PVAMU look really good against Rice....IMHO should have won that game. If they (PVAMU) play with the same intensity and efficiency NCCU is in for a long afternoon.

Boy, IF prognostications could win games- no need to play them.  Prairie View certainly is NO slouch team particularly in view of last weeks game against FBS Rice University. PVAM has been tested live, NCCU will be today.  PVAM prior game should give them an up  and they have a capable team to contend for the SWAC championship or surely in the chase.  NCCU will know today what direction we will be traveling this year.  Eastmans inauguration as coach is here and this is HIS team.  Respectfully I can't call this until 5 minutes left in this game.   TALK IS CHEAP!  PREDICTIONS   :shrug:  YOU GOT TO PLAY THE GAME.    :nono2:  IF both teams bring their "A" game, which both sides hope will be the scenario,   ;D ;D ;D and hope its me with the grin.    :shrug:  I call it a toss up at this point.  IMHO PVAM advantage is being able to tweak mis plays and corrections from live play. NCCU live action is self contained scrimmages,  only.

I don't think we are the calibre of a FBS team like Rice.  PVAM has speed and receivers with a quick release QB that can spread it to all receivers and backs and capable of runs too.  We have lived off of our defense and QB needs to better spread the ball to his receivers.  Yes we have a good team but have not been tested.   PVAM has been and it may show.

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>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
