Can we please stop playing in Thursday games? They're gimmicks that reek of second-tier football. It's something I'd expect from a two-bit conference like the ACC.

Also, I edited this post to remove the word "night" after Thursday. We're no longer playing Thursday night games, as the games are progressing towards mid-day. I'm sure the game will be scheduled for some asinine time like Thursday at 5:00 PM.

I don't really mind it at all. We need to drive interest up in unique ways, and this is one of the few ways we can do it.

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.

Yeah I didn't like that. Designate a home team and paint that schools logos and what not. I don't care if they leave the banners on the sidelines but the field logos just annoyed me too

Yeah I agree...that really sucks. But it will be preaseason for the NFL so I'm pretty sure it will be a Panthers field.

I think we should get a sponsor and have some kind of logo at midfield, kinda like what they do with the Chick-fil-a Kickoff. I was thinking of asking Waffle House. A lot of southerners like Waffle House. I know I do!

A lot has changed in the past year in Charlotte's Third Ward. The new uptown baseball stadium is amazing (future Carolina - UNC baseball game site) and Romare Bearden Park is basically Charlottes new 'central park' (albeit much smaller) and is in a class of its own as parks go. There are also two new 20+ storey apartment towers and a bunch of new restaurants and bars that have opened up in that neighborhood. I won't argue that Charlotte is a tourist friendly city, but there's a lot more to see and do than there used to be if you're going to be in town anyway.

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.

Buncha whiny babies. Those horrible Thurs night games have given us nothing but added national exposure over the past decade. I hope we do them until the sun burns out.

Maybe do what the Cowboys do with the Cowboys Classic. Maybe name it the Carolina Clash or something like that, and paint endzones both Carolina, with one Garnet and one Baby Blue like jcausa said.

I actually like this. It's the battle of the Carolinas right where both states meet. There needs to be a name and trophy to make it more fun. I don't mind playing UNC at all. Last year's game was good so why not. This year being the exception, but Thursday night games have done a lot for our program so I'm all for it. I might go to this one, might get some good seats.

Didn't they do that for the Independence Bowl I think? I think it was a black endzone with garnet letters. I could be wrong though, but I remember us doing an endzone like that before in a bowl game.
