I am surprised no one has related a conversation with Phil Dubois yet!

:lol: :lmao:
 
Perhaps we have already. Is Dubois a patron of Auto Bell?  I think he may have stopped to get his car cleaned before his job interview.

Didn't we have an entire forum dedicated to this once?  It's a shame it's gone.  I had some really good examples in there.  In short, if I had a dollar for everytime our school was confused with Chapel Hill...
 
1)  Our Athletics would be fully funded
2)  We'd have a football stadium, team, the works
3)  We could buy the Charlotte Observer
4)  We'd have our own law school and medical school
5)  We'd completely fund the light rail line out to the University
 
 
you get the idea.

Its very simple:
people who don't want name change like being confused with UNC. And thats the last thing I want someone to associate me with.

Confusion....

When I search UNC Charlotte, I don't get any of that. You wouldn't be trying to fabricate evidence would you? That right click menu over what your search was is a little too convenient don't you think? Besides, under the pictures it has the word "Tarheels" in bold which means it was a search perameter. :shades:

We've got more than enough evidence already. We don't need to make any up. Nice try though.

My senior year of high school my family had an exchange student from Brazil for the whole school year.  I told him I was going to UNCC and he kept thinking I was going to Chapel Hill.  When I corrected him, he said, no the one in Charlotte is UNC isn't it?  I think the day he left he finally had it straight...  That there is no school in Chapel Hill.  And Charlotte is the best university!!!  Go Niners!
Go NINERS!

Both my mom and dad cannot figure out that I graduated from UNC CHARLOTTE...they call it everything under the sun EXCEPT UNCC.....

On the flipside....my grandfather is a big wig at U of Arizona in Tucson..........he has no problem understanding the difference...although he has only stepped foot inside Halton 1 time....for my graduation.

I say this to illustrate an important fact regarding our name........the number 1 missuse of the name seems to come from people WITHIN OUR OWN STATE.  What gives?

Widespread sublimonal messaging in NC media outlets by Chapel Hill...  :mask: I TiVo'd something off of WTVI and played it at 1/7th speed and found images of Chapel Hill, Hitler, and blue puppy dogs popping up on the screen.

Every single one of my relatives in South Florida think that I graduated from Chapel Hill. I'll tell them I graduated from UNC Charlotte, and they say, "Oh, Go Tarheels." I told them that we changed our location, color, and name sometime last year, and that we are no longer the carolina blue tarheels from chapel hill; we are now the Green 49ers from Charlotte. I told them it was time for an upgrade. It was fun to confuse them.

Hypothetical question: If I told you you could change the name to University of Charlotte and add a DIAA football program tomorrow that would be DI is 10 years, but in return you could never say anything ill about Chapel Hill being called "North Carolina" or "UNC" ever again, would you take the deal?

Hmmm, I'm trying to find the connection here...  Are you saying that if we are nice to that school up 85 you would print enough to put pressure on Judy, Phil and the board?  Or is that just rehtoric?

I would be extatic! I've come to terms with the "North Carolina" thing, but I think that I would still have beef with them going by UNC. But I would rarely if ever bring it up because it is relatively pointless. I just want to be treated fair.

Not to mention I would be too busy cheering on my football team and rocking my University of Charlotte gear! Honestly, Mike, please don't even talk this way. I'm getting all excited!

No need to ask since the change would effectively divorce us from the confusion. Remove the stimulus and you remove the reaction.

Exactly what I was thinking.  That would just leave the problem to the seemingly more content schools such as UNCA, UNCG and UNCP.

That's an excellent point.  What some people from the "outside" (not you, Mike... you've obviously been here for a while and are "in the know") do not realize is that no one here that I know of actually hates Chapel Hill because they happen to be Chapel Hill.  They dislike them because they are constantly confused with them.  Not Chapel Hill's fault... but, you can see how over time it can happen.  It just gets irritating and frustrating.
 
And, I would take the football deal all day long.

OK, another question: Which has higher odds, Charlotte getting football or Charlotte changing the name of the university?
