This school has 99 problems.  Joining the CIAA by 2015 will never be one.

Virginia University of Lynchburg’s request to rejoin the United States Collegiate Athletic Association was denied.

The decision could dramatically impact the small college, which is in the midst of a massive recruiting campaign and readying to kick off a new summer camp Sunday.

The USCAA announced Monday it would admit six new schools — Bryant & Stratton, Davis College, Illinois Institute of Technology, Great Bay Community College and Florida National University.

VUL was not included.

Matt Sims, chief operating officer of the USCAA, said in a phone message Tuesday the agency’s board of directors did not readmit VUL into the athletic association. The board met to vote on the matter last week.

VUL had been a member of the association until 2013, when, according to school officials, it failed to pay membership fees. The USCAA will not explain the reason for the school’s dismissal.

I wonder how this would effect their current schedule, especially against schools like Jackson State and Alcorn?

They better exercise their escape clause.  Even if they have to pay them to stay in Lynchburg. 

They'd be better off playing an exhibition against a military team if there are any left that still play tackle.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
