Same.

Once Odums gets that machine working at NSU, they'll get their fan base back. They have a nice band, too.

SCSU isn't boring

Whoever represents the MEAC will not be boring.

Congrats to both conferences. I went to three of the five games and I have nothing but compliments for the organizers. A very well run event.

I may even go again if SC State makes it.

This is good news. Now this deal means that the MEAC football playing members should all receive a significantly larger share of this games revenue with less teams to split with.

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...

Go MEAC and SWAC! I am so glad to hear this.
I wish all the MEAC schools could up its BAND performances and numbers including NCCU!



I wonder if anyone in the administration is concern about our band numbers. For the past 3 or so years, it's been  :no:.  I think I will attend this year regardless of who will be playing.  Hope it is NCCU though.  :snicker
Whether great or small, victory is victory!

NCCU higher ups care very little about band. They tend to be apathetic towards stuff like that.
