2008 NCAA Golf East Region

I know it doesn’t start until tomorrow (15th) but didn’t see a thread started yet. Post any updates, thoughts or information here.

Go Niners!!

We’re supposed to have a big article in the Observer tomorrow. That way, others in the Charlotte community (those other than NNN members) will know we have national prominence at something.

There is soooo much going on in sports now, I don’t know if the Observer has room to mention that a top 5 ranked local golf team begins their run at a national title today. I’m guessing it will be mentioned tomorrow…

LET’S GO NINERS!!! THE RUN STARTS TODAY!!!

I have close ties to the golf team and have been bragging about their national rankings to others. I have been called a liar. And have been told the good golf teams in the state were mentioned in an article 2 weeks ago.

[B]Soon to be posted by Mike Persinger:

[/B]The Observer is right in not covering the Charlotte 49ers nationally ranked golf team and their run for a national championship. It is our position that college golf is not worth the resources and page space, and we will maintain that position until the great University of North Carolina is poised to make a run at the NCAA Men’s Golf National Championship.

I’m trying to be patient… The Observer should come through this time.

1st day jitters?

Good god who is on that Georgia team Arnold Nicklaus Woods? Seve “Chi-Chi” Trevino? Freddie “Fuzzy” Player?

Good God! Corey Nagy needs to step up. That double on 9 might hurt.

yea yea his score is the one we are throwing out right now.

Good god who is on that Georgia team Arnold Nicklaus Woods? Seve "Chi-Chi" Trevino? Freddie "Fuzzy" Player?

Didn’t we beat Georgia in a tourney earlier in the year?

Gosh, I hope I’m wrong.

But the tone of this thread indicates to me that the “big article” didn’t happen.

Heavens to betsy, how could that have occurred?

Maybe they (the paper) will do better next time…or the time after that…or the time after that…etc.

Regardless, how many times it takes, I think the Observer has the best interests of the Charlotte 49ers athletics at heart.

ETA: I just remembered why they would’ve pushed it back. Today was free (with purchase of drink) southern style chicken day at McDonalds. I’m sure they had their reporters doing background prep work for their weekend special section…“Do ACC Hoops Coaches prefer Southern Style Chicken Biscuits or Sandwiches?” with the special insert poster: See if good ole’ Coach Roy gets a medium or large drink?

We’ve got some serious work to do tomorrow…

I’m guessing since we didn’t have a great day, coupled with the fact that 3 ACC teams are ahead of us (1st time all season) that Mike P. will pick tomorrow to do a story on the ol’ hometown team!!! Any takers?

He already said there would be an article tomorrow.
