Charlotte 49er Football / Re: FIRE LAMBERT!!!!!!!!!!!
« Last post by 49r9r on Today at 02:05:03 pm »
I was at a function last night that the chancellor attended.  He asked if I was at the game last week and he could not believe how big the crowd was at the game.  I told him the crowd was great, but the game was awful.  He told me that this is only our 5th yr and the 3rd yr in FBS.  I am not sure he understands that A&T is FCS. 

I told him that we need to start looking at one deck and he told me that would be a long time since we do not need it right now.  I told him that App draws 25-30k every home game and people drive from Winston and Charlotte, and if we had a winning team we would draw 30k every game. 

He did not want to talk about it, but I told my wife when you have low expectations than you will never strive for improvement.  I was not really shocked, but he proved that until both him and Judy retires that sports will not be held accountable.

Did you ask him if he is proud to have the nation's smallest FBS stadium?  He probably does not even know.

I really thought Qon Murphy would of committed here. He was always at games and seemed really interested. But with Robb, Mangum, and Bigelow committed and Petrusev being the guy the staff is wanting to fill the last spot, i dont see qon coming here. 2K was he not as interested as I thought or did the staff just stop pursuing him?

If I were coaching I would keep the game out of Klugh’s hands. These pick sixes are a death nail. I would run the ball almost the entire game and only sneak in a few safe pass plays (this is assuming we don’t get down big early). I’d wait for GA State to turn the ball over and make the most of those opportunities. If you commit a false start or dumb holding penalty you are running until you puke next week in practice.

As someone pointed out, Tennessee State ran the ball about 42 times for 238 yards. I would repeat that formula. We have two talented backs; let's please play to our strengths.

The below link is in reference to the bolded term above. Please don't hate me. I can't help it.

i think if the coaching staff believed they had no chance with him at this point, they would not be recruiting him this hard.
I didn't mean we have no chance,  but every new offer makes it less likely.

I know, and I agree. it would be nice to see the kid post something on his twitter about mark price and company checking in to see him. maybe I am reading too much into an 18 year old's twitter account...that's recruiting I guess. I hope this kid realizes the opportunity he has if he comes to play for us. Start as a freshman, be the main guy as a sophomore. we will not recruit over him.

We will not or could not recruit over him? Because we always should be trying to get better players than we have now.

Playing at Charlotte is currently not an "opportunity". If he wants PT, then sure, he may be able to get a lot of that. But does he care about winning and the college post season success??

Knowing the assistant is our only in with this guy. We can't sell him anything else that the other schools couldn't sell 100x better.

I just want to repeat this:mobile entry did not work at the last game. They were just waving people through. This is not me causing paranoia or anything but I would not trust it.

There is yet another thread on the CUSA board about combining the Sun Belt and CUSA, and in ten pages what I learned is that neither conference wants Charlotte.  Perhaps Lambert can win on Saturday so we are not the fat kid that didn't get picked for kickball.

That is just pathetic. Actually makes my heart hurt. Sad. ☹️


If any of the fans that don't want to be in a conference with us happen to be Marshall or So. Miss. fans they need to be reminded that they lost home games to us last year.
