Da hell that got to do with A&T. It’s so sad to see the once proud rams begging us AGGIES for a game again.

You wanna play A&T, you know the terms and where the game will be.

Now that we will be playing in the Big South, the three non conference games well be scheduled at a premium.

A&T is clearly not event thinking about restoring the rivalry with its D2 neighbor. They want to play only schools where they can gain leverage strength of schedule while exposing themselves for huge revenue returns from corporate partners. Since changing their business model is clear that the Aggies have benefited greatly and there’s no need to change now.

With the move to the Big South their non-conference games most likely include NCCU annually,  FAMU/Alcorn/Jackson (Atlanta Classic), a regional PWI that will pay them and either Howard or SC State whoever has an open date and is willing to travel to Greensboro.

Lets get it strait. Its only "One Ram" wanting to play ya'll. Your school is a sellout and I don't want us to play ya'll in any sport. The hell with A&T. I respect OldschoolRam, but I wish he didn't start this thread. Those fools in Greensboro has won a few games and now that have forgotten that they have an obligation to the HBCU world. They actually think they are the same as the Big South schools. Yet they can't go into a school and recruit the same students that the Big South members can. You may think you are white but they know you are black... and it will show sooner than later.

Glad you see the vision. They see it too. They just in denial. Lol.

I see NCCU annually as the birds are our rivals and will be on the schedule every year after things settle from our transition. Playing in a Classic in Atlanta would be nice, but I think it's more likely we will see a regional HBCU mix of Howard, Norfolk, or SC State. We have ties to all those schools and travel would be well within our footprint.

After that, a regional FBS school for sure. We have played every FBS School in NC besides NC STATE as I recall. Trying to stay in rotation on those schedules will be good for our budget and the program.

The rams are irrelevant at this point...and they know it, and that's why they are so pissed. Their obsession with all things A&T is just  :crazy:

We're not pissed. We can see that in the long run, A&T moving to the Big South is bad for our people. The reality is that you can't save people that don't want to be saved. WSSU is doing fine without playing ya'll. We look in the mirror, and read our history, to help us know who we are. You are so obsessed with sports that you can't see how foolish your moves are.

Ram55 keeps going on-and-on about N.C. A & T being a "sellout" and our move to the Big South being bad for Black folk and HBCUs ... does anyone else on here share his opinion?

More like does anyone care about his opinion ! It will be years before we see the true impact this move will have on A&T and Black College Sports in general. Will move school leave their "traditional" conferences? Will the conferences "realign" and adjust to address issue that would make other schools leave. Will the Aggie make their way to another conference or return to the MEAC?

Who knows?

What I do know is all this sell out, name calling, and sky is falling talk is way over the top.

A&T made its decision, now we will have to adjust to a new conference...the MEAC will have to adjust to keep from losing more members, and I think that is a good thing in the end.

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.
