A few of our alumni were just discussing this.  JSU needs to get back to Chicago asap.

I wish JSU would rotate our home games with AAMU and UAPB in Chicago.  All 3 schools have strong alumni bases there and neither of us are generating high attendance at home when we play each other.

Well, that's cheap. How does he expect it draw then? I hope he's doing some serious promoting.

that's all...   ???

Have been trying to get the ear of some of our people on the Hill about this as well ...

We need to play someone like you, or a SWAC school with a similar strong base up there within the next 2-3 years.   The two schools should be able to walk away with at least $1M EACH based upon the volume of the butts we can put in Soldier Field alone ... let alone the residual income it would generate for the community!

Additionally ...

We need to play one of you in LA in 2019 as well ... and christen the New Barn they're about to build for the Rams as well.

Does this classic draw a lot of local support.

It does, but not like it would if it is was one of the SWAC schools. They should be bringing in Jackson State versus whomever because the CHI is flooded is with them. That's like their pipeline. And also being Sweetness being a Jacksonian and Chicago Bears, it's an even more of a following.

that's all...   :tiptoe:

This is as far back as I  can go with game day statistics. I too wonder what a match up with Florida A & M (Only if they bring the 100) or JSU and Southern would draw.

2015  Howard vs Morgan State      21,046

2014  Central State vs Morehouse  33,194

2013  Central State vs Morehouse  32,123

2012   Albany State vs Kentucky State  ???

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>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
