Losing MU, NA, KSU from a travel perspective is a gain for us, they were all Football only schools right? Finding 3 OOC games in the short term might be a scramble, but in the long term I see these three going as good for A&T. We should be able to fill those slots with regional FCS programs and other HBCUs. If we could get an ELON (CAA) and Western Carolina (SoCo) as fixtures on our schedule we would be playing every FCS program in the state. Add to that mix a steady rotation of MEAC programs like SCSU, NSU, and Howard.

That would give us the opportunity to further reduce travel costs, increase our statewide and regional influence, solid chances at BS Championships/playoff appearances, and appealing schedules for fans of HBCU football.

Sort of OFF topic but wow. Monmouth really has a SMALL stadium. Seating capacity 4,000+. 







For a one-sided stadium, it actually looks pretty nice.

There goes another failed Northern experiment for the Big South.  Stony Brook did the exact same thing about a decade ago.  Robert Morris is really on an island by themselves now. 

The MEAC should be funny and send Robert Morris a football only invite to pull them from the Big South. :snicker

Translation: a weaker conference gives A&T everything they wanted wrapped up in a nice little bow. "MAYBE"

5 Conference Games
1 FBS Game
3 HBCUs
2 Regional FCS

We are potentially looking at 9-10 games every year 5 hours or less away. So dope for the fan base

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.

A&T
Hampton

Charleston Southern
Campbell
Robert Morris

Objectively, we're the only public school on that list, we have the largest enrollment of the lot, and going to be an R1 institution by 2030. It's an odd fit if you look at it carefully.
