We can't afford to be anywhere else.  We cut baseball because they claimed that cost too much money.  If we moved up we'd have to add sports and a bunch of scholarships.  Call it comfort zone if you want, but if you ain't got it you ain't got it.

Understandable!!!  But should WSSU come up with a long-term plan for future growth and the possibility of moving up???

If we had already maxed out with funding at the D2 level then I would be on board with a growth plan looking to move to D1.  However, we aren't there.

In my opinion here's what our current long term plan should look like:

1. Offering every sport that the conference sponsors (we are missing bowling and men's track).
2. Offer the D2 max amount of scholarships for each sport.
3. Fully funded coaching staffs with the appropriate amount of assistants.
4. A replacement/renovations to our basketball arena.
5. Negotiating a more favorable deal for Bowman Gray Stadium.
6. Add/bring back non-sponsored CIAA sports (i.e. Baseball, Men's Tennis, Soccer, etc.).

Once we are able to accomplish all of those goals, then I'd feel like we could actually consider looking into moving up again.

You do realize you just layout a long-term plan, but would WSSU administration be eager to do such???

Well now that we have our new AD I can only be hopeful.

We are comfortable with who we are.Its much better to be competitive with like schools than to be a nobody with schools not like us. We don't have to apologize or answer to others who want us to be like them... nobodies. Us playing for a national championship just a few years ago means we're where we need to be. When one of our DI schools do better than what we have accomplished we might develop plans for a move up.

There is nothing about us that says we're DI... Nothing.

Am I expected to answer that or is this your attempt to be an asss? However, how much money does your school make for being a doormat in DI?

And the added comment from an Uncle Tom Aggie is ridiculous. They claim to be making their move based on them not having enough money, then they try to shade WSSU for cutting excessive sports we can't.  afford

Oh it's no shade. It's actually funny. You keep harping on the fact you played in the national championship. But you also were fully fundeing your football team which you aren't any more. You couldn't sustain your spending , which is the reason you went back to D2 and even at D2 you couldn't keep up spending and that is why your cutting the non revenue sports.

A&T is adding sports. And building facalities. It's just funny that you keep bringing up 2012 but 8 years later, what did that do for your athletic programs?

I wish the northern MEAC schools would drop to D2 and team up with the northern CIAA schools.

Howard, Morgan, and Delaware State. No way that's going to happen.
