Only four of the full-time members play football in the Big South.

Presbyterian is leaving
Okay and... *shurgs*

The Big South doesn't look that stable.
Yeah well that's been obvious for quite sometime.  Ironically when it's all said and done. We may see a new version of white flight and either the emergence of another hbcu conference (albeit defacto) or simply a change in geographic location for the meac.

Cool.  Just posted it on the A&T and Hampton schedule threads along with my own
Best excuse thread.
Best excuse thread?

I gather that you have seen it by now.

I wonder would the MEAC teams black ball A&T?  That Aggie Pride loyalty of showing up to games might be tested without regular games against Central, SC State, and FAMU.  But who knows maybe new rivalries with Gardner Webb and Campbell might really get fans out to the games...
Clearly you haven't been paying attention to attendance post. There's a reason that TNSU has an agreement to play  a schedule amount of hbcu games.

It's called sarcasm

Am I missing something here?  The Big South Conference is not a big deal.  They are not a real step-up from the MEAC.  They have 11 schools and only four play football.  They have small mostly not widely known of schools.  What's the big deal?  If your're going to move up at least try to get into the AAC with East Carolina, Memphis, UConn, Houston, etc.  I just don't get it.

If they do this we wouldn't want to play them. Part of our wanting to play them was the history of us both being local HBCUs. In our eyes they would no longer exist. When their attendance starts to fall is a year or so, they will be begging to get back in and play in Winston. Who wants to see the Big South? And who in the Big South is willing to bring fans to Greensboro?

Maybe in a few years we will be FBS ready. UNCG has over 19,000 students. :shrug:
