We not going anywhere...this is a HBCU sport board.

This is going to be the biggest HBCU sports story of the year.

NC A&T and it’s last season in the MEAC.

It’s going to be years before we know the true impact...

YOU'LL KNOW THE REAL IMPACT IN SIGNIFICANTLY LESS TIME THAN THAT. BUH-BYE!


You keep saying bye but still have comments? Feel free to exit from this convo if you dont like what you're reading.


Eagles, I am bookmarking these threads so we can revisit in the future.   ;D

Should I be worried?

No, you birds shouldn't be worried. Its not ya'll that's selling out and still wanting to remain relevant to other HBCU'S. Who talks about Tennessee State and Hampton now that they have sold out? Who wants to play them....

Nobody!

A&T hired Donald Trumps brother as AD, and he has taken over that school. Even their fans are trying to justify his dumb ideas. A&T fans reminds me of Samual L. Jackson's character in  Django.  :lol: :lol:

Thank you Ram55, but I am not worried.  I am just waiting.

Help us understand how he think he understands black issues enough to talk about Aggie pride. Most of that pride is rooted in the black struggle and not sports. A&T is a national level HBCU and has been one of our main leaders for civil rights. Their hiring this AD was a sellout. Divide and conquer. Take the head and the others will die. This far more than sports. Its funny how traditionally, black men has let a ball dictate his worth.

Listen to the interview. He wants to someone to explain their concerns about the move so the University can address them.

this.

I noted that you grow a university through the curriculum taught. They must believe its through a sports conference. I guess the Ivies have it all wrong.  :shrug:

So moving to another sports conference removes all that? Where was all this outside concern 12-15 years ago when we were struggling?
For all the criticism he's rceiving this AD has saved Aggie Athletics. With all the hbcus we see having financial issues we get flak for cutting 500k in expenses? Even your own school couldn't handle the expenses of D1 but you hypocritically
criticize us for making financially responsible decisions? Man ya'll can take your bs somewhere else.

Furthermore, GTFOH with this sellout narrative you are pushing.  Are other HBCUs sellouts for having non-Black professors, coaches, employees, and students?  Our Athletic Director can speak to Aggie Pride because he has been at the University for 20-years.

These aggies on this board are still strong with those talking points. :no:  Good luck with your new conference...  Do understand, things are going to be different.  You are not moving to continue to be married to the MEAC schools.  Although some MEAC schools may eventually play you, don't move banking on those games. Oh, and close the door behind you on the way out.  :no:   
Whether great or small, victory is victory!

No, because those non-Blacks are AT a Black institution.

I have yet to see any Aggie post one of the MAIN reasons for going to the Big South as opposed to other conferences.

Hmmm, just like our AD.

Somebody is paying attention...

Very ambitious move. I think in the end something will work out where the A-Sun will end up with an expansion to 16 schools. This YouTube channel idea from their commissioner is a great one.

Huh? Once again, the MAIN reason for going to the Big South is a reduction in travel costs estimated to be at $500k per year.

No one can tell me different because I was in attendance at the initial meeting in 2015 when a detailed power point presentation was given covering this issue. At that time he said he was exploring moving to a more geographically friendly conference.

The AD and Chancellor met with a total of eight other fcs/fbs conferences with offers coming from two, the BSC and the Atlantic Sun. It is also said that an offer was being put together by the Southern Conference. In the end the Big South is the one that made the most sense if our intent is to save on travel costs.

The AD was asked about other reasons and he said there were other benefits to the move, however travel cost was the reason for the move......the same thing he said 5 years ago.

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.
