#1wildcatfan: From a FINANCIAL CARD CARRYING ACTIVE  AWARD WINNING MEMBER OF the ASU National Alumni Association

you sir/madam are an ASU hater and that is that. Your post details that.  Your assessment of the facts are laughable at most.  Civil discord is welcome and ok, but to blatantly to state untruths is a no no.

The Merger
Yes, there are some Alumni who voiced displeasure with the Merger, but these are the same alumni, who has been collecting money for over two decades to sue the BOR about the unfair treatment of HBCUs in GA, these are the same alumni who have taken our HBCU Alumni Associations hostage, these are the same ALUMNI who STUCK in the 70s and 80s, relying on 50s/60s tactics. These are the same ALUMNI standing at the GATE blocking young alums from coming and taking leadership roles in the National Alumni Association, so be careful of the regurgitated information you provide. Here at ASU the majority of us are mindful of the BOR and know the BOR quite well. We anticipated a merger from the HBCU world, and quite a few knew that it would probably be ASU and Darton. The fear most had was that it would a DARTON favored merger. It was not. ASU is the school name, the school colors, the school mascot, the school logo in other words...come January 1, 2017 Darton will no longer exist. If you want to know the TRUTH of the merger, below is the Consolidate Prospectus submitted to the Southern Region Associations of Colleges and Schools (SACS).  

I really do suggest reading this document, it give you a great insight on the Consolidation Aspect andAlbany State really does come out on top in this consolidation

http://www.consolidation.asurams.edu/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/ASU_DSC_Consolidation_Prospectus_2016.pdf

This SIAC/Tuskegee debacle.

 1) This is not an Albany State problem or issue. 2) This "Agreement" was announced by TU AD, and not the other schools. So no one really knows the details. It is clear that no contracts were signed. 3) Was it an agreement with one school and the assumption that the other would follow through or was it with the SIAC 4) I said from the beginning that the SIAC better be careful on how it handles this or risk showing favoritism and lo and behold that is what has happened. The SIAC as a conference cannot afford to lose a Member School such as Albany State, over this mess and the likelihood of that is real possibility. NO school should be dragged through the mud over such as this. This unhealthy balance of State Schools and Private schools in the SIAC is not good. State schools have rules that private schools do not. 4) From my understanding there was nothing concrete per ASU and the actual players said no and that they would not participate in the game---no players no game 5) TU AD should be held accountable on the entire situation and his remarks made to the press.  6) The SIAC should have stepped in cleaned up this mess, yet so far they have remained silent and on the sidelines.  7) Where does the SIAC go after this mess?

And if people have that much of a problem attending ASU because of the HBCU status, they can go over to Tifton to ABAC, up to Americus to GA Southwestern, or down to Valdosta State.

Ramese,

The private school vs state school hound does not hunt. The rules of the conference govern everyone no matter which. So please stop THAT nonsense... :no:

My interpretation of the ASU alum's comments are that since there are more private schools in the conference, 10, versus, the 4 state supported institutions, at times, the interests are not the same. The private schools can build a coalition and easily out vote the members that are public.

Actually yes it does hunt, and has been an ISSUE for awhile with the State Schools.  However, I do not think it is the issue in this situation.
 It is not nonsense though. The SIAC is slighted toward the Private Schools. We just have to agree to disagree on this matter.

What's interesting is your dumb behind rooting for Virginia State in this avatar. You are a perfect example of the point of member institution not supporting one another outside of the conference. It's asinine and frankly, sad.

that's all...    :tiptoe:

Albany State isn't to blame totally for Tuskegee's predicament, but they definitely devalued their word. If I'm Skegee I'm running up the score on them in every sport!

I'm just curious. How is the SIAC slighted toward Private Schools?

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.
