A&T wins Homecoming , beats DSU 44-3 , Now 6-0
« on: October 09, 2017, 10:34:34 AM »
GREENSBORO – And the band played on.

N.C. A&T danced past Delaware State 44-3 Saturday, a homecoming victory that came before a crowd so large it’s not clear that everyone got in.

Those that did were packed onto the track surrounding the field. Those that didn’t just watched through the fence along Sullivan Street.

The game was just part of the festivities Saturday. Some got up early to watch the parade. Some waited around to watch the band afterward. But more than 25,000 people packed into and around Aggie Stadium to watch what just might be the best A&T football team in school history.

Now 6-0 for the first time since 1993, the Aggies put away Del State in a two-minute blitz in the first quarter, a remarkable sequence that showed just how good this team is and how good it can yet be.

It happened so fast, the visiting Hornets didn’t know what hit them.

“We’re chasing excellence,” he said. “We’re chasing greatness. It not about just winning. It’s not about just beating people. It’s about chasing excellence and being as good as we can be.”

I still don't have a sense of how good  this Aggie team is. Through no fault of our own the nonconference opponents havent been very good plus two of the three Meac teams we've played still haven't won a game. In fact we may not play a team with a winning record unti we face the birds in the last regular season game. The biggest worry is not playing to the level of the competition.

I believe we will see the test of this team these next 2 weeks. We have FAMU and BCU, teams who usually play us tough. Should be a decent measuring stick regardless of records

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.
