49ers' 1st football game: Campbell

The Charlotte 49ers' first-ever football game will be at home against Campbell on Aug. 31, 2013.

The game is scheduled to be played in a new, on-campus stadium. A time for the game hasn't been set.

The Camels -- an NCAA Football Championship Subdivision program -- are the second Pioneer League team the 49ers will play in their first season. They are already scheduled to play at Morehead State later that season.

"Each day, we get closer and closer to our first football season," said 49ers athletics director Judy Rose in a statement. "Today, we have our first opponent in sight. We are thrilled to be able to get this first game scheduled and are excited to announce that it will be at home so our fans can celebrate what is sure to be an historic occasion."

The 49ers will play at Campbell, Sept. 20, 2014.

Wow.. I'm already excited about this game, and I've got it planned. I think I'll start tailgating around 8AM.. Around 11:30 I'll throw some hamburgers on the grill... No wait, maybe I'll set up camp the night before and smoke some BBQ. I'll start drinking around 9AM, and maybe play some cornhole. This is gonna be fantastic.

Hey David....
Is there a line on the game? Niners would get 3 points for home field.

The second reference of the word "scheduled" is spelled wrong.

Currently spelled schedueled.

This will be a tough game compared to most startup programs' using NAIA schools. While Campbell doesn't offer football scholarships they will have experienced Juniors and Seniors, a luxury that my Niners may not have in abundance (JUCO transfers). It is nice to have bookends on our first season, now just 9 more games to schedule!

GO NINERS!

Could there be a more peculiar mascot for a college in North Carolina than the "camel"? The undying quest for rhyming at its best...

They need now to secure a Coach... A great candidate for the job is Pete Shinnick HC at UNC-Pembroke He has built a D2 power in 4 years from scratch. He is the son of Don Shinnick former Baltimore Colt. He is a class act and a great Coach I know because my oldest son plays at UNCP. They recruit Charlotte and the Carolinas very well which is very important.

charlotte and the creek are about as opposite as it gets in NC, but good for Charlotte scheduling this game against an in-state school

Good to know the wishes of Bonnie Cone are well honored after her passing.

Yes, We all know that Bonnie Cone always hated the Camels, and that one day when we started a football team she hoped that we would schedule the Camels for our 1st game and beat their brains in.

Bonnie Cone was not against a football team. In fact, we actually had a team when she was in charge.

UNCC 49ers in the big leagues now. LOL.

Let me set the record straight on Bonnie Cone, and then let's never bring it up again.

While I was attending there, I had a work-study job in the history dept. just a couple doors down from her office. I decided to stop fretting over rumors and ask her directly about a football team. She said she knew football would raise the school's visibility and that the students would go wild for it. But she was worried about the finances (this was in 1991, during a recession). She didn't want anything pulling money away from academics. If we could fund a football progam without harming any academic program, then she would be all for it.

And that's exactly what we have. The stadium is being built with money from seat licenses, and the program is going to be funded by student fees (and I would imagine, by a couple games each year on the road at ACC or SEC teams, which can net a visiting team up to $400k per game).

Now let's move on to other things - like making sure Norm gets to beat up a camel on the sidelines that first game.

GO NINERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

While we are developing a team lets go ahead and develop a Conference: Consisting of (FOOTBALL) Charlotte, Georgia St., App St., WCU, Chattanooga, Liberty, Coastal Carolina, Citadel, & Kennesaw & Georgia Southern. Add these teams for (BASKETBALL) N. Florida, College of Charleston, UNC-Wilmington, UNC-Greensboro, Radford.

The "Deep South Conference" would cover 6 states, 8 major Southeast Cities and the average football stadium would seat about 20,000.

The Southern Conference could consist of the private schools in the Southern and Big South Conference (9 teams)

Anonymous said...

That new stadium is going to be way too small. If Ga State can put 30,000 fans in the seats for their first game, imagine what we could potentially do.

Anonymous said...

Why would any Niner fan be happy in a conference consisting of Big South teams? We are already set to go straight to the CAA for FCS football, which is ranked tthe best FCS Conference.

MikeyNINER said...

I know for a fact we have scheduled a road game against Tennessee for our first season. The logistics are not complete yet, but we will be receiving $500,000 to play them. This information is from a friend who is interning in the UT athletic department, and it is very reliable. I guarantee it.

The "Deep South Conference" would consist of 5 football teams within 4 hours drive of Charlotte. Each team would have at least 2 teams within 4 hours. Between two of the teams in this potential conference they have won 5 National football Championships.

Of the two teams from the Big South; Two weeks ago one team was in the top 25 and another has been there in the not too far past.

The CAA would be another A-10 experience with the closest present team being Richmond.

Ryan said...

The CAA has Richmond, James Madison, William and Mary, Old Dominion, and soon Georgia State all within reasonable drives.

The Big South has very small schools and many are similar drives to the schools Charlotte could play in Virginia and Georgia in the CAA.

The CAA is the best FCS conference, has the best TV contract out of all FCS conferences, and provides Charlotte with many like minded (and sized) universities.

Thanks wonderz for your always insightful comments....gaylord.

Liberty will be leaving the Big South for the CAA shortly. The CAA will have no interest in UNCC for a two or three year stint max as they move up to FBS level football rapidly, similar to what South Florida did....

Anonymous said...

The Deep South would have 2 of the three largest universities in Georgia and/or 3 of the six largest universities in the state. With enrollments of (27,000) (21,000) (17,000). They would have 3 of the six largest universities in North Carolina. (23,000) (20,000) (17,000). On campus Liberty has 20,000 including post graduates and 50,000 online around the world.

I would replace Radford with East Tennessee. That would give The Deep South 2 of the largest universities in Tennessee (13,000) (10,000). Traveling to games would include visiting Myrtle Beach, and historic Charleston. Fall visits to Boone, Cherokee, Lynchburg VA, & Chattanooga.

CAA enrollments (Richmond has 1,800), (James Madison 18,000), (William & Mary 8,000) & (Old Dominion 24,000). Charlotte's closest rival Richmond has only 1,800 students.

Does the "Deep South" proponent know that North Carolina and Tennessee are NOT "Deep South" states?

Anonymous said...

Potential huge crowds for opening games means that if you want to be there, you'd better buy a seat license while you can. Got 2 now, thinking about 2 more...GO NINERS!!

"program is going to be funded by student fees"

So, let's make an educational experience more expensive so I can scream "touchdown"? Nice, I love the priorities. :)

Anonymous said...

TCU have no mountains but they are in the Mountain West Conference, Louisiana Tech University is not out west but they play in the West Athletic Conference, and Texas is nowhere near the Pacific Ocean but a few weeks ago they almost joined the PAC-10 Conference.

Tennessee & NC are not deep south, at least they are in the South

I heard yesterday from someone very close to Darin Spease (Assistant AD, and the guy in charge of setting up the program)that we have opponents for the first two years. Some of the dates and contracts aren't set in stone yet, but we should expect to see a fairly detailed schedule within the next month or so.
