    NC A&T Football: Chasing Excellence | Stats

    (STATS) - Whenever North Carolina A&T loses a game, coach Rod Broadway basically finds only one way for it to be acceptable - that the other team earns the win as opposed to the Aggies beating themselves.
    To prevent that from happening, Broadway and his coaching staff stress to their team about stopping an opponent's run game and with having an advantage in turnovers.
    Considering how well the Aggies are achieving those goals this season, it's not surprising the No. 15-ranked team has the best record in the FCS at 6-0 (none of the other six unbeatens have played as many games). They're also tied atop the MEAC standings with rival North Carolina Central, with both winning their first three conference games.
    "We want to be excellent every play," Broadway said. "I'm not talking about wins and losses, I'm just talking about how you play this game and how you go about trying to achieve greatness. I think you achieve greatness by chasing greatness, I think you achieve excellence by chasing excellence.
    "We need to chase it and, hopefully, that will bring out something from within which makes us play better."

    You guys have a good thing going. Curious how long you will be able to keep Broadway.
    Just because you are offended doesn't mean you are right.

    One doesn't "achieve greatness" by playing in a terrible conference and ducking the rest of the subdivision for a minor payday...

    Sounds like a winning recipe by coach Broadway. As for the playoffs/celebration bowl you need to do what is best for your university and conference.

    Good luck to you guys the rest of the season.

    They already know. Those Rattlers will throw the kitchen sink and try to get the band to fight the football team.

    Big fan of coach Broadway, WestCoast. Also, absolutely LOVE that pre-game that NCA&T does for its home games. Remarkable and trendsetting paying that great homage.

    The 2nd great migration kicked off in the 1980s. Let us continue to fuel it and make it come to full fruition.

    I think we are nearing the end , he's 62. I think maybe 4 more if not 5. My fear is that we lose some staff, we have some good coordinators and at some point someone will come get them.
