It will have to grow into a huge event like the CIAA Tournament. Folks fly in from all over regardless of who is playing.

If you are referring to the CIAA tournament you cannot compare the two.  Folks come to Charlotte during the CIAA tournament and they don't even know there is a basketball tournament going on.  Most of those folks have no ties to any CIAA school or HBCU.  People don't even go to the games anymore during the tournament.  They just came to Charlotte to party.  I have said for the past several years that the CIAA needs to move out of Charlotte and back to a city where fans can come watch basketball again.

They are the same. The CIAA Tournament games are packed Friday and Saturday nights.  We can make this an event on the same scale as the CIAA Tournament. Progressive thinking and proper planning will get the job done.

DRUMMA1,

I don't know what you consider a packed house, but the CIAA has not sold out in years.  I have spoken with long time CIAA  fans who live in Charlotte and still attend the tournament.   They have told me that the tournament in not the same.  They said for the championship game last year the lower bowl nowhere near full.  Very few people were on the second level.   Poor leadership from the commissioner and presidents has caused this.  Thousands upon thousands of people come to town and never go to a game or even near the arena.  HE CIAA WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN.   2 -3 generations of students were forgotten about getting them excited about attending the tournament.

Almost Drumma,
 
but don't take the comment too seriously.  The people who I was there with there were four of us.  Two from Savannah State, one from Central, and one from Howard demanded we go on the Alcorn side because their fans were way more crunk and they provided the type of game day atmosphere which made it fun.  But boy they were good ole country folk.  Nothing wrong with that is there? 

The other observation was that many of the MEAC supporters from institutions other than A&T wore A&T colors while many of the SWAC supporters still wore there individual institutions colors. 

Understandable. I get that same country vibe at NC HBCU games.

DRUMMA1,

You left North Carolina to go to college in Mississippi and you became country.   I have heard on you tube clips several Southern U fans chanting "COUNTRY!!!  COUNTRY! !!!!" when the boom marches into your the stadium playing Get Ready.   As Tom Joyner says everytime you all play that song 0the JSU fans act like it is the time they have heard that song.   :no:    :crazy:

Ok folks let's be honest and keep it real. There is only one great city in the south period, and everyone else is just here. The only city that matters is Atlanta. The rest of you all are just taking up land. This is why the  owl will be successful. Everything in and about Atlanta the gateway to the south is excellent!

Ha!   :lol: :lol:

In Atlanta's defense most of the ones who think they have "arrived" come from everywhere else. The ones who are truly from "A-Lana" are good smart down to earth people who work hard and know how to have a good time. :nod:

Jackson is about the size of Greensboro and it's more "urban" than it is country.

"Get Ready" is our theme song, similar to NCCU's rift chant ("Take Your Time"). You sound like a low key fan.

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.
