Charlotte 49ers' Gibson named to Hermann watch list

Charlotte 49ers junior midfielder Tyler Gibson has been named to the Hermann Trophy's watch list -- college soccer's equivalent of football's Heisman Trophy.

Gibson is a two-time all-Atlantic 10 selection and was the league's freshman of the year in 2010. He was also a freshman all-American that season.

The Hermann watch list will be narrowed to 15 players in late November.

The 49ers open their season Aug. 25 at home against Denver.

The 49ers have already been ranked 3rd Nationally in one pre-season poll. The Observer should print a PRINTED article on this along with a schedule. If it was UNC-Chapel Hill, the Observer would have 7 or 8 articles on the rankings.

That is a great honor. Congratulations to Tyler.

"If it was UNC-Chapel Hill, the Observer would have 7 or 8 articles on the rankings."

UNC was ranked #1 in that same pole. I still havent seen a article about UNC soccer... maybe because nobody cares about soccer.

Sounds like a Charlotte College Owl def not a UNC-Charlotte 49er.
And some dumbass thought Dale Halton was a man? Damn. The owner of Pepsi? Where do they get these idiot hayseed bumpkin hick posers?

Look at the morons erasing the mockery of Rose who has the new nasty sweaty muddy dirty crap urine smelly male fieldhouse named for her where players walk around naked all the time. Excellent fit for Rose.
Nothing is nastier than a football fieldhouse bar none ...

The whole Sunbelt Conference is ROFFLTFAO at that one and all schools thinking this will be so EZZZZZZZZZZZZ ...

I'm assuming you haven't read the Observer in the past 2 weeks. There were no articles on this NEW ranking which just came out, but there were articles on UNC-chapel hill soccer. You must either be new to town or work for the Observer.

Anon 6:43 is so stupid he does not even know which conference the Charlotte 49ers are in or will be in.

LOL. Anon 5:18 is so warped he lied about the rankings. UNC was not ranked number 1. Typical heel fan. Perhaps he should take a nap and wake up with an "A" in Swahili.

This is a fantastic award and I know all of us are proud of Tyler. Good luck to Tyler and the rest of the Niner team this season.

Niner Fans, don't let the few tarheel fans with a chip on their shoulder get you off topic with their 2 bit cheap shots.

Even the national sports media prefers UNC-Charlotte (with the hyphen) or UNCC talking about the Conference USA teams.

If 100% of us refer to you as "moron", does that make it correct?

Thanks for taking the time to illustrate why renaming the university "University of Charlotte" would be less confusing! I'm not sure why some are so adamant that the world would end if the "UNC" were dropped. Some of examples you cite are of just plain incorrect usage.
"UNCC" is sometimes used in headlines due to space issues, but this doesn't make it correct. Remember that popular publications are NOT language usage experts.

Don't forget Cincinnati and Houston, both former rivals of the Charlotte 49ers in CUSA.

I liked how all those examples "Mr Idiot" listed referred to UNC-chapel hill as "UNC-chapel hill".

I'm not a soccer guy but since our program is becoming an elite one, I do follow it. Good to see one of our players getting national recognition.

6:45 - that post was so idiotic it was hilarious. You think a field house is only a locker room where smelly people walk around naked. Do me a favor - see if you can get inside the field house and go to coach Lambert's office. Let us know how many smelly, naked people are wandering around the football coach's office. Your idiocy knows no bounds.

Let me finish what 11:02 started. Since there are a few of you whose lives are so bereft of anything useful or meaningful that you have to spend all of your waking hours criticizing the Charlotte 49ers athletic department, making multiple comments on every blog post that the universe will cease to exist the next time the school on NC 49 is referred to as anything but UNCC... If you are so insistent on calling it UNCC, let's do that for every school in the system (some schools I don't know their nickname):

UNC-Chapel Hill Tar Heels
UNC-Charlotte 49ers
UNC-Asheville Bulldogs
UNC-Wilmington Seahawks
UNC-Raleigh Wolfpack
UNC-Boone Moutaineers
UNC-Culowee Catamounts
UNC-Greenville Pirates
UNC-Winston Salem Rams
UNC-Winston Salem II (School of the Arts)
UNC-Greensboro II Aggies
UNC-Elizabeth City

We could make adjustments for the 2 cities with 2 schools. Maybe we call the School of the Arts UNC-Clemmons, and call A&T the UNC-High Point Aggies.

Remember, you started this crap...

Too funny. Smells like some prick waterfag pedo runt hayseed hiding from community parents for yrs. Dez & Miquel want the perv real bad for messin with their younger broz.

Actually for athletes hazing can be fun and fulfilling like rolling fagz on payday Fri nite on Hay St at Bragg or rushing the frat freshies in college or beating up budding sports writers.

Stuffing some weenie waterboys head down a comode was a bit much though and coaches would frown on it unless they deserved it. Cant hold the head under too long or you'll have to throw them in the swamp with a block tied to them. Gators love it.
