Man, ya'll been runnin' this UMES and Coppin Doody-ka-kah in football for a minute...That ain't happenin' (at least no time in the forseeable future. I'd love to see it happen, but they have been trying for so long and not gettin' anywhere very fast. They were both lucky to get club-level football going).

....So anyway,  y'all might wanna stop dreamin.'

UMES and Coppin could drop down and not miss a beat with no football......tbh
if you are correct and Chowan will still be a football affiliate
we only need one BB school
so UMES or Coppin (who has the best overall sports program?)

They aren't gonna do that because they have too many opportunities to play other D1 basketball schools for that paycheck. Coppin State had a death row schedule a few years ago before MEAC games began.

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.

Oooh kaaay! Didnt know bout them  losses. Damn NSU! Still does not mean they leaving. Maybe they should think about it?

I found out that we've had injuries to key players, which contributed to our losses to those D2 and D3 teams. Our record in the MEAC right now is 7-4. I would say that we are competitive now! So,,,,if we SHOULD just so decide to drop back down to D2 and the CIAA, yall will be the first to know!  :nod: :hugs:

How many winning seasons has Norfolk State had since joining the MEAC in football and basketball?  Come on back home, be competitive and renew the rivalries...you won't beat us though. ;D

No. How about Va State just move on UP to the MEAC. Yall got the facilities, and you all know how to win in the CIAA. So bring it to the MEAC, and let's see how yall would do! Oh, and we will whup that a--, just like we used to before we started playing yall again last year!  :nod:

We are just fine at Division 2 where we are winning.  Also, we don't need the D1 title to make us the best HBCU in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  Please answer my question... How many winning seasons have you guys had in football and basketball since joining the MEAC twenty years ago?  This should tell you whether the choice was right for you to move up to D1.

Also, I think you moved up to D1 after Hampton did in 1995 just to keep up with the Joneses.   

I don't know. I haven't kept count. I do know this: We couldn't have won the MEAC, play and beat #2 seeded Missouri in the first round of the NCAA Tournament if we were still D2. Hampton couldn't beat Iowa State in the Big Dance if Hampton was still D2. Coppin State couldn't beat South Carolina in the Big Dance if Coppin was still D2. My point is, we are here, exactly where we want to be. And our move up to FCS/D1 was a long range plan implemented by former President Wilson, so if Hampton jumped up before us, fine,,,,,,so what? We are here, and we're good!

Those wins were once in a blue moon opportunities.  When you decide to come back home, we will welcome you back with open arms and leave the light on for you.

Oh, we know!  :lmao: :hugs: :popcorn:

The paycheck still isn't helping the program at the D1 level.

I would imagine it's helping keep the other olympic sports at the D1 level, along with Title IX requirements.

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 highly doubt Bowie will be making a move anytime soon to the MEAC. I heard folks talking about that 5-7 years ago. Ain't jack diddly happened. I think we are good where we are.

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.
