Vols next for 49ers football?

49ers football coach Brad Lambert gave a speech Thursday, during which he said Charlotte would be playing FBS teams in the future like Virginia Tech (which we knew) and Tennessee (which we didn't know).

No contracts have been signed yet by the two schools. But if Lambert said it (or let it slip), he probably knows something, right? Look for something to be announced soon, probably for the 2018 season. Charlotte is already scheduled to play at Virginia Tech in 2019.

The 49ers' 2014 schedule is about to be finalized with a 12th game. Expect it to be against a Division II school not too far from Charlotte's campus.

And if, for whatever bizzare reason, Derek Dooley is still the coach, that's one guaranteed win for us in '18.

Just 666 days until game 1.

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

And dont just use VT either. Thats hypocrisy.

Call them "Blacksburg"

Such stupidity

No wonder it took so long for this town to do anything half right being named for a woman.

At least "Carolina" is Latin for Charles who was King of France and England

Must a gender war going on here.

So, pray tell, what is the Latin for "imbecile". Just wondering what to call you. Awaiting your pompous and sexist reply.

Queen Charlotte Sophia of Meckenburg-Strelitz Germany FYI was a dropout & got married after she turned 17 years old "given" to Englands King George III in his later 30s as a "gift".

Sophia had 16 kids. Can you believe that? She stayed barefoot and pregnant her entire life.

Any statues or pics of Queen Charlotte should realitically show a large "baby bump" otherwise its bigotry against pregnant women.

Should a 46 year old UNC system large urban university whose official name and all departments including sports is UNC-Charlotte be praising some 17 year old teen drop out who had 16 kids? Doesnt this not run contrary to the principle of the existance of higher education?

Historically the whole area was a Kings Grant from George III and
Mecklenburg-Strelitz county was split off from Anson County in 1752.

Knowing a lot of history trivia will serve you well on a quiz show. (I'll take 'Mecklenburg History' for 1 million, Alex) . In this context, however, it's not relevant. No one is "honoring" any historical figure by calling athletics "Charlotte" and only a true geek would make that connection. Normal people would take Judy Rose at her word that the change was made because "we want to stand on our own two feet". Get over yourself. We have Google now, so you have no function. If you want to actually learn something from history, go back and read your inane posts and how much effect they have had.

On a side note, I have a serious question, if you'll so much as grace me with an intelligent response rather than just spewing the same old garbage:

Honestly, honestly now, if the Charlotte 49ers are so insignificant and suck so bad, then why is it worth your time to come here every day and make sure the world knows it?

Just thought I would note that from a third person perspective, it only makes you look desperate for attention, and further solidifies that Charlotte is, in fact, relevant. If they were irrelevant then there would be no reason to hate them. There would be no emotional impact. However, here you are every day, wake up, take a shower, check facebook, and troll the Gold Mine.

This isn't the newspaper. This is a Charlotte 49ers blog for fans. It's not in your way of reading news. You must physically go out of your way to get here. Seriously, any of you regulars can answer, because I really am curious as to why this gets you off.

Why do they keep omitting the most important part "U N C" of the
UNC-Charlotte 49ers name? 70,000 alumni demand the original full UNC 49er name.

There is also an objection to pandering to a McColl-Richardson name but not their money.

The UNCC 49er football stadium should also be appropriately named PHILIP DUBOIS STADIUM who made it all possible.
