    lol

    Sounds like coach-speak. The Celebration Bowl has been a windfall for teams involved, financially, in terms of branding and visibility, and in terms of enrollment.
    Save us Celebration Bowl! Save us!

    I don't see how Hampton will make out good financially leaving the MEAC especially losing out on the conference tournament money. The MEAC does pretty well with their conference tournament in Men/Women's Basketball. Unless they plan to play 2 FBS money games every year and keep Norfolk State & Howard on as OCC games I don't see them lasting long in the Big South.

    They don't want to stay in the Big South long term anyway.

    I think coach is looking long term. The Celebration Bowl has three more years. There are no guarantees it will continue beyond that.

    I have the feeling they will be back in the MEAC hat in hand

    What coach should have said is to keep the Aggies on a level of sustainability. Staying at the championship level they are now is the hardest thing to do. A few key losses to injuries, eligibility, etc... can turn a 12-0 team to 8-3 or 7-4 in a matter of one season.

    Wow. This is some interesting conversation. I have always said I would like to see more of the HBCUs play in the FCS playoffs or even at the FBS level.
