Re: Wright State announcer
well i guess that is part of the reason after many many years i did not re-new all of my season tickets --
• Long Beach State has officially changed the nickname for all sports other than baseball to Beach with the NCAA. Please do not refer to LBSU basketball as the 49ers. https://www.latimes.com/sports/story/2019-11-05/long-beach-state-nickname
I actually saw a very pissy last line on the website release about this morning's game asking people to quit calling us 49ers.
Said that our teams are now called BEACH as we asked the NCAA for the change. Only baseball is called 49ers per the announcer. He sounded confused as we are......
Yesterday Murray State announcer said that students are BEACH but when you graduate that you are called 49ers.......
What a mess being seen by the outside community.....thanks Jane............
