Game in CLT for @ECUAthletics vs @AppState_FB will be Sept. 4, 2021. Teams will also play in Greenville (2024/2026) & Boone (2025)
Hopefully the game will be on TV so Phil can watch it.

We can pray that Phil will not be chancellor in 2021.

I'm hoping it's on TV but for a different reason. The ratings will prove to App and ECU fans that no one outside of their fanbases care about them, same boat as us.

I wouldn't want a 1/1/2 with ECU. Just sayin.

We have no game scheduled that weekend and no FCS game scheduled. Looks like we'll host a Big South school while these two try to engage our city.

clt says we should have a bye that weekend. They own the market.

Gotta admit I've already dropped a troll line elsewhere regarding this game drawing about 30,000, and got a bite from a unc-tweetsie yokel saying they would have that many there themselves.  :))

It's not ideal, but I'd sign up for this in a heartbeat at this point.  Anything to get games like this on the schedule with a local rival and road games within driving distance.

There was an extended segment on WBT this morning about this game. It's getting good press, I think this was a missed opportunity for us even at the 2-1-1. Still though, if we beat Duke at The Rich the following week I will forget about this very quickly ;)

It isn't like we don't have a H/H series with App in 2018/2019.  If we beat them for either of those games their world will crumble.  Gonzo will climb to the top of the tallest build in Boone and jump--breaking his leg, because two stories is really not that tall.

Granted, setting up games with ECU should be a goal too.  We all need some "same state hate" rivalries.

Hey 49er undergrads, you are bigger than UNC-CH.  Start acting like it!
