How many different ways have you heard our school named over the past 3 days?!?!?!

Larry's bio on the Browns page;

Not pulling links, but I have seen at least the following since draft day:


Charlotte
UNCC
UNC-Charlotte (a favorite of the Cleveland Plain Dealer)
UNC Charlotte
Carolina 49ers
North Carolina - Charlotte
North Carolina Charlotte


BUT THE BRAND IDENTITY IS STRONG AND THERE IS NO NAME CONFUSION - Phil Dubois

Email I just sent to the Browns, cc'd Dubois:



We Charlotte 49ers alums are very proud of our first draft pick, Larry Ogunjobi! However, we noticed that the school is named incorrectly on the website for his official bio.  While the name of the school remains University of North Carolina at Charlotte (or UNC Charlotte), the Athletics Department has been known as simply "Charlotte" since a re-brand in August of 2000.  We get the name confusion all the time, and understand why it occurs (although our Chancellor, who refuses to change the university's name in full, apparently does not), but would very much appreciate your organization correcting Mr. Ogunjobi's bio on the website to reflect the proper name, "Charlotte."  Please see the third page of this pdf in the upper right hand corner, in our recent basketball media guide, showing the desire to use "Charlotte" or "Charlotte 49ers" in all media coverage.


Thank you for your consideration.

twice now i've logged into a banking/financial account from a new laptop and had to answer a series of questions to confirm who i was prior to setting up security questions.  Houses i've lived in, cars i've owned, etc.

Both times "what college did you attend" is a multiple choice question UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA is an option

It's sad that I was unsure what to answer.

clt says football is opening so many doors for exposure, and we are tripping over the sill.

CHP cited athletics, and football in particular, as the "front porch" of the university. Seems to me he'd be smart enough to remove the name of that other school from our mailbox.

Larry's college is listed as "North Carolina Charlotte" on the Brown's roster page. Austin Duke and Kalif Phillips are correct.
(08:50:08) The_White_Samurai: 90% of farts that come from a diet such as Hooner's result in bleeding.

(10:25:26) NLP49: Dude, you're not Hooner. Only Hooner is.
(10:25:32) NLP49: And even he doesn't rub it in our faces.

(11:59:07) Charlotte2002: hooner's honesty is admirable

Just got an email from my work's Charlotte market president to enter a contest to win tickets to the Belk college kick off game, a panthers preseason game, or a "UNC-Charlotte 49'ers" football game. Click on the link for the sign up and it says "UNCC 49'ers"

Google is automatically sending me notifications about the San Fran / Kansas City football score tonight, probably because of my interest in the 49ers  :))
