I saw a sample of it at Trask when McGrath was introduced. Thankfully it was a very small number there.

Have to admit this feels a little uncomfortable as a die hard mid major and uncw fan. I understand it but the love affair is somewhat nauseating and this is coming from a kid who grew up a Heels fan. I hope it raises a lot of money and anyone wearing unc gear is removed or publicly humiliated.

That's a given unfortunately.

What is the attire for an event like this? I assume it is somewhat of a formal setting with a minimum of business casual dress; you guys make it sound like there are going to be guys showing up in their championship shirt, hat and jorts.

Ha. Light blue ties are unacceptable that night.

Let me ask you guys this...would Wichita State ask Bill Self to come speak at their summer banquet. Would VCU ask Tony Bennett. This is the inherent problem UNCW faces. There is a large percentage of our fans that are one foot in, one foot out. This further acknowledges and accepts it as fact.

I'm happy for you guys. Your temporary misery has been restored by the announcement of the tipoff dinner speaker. Hopefully next week the video coordinator will resign and we can go restore talk of the purge.

Haha. I'm very happy this week. And i do see the positives of the money and excitement that could bring in. That said, you have to understand the skepticism here no?

Sure, I don't love idea of having Roy speak, but I get it. This is like Roy opening up the gym at UNCA, and it's the same reason Carolina will schedule UNCW. I don't think it's farfetched to think we get Carolina in Trask. It helps us financially even if some within the base don't love it. And, it's CB using his network, which for the last 15 years has been in Chapel Hill.

I'm not miserable. CJ rumors were my low point. Either way we'll be fine with or without him. Just think we need to be honest with ourselves on how this Roy thing looks/feels. It is pretty benign and meaningless in the grand scheme. It's ok to not like it, however.
