Charlotte 49Ers Going Back Home To C-Usa

51 posts in this topic

No. I went to ECU first and I'm a Carolina fan.

Once football starts up I plan on purchasing season tickets.

I should clarify that I don't hate UNCC athletics, but I don't support Judy Rose and reward mediocrity with my alumni bucks.

There won't be any until the stadium is expanded. All season tickets will be sold to PSL holders. 7,500 tickets to go students, and the rest of the seats go to the visiting team.

If the visiting team allotment is not purchased, those will be sold as single game tickets.

The stadium will probably be expanded in 2015 though, so you won't have to wait too long.

I've debated just waiting on season tickets myself. PSLs are relatively cheap compared to NFL PSLs, but I still don't really have an extra $2,000 laying around to buy two seats

why don't they just build the stadium to it's max capacity during the first construction?

Well I doubt they expected to get into an FBS conference right away.

They are building it with bonds from the state (which are repaid by the school through donations, revenue, and student fees, not taxpayer money). They'd have to do the same to build the expansion, so it has to go through approval and all that first. It is put into the 2014-2015 budget currently for approval, but they won't be able to start construction until after it is approved.

I wished the seating would accomdate young alumn and current seniors and juniors, who arent in the postion to pay for PSLs, such as single game tickets & season tickets. The school is condsidering adding temporary seats so maybe that could be the opition. It will be interesting to see if the students will fill their seats up.

Sweet, can we get bobby lutz back plz?

Why? He sucks too.

Lutz succeeded in Conference USA the first time because he sold the strength of the conference. When he could no longer go to recruits and say "you can play against Calipari, Huggins, and Pitino" he stopped bringing in the talent. The only really good player he brought in in his last 5 years was Chris Braswell. 13 JUCOs in 5 years is unacceptable and it showed on the court.

He hated recruiting. Admitted it several times.

At a school like Charlotte, you need a coach that is willing to recruit his ass off. Someone in their mid-50's like Bobby doesn't want to do that and most of his assistants were similar in age to him and didn't want to either.

Bobby is in a great spot. As the head assistant at state he can make great money, work on game planning/practice, and leave recruiting to the other guys. If he does step into recruiting there, he can do what he does best: sell the conference and not the school. There is no easier conference to sell.

Man that recruiting class had the potential to be a launching pad for Charlotte.

We had 3 or 4 top 100 commits that year. When Beasley decommited, so did everyone else. It would have been a top 10 recruiting class in the nation.

Lutz had nothing to do with that commit though. That was all Hill. Somehow he's still riding the gravy train from that. He's getting 400k a year at Maryland and he hasn't done a very good job since that first class at K-State.

I just don't see UNCC doing much in basketball anytime soon. I expect Major to probably get the axe after this season as well.

Bobby Lutz is one of the biggest recruiters for NC State, helped bring Tyler Lewis in (McD AA) + is one of the main recruiters, attending many camps/tourneys, for many of the 2013 targets as well.

Also if Bobby Lutz sucks, then why did VTech have him 2nd on their list for next head coach?

Bobby Lutz has been great and so have those former assistants of his, who are also recruiting like crazy for state.

Lutz did well with what he was given, Charlotte is a hard sell to any recruit, its hard to blame the winningest coach in your schools history for the lack of success. I mean the guy went 19-12 in his last season there and Major has yet to get them to .500
