Charlotte 49er Football / Re: Kalif Phillips signed by Packers

After watching the film it looked like Phillips did pretty well in the short amount of time he was in there.  Each time he touched the ball the 1st man didn't get him down.  He needs more film time because that is where he will show his ability to break tackles.

FAU and Marshall swung our way. Rice and FIU didn't. Everyone remove your green tinted glasses. We finished right where we deserved. I will remind everyone that in our OOC FBS games (Removing Looserville) we were outscored by 81 points. We weren't a bowl caliber team last year.


you could probably say this about quite a few "bowl teams" last year and every year.
which is why it's hard for me to get excited about bowl games. I care way more about winning the conference and even the ooc schedule than I do  any of cusa's toilet bowl tie ins.

Okay, I did donate $14.90 like 5 years ago when someone called me one time. Guess that has me in the "donor" database.

Some of us don't give enough for our eyes to matter I guess!   8) I hope our teams will soon be good enough to watch!

If we make it to a bowl this year, it will be the fastest its ever been done by a start up program. My concerns with Lambert are more with his in game strategy than his recruitment and development. We had a 3rd round draft pick and 3 other players sign UFA contracts. That's not bad for a FCS class.

This year and in particular next year will give us a better picture of whether Lambert will be able to succeed here.


And we were literally 2 x 1 pt late losses from going 6-6 and playing in a bowl last year (in our first year of bowl eligibility).......

I get nauseous when I think about that...and I do often. Sad. Soooo close....😖😡😤😩😫


Me too. I just think its kind of funny that if we had been that TINY amount better (really very little difference in the team could have done it) and won those games, how many people would be complaining about "where we are as a program" and how "sorry our coaches are", etc.  ::)

What if that FAU player got his feet inbounds? Our coaching staff isn't exceptional otherwise we would have won a FBS game at home over the last two seasons. Rice was arguably the worse FBS team in the country last season and we couldn't beat them at home with a big lead in the second half. If we don't have a FBS home win by the end of the UAB game this year Lambert should be fired on the spot.


WTH said they were?

Our coaching staff thought the "psycho" was the best option for us. Forgive me not having much trust in our coaching staff.

Having the psycho at QB  did nothing to help us compete or improve versus ODU, Temple or Eastern Michigan.  I hope we go toward a more run oriented offense myself, but also so that we can gash people down the field with play action.  We have some big strong WR's and I am really looking forward to seeing the TE transfer from California.  His highlights were impressive.  I also hope we occasionally ditch the hurry up offense so that we can manage the clock and give our defense a break.  We still are not deep enough to think that we can run other teams to the point to where they are more tired than our guys are.  The OC needs to show some evolution so that he best utilizes favorable match-ups and game situations.  Maybe we will see that.  We did finally see a QB take a snap from center last year - I was shocked.

Charlotte 49er Football / Re: Best Place to Tailgate
« Last post by NinerWupAss on Today at 01:08:07 pm »
Black lot or the grassy area between Halton and Cone Deck. If people do it right, that area could be our own version of the Grove.


I know this post is 4 years old, but with many folks moving over to the Blue lot near this area, I wonder if we could get some folks setting up in that grass area?

This sounds like fun.  Sort of a grown up version of what the students now have, which is terrific.  However, do not be upset when/if the tailgating police make you move because you know they are not going to want anyone to be any place that does not have a price tag on it.


It's next to blue lot - there's the price.  They didn't really listen to me when they were revamping the lot structure.
