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.

Nearing completion. Most of the turf is down, but it still needs the logo at midfield, CHARLOTTE in the endzones, and the yardline numbers.

We held our first practice today.

In between classes I drove over to take a look at the stadium and damn I'm ready for it to be 2013. UNCC's school spirit is way up from previous years, football is going to do great things for this school.

Yeah, I'm pumped. I'll be even more excited in 2015 though when we start conference play. Although CUSA is not an upper tier conference, I very much look forward to playing quality programs like ECU, Southern Miss, Marshall.

Word has it we're finalizing a deal to play a BCS team at home in 2015, but no word on who it was. I immediately though Wake Forest due to our ties to that program, but they have a full 2015 schedule. Duke too. Not sure what other BCS programs might be willing to play us at home in what will probably only be a 25,000 seat stadium at that time. It certainly won't be UNC, NC State, Clemson, or USC.

I'm pumped. This is great for the school and city. I'm looking forward to the rise of school spirt, as well.

Looking forward to kickoff!

speaking of tailgates, there is a one year to go tailgate this Friday at the school. Some alums are getting started around 11 and then the school will have a function with food and drinks starting at 4.

It has been a while since I've updated this, but the stadium is virtually finished now. All that remains to be done is landscaping around the stadium.

stadium looks absolutely gorgeous. Can't wait for niners football. I hope in a few years they will be getting decent recruits and can build that team up.

Visited friends down in charlotte last weekend, a few of them are on the team, say the coach/facilities are great and students definitely have a lot more spirit on campus. I wish I could of enjoyed it while i was there before I transferred.
