers.

I think espn+ has to be affecting attendance. For only $5 bucks per month you can watch almost all HBCU fcs games and a lot of the D2 games.

What was the point in starting this thread when details of changes had not been determined?   :shrug:

The U.S. and the Kurds have had a long standing alliance since WW II. Folks don't realize Kurdish fighters even assisted us in battles with the Nazis. Abandoning them now is beyond despicable.....but President Trump is probably just following Putin's orders.   :brickwall:

The Panthers are winning because of defense and Run CMC. The defense sacked Jamis seven times yesterday and intercepted him 5 times. Any qb will win under those circumstances.

This is a stand alone film that intentionally does not connect with DCEU or Batman.

Next time Capler, purchase your ticket REGULAR like and have some fun.  When you  hear a GIMMEE  back off.    :nono2:  Don't make a big deal over a GIMMEE you didn't GET. Not worth your time man .  Move on.

Actually, it's a very bad look for A&T.  They should have honored their promotion.  It's bait and switch on A&T.
It's not bait and switch.  It's a structural issue involving three different departments that happens a number of times at our schools.  The promotion is a part of (1)Athletics which is it's own department, the (2)Ticket Office is a department within the Finance Division, the (3)Vending is a different department within Finance. Every time our schools have an event that involves coordination of multiple departments in a way that is NON-ROUTINE... we can screw it up many times.

I think most schools operate in silos on game day and the right hand doesn't know or care what the left hand is doing.  There are so many things that have to happen on game day, anything that is new can throw a wrench in it.  If we continue to have large crowds then I'm not sure if there is one person responsible to coordinate all game day operations across every department but maybe there should be.

You're right. It is a very bad look, but it is not bait and switch.

I disagree.  The ticket manager is a member of the athletic department.  A&T has two people responsible for gameday operations.  This is 100% an athletic department screw up.  The AD should be held accountable.

A professionally ran sports operation would not have allowed this to happen.  They would have gone out of their way to make Capler whole.

Every organization makes errors. It's all about taking ownership, getting it corrected and making sure it doesn't happen again. We have perhaps the best AD in FCS so I'm confident this will get fixed if he has anything to do with it.

Long overdue.

So when do they start on the new press box?

I saw a little of this game and AAMU's tailback is money! That offensive line also went to work.

If Maynors offense ever reaches full potential the SWAC better watch out.

Good pics.
