Celebration Bowl Trolls HBCU-Snubbing Media on Twitter

With more than two million households tuned into the inaugural Celebration Bowl between North Carolina A&T and Alcorn State last month, the newly-established black college football championship game took to Twitter to take a few journalists to task about the value of the game, and its participating teams. 

First, the official announcement for the ratings returns. 

Then, a dig at all of the other Football Championship Subdivision televised games which didn’t outdraw the Celebration Bowl, including the NCAA FCS title game and the Bayou Classic. 

Next, a swipe at the Associated Press for snubbing NCA&T running back Tarik Cohen on its all-bowl team list. 

And finally, a swipe at a CBS Sports writer who tried to rank all of the BCS bowl games. 

The Celebration Bowl – the good idea that turned into an epic Twitter-trolling rant on behalf of HBCUs.

    1. In HBCU culture, the game is regarded as the unofficial HBCU national championship. It features the champions of the two historically black FCS conferences, and therefore bears out fans’ labeling of the game as a title game. Previously, the HBCU national champion was decided by poll. This game eliminates the selection process, much as the BCS playoff system does for power conference schools.

    Not true because you have Tenn St and other DII HBCU programs that traditionally have been considered in the polls as well.
