Charlotte v. Campbell Game Thread

Defense is very well coached. They are swarming not because of speed but because they are in right the place at right time. Offense is hella fun to watch.

I know that Campbell is not very good. But, it was very impressive to see how well the Charlotte team executed so well.

Nice coaching job

The pick six on the second play made #10 on ESPN Top 10 plays.

 

Atmosphere yesterday was great. Couldn't have really asked for a better inaugural game.

 

It was miserably hot yesterday though. I saw a few people pass out and I was feeling pretty awful for most of the game due to the heat.

 

After halftime a lot of people tried to retreat to the shade, but there really isn't much in that stadium.

 

Can't wait to see us play again next week. Although we play a DII opponent next week, they offer 36 scholarships. Campbell offers 0. I expect a tougher game.

^yeah, someone in my group passed out and had to go to the med trailer.  If you weren't hydrating yesterday, you were going to have trouble.

TV ratings are out....

 

Charlotte got a 2.9 compared to NC State's .7 in the same time slot. Pretty good showing for a FCS program playing a crap opponent.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
