At this point people who still ask that question are both ignorant and lazy. 1) You have to be living under a rock to be a part of the HBCU world and still not know the four major conferences...but even if you don’t know then 2) it’s far too easy to just take a moment to do a quick google search and you’ll have your answer. In 2020, not knowing is a choice and I’ve just about run out of patience with the willfully ignorant.

I think you might have misunderstood the confusion.  It's not a question about what teams are in the CIAA, but what games count for the conference record.

The CIAA announced back in the summer that every school would play the other 11 schools twice, thus giving a 22 game conference schedule.  It looks like the Chancellors/Presidents didn't officially approve the change so it reverted back to the 16 game conference schedule, where a team plays the teams from the other division only once.  Problem is at that point the schools had already finalized their schedules.  So now for example a school from the Southern Division is playing all the Northern Division schools twice, but only one of those respective games counts as a conference game.  So trying to figure out which game out of the 2 counts is where the confusion has hit.

Isn't it usually designated on your schedule which conference games COUNT as a conference game?

Egg on my face. Disregard that rant.

I seem to remember one time CIAA football games would be conference games for one school and out of conference games for the other school.
Failing to plan is planning to fail.

 :no: :)

It appears that the games that count are the one that would have been scheduled this year before "22."  So Bowie was due to come to us this year, so that game counted, tomorrow's(today) won't.  So to balance it out, which Southern team will play a Northern schedule, or will they manipulate that too?

The Ciaa has had that confusion for a while now.

You see that y'all are going North for everything except football next year?

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>
