That should be a great event to attend. And, it is also substantial that we can watch the games on TV. Let's hope Mike Gerrity enjoys his Homecoming and plays his tail off!

i'm assuming this is basketball?

assumption correct, unless otherwise specified, a reference to the Charlotte 49ers ALWAYS means basketball... maybe eventually football, but for now, ALWAYS basketball. Go Niners... are we playing Wake during the non-conference schedule?

speaking of football, what is the status of us getting a team? if there's no update, when should we expect one?

jim, any insight on the politics going on behind the scene right now?
