that's reasonable because it does affect the other members competitive standing.

But realistically it wouldn't pass a vote if that's what's needed.  Because it would eventually lead to the MEAC moving to DII.

Let's see how Coppin State does in the regular season. They may give other more "competitive" teams a few "Ls" this season.

Well, I think Savannah State finally figured out the right choice!   You cannot gain respect with a schedule designed to lose the first 15 games. :nod:

Did Coppin lose all 15 games against D-1 P5 competition?
Failing to plan is planning to fail.

absolutely not.  this is how many schools are able to keep the lights on in athletics

The money teams receive from these basketball money games go into the Schools General Fund and don't stay with Athletics. Therefore, this endeavor is helping fund the entire school budget.

This is not fair.  In this case, a lot of money games should be stopped, especially state schools. The money should be used in sports only mainly basketball.

Right.  This would only be fair if the general fund subsidize athletics somehow.  I need a better understanding of college athletic funding.  I always thought athletic departments operated like enterprises.

Common ya'll. These aren't money games. Most of our (HBCU) early season loses are to lower level teams in our divisions. These lower level schools play real money games and lose by 50 points. Then those same, lower level teams,  beat us by 50 points. Overall, we are not real DI schools... in any sport.

If there isn't a return game, a guarantee is paid to the visiting team, period.

For example, UMES got a $40,000 check from Radford (Big South) for a game this year. That money went to UMES' general fund and the coach from UMES added an item to the contract that allowed Redford to pay for the basketball team's iPad allocation which was $10,000.

So the school got  a $40,000 check and the basketball got $10K in technology.

Not at HBCUs.  You're confusing white schools with HBCUs.
Fayetteville State by choice. Bronco by the Grace of GOD.
