    New A&T Football Coach on His Vision For the Aggies HINT: It involves the P-Word.

    And lastly, one of the discussions we recently had on Bluedeathvalley.com is that we are currently living in the golden era of A&T football but where do we go from here? So before we let you go, let me pose that question to you. After a period of unprecedented success, including a 12-0 championship season, where does the A&T football program go from here?

    Coach Washington: I would like to see it go to the national level; not playing solely in the Celebration Bowl. Id like to go for the big stick, the big trophy and become FCS national champions. Thats where we are headed.
    Check out the full interview here: http://bluedeathvalley.com/sam-exclu...am-washington/

    NOTE: He also praised the Celebration Bowl appearances and how it helped recruiting this year. We got 6 kids in the early period that will all participate in Spring Practice, which starts March 12th.

    It would be nice to see NC A&T schedule some of the top teams in the out of conference but how to they plan to participate in the playoffs with their tie into the Celebration Bowl.

    Which requires losing a game, so they don't get the conference bid to the Celebration Bowl.

    Can’t they just decline going to the CB and have the runner up go? The MEAC having an at large bid in would be really cool, especially if they are a program like A&T. I know they got in a few years back, but the Aggies is seem to have made big strides in the right direction.

I guess you should expect it from a career high school coach. Who btw, underachieved in high school. What a loser.

    Correct, both answers. The MEAC champion cannot opt out of The CB. Their new hc is hoping for an at-large invite from the fcs playoff committee coupled w/ a 2nd place finish in the MEAC. Where is the logic?

    No they cant decline. They can get into the play offs as a co-champion if the other co-champ is ranked higher or by finishing 2nd.

    The statement is more of a desire to build a top FCS program and expectation to compete in the playoffs in the event we dont earn a CB berth.

    As long as were in the MEAC, its the CB first.
