UNCG is easily in the top tier of mid major programs....IDK what basketball y'all follow outside of us...But UNCG is no lightweight. 30+ points better? Probably not.

It was not a good night for the SWAC of MEAC

https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/scoreboard/_/group/26

https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/scoreboard/_/group/16

The scores look like they normally do this time of year. The DI schools play us for practice until their real season starts. In HBCU DI conferences, the schools are generally about 2-15 before they start conference play. Not trying to be funny but that's the truth.

The thing is, UNCG is not a top DI school, they are not even a middle tier DI in basketball.

not true.  uncg was the "#1 seed" in the nit last year and the socon "runnerup".  they are no "slouch" by any means whatsoever.  ain't an hbcu anywhere in the country at any level that can beat them...

But why can't any HBCU beat them? That's the whole point. Its not like they are a top tear sports school. I bet you there are at least 20  DII schools that would beat them... maybe more.

Would?  Under what circumstances?

Name your top ten D2 programs that could defeat UNCG today....I made it easier with 10....I don’t think there are 20....

They would be a lower level DII program. If you mixed the CIAA and the MEAC into one conference, the standings would be very mixed. Many CIAA school near the top, while some of the MEAC would be near the bottom.

:shrug: so you base that on what?  one "season opening" game?  i mean, what are you?  a friggin "fortune teller" or "psychic"?  you got a "crystal ball" or somethin'?

what a dumb proclamation, after only 1 season opening game no less... :no:

Why do we keep doing this? Instead of discussing our problems head on, we change the flow of the conversation in an attempt to makes ourselves feel better about our pitiful situation. Now A&T is  bad because UNCG is so great. Over in the other forum, it is always, "more white people die from homicide than blacks, or more white people are on welfare...."   :brickwall:

If you are always the victim who blame others,  you will never do better. What I saw on the floor last night had very little to do with UNCG period. They simply did not have talent and experience. Granted UNCG's height and zone kept A&T from moving the ball smoothly, but UNCG had very little to do with missing all those shot and free throws. Strangly A&T's rebounding was not that bad. In a normal world, if you can rebound, you should be able to covert much that into points.

Not sure if any HBCU can beat UNCG, but I'm sure many D2 schools could beat A&T, and that is what really matters here.

Your right Professor, it was only one game against an esteemed white program in an elite conference. Things will improve  when we play colored schools in a mediocre conference. Might even make it to .500 by the end of the season.

I’m trying to care, I really am...but right now I’m focused on Football.

I’ll focus on Basketball once the last ball is snapped and we are deeper into the MEAC schedule. By that time our OOC schedule played in Nov will be a blur.

That's how Division 1 basketball works. The better schools play the lesser schools for warm up games to prepare for their conference. HBCUs play money games and D2s for warmups. The UNCG game is a home and home. They are a mid major and so are we. They are just better at the moment.

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.
