Welcome alumni, fans, and friends of  Western Carolina University athletics. Let me get this out of the way first, this blog has no official or unofficial connections to Western Carolina University or the WCU athletic department.

There are literally thousands of Western Carolina fans, former players, and others who are passionate about WCU sports but live a distance from Cullowhee, and this site is dedicated to bringing information on WCU athletics to them.

We look to spread the word about Catamount athletic successes and yes, sometimes failures, using this site to provide information about Catamount sports programs that we think are important to our target audience.

As with any site, this effort can only be successful with the support of those who truly care about Catamount athletics and take the time to participate.

What can you do to help us spread the word about Purple & Gold?

1. Set this site on your favorites lists.

2. Visit us regularly and make comments often, and by all means tell your friends and other Catamount fans about the site, and spread the word.

3. Become a guest contributor or commentator. I welcome writers passionate about Western.

4. Give us feedback, and make suggestions.

 I do ask our readers to Know The Rules about who is considered a "Representative of WCU Athletics Interests"  so as to not contact any prospective WCU athlete in an attempt to assist in recruiting a potential student-athlete to Western Carolina.

Thank you for your support of all the Catamount sports teams and your support of this forum.
