Yea but those remaining MEAC Teams are boring accept NCCU. Who want to see those other boring teams in the Celebration Bowl the SWAC Team will instantly crushed them. :nod: :lol:

not only is scsu "not boring", but they also have a very "sizeable" fanbase as well.  if scsu makes the cb, expect a "big turnout" from their fanbase.  the atl is in their region and is only 1 state away...



 :nod:  SC State has always shown up in the ATL.

I agree. The SWAC is going to be too much for the current MEAC.  :nod:

What the transfer of Florida A & M and Bethune Cookman University is going to do is expose how weak the SWAC really is. I would not be surprised if the next Celebration Bowl is between Florida A & M and South Carolina State. That would put 40,000 in the house and maybe more. Now the Celebration Bowl can do for someone else what it did for North Carolina A & T.

Weak?

BCU struggled with a sorry JSU while JSU has beaten FAMU the last 2 outings.

Boy you sure can tell those who really don't understand the difference between play one or two schools once or every other year. As opposed to facing them on a weekly basis.  Lol... your feeling are going to really get hurt.

The current MEAC will stuggle to beat each other. NCCU is the only other team from the meac to play in the CB. The SWAC has at least 8 to 9 teams that could be good enough to make it to the CB. MEAC has maybe 2 that could make a game of the CB. I just dont see the MEAC winning the CB anytime soon given how the SWAC is stacking up!
