Name The Niners!

Hello Niner Fans,

The names suggested in the poll are great! If you could choose a name other than the names on the poll, what would it be?

Nutz

There is no better name than NINER NATION.

Gang Green is too generic. UAB has a gang green and they are in our conference. Who is gang green? A gang of green people? Seriously, not that name.

Green Berets? Half the people dont even know what a beret is… includes me other than some army group. Berets have no relation to Charlotte, 49ers, or basketball. We might as well be the Green Grass Blades…

Halton Hooligans… Nice try. Lets go ahead and be a Cameron Crazies knock off. We arent a huge name. There are students are out school that couldnt name our arena. You think when people hear Halton Hooligans they are going to have any idea what we are talking about??

NINER NATION of the other hand says we are the NINERS. the only well know 49ers in college basketball. The only other NINER NATION i have heard is for teh San Fran 9ers, and that is a totally different sport and league. Plus a NATION is a strong, unified group. To add to it, there is NINERNATION.net, there is a charity formed at our school called NINER NATION CHARITY. There is a tv show in the works that will most likely be named NINER NATION TV. I dont think it will all fit together with our student wearing Halton Hooligans.

But honestly, no matter what our ‘name’ is, I’ll still be at games being a fan.

Mods, can we start flaming newbies yet? :ph34r:

Let me paraphrase your post:

We like your choices, but pick something else. ?!?!?! WTH does that even mean? And couldn’t this have gone in that other thread?

stay with niner nation the other names will be like gang green is now, and just won’t catch on.

Then…there’s always the Halton Hippies…

N.U.T.S (Niners United Toward Success) was a student spirit organization that Coach Mullins started the first or second season he was at Charlotte. Had shirts and everything. Only lasted a couple of years as I recall. I still have my N.U.T.S. shirt and was strongly considering wearing it for the TCU throwback game but the damn thing shrank up sitting in the bottom of my t-shirt drawer :o !!

I call BS on the shrinkage, you are bigNINERdaddy after all!

The NUTS were pretty vocal group back in the day. I still have a visor somewhere from back then.

My suggestion “Deez NUTS”

might as well stick with what we have considering it is catchin own like it is here at school… I wish the school would get behind the name as well …

NINER NATION.
Why do we have to change? Tradition should mean something otherwise a team/school has no real identity. They just a have a name/game/character du jour. That’s what makes some schools/teams so hard to recognize by the casual fan across the country. They keep changing their “look” so who the hell knows who’s who. But look at the teams/schools that retain, cherish and protect their traditions and everyone KNOWS who they are. For example, check out the ROCK-CHALK-JAYHAWK!! cheer tradition at Kansas. If they tried to start that hokey cheer new today, it would probably flop. But, they have done it for so long, it’s iconic and sacred to their fans and also, ESPN apparently. So, stick with tradition. It becomes COOL in time, not because someone just says it is on one particular day.

Thanks to NLP’s reminder, I will not be able to every call myself a gold nugget.

we cant really say stick with tradition can we? since Gang Green has more history here.

the main reason is cause there is nothing better.

we are the niners, and we are unified as a nation.

everyone write it “NINER NATION” at the doors tomorrow, there is suppose to be a poll or something
