Not awesome,  we have 2 years to switch all of our unis and gear over.  The stipend we get is peanuts.

If your school ever had the nation's longest losing streak, you can't be considered a football power.

At least someone sees it lol...conference went with what was best for them vs allowing individual schools to find their best deal.

I think it helps the schools with the smallest budgets compete with the larger schools in obtaining uniforms. Otherwise, the larger schools would have an financial advantage if each school pursued their own deal. Creating uniform parity is good for the conference overall. This is only my guess and I have know inside information to support this.

I can agree with this logic. However, something an institution that has a national brand and can secure more for themselves should have that opportunity regardless of the financial impact of the other schools.

I see why this is good for the smaller schools. I don’t see why it’s good for the larger ones.

I agree, but there are maybe three schools in the CIAA (WSSU, VSU and Bowie) that might have an outside chance in getting a better deal on their own. I would hate to see the poor get poorer while the not so poor make some small ground. Its not like the CIAA has schools with National brands. Outside of the HBCU world, know-one knows who we are.
