Only folks i have seen are from Mississippi. JSU and Acorn folks at our Hotel.

Met some HBCU alums from JCSU and ECSU at Bougaloo Lounge last night, but they live in ATL.

Prive for the party last night was just local folks.

I wouldn't compare this to CIAA, nut it's been a good time so far.




Let some folks tell it. :lol:

My partner who is an Alcor n alum is at the game but he flew in this morning. He raved about the atmosphere pre-game.

How many MEAC fans (not from Atlanta) did you run into?  On TV the A&T crowd looked real sparse.  The TV cameras were on the visitor's side of the stadium, so you got to see the A&T side most of the game.  The Alcorn side looked like a real good crowd.

Slope, I did see a guy from Morgan State but that was it.  The Alcorn side had a lot of SWAC folks, especially from JSU.  It would have been nice to have seen more fans on the Aggies' side but they were very vocal.

I think this event will blossom into something very special once everyone gets on board to support.

You know aggies are always loud and uncouth, LOL.   In the past these bowl games have been created.  They start strong and then die out.  I am not sure MEAC fans will ever get out board like the SWAC folks.  We forget about football after Thanksgiving.

I was in section 246. The dome looked great from my perspective. Acorn and the SWAC had a deep section.

Two different cultures.  Both conferences have their weakness and strengths.  One of the strengths that SWAC has is attendance and they play in bigger games.  They are used to games like this.

SWAC love is awesome.  I hope such catches on in the MEAC.  This game may be what we need to make it happen...

From my vantage point it definitely looked like Alcorn outnumbered the A&T fans.

Did a brief podcast, to recap the atmosphere, the game, and our experience: https://soundcloud.com/the-rome-brown-show/celebration-bowl-recap

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>
