Be funny if NC State got the DOT to remove the sign at their exit, too.  https://mobile.twitter.com/LMarlowe49/status/963186756408442880


Yeah construction my ass....


clt says CHeat is angering every major fan base in NC. Appy, on the other hand, has requested signs for Boone.

They cheat and now they troll. Their grads must be so proud.

I'm proud of our supporters that got the UNC sign removed from the proximity of our campus. UNC is trying to take over the entire state and bullying their way into the back yards of other campuses.

Now, the real fight needs to be about keeping the UNC medical school out of our city. UNC can have the state but we should at least get to stake claim to "our city." Charlotte has a major research university that is more than capable of supporting a medical school.

Just a few years ago the "UNC system" was making the declaration that no other medical schools are needed in our state. Then, under the cover of darkness and with swiftness, they bullied their way into our city and opened their satellite medical school. I cannot believe how complacent we are and so willing to let this happen. We already have a hospital sitting on the edge of our campus with plenty of land surrounding it that can easily be developed to  make GREAT THINGS happen. The light rail runs right by it.

If we are going to fight against a sign (and well we should), we darn well better be willing to fight for a medical school. We are THE University of Charlotte!

The Tar Heel signs have already proved contentious elsewhere. The sign along I-85 in Charlotte ended up too close to the campus of UNC-Charlotte for some tastes. After some blowback from fans of the UNC-Charlotte 49ers, NCDOT agreed to move the sign to Interstate 77 near the South Carolina line.

clt is going to suggest something outlandish. We may need a name change.
