« on: July 30, 2021, 09:57:05 AM »

South Carolina State MEAC championship, as the Bulldogs topped the league’s annual preseason poll.
Voting was conducted by the conference’s head football coaches and sports information directors.
The Bulldogs received five first-place votes and racked up 118 points. Led by head coach Oliver “Buddy” Pough, South Carolina State shared the 2019 MEAC championship with North Carolina A&T State for the 15th MEAC title in program history.
Norfolk State, with two first-place votes, was picked to finish second, while North Carolina Central also picked up a pair of first-place votes and was tabbed to finish third.

SC State would be able to win the MEAC even if the departures stayed. If Buddy stayed with the young QB during the 19-20 season, they would have won the conference then.

I think third place is about right.  Also we host both SCSU and NSU.

SCSU is heads and shoulders better than everyone else.  Hopefully the fellas in DC will be competitive this fall.

WHOAAAAA!!!

Also, you all have a game changing QB coming in.  Undre Lindsey from Gaffney, SC can have the same impact at HU that Newton had.  Plus you all have a good coach.
