Charlotte 49ers, Conference USA are reunited
Jessica White: I was hired at the end of 2008 and business was booming because the economy was so bad. We had a lot of people who — their unemployment ran out and this was the next step. Jenna Fliszar: If you’re unable to find a job, and you have any type of physical issue, then it really becomes a last ditch effort because the job market is so bad. Many of the cases they handled involved ailments with subjective symptoms like backache, depression and fibromyalgia, which is joint and muscle pain along with chronic fatigue. Steve Kroft: Hard to prove you’ve got it? Jenna Fliszar: Yes. And there’s really no diagnostic testing for it. Steve Kroft: Hard to deny you don’t have it. Jenna Fliszar: Correct. Steve Kroft: Out of the hundreds of people that you represented, how many of these cases involved strong cases for disability? Jenna Fliszar: Strong cases I would say maybe 30 percent to 40 percent. And then I would say half of my cases were not deserving of disability. Steve Kroft: How many of them ultimately ended up getting benefits? Jenna Fliszar: Half. We tried repeatedly to reach Binder & Binder for comment, but our phone calls were not returned.

There are guys who have been in the league who are in the same boat as new coaches coming in. There are a bunch of new faces theyre not used to seeing. So theres a lot of anticipation. Its a lot of guys sizing up something and wondering, What are we getting into? Conference USA was formed in 1995 and soon became one of the countrys top mens basketball conferences. Charlotte held its own with Cincinnati, Memphis and Marquette, winning two league tournament titles, one regular-season championship and playing in the NCAA tournament seven times. But when the league began to emphasize football in 2006, the 49ers got the boot. They moved to the Atlantic 10 until deciding to start a football program this season, with the intention of some day moving from the NCAAs Football Championship Subdivision to the Football Bowl Subdivision. Attracted by Charlottes market size and a familiarity with the school, C-USA came calling again. Basketball is what got us out of the gate, said Banowsky, explaining how C-USA got to this point. Then we had the ongoing challenge of reconciling our football schools with that. When we decided to become an all-sports league, it opened us up to where we are today. Its going to be fascinating how it works out. Major says that while C-USA schools are far-flung (from Texas to Virginia), there are still at least a few (East Carolina, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, Old Dominion, Alabama-Birmingham) close enough to Charlotte that fans can travel to them for road games. In the Atlantic 10 dominated by schools mostly in the northeast and midwest Richmond was the only school within reasonable driving distance from Charlotte.
