It's definitely a day by day situation with them being in Lynchburg, VA.  I've recently passed by that school and have noticed very little activity.  Maybe Lynchburg's News and Advance could provide some information.


The response will be something like...'WHO?' :shrug:

Has anybody here on the board EVER visited the campus for a game? football? basketball? jacks?


 :no:

Yes, I've been to their campus. My wife's cousin used to go there and the campus is very, very small and the buildings are old. They are in desperate need of funds. They play their games at a local high school stadium and the campus is right down the street from Liberty University....like night and day.
Hell maybe we should just send them the check and schedule somebody else. Seriously.

It's the tale of two Baptist schools in the same town.  It's really three Baptist schools in Lynchburg with the University of Lynchburg (formerly Lynchburg College), which is doing pretty good for itself as well. Liberty is that right wing Christian school that was founded and is led by the Falwell family and has aggressively taken more funds than it needs, whereas VUL is the Black Baptist school that is led by the Virginia Black Baptist Convention who are still waiting on their White Jesus to lead them to the promise land, which is typical of most Black Baptist Churches throughout Virginia.

You are 100% wrong.  VUL has piss poor leadership.  Student body is significantly smaller than when Dr. Reavis was president.  The nepotism at VUL is rampant.  That lie you said about the Black Baptist churches . . .  I'm not even Baptist and I know it's a lie.  The Music Director of a Black Baptist church must have stolen the love of your life.

I didn't realize how small their enrollment is. Wow!

Not sure what the enrollment is now, but the last known numbers were 597 back in 2011.

No lie my friend, especially when you have Black Baptist churches having tons of revivals in order to survive.  The preachers are always preaching about tithing. And when a church goes to the Bank of the James for a construction loan, but doesn't need the entire amount to complete the project, so the preacher gets mad because me and another parishioner convince the Trustee Board to use what they need and give the rest back to the bank so that the church (mainly elderly people on fix income) wouldn't have such a large loan payment.  Do you need me to elaborate on how White folks control Lynchburg politically, especially through its so-called first Black female mayor who separated from her husband in order to keep separate the monies that they funnel to her through him by donating to his so-called federal funded mentor/anti-gang program in order to buy her vote.  Now the new initiative they are big on is the War On Homelessness, which one of my frat brothers was specifically hired in the City Manager's office to work on for the female Black mayor. If the Democrats take back control of the WH and the U.S. Senate, there will be plenty of monies allocated for Homeless programs.  I tell you, Falwell and them other White folks have you ninjas in Lynchburg some dizzy. By the way, the last Black mayor who is a Baptist preacher almost got federal time, but got off light with probationary rehabilitation when he was busted for the personal use of monies that the Late Rev. Jerry Falwell, Sr. had donated to his substance abuse program that was ran out if his church.  Basically, Falwell was buying his vote as well. Now that Falwell has purchased damn near every defunct strip mall and regular mall (River Ridge Mall) in Lynchburg, which their infrastructure was built and paid for with taxpayers monies, Lynchburg has basically become a Liberty University/Thomas Road Baptist Church community or a city ran by the Falwells through the church.

To be honest, the Falwells and them other White Baptist folks might have something to do with them being placed on HBCU schedules. VUL is accredited by some Christian based group out of Bedford County, VA. We have turn down smaller HBCUs with way more name recognition.  I'm sure WSSU would love to visit Baton Rouge someday.

And I believe I read somewhere that 85 of that number are undergraduate students, which mean most are preachers trying to get their doctoral degree and rest are young men there to play football.  Very sad situation in Lynchburg.

One tool I use to gauge a school is searching Youtube for student vlogs.They tell you the real deal. I only found one for VUL :tiptoe: :tiptoe:

Its literally a couple of buildings in a Black hood of Lynchburg., Sadly there is/was alot of hstory but its a school. Seems like almost a POnzi scheme to raise $$ to fund the school entirely.

It it was around the first two games VUL might give Southern a game for a half.

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>
