You are correct Aggie D.  Those other two are  :crazy: if they think North Carolina and the northern schools have a strong desire to play SWAC teams.  Fans like us, maybe, but we are the minority.  These games will also be murder on our budgets.

Aggie D, do you think people would want to see a Tennessee State, Tuskegee or SWAC school come to Greensboro?

Tennessee State, maybe ... Tuskegee or any other SWAC school, no.  There are a host of CIAA schools around Greensboro that make more sense for us to play if we are going to play a DII school, which we have done.  And fans show up in relatively modest numbers for "popular" MEAC schools we play on a regular basis like FAMU, Hampton, Howard, Norfolk State, and South Carolina State ... what makes you think they will show up in even larger numbers for SWAC schools that are further away and with whom we have no history?  If energy and resources are going to be used/spent on increasing attendance it makes more sense to me to 1.) continue winning and 2.) build up our fan base rather than be concerned with scheduling opponents that may attract more of their crowd to Aggie Stadium.      


Not to put to fine a point on it. But if you don't think playing against the conference that has led the entire fcs division in attendance since it's existence is going to help in your home attendance, I hope your aren't responsible for anyone business account.

Again, why would I want to improve attendance with the fan base from other schools?  It makes more sense to me to put effort into improving attendance by building the Aggie fan base.  
Agreed.

 :lol: :lol: :lol:

So says the guy whose 95% of  largest  attended games come from competition against a swac school

Receipts. Link them.



Buddy only some youngster doesn't know the history FAMU has with the swac. So if you want receipts ask your parents or grand parent or look them up yourself.  :lol:  receipts  :lmao:  

Do you realize that FAMU and Southern at one time had the longest intra-conference rival in college football period?  Hell at one time FAMU played more games against swac opponents then they did the entire meac. It may still be that way if I look up the numbers.




Less talk more facts/links. I'm 95% sure that you're just yappin as usual. :read:

Either you don't understand how building a fan base works or you don't understand your own answer. If there isn't a product on the field that your fanbase wants to see (aka another school) they don't come.

Again if you don't think playing against the conference that has led the entire fcs division in attendance since it's existence is going to help in your home attendance, I hope your aren't responsible for anyone business account.

The product on the field Aggies want to see is Aggie Football at its best - winning.  The only reason another school should factor into the equation for increasing our home attendance is scheduling an equally competitive opponent and winning.  It should have nothing to do with how many opposing team fans they can bring into our house.        

And yes, the SWAC has historically done relatively well in home attendance numbers but I don't think that would translate into higher home attendance for N.C. A & T if we played schools from the deep South.  Aggies in general especially casual Aggie game day fan attendees are not extra energized to attend a game against Alabama A & M, Alabama State, Alcorn, Arkansas Pine Bluff, Mississippi Valley, Prairie View, or Texas Southern.  Evan the more popular East Coast SWAC schools like Grambling, Southern, and Jackson State, to a lesser degree, would not be any more attractive to Aggies than FAMU, Hampton, Howard, Norfolk State, and South Carolina State and we see what the home attendance numbers are when we play those schools.          
Which speaks volumes for your fan base. I'm confused though if there is such a lack of interest in playing SWAC schools why then are your fans showing up in Atlanta????

Because it's a classic or bowl game and hmmm ..., Atlanta.
So you are saying your fans are not interested in playing the SWAC at home but will travel hundreds of miles to Atlanta at greater expense.  Say that aloud several times and see if it still makes sense. Hell I bet you would have more fans in your stadium playing Southern, Jackson State and Skegee than you would Central.  :shrug:

Still bumpin gums but no facts.

How much of an uptick should we expect from our Txsu season opener in Bragg? Should we attribute it to our fans' familiarity with this swac opponent or to Txsu's outstanding traveling base? :lol:

The amount of people in North Carolina that are familiar with Jackson State University is greater than the amount of people in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana who have heard of NCCU. We have a bigger name and brand recognition.

I'm not trying to get into a pissing contest. Until you North Carolina schools start scheduling schools your fans and communities actually want to see, your home attendance will continue to resemble a tent revival.

BTW, you can't compare scheduling Shaw, St. Aug or JCSU to Tuskegee, Albany, Ft. Valley or any other D2 school with a name and a large traveling fan base.

I think you have gone too far to say that JSU name recognition is so much bigger than NCCU. I totally disagree - I think we both have our own markets and different markets but not any greater than NCCU overall.  And brands can include both athletics, academics, traditions, alums etc.  If you look at many of the academic polls and rankings NCCU typically ranks higher than JSU. Let's be careful about comparing brands unless you look at the whole picture.
Clearly JSU has/is doing some good things.

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>
