    Re: Andy Hibbett no longer a GA at C-N

    Andy's doing just fine at Hardin Valley Academy. I wouldn't put to much stock in the hearsay that some may be giving for reasons unknown.
  2. Re: SB873 Approved, and includes ECSU. Great News for the Vikings!!

    ECSUGRADWSSUDAD

    Lets hope that ECSU's days in the near future resemble what things looked like during your 'back in the day' description. Sounded like it was a great and prosperous time to be...
  3. Re: SB873 Approved, and includes ECSU. Great News for the Vikings!!

    Actual facts: ECSU had around 3,300 students in 2010, down to around 2,400 in 2013, and now (2016) it's now down to an enrollment just above 1,500.

  4. Re: SB873 Approved, and includes ECSU. Great News for the Vikings!!

    Some valid points have been made. As far as why I have been so in favor of ECSU being a part of a program, it now pretty much guarantees that the school will not only remain open, but will play a...
  5. Re: SB873 Approved, and includes ECSU. Great News for the Vikings!!

    The federal budgets are just as volatile as state budgets, with no guarantees from year to year (see examples below). The risk are the same. If you are opposed to SB873, you should be more opposed to...
  6. Re: SB873 Approved, and includes ECSU. Great News for the Vikings!!

    In reference to turning public institutions into welfare universities by subsidizing tuition cost, thus expanding the dependency on the government, and hoping that cuts aren't made in the future,...

    LegalRam

    Yep, looking back, you're right. I shouldn't have responded with a knee jerk reaction to your post. It's just that your reference to these schools as being welfare schools because they...
  8. Re: SB873 Approved, and includes ECSU. Great News for the Vikings!!

    Now I wouldn't be throwing rocks in a glass room. 96% of the students attending WSSU receive federal and state support, with the average amount being around $16,000.00 (check with the financial...
  9. Re: SB873 Approved, and includes ECSU. Great News for the Vikings!!

    Never going to happen, and if by a very slim chance the funding did come to an end, the schools would go back to their original tuition rates. Keep in mind 2 of the 3 schools were already showing...
  10. Re: SB873 Approved, and includes ECSU. Great News for the Vikings!!

    Just thou$and$ of dollar$ per year, while not suffering academically!!

    By the way ECSU made the smart (last second) decision to not be excluded from this bill, and will prosper based on that...

    UNCP Chancellor acknowledges the benefits of this new bill.

  12. Re: SB873 Approved, and includes ECSU. Great News for the Vikings!!

    This change will not come into effect until 2018, 2017 at the earliest. That will give the schools more time to prepare for the possible influx of new students. The great thing is that everyone is...
  13. SB873 Approved, and includes ECSU. Great News for the Vikings!!

    Great news!!!!!! SB873 has been approved as part of the NC budget agreement, and ECSU is included.

    Elizabeth City State University will no longer face the ultimate fate of having to close it's...

    Re: Is Catawba going to travel?

    The attendance is generally based on the popularity of the program (also winning helps). And you're right, no matter what the enrollment, a school can only put 11 players on the field at a time.

    Re: Is Catawba going to travel?

    Student enrollments rarely play a significant roll in college football attendance. While they represent a percentage, on average the majority is made up of fans (local and regional), alumni, player's...

    Re: The future of SAC Football

    In my opinion, Commissioner Patrick Britz may be content with the SAC's recent direction of adding non-football programs while focusing more on soccer. Even with Brevard's departure, the SAC will...

    Wolf King,
    I may be wrong, but I wouldn't stock the visitor's side with very many hot dogs and bags of nuts for this game. The total attendance barely broke a couple thousand when y,all played last...

    (LOL) Britz may be looking for a few more soccer schools to add.
  20. Re: A Political storm brewing in NC that could seriously impact the CIAA

    Unfortunately, based on this weeks actions, 'going away' is exactly what many (including myself) now believe will be the sad fate of ECSU in the very near future. Funny thing is, some believe that if...
  21. Re: A Political storm brewing in NC that could seriously impact the CIAA

    Sadly, it appears as though a helping hand was offered, and the hand was not only bitten, it was aggressively slapped away. The sponsor of the bill (SB873) crafted it in a way that it would benefit...
  22. Re: A Political storm brewing in NC that could seriously impact the CIAA

    I simply wish that ECSU would not only accept but to totally embrace the wonderful opportunity which is being presented. I don't want ESCU to fail or close, which is exactly where it's headed.

  23. Re: A Political storm brewing in NC that could seriously impact the CIAA

    The people I talk with over at UNCP never compare themselves, the university, or the town to UNC or Chapel Hill. They are proud of their heritage, and are also very proud of how UNCP has evolved into...
  24. Re: A Political storm brewing in NC that could seriously impact the CIAA

    I find it amusing that you say that you don't want ECSU to be more like the successful institutions of higher learning in NC (are you sure you're really a Vikings fan?).

    Your alluding in some way...
  25. Re: A Political storm brewing in NC that could seriously impact the CIAA

    Oh yea, you can say UNCP 'sold out' when they became recognized as being a part of the UNC System in 1996. They 'sold out' the growing number of vacant store fronts and overgrown vacant lots that...
