Charlotte 49ers Football–The Day After: Media clippings from the win over Campbell

Local and national media react to the Charlotte 49ers’ 52-7 victory over Campbell yesterday.

Let’s kick it off with a video from a friend of the site, Kevin Harward, who stayed up late for last night’s SportsCenter and caught this:

Erik Spanberg, Charlotte Business Journal: Charlotte 49ers stake their football claim, 52-7
“Someone needs to tell Brad Lambert football is harder than this.”

David Scott, The Charlotte Observer: Charlotte 49ers pummel Campbell in football opener, 52-7
“From the game’s second play from scrimmage until it all ended with a sports drink shower over coach Brad Lambert’s head, little went wrong for the Charlotte 49ers.”

David Scott, The Charlotte Observer: “Charlotte 49ers’ Mark Hogan makes history with interception return”
“Mark Hogan doesn’t remember much about the first time he played in a first game in a college football program’s history. Chances are, the memories of how he played the second time it happened will never leave him.”

Tom Sorensen, The Charlotte Observer: Charlotte 49ers football: Cheers, tears and a great start
“I’ve attended 49ers’ athletic events on and off campus since 1981. Years ago I regularly watched good basketball in a gym full of passionate fans. But nothing I’ve seen that involves the 49ers looked or felt like Saturday.”

Bret Strelow, The Fayetteville Observer: “Campbell falls at Charlotte, 52-7
“Campbell coach Mike Minter hugged counterpart Brad Lambert at midfield, took a left turn through a crowd of players and walked alone toward the palatial fieldhouse in Richardson Stadium. As he exited the field, excited students stormed it.”

Scott Hamilton, The Winston-Salem Journal: “49ers first game an unqualified success
“There’s only one first time, and the Charlotte 49ers nailed it. Now the pressure is on for an encore.”
