I agree. However, I don't think the fans will know its even happening so the participation might be low. I also read that we have games with them in both 2021 and 2022. This could be something really good for both schools if we started to regularly play again. I'm willing to go to Durham every year in football. The games should be at Durham County Stadium... make it the Bull City Classic. However, in basketball we need to do a home and home with them. Both gyms are off the chains when we play each other.

Why would we play football at the county stadium and ours is available?
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”

Does the county stadium hold a larger capacity than the NCCU stadium? I've been to both stadiums, but I honestly can't remember. But I can understand NCCU wanting to play the game at home because they can control the parking and concessions, in addition to the ticket prices.

Durham County Stadium holds 8,500 while NCCU can hold 10,000-around 15,00 (Track).  Why in the world would we rent a stadium when we own one?

My bad. Didn't mean to start a controversy. I was thinking the Durham County stadium was larger. I also thought that having the games off campus would add to creating a classic feeling. But NCCU facilities are fine with me, especially with just a two game series. Anything longer than two games would need to played at a natural site. Rams are not going to come to your campus every year for ever. And I do understand the Division thang. So a two game series on you campus every few years would work for me. You guys are paying us a fair price so I don't see any issues with us playing and you being the hosts.

Not making excuses, but somebody gave Winston $10,000.  :clap:  Also, Central is in a fund raising for Homecoming and still came up with $24,000+.  I heard money is still coming in.  This was great and I hope giving will continue at both schools. :clap:

 :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:

Awesome job by both schools. I wish we could do more of this across the board. Fundraising idea was solid.

Norfolk State and VSU have done it, and have been very successful.  First year of their competition Norfolk State raised over $300K.
