i look at it this way.  if the bsc had not admitted two hbcu's to their conference, where would bsc football be now?  answer?  basically on the verge of "non-existence".

hence, that's why they admitted two hbcu's, simply for the mere "survival" of their conference.  nothing more, nothing less...

Its funny how we can spin things. We act like we have very little knowledge of America's history. One too many blacks moved into the neighborhood. One was enough but for the Big South to have invited the blackest school in America (NCA&T) was the last straw for Monmouth. So please, stop trying to spin this. They are running from ya'll. This has been the story in America from the start. Maybe you should just buy yourself a mirror.

So what you are saying in a nutshell is that the neighborhood is no longer exclusive and restrictive. The local government is reallocating tax dollars away from the neighborhood.  Property value is beginning to decline. The economic profile of the neighborhood will probably drop to its lowest level. Maybe one day gentrification will revitalize the neighborhood via some government funded economic opportunity zone, but Monmouth is not sticking around waiting for that to happen.

The CAA is a better fit for Monmouth all the way around.  They would be fools to turn down the offer to stay in the BSC.

Monmouth leaving is a good move for all. Now all eyes on Elon. Rumors are they are considering leaving the CAA for a return back to the Southern Conference or Big South. They've been murmuring about travel expenses and badly want A&T back on the schedule. Don't be shocked if they head back to the BSC.

I could see Elon returning because they have a much better chance at winning the conference. I wouldn’t say this is good though. All the top teams have left,

It's good because that's what A&T wants. They think that they're going to get the same respect the old heavy weights of the original bs got from the playoff committee.

Heard an opening might be popping up in the Southern Conference. UT Chattanooga is having dialogue with the A Sun per sources.

Elon in all sports would be great for A&T

Does A&T even care what conference Monmouth play in  athletically? :shrug:

Again you hit the nail on the head. I should have gone to Southern for my education.  :lol:
But really, black people that moves into exclusive white plantations can never see that they don't fit. They pretend that the world has changed and that the rest of black people is the problem when it comes to racism. Those blacks "always" return, for visits, to the hood for some cultural relief, then return home to their plantations. Look how many Aggies still come to this forum for some culture.  :shrug: Whites generally have a limit of how many blacks are allowed in the back of their minds before they move. Monmouth has reached their limit. Just like we pretend that our degrees mean more when white people are involved, whites feel their degrees are worth less when we are involved. In this era of TRUMP, I can't see why we can't see this.
