The BigSouth has been a stepping stone to FBS....  :tiptoe:

Coastal and Liberty did it.  However, if I was y'all I would try to follow the Elon and VMI route and use this as a stepping stone to another FCS conference like the SOCON.

I just shared this with an "Ancient" Aggie fan. Not knowing the Big South, I sent Hampton's schedule to her.  She fainted! ;D

Nobody will want NCCU Eagles.


 :lol: The Big South is just one more HBCU from everybody leaving for another conference. Kind of like when to many of us move in their neighborhoods. When they have their conference gatherings, everybody is going to ask "who invited them".   :lol:

A&T has an enrollment goal of 30% non African-American students.  This decision seems to be in line that.

It's not just white.  We are looking for a more diverse student body.

I think this is a slap in black folks faces and a&t should be ashamed of themselves.  I wouldn't cry one tear if we stop playing them.

I have to admit, I have been a big A&T fan since 2012 when my daughter went there. I had no problem driving down 81 to see them play. I go to several games a year. I ain’t driving down 81 to see them play Gardner f---ing Webb.  :nono2:

It this wasn’t so painful for me that chit would be funny.

All I can hope for now is that NCCU, NSU, and SCSU will join us.

I know y’all got to be tired of traveling to Florida and Delaware.

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>
