Spangler opposes student-fee increase to start 49ers football

Former UNC-system President C.D. Spangler, Jr. wants system leaders to say no to a proposed student fee increase to help UNC Charlotte start a football team.

In a letter sent to the system's Board of Governors, Spangler, a Charlotte businessman, recalled the state statute that says the university system should be "free of expense, as far as practical"

Read more, including the letter, in "Paper Trail."

Jim, is it true that C.D. Spangler has 3 horns and keeps a 49er voodoo doll that he sticks Carolina blue pins into every night just before bed?

I have a nasty case of dick spangler and need to know if there is a cure. What do you recommend?

If the state law requires a minimum cost to the student there is a lot of deadwood expenses in Chapel Hill requiring pruning, if you are truly interested in improving the education you should prune with abandon.

Spangler is a tool of the UNC Elite.

Spangler may be a Charlotte businessman but he bleeds Carolina blue. He has never shown anything but contempt for UNCC. It was under his leadership that the UNC System shifted every taxpayer dollar possible to UNC, NCSU and the HBCUs in the system (and he only did that to keep Jesse & Al off his case).

Whatever it is Spangler has against UNCC is a mystery, but it is personal and long-standing.

In other words, who gives a #$@&*% what he thinks?
