That would be a great move for the Big South. A school that has had past success in football and is not looking to leave FCS. and I agree, looks as if Hampton may want to participate in the playoffs instead of a shot at playing a SWAC school at the end of the season.

FIFY, although any pick up by the Big South is a great move considering what they have now. Since 2000 they are 1-15 vs the CAA.

Maybe with the move they'll be able to recruit better. Saying you're not MEAC anymore could have an upswing in talent you are recruiting.

Seems like I remember a year 10 years ago that they were in the top ten :)

The point being with the Big South, is that a lot of the teams moving in weren't good choices. PC. or are obviously moving on like KSU.

They were, but not in my ballot. That was probably the year they ran the MEAC table and beat Jackson State, Gardner-Webb and Savannah State OOC :roll: Lost 38-10 to Richmond in the first round. Richmond was an 8-3 team that lost the next round.

In the past both SC State and Del State talked about it. But DelSt was actually talking about I-A. :rofl:

I have suggested that Virginia Union&Virginia St think about replacing Hampton.Some ppl have suggested Tuskegee as well.

You have way to good of a memory.

But I was actually thinking about this period
2004 Co Joe Taylor Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference 10–2
2005 Joe Taylor Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference 11–1
2006 Joe Taylor Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference 10–2

They did lose to CAA teams in the first round all of those years but they were close games with the exception of 2005.

Still the potential is there and don't say any more cuz I never listened to you anyway :D

The bigger point is that it is good for the Big South. They need stability. Not PCs who are going to fail. or KEnnesaws who are going to leave.

Heard Tuskegee got ripped off of a playoff berth in DII, maybe it's time for them to move.

I agree they are a good fit for the BS, and vice versa.

That is the exact time frame I was referring to (2005 was the example I gave), but that period of gaudy records only goes to prove how bad the MEAC really was/is. The fact that a team can run rampant through the MEAC (22-2) and not win a playoff game speaks volumes. Why teams like NCA&T continue to be ranked so high just baffles me.

Old Dominion would be a great MEAC replacement. As bad as our athletic program has become we would be a perfect fit.

That '05 game with Hampton was very close they lost 42-35 forgot the opponent they had speed merchant Jerome Mathis as their main weapon on offense he was a NCAA finalist in the 200m as a sophomore,junior.He was NFL combine invite and did not disappoint running a blazing 4.25!!!!
