He said the long-term goal is advancement from the NAIA into NCAA Division II and the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, a 13-school group chiefly made up of historically black colleges and universities.

Coach probably got a call from the president's office.  Don't get too excited.  We are in the business of educating students.

I hope the stadium project doesn't put the college in too much debt.

From what I’ve heard from very reliable sources, I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see EWC join the SIAC in the very near future. I have a good feeling about this school. They’re doing all the right things right now and leadership seems to really have a clear vision of what they want to accomplish.

With Savannah State returning I could see Allen and EWC also returning back to the SIAC. We are slowly getting back to the Old SIAC Conference from the old days. With them three our membership will increase to 16 members You can always come Home. :nod: But they would shake up the Football Divisions as the three of them are located on the Eastern side of the SIAC footprint. I could see this as a realignment in Football.

SIAC West
Miles
Tuskegee
Central State
Kentucky State
Lane
Albany State


SIAC East
Benedict
FVSU
Allen (If they decide to return)
Morehouse
Savannah State
EWC (If they decide to return)
CAU

Without Stillman in the west the Divisions will be uneven.

I think it's very nice that the city of Jacksonville, Florida is giving $8.3 million to EWC... :clap: :clap: :clap: A lot of other cities should take note instead of trying to bring down a school. Other surrounding Cities and Municipalities will leave you(Albany) in the dust(see growing cities in Georgia) if you keep(dwelling in negativity)arguing and bickering amongst yourselves.  Colleges in small cities can mean so much to a community. For example, Take UGA, Florida, Alabama, Auburn, GA Southern away from those cities and what do you have? The economic impact will be devastating if they were to lose those schools.

Jacksonville is the largest city in Florida (in terms of city limits) so I wouldn’t call that a “small city” but I do think you bring up a good point. Unfortunately, it’s rare that we see cities step up and support an HBCU...and a private one at that.

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.
