VA State is a perfect fit. Kentucky State could be interesting for a northern oriented MEAC, but are they another SSU / WSSU repeat? :shrug: ALSO can we take HBCU Sports as serious journalism?? :-X :thefan:

Like FOX News, anytime you cater to one group over others for economic reasons, things can get quite misleading when it comes to facts and fictions.

Good move for Virginia State. Kentucky State need to stay put. ;)

Virginia State would be better off in the  Colonial or Atlantic 10.
Fayetteville State by choice. Bronco by the Grace of GOD.

Agreed.  I just saw a video of their stadium. They will need some serious stadium additions and upgrades if they want to be taken seriously.

True, but geographically speaking, Valley, UAPB, and Alcorn are well within the SWAC's footprint.  KSU would have to travel a bit in the MEAC and we all now know how much travel budget plays into conference decisions.

I can see them going after Benedict to renew the Huge Heated Rivalry between them and South Carolina State and I can see them revisiting WSSU about rejoining the MEAC. :nod:
I doubt if Ky State is going to move, heyal they aren't even a good SIAC team. :no:  They've had one winning season since 2012.  Even the year that was talked about they lost to Skegee, Morehouse and Mills Community College of Da Field.  I doubt if Madame Prez at BC is willing to pay that much money go FCS.  She really doesn't care for football but knows its a good tool to raise money and the BOT/alumni want it.

She is FINE but I'm so glad she wasn't chosen to be our president.

Just another clickbait story. Sure we have a nice campus and a new basketball arena but that doesn't drive revenue. it's people in the stands. isn't it $1M just to consider moving up to D1? Not to mention the $ it costs to fund a D1 athletic program. I would rather stay at D2 and improve our academic and athletic programs than chase that D1 bone.
