"NC Wil" but no UNCW on ESPN ticker...what gives?
Has anybody else noticed that ESPN and other media outlets still don't get the name right? What a joke! I know that we are down this year, but UNCW has been in the Big Dance a bunch since 2000 and people are familiar with them across the country that even remotely follow basketball. Heck even my wife would know nicknames of schools like Southern Illinois and Richmond because of the Big Dance and filling out brackets. It would be good to at least get the name right.

That's on the athletic department to contact and request correction

Come on ESPN... We don't anyone to think there is a UNC-Wilson. That would just be bad for the brand.

At this point, I don't think anyone in our athletic department cares...

I have an idea though. Thankfully, due to Alex, we have someone of an avenue to voice our concerns that perhaps will reach them. If that doesn't work, I'll contact the Seahawk Club. Perhaps they can put pressure on the AD to address the issue... lest they lose funding. Money talks, especially in years like this where they'll be closely monitoring any potential loss of funding.

What do you guys think about what Charlotte has done and kind of rebranded to just being known as Charlotte instead of UNC-C? Fans of it or not? Would that be a good move for us or not?

Because of Wilmington, Delaware, this likely wouldn't help us.

UNCW or bust.

I've told the story before, but I remember answering the phone in the SID office, identifying myself as Bricks from UNCW, and the SID correcting me to say UNC Wilmington. Unless there is internal coordination, we can't expect anyone else to consistently refer to us as UNCW.

RE: "NC Wil" but no UNCW on ESPN ticker...what gives?
This is similar to how it always gets my goat that the talking heads on CBS or ESPN always refer to the CAA as the "Colonial League". As we all know, absolutely nobody who knows anything about the CAA refers to it as anything other than the CAA. Calling it "Colonial" just shows that they don't care to know what they are talking about.

Just UNCW. As far as I know, Charlotte is the only "Charlotte" city in the U.S. and it's wildly well known. That was a very easy switch for them. That that just making it known we are UNCW would be difficult.

I'm Brick Tamland. People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

Brickles could never have that role and get away with being that much of a UNC guy 05-stirthepot

You really are obsessed with arguing about UNC, aren't you?

Just stating an obvious fact. How could one possibly be the lead marketing director for a school and visibly love another school at the same time? lol
