    I'm not sure what we'll do honestly. People than know who are in "the know" are being tight lipped. I've been hearing MEAC or OVC for a while but I'm not sure what will happen. We've had some real conversations with the MEAC here recently. Dennis Thomas the commissioner has even been on our campus here recently.

    As far as Sharp he's a less than stellar commissioner to say the least.

    Thanks. I wish you well, but I hope it isn't the OVC. Nothing personal, but we already have 12 members and an odd number just makes scheduling a hassle and makes one more mouth to feed in a one bid league. If Murray State had left I wouldn't have had a problem with ASU, although I'd have preferred Kennesaw or Chattanooga. But another HBCU joining might get TSU off their insistence on only playing seven league football games.

    That being said, I don't see the rest of the OVC taking in a school in Montgomery.

    I am looking forward to see what happens because conference shuffling excites me for some reason.

    If I was a gambling man(which I'm not) I would gamble on Tennessee State leaving the OVC before I would us joining.

    I think that press conference will be a funny one to watch.

    A major malfunction...
    1. Drop to a 7 game mandate (What's the tiebreakers and playing conference games as non-conference is a FAIL) should have stayed at 9
    2. Cancel the SWAC Bowl (Less money...less money...less money)
    3. Playing "real" nonconference opponents in hopes of the playoffs to go winless in FCS playoffs
    4. Possible conference defections

    Catch SWAC football...It's SWACktastic!

    I thought you knew. The BIG BLUE is coming thru!

    The press conference was a waste of time pretty much. The AD pretty much stated that we're not leaving the SWAC right now but that we are "looking at all options" as far as conference affiliation. Also it was announced that we will be playing Tuskegee on Labor Day weekend from here on out until the foreseeable future.

    Yet you purposely play 1 fewer league game just so you can play our conference members......... Don't let beating up on Jackson State go to your head.
