So, who do you think will be the best Black College football team of the 2009 season?
Grambling won the Black College national title last season and is the preseason pick to capture the SWAC championship. South Carolina State won the MEAC last season, had a strong showing in the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) playoffs before losing and is the preseason pick to win the conference again.
Albany State is the preseason pick in the SIAC, earning the top spot in a slim margin over Tuskegee, with Fayetteville State earning the nod in the CIAA. Do you think one of those four preseason conference picks will emerge as the top team at the end of the year?
What about a team that didn’t earn its conference’s top position in the preseason such as Florida A&M in the MEAC, Tuskegee in the SIAC or Jackson State in the SWAC? Will one of those teams rise to the top?
What about Tennessee State or Central State – or someone that I’ve left out altogether? Let me know who you think will be the best team – and why.
And it won’t take long to find out who might be the frontrunner – Grambling and South Carolina State meet in the SWAC/MEAC Challenge Sept. 6. Let the discussion begin …..
