UNCC studies adding I-AA football
UMass' basketball foe from the A10, UNCC is considering adding I-AA football.
NCAA regulations require schools with DI basketball to play I-A or I-AA football.
North Carolina is a hotbed of high school football, so the 49ers could recruit. The article states that UNCC has 21,000 students. I-AA football certainly feasible.
Now can some basketball trivia fan tell me how UNCC's nickname became "the 49ers"? What does a team from North Carolina have to do with the California gold rush?
