May as well because HBCU TV games are boring. It's one of those things you have to attend live, tailgate, drink, hang out with your friends and listen to folk cut the fool/talk smack in the crowd.  Other than that, the band is the next best thing going.

This should boost the ratings. Let's just hope they do a better job of scheduling better matchups this year.

Which ones? Gridiron or bands?

Gridiron but preferably both. BCU, A&T, SCSU, and FAMU need to be on a weekly rotation. Those will be best representatives for the conference (football, crowd, band) at this point.

ESPN is going to base their selection of games on the quality of the teams that are playing.  Whenever NCCU has had a game on ESPN in Durham we have had near sellout crowds at OKR.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
