I always thought something to play on the fact that Fort Bragg and other major millitary bases were in the state would be cool. Like Carolina Combat or Carolina Force would be good. Always wanted to see a team go with a camo based uni, of course Nike did it with some colleges on a one-off look that was pretty sick. Or the fact that the region has a major rail road presence, CSX and the NS run through Charlotte and all through the Carolinas, perhaps a tie in to that. Maybe the Carolina Express, (since we already took one USFL name, why not).

When you look at industry and its relation to teams like Steelers and Packers and then think NC, you have things like past industries, tobacco, furniture, textiles, current ones like banking, research triangle, NASCAR, and then military bases.
Also, as mentioned, BBQ, moonshiners and chicken/pig farming are still viable.

Not sure we can get our name from industry, like the Steelers or Packers. So, we pick an animal I guess.

Still better than calling the team "spirit" or "blaze" or "concious" made that last one up.

So you don't think Carolina Cottonpickers would go over very well?

Carolina Fightin' Chamber of Commerce Welcoming Committees

(Since we always welcome other fans into our stadium. Might as well make it official and provide these fine folks with coupons and tourism brochures)

In honor of 90% of the Panther fans that are actually in attendance before halftime. Every time we score instead of a loud Growl we can play a loud "SHHHHSSSSSSH QUIET YA'LL!"

Isn't a "panther" technically like a misidentified cougar or leopard. I saw on discovery channel one time that a Panther is really just the black version of several species of animals.

Maybe we should be the Carolina Misidentified Cougars.


"Panthera" includes tigers, leopards, jaguars, etc.

In North America, the "panther" is a cougar or mountain lion. You can call it any of those. Yes, the Carolinas have panthers (cougars, mountain lions).

2 years ago, the neighbor of a friend of mine had a Panther on his trail cam in a dense swamp in central Davidson county... I'll try to get a hold of him and see if I can post that pic, it was pretty freakin sweet because no one believes big cats are still living around here. Its pretty clear to see its a Panther (or cougar, whatever) because it's shiny black coat and a long sleek tail almost as long as its body.

(that same summer, fox 8 did a story on the mysteries of several mangled horses on a farm near Lake Thomalex)
