Hate to say, but at this point would rather everything explode to ensure change for next year.

This!  I hate it, but I don't want them winning another game, give us a reason to storm CHP's house demanding for Judy to resign!  If we win 3 games the "rebuilding, proud of our guys" talk will be in full force and it will be same ol pile of you know what.

Underdog Dynasty prediction:
Quote
Charlotte at FIU (FIU -13, 7:00 PM ET, beIN)

This will be the first home game at the new Riccardo Silva Stadium. At 2-1 and 1-0 in conference play, this is a huge opportunity for the Panthers. FIU under Ron Turner loses this game. We’ll see if Butch Davis has truly changed the culture of underachieving that we know all too well from the Panthers. The offense hasn’t clicked at all so far as they are averaging 15.6 points per game and rank 104th in S&P+. Charlotte’s defense is 126th in S&P+. This is FIU’s last chance to get some things figured out offensively as they won’t face a worse defense than this in conference play.

BTW, not sure why Cyrus Smith refers to FIU's stadium as new - renamed is all that happened!

Somebody predicted we'd score 22? These guys get worse at their jobs every week.

Athlon prediction:
Quote
Charlotte at FIU
Charlotte has endured some epic struggles on offense en route to its 0–4 start. In three games against FBS opponents, the 49ers have scored a total of 14 points, including zero last week in a 28–0 loss at home to Georgia State. FIU is a work in progress under Butch Davis, but the Panthers have a chance to be 3–1 after this weekend. FIU 24, Charlotte 10

Defense scores 11 safeties?  Or perhaps only 6 safeties to go with a TD and a FG?

Just FYI if it hasn't already been addressed.... the player wearing the coveted 49 jersey this week is our long snapper whose nickname is chicken nugget...

The long snapper is 49.

I thought it was the punter?

For those of you who have VerizonWireless phones, download the go90 app on your mobile device and you can watch the game there.  You shouldn't incur any data charges if you're a VZ user.


If you're a nonVZ customer, you can still download the go90 app but I'm not sure you'll get to view the live games.  Someone should let us know. 


Obviously if you're on wifi, you're not going to incur any data from any provider.

This link is supposed to give you 30 days free via slickdeals:

It says it as you are signing up, but not initially. I would watch it closely regardless.
