 :lmao:keeping it 100, i would not play A&T anytime soon. We got a hot coaching mess, a hot AD mess and possibly a hot chancellor mess (pure speculation on that last one). The point is we have to get our house in order before getting drug down the field! I personally could care less about playing A&T but we have some who just cant avoid wanting that game. Now is definately not the time unless you care nothing about winning the game. If you dont have a reasonable chance of winning no need to play. The pay day is not worth the reputational damage imho. :nono2:

Personally, I'm not thrilled in the least bit about playing NCCU, especially not at O'Kelly. I'd have rather seen a game scheduled against SC State or Norfolk. Just my personal opinion.

It’s funny how arrogant people get when they are doing good. We Rams were arrogant when we were beating the brakes off schools a few years ago. Now the Aggies are acting as if their run will never end. One day in the next few years, when they are no longer winning, a home and home with WSSU will look good from a revenue and community perspective. Regardless of the division affiliation WSSU, NCA&T, and NCCU are jointed at the hips and they should share the wealth fairly because of these ties. When they see how much fun a game with us and Central will be, they will want some of that fun. Its guaranteed money. I guarantee we will be playing both schools at BB&T Field in Winston within the next five years.  :nod:

Really?  A moment of self reflection for you.....oh, I fondly remember a few of your posts stating your third stringers were better than the SIAC All Conference Team players.

How does that humble pie tastes these days?

Give those folks a call to see if they would play yall.  If not, enjoy that $50,000+ check coming from NCCU. My brother is a Ram, so yes, I am looking forward to this.  The last time didn't go to well for me and he always remind me of that.

When you beat schools like Charlotte, ECU, App St, etc......playing Winston just doesn't move the needle anymore :shrug:

I doubt it. WSSU wants a home and home. And until that changes , we won't play. Honestly don't think A&T will be playing any D2 schools for awhile as those wins don't help with FCS at large bids


A.  It should be home and home


B.  Win your conference and it won't matter.

An FCS is not gonna play a D2 in a home-home site series. It used to not be a problem back in the day, but that's not how it's done now. This game will never happen unless WSSU administrators wise up and toe the line!  :nod: :lol:


Again sir it has never been the norm for D1 to play at D2.  I won't name the exceptions to that.  I'm betting that had y'all not built Price, AND VSU had a bigger venue that would have stayed home & home. However all you have to do is look up the attendance at the last games we played and you just might note that our facility can hold the crowd. If it were TRULY a road game, then you and your Aggie brethren would have a good point.


Since you are only an Aggie fan, I will ask you to survey the folks that attended the women's game between us this year. This game is what brought me back to the debate.  You may note I didn't type one word about it last year.

We would have built Price eventually regardless because ODU would have eventually fielded a football team, so D2 VSU will always play FCS NSU @ NSU unless VSU moves up to D1-FCS football.
Yes, but the point is that you built it big, so you can host pretty much anyone you play outside a Power 5 school.  VSU vs NSU HAS to be played outside Petersburg.

We built Price Stadium big based off the football crowds NSU had at ODU's Forman Field, and the fact that I believe I future plans included moving up to D1 in all sports except football, and D1-AA or FCS for football.
Failing to plan is planning to fail.

FCS is D1 football.  Football is the only D1 collegiate sport that is divided into two divisions or two series (FBS and FCS). One is the bowl series and the other one is the championship series, but they are both D1 football.

Yeah, but it was called D1-AA before it was called FCS, which is why I noted the term D1-AA. I know it's D1 football; the only difference is FBS offers 85 max football scholarships, and FCS offers 63 max scholarships.

Yep and FBS was called D1-A. Same thing, different name. Since football was the only sport divided into two categories at the D1 level, I guess they had to add the term 'football' as in Football Bowl Series (FBS) and Football Championship Series (FCS) so that the other D1 sports wouldn't be confused as part of the two different categories in D1 football.

It's not hypocritical.  The game at Winston doesn't normally draw nearly as well as in Durham.  When we play y'all it's a packed house no matter the venue.

So that's A&T fault too huh ? My point is that you accept less money and terms from NCCU but demand different from the Aggies. That's the hypocritical part

No it's not your fault. The difference is (again) the stadium size.  We can only fill so many seats at NCCU, but we can fill a lot more at BB&, therefore we get less from them than we ask from you.

Again sir it has never been the norm for D1 to play at D2.  I won't name the exceptions to that.  I'm betting that had y'all not built Price, AND VSU had a bigger venue that would have stayed home & home. However all you have to do is look up the attendance at the last games we played and you just might note that our facility can hold the crowd. If it were TRULY a road game, then you and your Aggie brethren would have a good point.


Since you are only an Aggie fan, I will ask you to survey the folks that attended the women's game between us this year. This game is what brought me back to the debate.  You may note I didn't type one word about it last year.

We would have built Price eventually regardless because ODU would have eventually fielded a football team, so D2 VSU will always play FCS NSU @ NSU unless VSU moves up to D1-FCS football.
Yes, but the point is that you built it big, so you can host pretty much anyone you play outside a Power 5 school.  VSU vs NSU HAS to be played outside Petersburg.

We built Price Stadium big based off the football crowds NSU had at ODU's Forman Field, and the fact that I believe I future plans included moving up to D1 in all sports except football, and D1-AA or FCS for football.
  Yes. Therefore there is no reason for you to play in Petersburg.

:lmao:keeping it 100, i would not play A&T anytime soon. We got a hot coaching mess, a hot AD mess and possibly a hot chancellor mess (pure speculation on that last one). The point is we have to get our house in order before getting drug down the field! I personally could care less about playing A&T but we have some who just cant avoid wanting that game. Now is definately not the time unless you care nothing about winning the game. If you dont have a reasonable chance of winning no need to play. The pay day is not worth the reputational damage imho. :nono2:

  When the series first stopped it was because WSSC had no chance to beat them.  When it resumed WSSU had "no chance to beat them," until we hammered them in G'boro no less.  When KB took over, we had "no chance" to beat them until the last two games before the second stoppage. When it resumed again, we "had no chance...…."

I know both schools got paid every time we played since the first resurrection of the game. Who knows; the "hot mess" might rally the troops. Our rep cannot be damaged by losing to them, just our pride. In their minds THEIRS can.  That's why they don't want to play us.  THE BS about the home field is just that. If we kicked their behinds every time they came to BG then they'd have something to fear.  In fact we lost to FOBBS in Winston. :o :o

So Aggies I offer this compromise since Winston is such a scary place: Four games, 2 in BB&T, 1 in BG, and 1 at a neutral site.  Or 3 at BB&T and 1 neutral....................

That’s OK, we good rams...if y’all won’t take $50K for a trip to BB&T Stadium then Aggies will pass.

We in a great place. We don’t need this game. It’s pretty obvious that the rams really need and want this game.

We need to focus our efforts on winning the conference and making another trip to the Celebration Bowl.

Good luck in the CIAA.

I have to agree with this aggie right here.  Rams, I will see you guys in Durham!  Looking forward to it.  Don't think we are coming to Winston though.
Whether great or small, victory is victory!

It’s funny how arrogant people get when they are doing good. We Rams were arrogant when we were beating the brakes off schools a few years ago. Now the Aggies are acting as if their run will never end. One day in the next few years, when they are no longer winning, a home and home with WSSU will look good from a revenue and community perspective. Regardless of the division affiliation WSSU, NCA&T, and NCCU are jointed at the hips and they should share the wealth fairly because of these ties. When they see how much fun a game with us and Central will be, they will want some of that fun. Its guaranteed money. I guarantee we will be playing both schools at BB&T Field in Winston within the next five years.  :nod:

Really?  A moment of self reflection for you.....oh, I fondly remember a few of your posts stating your third stringers were better than the SIAC All Conference Team players.

How does that humble pie tastes these days?

Yes, I remember those days... it was fun as hell!  :nod: But that is what sports is all about... having fun. If we ever return to that level, I would talk even bigger smack. And yes, our third team would have beaten the SIACs All Conference Team.  :shrug:

Wondering if WSSU will ever play N.C. A&T again in football?

Yeah, if they get the chicken out of the administration.

I doubt it. WSSU wants a home and home. And until that changes , we won't play. Honestly don't think A&T will be playing any D2 schools for awhile as those wins don't help with FCS at large bids


A.  It should be home and home


B.  Win your conference and it won't matter.

 If it should be a home and home , then why aren't you playing NCCU at home in 2021? This is a one game deal. Seem hypocritical to me


It's not hypocritical.  The game at Winston doesn't normally draw nearly as well as in Durham.  When we play y'all it's a packed house no matter the venue.

So that's A&T fault too huh ? My point is that you accept less money and terms from NCCU but demand different from the Aggies. That's the hypocritical part
Its a bigger game between WSSU vs NCA&T (22,000 -28,000), than between WSSU vs NCCU (10,000). SO the payout should be larger.
