Agreed!

So is it safe to assume that you'll be chipping in personally for a couple of $1000 'investments'?

Tom, well said! You're the man.
Good point about it being now or never.

exactly. the time is never "right"

we used that excuse after 9-11 and should of chased football then

all you have to do is look at USF

Stanton Adams

Tom is right again. Even when the Chancellor puts up a resonable plan people still want to tear this university down to "preserve" so called "academic integrity". Pathetic people, do you all sit around looking for things to be against? This will happen and I am doing my part. UNC Charlotte will be better for EVERYONE with football!

Alisha

Well said. I can't wait to read you and Scott predict the UNC Charlotte football season, ala your back-and-forth Panthers predictions.

Go 49ers!

Thanks Tom for your positive comments. That represents what the Charlotte community is all about. I remember when we were made fun of for trying to get an NBA franchise. Now we have NBA and NFL and have been to the Superbowl. Not too bad. Football at UNC-Charlotte will only add to the excitement in this area.

UNCC Alum

Tom, Well said! Its amazing how many nay-sayers have been crawling out of the woodwork claiming to know what's best for UNCC. The funny thing is, the majority of these people have never even stepped one foot on campus. Now how can you argue against something you know nothing about? It's time to put the nay-saying to rest. UNCC is progressing, and I'm looking forward to it!

UNCC 9ers

"Football will give Charlotte students ..."? Huh?

Now we are really confused. Charlotte students and alumni? Do you mean Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools aka CMS students and alumni? Dude, CMS has been playing football for 100 yrs in case you didnt know and the alumni go to a lot of the games still after decades.

So who the hell is "Charlotte students"? Are you referring possibly to University of North Carolina at Chatlotte or UNC Charlotte or UNCC students and alumni? It even used to be UNC-C.

You must be more specific because we cant read minds here and because we never heard of nor do we accept the terminology "Charlotte students and alumni".

UNCC students and alumni or UNC Charlotte students and alumni is 100% preferable for 99% of grads.

Otherwise we get easily confused and insulted with non-students and alumni using these detached half names or contrived bastardized versions.

Niners is OK though and not an insult but we prefer UNCC.

UNCC 9ers

The next step in our efforts to improve the public image of this university will be to drop our baby nickname (UNC Anything) and use a real name:

The University of Charlotte

arn

as a student, most students I know call it Charlotte

the team is the Charlotte 49ers not the UNCC 49ers

and as the chant goes

WE ARE CHAR LOTTE!

get in touch with the times UNCC 9ers

Good luck with that.

Why don't they take that sorry excuse for a football program in Raleigh or Durham, and transfer it to UNCC? Certainly UNCC would be ranked higher than either this year.

Gill

If you didn't know we are known as Charlotte now, then you my friend havent been on campus for the longest time. In which case, alum or not, your opinion doesnt matter :)

Go 49er Football!

Not really sure why you would think we'd give a flying **** what an App St. partisan blog had to say about us or our football effort.

Move along home little lost Mountaineer fan.
