For our Homecoming fundraising, we are approaching $100,000.  Everyone, feel free to donate to NCCU atletics.  :nod:
Whether great or small, victory is victory!

This is a good idea for any big game thats not being played because of the virus... regardless of the divisions. Its about what the fans what to see and not about what division they play in. I'm sure the WSSU game would be the third most wanted game on NCCU's schedule, just below A&T and homecoming. There is not a school in the MEAC the Central fans want to see more than WSSU. Like wise with WSSU.

Unfortunately, we never win these fund raising contests.  My fellow alums I guess just aren’t the giving kind.

I'd argue that NCCU alums already give throughout the year and aren't motivated by these 'contests.'   :shrug:

During the same week as the one-night WSSU stand; alums have been bombarded with Every Eagle Every Year campaign mailers and the Virtual Homecoming texts and videos. 

We didn't defeat WSSU; but we're still both winners though.   :lol:

:lmao:    How many schools pick a non conference team in a fund raising effort.? Are they your yardstick?   We are what we strive to be.  Lately :shrug: :shrug:

What in the world does conference affiliation have to do with fundraising, especially amongst HBCUs in the same state. Good Lord, congrats on being D1 but some folks are brand new out here.

The Watcher - All I can say is just consider the source of such a comment.  :lol:

Yes, you’re right.  You would think however that people asking for $$$ would be aware of ‘giving overload’. It’s tiring.
