As of now, there appears to be no ATL Classic for Florida A&M's schedule, maybe they're working out some kinks?  However, the first 3 of 4 games are fairly important, perhaps important enough to mark the return of the Marching "100"?

If the band was to come back, We obviously be at all the home games. As for away games, they'd probably take us to the MEAC/SWAC, OSU, SCSU and the FL Classic.

Discuss.

LOL. Yall really want FAMU in the ATL classic. 99.9 percent chance they won't be.

You realize FAMU has been in that classic for since it's fruition?  It's only natural that they would be in it.  Plus, I just found out we opted out of the classic this year in order to have five home games, so that means we mad the conscious choice not to attend the classic this year.

zero fucks given about famu on this website

“We believe the home game that we are playing in lieu of the Atlanta Classic will net comparable revenue to our most recent game in Atlanta. It has been an honor to play in the Atlanta Classic over the years and we look forward to an opportunity to compete in this great series again in the future. These additional home games also give us an opportunity to reinvest in the Tallahassee community and our FAMU fan base.”

 

Translation...

When we looked at the attendance and local impact, the Atlanta Classic isn't the Bayou Classic. Our expenses have increased but the sponsors aren't giving us more money when we ask because there is no profit to gain. Annnnnnnd... Since there is no band, no one will attend to watch our crap football team. We had no choice but to schedule more home games because we can't accuse the sponsors of racism due to the fact we're in deep doo-doo.

Ummm, you realize that FAMU has the biggest fanbase in ATL right?  Not to mention our football team isn't "crap", last season was just pretty bad.  However, I've said in the chat, they're probably gearing up another season of "100" so if last ATL was any indication of how the ticket would sell without the band then, it was probably the best bet.

For a "humble peasant" you sure don't come off as humble.

I never said they lacked a fan base... The fans have never spent money to justify sponsoring the thing.
FAMU's band scandal was a smooth way for the sponsors to get out without the race-police being called. Look at it this way... If all of FAMU's folks are already in Atlanta how is that impacting the local economy?

Look at the Bayou Classic, now that's a fan base. Fans travel, book flights, rent cars, rent buses, lodging, shop, drink... That actually impacts the local economy.


Trust me. The sponsors aren't there. If there was money to be made corporations would be beating down the doors to take over the title sponsor position' but they're not. Anything coming from the chick/guy blowing the Administration should not be taken for truth. They're straight lying to you guys.

Even the Bayou Classic isnt worth nothing these days.... Attendance def has dropped alot and major endorsements has dropped out.... The game is boring... SU finally won one in how many years...
