Going from the MEAC to the Big South to the CAA in 4 years could be considered ignorant......but I guess Aggie arrogance is bliss as well.
Yeah we know you and a quite a few "aggies" on this board want to go back to the Celebration bowl, but that ship has sailed. Time to move on.
Take the Celebration Bowl out of the equation.....moving to 2 different conferences (irrespective of which conference it is) in 4 years is crazy. If Cambpell, Elon, NCCU, or Gardner-Webb did the same thing, I'd be scratching my head as well.....PARTICULARLY IF THE INFRASTRUCTURE IS NOT IN PLACE TO HANDLE SUCH TRANSITIONS.

He has a lot of former players that are with him on this .. the ship has sailed and but the fact we are getting ready to go 0-11 means there is going to be a lot of heated discussions.
I got yelled at for saying our football program was blown up under the transition- turns out it was obliterated.
I also stated that when HBCUS we’re getting hot we exited left. And that indeed did happen. People need to listen to what he’s saying because he comes from a different generation. This generation is anti white validation & is serious about it. The recruiting I see validated this. Black people that want the black experience are going to schools where the culture is there. Even Ray Lewis expressed interest in SC State - whether it’s good for them or not - whether celebrity coaches are good or not- nobody stood up and said they wanted to come to A&T. And I believe that’s a trend and it has me terrified.
We did not need to move to white conferences to achieve R1 status .. Morgan state and Howard are on our heels and might make it b4 us and they will do it in a black conference.
My hope is that Dr. Martin genius of concentrating on black kids that attend PWIs to make us the largest in the world with a 3.9 gpa to boot will translate into black athletes that would not ordinarily attend an HBCU. This is our only hope because we are certainly trending the opposite way and a 0-11 season is not going to help this.
Howard probably has as many sports teams in PWI Conferences as in the MEAC...
So really we are only talking about Football. In five years Byron Allen may have bought ABC and made it more lucrative for all HBCUs to play together in a super conference. Until then, we are going to continue down this path.
