Cool Morehouse also has a Swimming team call the Maroon Tiger Sharks and a Rugby Team. Them and FAMU has Rugby Teams. :nod:


you mean HAD a swim team called the Tiger Sharks. That program was killed decades ago.
There is an AUC swim team but they are not ncaa-sanctioned.









The BLACK SABRES is Da'House's rugby team.







Polo? Meh!   :tongue2:

Well, I am not a fan of polo. But I am glad to see us (African Americans) venture into sports that, culturally, we do not usually bother with. But lets keep in mind, that a lot of those sports are very expensive.

There was once a SIAC swim championship and Morehouse won all of them. One year, they split in two meets with Georgia Tech. But it did not take very long for there to be few programs in the area that were allowed to compete with them and they called it quits.

Also former President Keith was on the team. From what I understand, they never recruited anyone. The Bros were on campus and they could swim. They also had a bowling team that no one knows about. Same with it. There are table tennis tables where the bowling alley once was.

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>
