  1. Prairie View has gotten past their only mental block (Grambling). To me, that was our test. Coach Frazier won Coach of the Year last year. Don’t sleep…the sky is the limit now. Watch out!!!!

  2. Come on man/or lady!!! Defeated by South Carolina and Miami. These are not cupcakes, unlike a loss to New Mexico State. Just because PV beat Grambling this year, doesn’t make them worthy of the number on spot. Are they ranked in any FCS(excluding HBCU) polls? NO!!!

  3. I love when people try to down PV and we prove you wrong. PV has a great team this year and I know they would hand both MEAC SCHOOLS A L! PV ALL THE WAY! SET YOUR HOMECOMING OUT, SET IT OUT… SET IT OUT… SET IT OUT!
