I'm so sick of the Thursday night crap.

A neutral site game on a Thursday? Bleh.

Thank God, those rumors of playing FSU to open the season weren't true. We better actually tackle in preseason camp if we plan on stopping Elijah Hood.

I believe the FSU opener is still in the works but for 2016.

10 years ago we needed gimmicks to drive national interest but this Thursday opener at a neutral site should officially kill this trend. Both schools are not going to be represented well and it's going to look bad on tv.

I live in Charlotte and I'm not even happy about this decision. My dad and I were planning on going to the game since it was supposed to be on a Saturday and he lives three hours away. I also think this will cause both schools to be represented poorly.

We played ECU in Charlotte a couple years ago. I went and the atmosphere was about as exciting as a root canal.

It didn't sound electric on tv. Kinda like the fans weren't into it

I am a season ticket holder and usually go to 2 away games a year along with the bowl game but I will not be going to this. I hate neutral field and Thursday night games. Cannot see this working out too well from the attendance side of things.

All of the above is same with me...I'm sick of Thursdays games. Its not good for anyone. I'm not taking 2 days off of work to travel to a game that starts at 6pm. I wish Tanner would listen to the fans because I have heard nothing but negativity regarding Thursday games over the past few years. Its fine for TV but for season ticket holders to get the shaft year after year is ridiculous. I'd probably go if this game was on Saturday but no way on Thursday.

This is the same conversation that comes up every time we play North Carolina. Charlotte has the largest Carolina alumni base outside of South Carolina. The Carolina - UNC match up is an old rivalry and a natural one that features major college programs that will field very good teams. It's a compelling match up that's within 2 hours of most of the large cities in both states and a majority of both alumni bases (I think Charlotte also has the largest concentration of UNC alumni too). It will sell out. I'm personally excited about being able to walk to see a Carolina game.

not concerned about the matchup ... a neutral site on a week night is the bigger issue

This. Charlotte is absolutely full of grads and fans from both schools and is accessible for many out-of-town fans as well. There's no way it won't be a sellout or close to it -- anyone who thinks otherwise just isn't aware of the demographics here.

As someone who lives in Charlotte, I'm obviously a fan, but am getting kind of tired of Thursday games as well. Like it or not, I suppose they've become a tradition for us.
