There are times when HBCU's have to look out for their individual interests. Hampton had Dennis Thomas in their hip pocket and they still rolled out for a reason. :tiptoe:
There was an entire article in "The Undefeated " about why Hampton left, and it had nothing to do with cost as they originally stated.

Travel and kids in the classroom.... Seems like everyone thinking same way 

“What does excite me is that the geographic footprint of the Big South means that the travel is less, it means that the student-athletes can spend more time on campus in the classroom than traveling. It means that the expenses will be reduced, and the fact that we have a large alumni footprint in the three states that make up the Big South.”

https://theundefeated.com/features/hampton-hbcu-leaving-meac-for-big-south-conference/
"Harvey said that each of his coaches favored the move to the Big South. “I was the holdout,” he said. “But we thought, and the coaches thought, that this would be a good thing for their programs.”

The coaches are gambling, or hoping, that Hampton’s affiliation with a predominantly white conference will help with the recruitment of talented athletes that HBCUs have been losing to predominantly white schools. The MEAC is ranked 32nd in conference power rankings. The Big South is 21st.

“That’s not my orientation,” Harvey said. “The fact of life is that there are some people who feel that white is right and if you’re black, get back. For me, I want to compete against the best, not just the best black schools. I want to compete against the best.”

Very sad. If most of the MEAC is joining the Big South, then why leave the MEAC? At least the schools in the MEAC has many things in common. Its funny how we want our best talent to start attending HBCUs but we don't see the need for our schools to support each other. The racial tensions in this country has more and more of our talent looking at HBCUs, but yet HBCUs are wanting to go to the white schools for acceptance. Ain't that a crock of SHHITTTT?

Danged good point.

Looks like the MEAC is going the way of the old Southwest Conference, minus the thousand dollar handshakes, new cars and the Pony Express.

RIP MEAC  :no: :'(

Who knows. It's the wild wild west now. For all we know, they may try to link up with a conference further up North to cut down on travel.

This BOT meeting is our normal quarterly meeting, not an emergency meeting like some of the other institutions. I don't foresee a decision being made at this meeting nor do I see NCCU leaving the MEAC in the immediate future. I think you got us for at least another 2 years.

IF (just iF) NCCU were to announce after June 30, 2020 that they were leaving for another conference, they would then be required to play the 2020-21 & 2021-22 seasons in the MEAC before dipping out.

At least 2 years.......check lol

It seems like a lot of WSSU prim faculty positions (including Bill Hayes) are alums of NCCU. They all are making WSSU a better school. I don't think apples fall too far from the tree. I'm sure NCCU will do the right thing and remain in the MEAC as one of the conference leaders. The conversation will come up in their annual meeting, and it should. But they will not act on it.
