Elizabeth City State University has seen some dark times, but with Dr. Karrie G. Dixon as chancellor things are looking up. And athletics is a big part of that.

Maybe wssu chancellor should talk with this lady to get a better understanding of how a good athletics program helps enrollment. Apparently the people at Wssu dont understand this to let this program fall so far.

Do you really want WSSU to endure what ECSU endured to get back to this point though?

I don't know what ECSU had to go through in order to get to this point, but I do know that if you want an omelette, you gotta break a few eggs. Has WSSU broken enough eggs yet?

I love ECSU but I'm not too sure how accurate this title is.  HBCUs have been playing exhibition games for a long time.

The Vikings also had a bad loss against Bluefield State College who hasn't played football in 40 years.

Elizabeth City State University has a long way to go.

The title and story are just the icing on the cake. The real good stuff is in the podcast in the link. Please give it a listen!

Will do.

Northeastern North Carolina needs a strong ECSU.

Hopefully Dr. Dixon is a leader in the mode of Dr. Marion Thorpe and Dr. Jimmy Jenkins. From what I hear, she is.
