This is a sad moment that 2 programs minutes apart can’t get together after all these years.

Wow. Would never have seen this coming. Really does suck.
So I guess we’re stuck with that ugly trophy.
McKillop prob scheduled that tourney so that his boy curry didnt have to get destroyed. again.
We have no natural rivals in our conference. Mckillop and Lutz have got to work this out. This is ridiculous! We have to play Davidson! Drop the damn Winthrop game. As much as I want to play Winthrop too, Charlotte needs the rivalry with Davidson. This is BS!
Incredibly lame, but once Curry is gone and the big early season tourneys no longer want anything to do with Davidson, this rivalry will be rekindled. And we will smack them around like we normally do.
I’m looking forward with an annual rivalry with Winthrop. The sck/Peele tie-in adds a dimension the Davidson rivalry (is 26-10 really a rivalry?) lacked.

The sck/Peele situation makes this a must-see contest!
Just got off the phone with Coach Moss. He said this scheduling problem needed to be solved but if Bobby/Charlotte was willing to travel to UNCW in December he might consider reworking his schedule, LOL.
I guess Davidson is just too big time to play us?
This is pretty much an outrage. Wow. What a sad day for the City of Charlotte.
UNCW would be sweet.
This freaking sucks, I was looking forward to whipping their a$$ and drowning out Belk Gym with FORRTTYY-NINNERRSS chants.
UNCW would be sweet.
Agreed 100%. Let’s play some area teams…PLEAAAAAASE. No more random teams (please see Monmouth, UL-Lafayette, North Texas, etc).
man this is extremely disappointing
From the Davidson board:
“I would rather play in MSG any day on national TV rather than play Charlotte anywhere.”
I guess those arrogant assholes are too good to play us, at least we can all go up to boone.
Did you guys notice the jab Judy took at Bobby. Looks like there is still some bad blood here between the two of them. Davidson is gonna be top 25 this year most likely so it would have been a good year to play them. What a shame. I just hope we can replace them with someone good. Maybe UNCW?
Davidson scheduled a tournament after our game had already been scheduled. They are not willing to work this out. They do not want to play us, they can (edit: I don’t want to go to the gulag). That’s that.
oops double post
Did you guys notice the jab Judy took at Bobby.
"If this basketball game is as important to the community as the Charlotte community has shown it is and as important to the coaches as they have said it was, it's scheduling should be taken out of the hands of the basketball coaches and put in the hands of the schools' respective athletics directors, where it once resided,” Charlotte athletics director Judy Rose said.
I was surprised by this. Really a shot at Bobby by her. Kind of surprising that she’d do it so publically.
