You made me curious so I googled it" "The nickname "49ers" derives from the

fact that the university's predecessor—Charlotte Center of the University of North Carolina (CCUNC – established in 1946) was saved from being shut down by the state in 1949 by Bonnie Cone, when CCUNC became Charlotte College."

So technically they are not miners. It is based on the year they were saved. Like the 76rs. Good to know.
