They would just lower the qualifications for bowl eligibility.

Iím pretty convinced that the future is a separate division for the G5 (or most of them).

It all depends on the money. If itís sustainable then things will stay the same. If itís not, at some point in the near future you will see some schools choosing to move down to FCS.

For a while I would imagine the G5 could be reinforced with a few FCS schools that want to give it a try.

Right now it sure SEEMS unsustainable BUT there is a lot of creative accounting going on and a lot of student fees being collected around the country.

It just may go on and on the way it is until some mega event like drastic TV revenue decreases which will trickle down to reduced revenue for G5s or state legislatures banning or reducing student fees for athletics.

The next round of TV contracts is going down - across all sports.  Hell most experts see ESPN and sports networks collapsing in the future.  Stands are empty for even top 25 SEC schools.  Ratings are down for sports in general. There is a massive shift coming.  The Alabamas and Texases are immune but mid and lower level P5 schools won't be able to hang.

Yeah I have noticed a lot of empty seats in a lot of games on TV.

If the mid and lower P5 canít keep it going then we are screwed.

May be a good thing we havenít expanded the stadium......

This is anecdotal but I see a general lack of enthusiasm for sports among a lot of people. Either your a hard core or sort of ambivalent about it. I remember lamenting to my family the other day ďnobody just goes to the game anymoreĒ.

Probably a combination of cost and too many other entertainment options.

I definitely see non sports fans rebelling about paying fees for sports when they donít watch sports. They want ala cart plans.

When you are able to unlink the big sports networks from a basic cable package then the game is over.

The fact that Disney is starting their own streaming service makes me think they are not going to be able to use their market power to keep the cable and satellite systems in line for much longer. They seem to see the future as streaming.

You all know if Judy fires Lambert she is going to pick another mediocre coach right? 

Maybe another long time assistant at a big school who is ready to take the reigns of their own team!

Or better yet, maybe someone who had a great career in the NFL!!

What we need
Jon Davis 34
Andrien White 33
Najee Garvin 32
Milos Supica 27
Jailan Haslem 16

Ryan Murphy 10
Luka Vasic 18
Hudson Price 25
McGill 5


PG Jon Davis 35
SG Andrien White 32
SF Austin Ajukwa 29
PF Najee Garvin 26
C Jailan Haslem 22

G/F Hudson Price 16
F/C Milos Supica 12
G/F Luka Vasic 12
G Ryan Murphy 8
F/C Bryant Thomas 6
G Jaylan McGill 2

No Ajukwa? Did I miss something?

Price should get minutes based on his offense. If he's cold, he needs 15-20 min.

Garvin should get as many minutes as he can handle. Get him more experience.

I am not sure those that think Price played good defense... the wing blew by him every single time.  Same for Ajukwa.  Supica and Vasic need some of their minutes.

problem is we are under the thumb of unc board of governors and they are just fine with our AD sucking
This is so important.  They love the fail.


I donít think they give us the slightest thought anymore. There several UNC system schools that have far better football and basketball programs than us.

Which assistant pursued Haslem?  Was it the same assistant who went after Devarte Watson?  Watson isn't even on the Queens roster anymore.

We seem to misfire badly with big men.  Benas would have been a better solution than Haslem.


It is hard to find a coordinated 7í man especially one that chooses to come to Charlotte.

So here is something to think about. IF Judy is considering leaving on her own there is no way she fires Lambert and hires a new coach.  She would leave that for the new AD.  If she fires Brad it means she's gonna be here at least another full year unless people turn on her.


Thanks pal............. As if I needed another reason to drink on a Sunday night

It's fun reading about Tennessee, Florida, UCLA firing head coaches because fans/boosters/AD's will not except mediocrity.  Yeah, we're not those schools, it doesn't mean we have to accept mediocrity though.  Or in our case, being the worst team in FBS.  If Lambert is not fired after this season, we should all accept losing.  That is our mission statement.  Just lose baby!

Nov 27 is the Monday after the final football game.  Hopefully we know something then.
Smart schools that know a
Move must be made do it now. Meanwhile, Judy and Phil and their thumbs up their asses.
