One last thing. FAMU's athletic dept is extreme debt. Millions of dollars so it's up to them if they'll sell their home game to a classic promoter next year. But if they're smart they'll keep it on campus and pack the house, which will be easy to do. They have fans that attend home games (unlike Alcorn) so that's big money at the gates already. Plus the boom will travel there do to the commitment from the president. She increased the budget and committed to them traveling to all away games. So you'll have two premiere bands going at it in Bragg Stadium. That alone will increase attendance. And you'll have a good number of JSU fans attend so FAMU will actually sell out next year because of the size of their stadium. It's gonna be crazy in that stadium if both football teams are good.

Very true......Hate the 100 can't make the trip. People been sleep on the financial situations at HBCUs....

Okay first of all... The only reason i said that was because it would make sense to play a "challenge" or "classic" or whatever in a neutral spot in the first place... Not only will u increase attendance for the game, u also give both your schools recognition in other areas.. Which increases student enrollment from nearby areas ... And not only those two reasons.. But u also make it a more affordable trip for FAMU's band too attend.. Which in itself will increase attendances, which will increase revenue... Find some decent sponsors and go from there... But again i did say "business minded people" not "greedy, selfish, ignorant, poor minded, jack-asses" like yourself...  Its cool though, u saw the attendance for the game... Jus be content with your meager little allowance or u could split roughly $100,000 (every year), its all you...

Says the person from a school who can't even get a MEAC team to play Them. But business minded people know it costs money to Have it at a neutral site. Then you'd have to split the already reduced profit betweeb both schools. It's a home & home series. Both schools make the money and keep the money when it's at home. Alcorn stupid for selling their home game against Grambling. Instead of Alcorn playing Grambling at home and keeping all the profit, they play them at neutral sites and guess who gets a lot of that money? Yes Grambling does. Then Grambling hosts the game at Grambling when it's their home and keeps all the money and Alcorn profits ZERO dollars. Dumb as hell so I don't think anyone should take business sense from a Alcorn person. Y'all just now having enough balls to host JSU at home. All them years y'all was getting pimped. But FAMU and JSU need to do like Alcorn and play every game away from campus? Ha!

Who cares.....They have boosters like we do. Start supporting your school and maybe the band can attend every game like we do know. BUT...I see you are a Alcornite....Yall get ready cause we going to blow you back to the fields where you belong... Worry about your own school....
