I am glad we are not playing in it. I do not know the details of it. I do not know who attempted to work it out; but I am glad Albany State said NO.  It was a stupid arrangement from the beginning and never should have been discussed or brought to the table.  

I do not think there is no love lost between Albany State and the SIAC and it has been that way for awhile. Albany State has felt slighted by the SIAC for awhile now, and I would not be surprised down the line if ASU does not leave the SIAC, our current President is not with the BS and mediocrity of backwardness and unprofessionalism.
It is What It is.....It will BE what it WILL be....

Not so fast Mr. Campbell you are the one who ultimately approves the schedule of the football team ahead of the season so it's your fault you didn't schedule the requisite amount of games in the first place.  It's unsat to sit up and just blame ASU for not playing the game knowing full well they are salty they lost to FVSU for a chance to play in the title game.  Just keeping it real!

Statement regarding November 12th football contest

Nov. 07, 2016 Football
TUSKEGEE, Ala. | Albany State University informed Tuskegee University last night that they will not honor their agreement to play the Golden Tigers on November 12. During negotiations last week, both Albany State and Fort Valley State University agreed to host Tuskegee depending on which team lost their game on November 5.

"I am very disappointed in Albany State's decision not to honor their agreement," Tuskegee University Athletic Director Curtis Campbell said. "As members of the SIAC, we must be able to trust the word of a member institution."

Both institutions (ASU and FVSU) were aware of the importance of this game to Tuskegee, who must now secure another opponent at this very late date, while also appealing the denied waiver request by the NCAA.

Tuskegee University will release the location and time of Saturday's game as soon as all necessary arrangements have been finalized.

For more information on Tuskegee University athletics, follow us on Twitter/Snapchat/Instagram @MyTUAthletics and like on Facebook.


 

I'm not surprised at all. There is nothing in it for ASU plus IMO I think Albany thought they were going to beat FVSU.  TU looks bad, the conference looks bad and now Albany St looks bad. Whomever made the decision at Albany to play the game should have talked to the football team ahead of time.

I'm not sorry that we didn't cough up $30k to play TU at home. With this being decided in the late hour there was no way to market this game and make back our $30k. It's just simple economics. Unless Tuskgee wanna cough up $30k.

IMO that doesn't look like a guaranteed win. But you got the game now.

It's not a guaranteed win but I would rather see Tuskegee play a tough opponent that they have not played going into the playoffs. It helps VSU with their strength of schedule on the outside chance that they can make the playoffs though not likely(They weren't in regional rankings last week).  The AD needs to be gone no matter what.

Folks, we can't blame AlbSU for our incompetence!! Our AD needs to be fired. Not only that, it shows the incompetence on the conference level.

VSU definitely won't be a guaranteed win.
