[B]Tennis???[/B] for God’s sake, are you kidding me? The amount of time it took to drive past the tennis facilities is the amount of time i spent watching 49er tennis, AND I LOVE TENNIS. I never even saw people other than parents in the stands. It also charges ZERO for admission.
From what i have seen the courts are very nice. We dont live in Buffalo, so we don’t need an indoor facility.
If this is Judy Rose’s idea of moving our athletics program forward, i ask that she [B]leave.[/B]
Please do not donate to any more of this, your 49er Club donations help fuel this. If you think we are building a program that in 5 years will be looking at football, and will be out of the Atlantic 10 you are DEAD wrong and are wasting your money.
ON TRACK TO BE FULLY FUNDED IN…3 TO 4 YEARS!!!
That will have meant you have been here 2 decades, and then we will be fully funded. Great Job!!!
i really didnt want to respond to this because of the thought of not donating because we want to increase our facilities, in a sport where we have players ranked very high in the nation, doesn’t make sense…building a tennis facility does not mean that the school does not want football, or we won’t have it, it just says we care about athletics, especially the ones we have and are trying to improve upon them to make them some of the best in the NCAA to help in recruiting and development of CHARLOTTE student athletes
think about it…we have a basketball team that was ranked 18th 2 years ago, 7 of the past ten years we went to the post season, and its about to be our 30th anniversary of our final four year…yet we still can’t sell out halton, still are not fully funded, and still have major problems getting people excited not only about the program but about our school…which therefore hinders our recruiting
i know the time is now or very soon if we want a team with a stadium on campus…but the reality is we do not have enough backing from our alumni to start one, nor is there a big name company ready to slap its name all over everything and give us millions to do it…i want a football team as bad as you do, i promise, but i also do not want to hurt our other athletic programs, coaches and student athletes who are representing charlotte with the up most class, and then turning around and giving back to the school
if i was the AD or chancellor, i too would be very timid about the starting of a football team due to the fact of the minimal support we get for our teams we have now who have proven to be successful
so my answer to this question is up your gift each year, and write judy, i promise she reads all the emails, telling her how much you want football and thats mainly why you are raising your amount your giving…cause the truth is no one is going to follow you on this, and if some do it will be minimal and have no impact on football, the only effect it will have is maybe giving one less scholarship to a very worthy student athlete…maybe a golfer for our top 25 golf team, a baseball player who could go pro and get pub like john maine, a womens soccer player for our team that was ranked as high as #9 4 years ago, or maybe a tennis player like roy sichel who’s ranked 15th in the mid east right now…or maybe just an underprivileged high school athlete, who may not be ranked in anything, no one may remember his or her name because their jersey was not retired and never had a run in with the law, but someone who was given a chance to attend a university that they may not have been able to afford if it wasn’t for our athletic scholarships…just please think before not giving, thats all i ask
