"Charlotte finished 4-8, winning just 37% of their games" At that rate, we could have won 111% with a perfect 12-0 season.  ;D

The article also informed us a team must 6 games to be invited to a Bowl game. When did that happen?

I was told very unoffically when I called the ticket office about something else that football tickets were to be sent mid August. Pretty sure it was a student I was talking to, so take it for what its worth. I'd not be surprised if they cut it close in spite of the two away games to start the season.

They sent an email last week saying to update your address because they were being mailed very soon.

Since we outsource the production and distribution of these tickets it is more likely that they will arrive on time than if we did them in house.  I am not saying our people are not capable, just that like most things in life expertise comes with experience and this company does this all day, every day.  Having a profit motive makes a huge difference in how you manage the process too.  Maybe I am saying that I wonder what else we could outsource.

I did not get said email. Perhaps they need to outsource their emailing as well.  :o
Good to know that tix will soon be on the way, though.

It was in the one about early single game tickets for account holders if you got that one.

Perhaps I should outsource the reading of my emails.


Actually, that's a good idea. Could free up a lot of time.

I currently outsource reading posts here. Saves me a lot of pain in the ass.

If you don't like it, you could outsource your posts too.

clt's chat board posts are provided by an algorithm that was designed by Ukrainian coders.

We could deduce that by the stunning quality of clt's posts.

Roster has been updated and an interesting new name is Jaylen Miller who played DE at Tennessee in 9 games as a reserve in 2014 before transferring to Limestone.


D-line is our most critical competition spot this year. I'd expect the staff to mix and match guys to see which units work best.


From what I've seen it looks like our D-line position groupings are

DE's : Duncan, Suydam, Carroll, Hardy, Miller, Ray, Doctor

NT's : Fain, Horne, Adams, Martin


I think we can find two decent starters out of the DE group, but the NT group is scary.

No Austin Paraison?

I thought lambert said he was showing well, though surprisingly at DE instead of DT.

Maybe the roster update isn't done. [edit] - I really don't think it is done. It's thin on #s at multiple positions and missing our other JUCO OL (Allen).

That NT crop is so thin that Adams might have to play as a frosh. Not sure what he wanted, but I thought he could have benefited from a year in our S&C program before playing. He seems to want to be Larry Ogunjobi  2.0.

I noticed his name was missing. I had high hopes for him.

I was looking forward to seeing Chrishawn Wilson play...http://247sports.com/player/chrishawn-wilson-83906

Any chance that he didn't get added to the roster yet?? Seems raw but really talented. I thought he even might be good enough to see the field as a true freshman.
