Charlotte @ FAU - tentatively moved to Sunday at Noon

Hurricane coming. Anyone heard that?

Should be gone by Saturday, right? Unless it blows away the stadium, the game should not be in peril.

i’d hate to wish a blown stadium on anybody, but…

Play it up here.

#FAU is monitoring Hurricane Matthew. A decision on the status of all campuses for later this week will be made by Wed., Oct. 5, at 9 a.m.

I haven’t looked in the O, but I doubt there’s any info in it. They’re too busy printing 7 or 8 free marketing promos for the cheats in chapel hill.

I knew it would be “gone” by Saturday, but I was wondering what would be in the aftermath, i.e. flooding, property damage, power outages, and yes, damaged fau stadium. Not to mention our team’s having to be there prior to game day/time.

If we don’t play, I guess that means we don’t have to read your statements after a loss telling us that winning solves everything, correct?

Best of luck to all.

We dont follow our branding guidelines, why then should we expect others to?

If it were the official athletic site, you might have a legit gripe on that front.

Hard to fault them for using our initials when characters are limited.

If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a hundred more times: As long as we’re the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, we’ll be UNCC. Simple as that.
