You'd be more likely to come close to filling it up down the road if you played VT. I'm pretty sure the ECU-VT game in 2008 brought 72,000+ to BoA.

VT is actually on the schedule, but not until like 2017 or 2018. It is an away game though.

I'm thinking they'll probably cancel now though because we will no longer be an FCS program.

I was there. Bout had to give some 40 year old tech fans a reality check.

Just like the USC game here, it's not a sell out b/c not all the seats are able to be purchased.

I was there too. Then came back to Greenville the following week to watch us beat Pat White and WVU with relative ease.

Yeah that was a special season. Had a good friend starting on that team and he really made some plays and made us proud.

It will be approximately 70 feet wide, making them only slightly smaller than the video boards used in BoA stadium.

I wish this had happened 10 years ago before I got there.

haha I feel you on that.

I drove through campus a few days ago and its really incredible how much it has changed since I was a freshman in 2005.

Had it happened 20 years ago, we'd probably be in the Big East right now. We were a candidate in 03, but were left out due to lack of football. The Catholic schools pushed for the inclusion of the catholic basketball schools over us and St. Louis (Jesuit).

Some new updates courtesy of the Observer.

The field house was completed this week and control turned over yesterday.

The bowl is completely finished.

They are now spreading gravel on the field for the subsurface of the field.

The field turf will start going down on Tuesday.

Looks great. Glad you UNCC fans can finally have some college football to pull for.
