I’ve said it before on here in multiple threads…
WE wanted football…we got football
WE wanted Judy gone…we got Judy gone
WE want a name change next…we gots a name change coming
WE are literally getting large enough (enrollment size, alumni base, etc) that our voices are being heard and people are listening. It won’t stop at the name change either.
Judy gone + football + clear identity + our growth + our size + our location + our TV market= significant conference suitors coming to cement our place in the national landscape. Now sooner rather than later.
The 3 things that were holding us back…2 are gone already…the name is the last lone stumbling block and is now ready to fall out of the way.
This has been a game changer movement that started with football. Replacing Judy’s small school hidden secret mentality with Mike Hill’s progressive vision followed by the hiring of Sanchez and Healy…capped off with a identity/brand change to mimic the new found strength, pride and vision that new leadership has brought to the school.
The University of Charlotte will be the exclamation point at the end of our very loud statement…WE ARE NOT UNC…WE ARE CHARLOTTE AND DAMN PROUD OF IT!!!
***AND…Imagine the power and cache that will come once we hit 40K enrollment and roll up as the largest state school in the entire UNC system. They better listen up and play nice now…you don’t want us pissed off when we’re the new Flagship and ready to make up new rules for OUR state system!!!
