    Re: What current I-AAs are seriously considering I-A moves

    I'd love to see my Rattlers join the Sunbelt. Our home attendance was the 3rd highest in FCS last season averaging over 19k fans per game - even with our HORRIBLE record for the past 5 seasons. A winning FAMU team is easily worth an average of 30k plus fans! We have plans to build a new 35k seat stadium, an athletic center and an indoor practice field. Once all of that is done, hopefully our team has drastically improved and we can get an invite!

    Logistically, the Sunbelt makes too much sense for us!

    Has FAMU even recovered from their first failed attempted move to I-A/FBS? Why don't we first sit back enjoy the program come back to life in the MEAC and then move on from there. While the benefits of the Celebration Bowl are clear, would love to see the Rattlers in the playoffs again. I believe you guys are the last HBCU to win a I-AA/FCS playoff game.

    The Sunbelt is a great football conference that is respected from sea to shining sea. Any team that gets invited to that conference should thank their lucky stars.

    Would the same 30k fans come out to see FAMU play Texas State, Georgia Southern or Georgia State?? I would like to think the majority of their attendance numbers is due to them playing the likes of Bethune, SC State, NC A&T and Hampton (well that won't be the case any longer with them leaving the conference), along with OCC games with SWAC schools like Grambling, Southern, Jackson State and the Bama schools....

    Nope. The program hasn't been the same since. Its been one failure after failure and they've only had 3 winning seasons since 2003
