Which one of you let the cat out of the bag?  This was supposed to remain a secret until the big announcement at a later date. 

We now have proof of this.  I checked flight-tracker and there are people flying from Birmingham (SEC Headquarters) to CLT and people have also been flying from CLT to Birmingham.

They interviewed Coach Lambert on 730am this afternoon. They didn't bring up the SEC thing till after the interview was over. They said that it was just the writer going off geography.

clt says the 49ers joining the sec will be the best thing possible for 730.

Ryan McGee may have written that article and put us in the SEC based on our TV market, but there is no way he even mentions us unless he has heard rumors at ESPN or else where about the possibility. I mean he does coverage on the SEC network occasionally.

Putting my tin-foil hat on, it's very possible ESPN has an agenda and the article could have been them trying to pull off an inception. Their role is too huge to throw out something that gets through all of their editors. All the G5 schools in this article probably got mentioned for specific reasons, and Charlotte could have been in because ESPN wanted to publically tell the SEC, "We want to be in North Carolina, don't waste your money on Tobacco Road"

C-Pip's right.  About EVERYTHING.

I agree Pip that is a possibility, our media is the main driving factor if we ever make it into the SEC.

Hmmm...ABC/ESPN owns the rights to ACC football

Exactly, ESPN doesn't have anything to gain by the Power Conferences changing schools. If SEC added NC State, or UVA, they gain those markets for SEC but lose them for ACC. Realistically they should look at the G5 School with the best combination of high ceiling and market size, given it's a market the SEC isn't in yet (Sorry Houston, UCF, USF).

This comment on the article summed it up quite well:

"Believe it or not"? What's not to believe David?

You sound more and more like Poole, Fowler and Persinger with every "know your place" inference. I wonder where NC's urban research university would be if the local fish wrap were more inclined to report the story than to inject their status quo bias. Funny, given the way the status quo approach has worked soooo well for the CO."

You failed to note Metro's comment which, predictably, echoed Scott's amazement that anyone would consider the possibility that Charlotte might improve its circumstances in future.
On a bright note, one comment did direct me on how to make HUGH sums on money just using the internet. So excited!  :p

Front of the Sports page in the printed edition.  Not sure how many people get the print version, but my office does.
