Late game, starting at 6pm. I assume Berk will be there.

I was planning to go but with the late start I have changed my mind. With the blowout on Sat we are a huge underdog and in my opinion not worth going to the game. I can watch it on TV. Charlotte at night is really not a safe place to be in some areas at night. They had the shooting on campus last year with a couple of students killed and then they had another shooting just off campus a couple of weeks ago. Charlotte is worse than Boston on killings with the number of people killed this year has passed last years total.

There is very little parking on campus. You need to buy a parking pass to park anywhere on campus. They use a third party company that sells you a parking pass to one of their parking garages and it is a bit of a walk to their stadium. I have slowed up a bit this past year and do not walk very fast anymore. If we were competitive I would probably go but with the two bad losses I will pass on this one.

I will personally get you an Uber from the parking garage to the stadium if needed Berkman. Forget the walking, I got you.

Thanks but no thanks. My daughter was going to drive but there is a 40 % chance of rain and I am not going to sit in the rain for a blowout. They will be playing App St in a year or two and we should be better by then and I will go up there if I am still around.

The men and women are playing on Davidson this year and I will go to those games.

Hopefully the offense has improved significantly from the SIU debacle. The hurry up spread offense is largely dependent upon having the right QB to run that system. Its game 3 - has Coach Bell decided which QB he thinks is the best for his system yet? If not I'd like to see Mike Curtis take some snaps as he looked pretty good when given the chance last season.

These guys were pretty ruthless towards Berkie, cannot believe we are a 20 point dog tonight

I made the mistake of somehow thinking that this was on an actual ESPN network. But when your team is number 130 out of 130 you have to watch it alone on your cell phone in a darkened room as punishment.
