First of 3 surgeries successful for Alan Major

Charlotte 49ers men's basketball coach Alan Major successfully underwent the first of three surgeries he is scheduled to have this summer in early June. The first procedure was on one of his eyes, with a heart operation coming up in mid-July. Major will have surgery on his other eye in August.

Major, who is taking a medical leave of absence to have the operations, is still recovering from the first procedure and expected to return to work by the time school starts later in August.


-- The 49ers' season-opening football game at Campbell on Aug. 28 will start at 7 p.m., Campbell announced Thursday.

-- Match play is coming to Conference USA's men's golf championship. Teams will play 54 holes of stroke play with the top four teams advancing to a four-team seeded match-play playoff. The format change is the same as the NCAA's championship format. C-USA is the first league in the country to go to the format.

-- Charlotte long-jumper Coye Still was one of 15 recipients of Conference USA's Jim Castaneda Postgraduate Scholarship. Still who won the Atlantic 10 long jump event as a junior, will receive a $4,000 scholarship. Still, from Harrisburg's Hickory Ridge High, also received the UNC Charlotte Provost's Athletic Academic Achievement Honor.

Get well soon Coach...but nobody would blame you if you decided to hang it up and not return next season. You gotta look out for your personal health. Let Odom handle the HC spot.

How are the Alan Major Summer Basketball Camps going?

Probably will have Odom doing all the coaching... just like an actual game.

On a side note it defies logic decency honor and integrity that this rag would give more press to try to rehab Scam Newton 3 time felon pay for play criminal who made a joke out of college football and academics while going a pathetic 11-11 in HS at Westlake plus promote the old preachy pappy crook and a younger brother? Lets hope he is better than the Scammer who suckedddddddddddddddd ...

This rag is being laughed at by the world for pretending the Newton Crime Family is non-existent for over 3 yrs now.

Newton must be trying to correct his magnificant 2 yr Westlake 11-11 record having zero county state or national records or even playoff wins.

Did pappy crook preachie boy put the mojo on Gator HC Urban Meyer or what? Scammer played one semester behind the 6'4" 260 lb GREAT TEBOW T-REX ONE MAN WRECKING CREW having 2 NCAA titles, Heisman and 3 runnerups plus many ACC and nat QB records as most popular who ever played the game and later shunned by a bigoted NFL for his christianity and to not be ashamed of his beliefs before the world.
TBow had 20k APY, a record at UF.

TnT laughed at teams paid bounty to put him out. Instead TnT ended the playing careers of at least 20 MLBs over his career carried off on stretchers who were paid good bounty cash.

The NFL was scared TnT would give brain damage NFL Ds.
Over 10k ex-NFLers now in a 20 billion class action against the league claiming brain damage. They were 100% right about TnT doing that benching 600, squatting 800 and cleaning 500.
The dude was a monster man.
