On the Channel 9 Noon News, they reported the NC Highway Department said the sign announcing UNC-CH had won the 2017 NCAA Men's Hoops Title was supposed to go near the state line. Someone either demonstrated an ironic sense of humor and planted it near the U. of Charlotte or Chancellor DuBois requested they change the location. (Channel 9 did not report that 2nd sentence.)

It sounds as if they will move it in a couple of days. How hard would it be to send a University maintenance crew out there with a big trash bag and cover it up?

Dubois definitely deserves criticism in many respects, but you'd have to have one heck of a tinfoil hat to think the Chancellor had anything to do with that. University maintenance would have no more right to go out and cover it than you or I do.

The forces of good mobilized, the DOT was reasonable, and we have victory. Now if only our on the field results can begin to match the success of NNN all will be right with the world.

I will kick in for a sign celebrating Charlotte as the 2015 National College Bass Fishing Champions.  I want it on Franklin Street (Chapel Hill, not Gastonia).  Anyone with me?

Facebook is the Wal-Mart of social media, you run in to get a couple items and get out as quickly as possible. No use to even comment. Mission accomplished, let's whip that ass on March 27th.

Have at it guys


my goodness that was gross to read through... the fact that their fans don't understand Charlotte isn't Chapel Hill and the sign doesn't belong here is stupefying...  Please let us get good quickly in football and basketball, beat chapel hill and we'll just put signs up that say that we beat them with the date and score in Chapel Hill... make our own death valley but for every time we've beaten them, and we can expand to baseball too why not

I just hope our new AD doesnít try to influence the paper/radio. Let them print the truth. When stuff comes out like Judyís email about David Scott, it breeds this culture of mistrust with the media, fans, alums, students, and anybody else. Frank from WFNZ would tell you, off the air, that Judy didnít want them talking about negative things on the air when they were our flagship. In hindsight, thatís probably why they made a lot of the jokes about us. I really think thatís why Mac and Kroeger went after her so hard at the end when they realized Charlotte fans actually exist. Every program in the nation gets praise when good, and criticism when bad.

I was, admittedly, sipping some pretty strong kool aid during the FJR stuff. If you are transparent in your regular operations, which you should be as a public employee, people donít have to speculate. Speculation can lead to some wild claims being accepted as truth, especially in the social media age.

She was an AD for a different time and different university and your comments show that.

During the early 2000s when UNC Charlotte was smaller and social media didnít really exist, she could control the narrative/media relations. Unfortunately for her (fortunately for us), she wasnít built to handle the social media age.
