UMES and Coppin won’t be going anywhere and neither will add football. If anything is to change I’m sure the MEAC will be aggressive in looking to add both Bowie State and Virginia State.

Why would we move up and barely be competitive?  We're both making names for ourselves in D2.  How many winning seasons have the Bison had since moving to D1?  Some of us are caught up on D1 and that is not where it's at in my opinion.  A good number of the MEAC schools operate their athletic programs on a D2 budget and it shows.  We really don't play money games at the D2 level...we go out and play the games.  Just take a look at MEAC basketball...the majority of the schools get paid to get whipped.  At the D2 level, we play the games and our records speak for themselves.  Also, the only schools in the MEAC that should be there are NCCU and NC A&T.  They have proven they can win.  Lastly, in the CIAA, we play to win National Championships, not a bowl game.

I doubt that it will be long before the Bison turn the corner. Like Howard, several schools in the MEAC are National Brands. There’s a reason why women are able to purchase Howard Apperal at Victoria Seceret. Since moving up our enrollment has stayed at over 8,500 students and endowment has more than doubled to not being well over 700M. With that being said, Football and Men’s BB haven’t been a consistent other than a hand full or seasons. But that is mainly because of stiff admissions standards and in adequate funding at the D1 level. But things look to be swinging in the right direction under great administrative leadership and solid recruiting within those programs. Coach London looks to be the real deal and his staff has stayed put after a phenomenal season. The next ten months in Washington, DC may be the most important to the University and it will make or break the vision of athletics for the future.

I don't think Norfolk State is going anywhere. I don't think there fans would buy into the move to the CIAA or the Big South.

Tell me, why everyone keep bringing up NSU? Did they make an announcement about thinking about dropping back? I havent heard anything.

They should drop back to be competitive.  How many winning seasons of football have they had since leaving the CIAA?  Also, they should come back when a D3 school and a D2 school defeats you in basketball.

In basketball the MEAC is basically a DII conference. How many CIAA and SIAC schools would be competitive in the MEAC? CAU, The House, VSU, Smith, Shaw and a few others would be in the mix.

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>
