    Re: The Dance

    Warm up shirts need a team logo and a quote like “Pump it up!”. Not a political statement. If any member of the team doesn’t support that racist group, then they could be made to look like the bad guy. So they go along to get along. That’s not okay.

    The one political Statement I would support might be, “No politics, just basketball!”

    It is, indeed, just a shirt. A harmless shirt.

    They aren’t sitting on the sidelines chanting all game long, they aren’t preaching to the press pre and post game, they are not causing delays in the game or tournaments.

    If the team wants to wear that, they can. I would have more of a problem if they were being forced to wear this shirt by school admin against their will. I doubt they are.
    Using the shirt does not mean they associate with the “BLM” organization. It is its own statement.
    I didn’t even notice the shirts just watching the games.

    Tech52...don't know how you COULDN'T notice the shirts...sorry, we'll just disagree...it most certainly is a statement, and the reason I've personally tuned out of things like that, the NFL, etc. It's ok, I'm old and old fashioned, and I don't have to listen, watch, or adhere to political malarkey from college kids...

    Me, too, when I saw that at the beginning. Had to look up where that is and wasn’t surprised. Always pull for underdog unless they’re playing my team. So no more cheering for them for that reason.

    This! Just play the game-don’t care or want to know their views, only watch the game.

    So you’ll be good with Tech wearing “Let’s go Brandon” warmups.

    Just heard this is the first ever meeting in the NCAA's between Duke and UNC. That seems impossible to be true.

    I am not a Duke fan, but kind of hope Coach K goes out on top.

    The Dome was packed! What was the attendance?

    Saw UNC beat Tulane at the Dome waaaay back in 1976, 113-106 in 4 OTs. Tulane's entire starting lineup had fouled out. UNC was ranked #1 and had players like Phil Ford and Walter Davis.

    I didn’t see the game, but I heard the officials decided to take over the second half.

    Last night? I didn't see any such thing. The refs missed some calls, for both sides, but I didn't see where one team benefited more than the other.

    Turned out to be an entertaining game. Great comeback by KU.

    It was 70,602 for Saturday.

    Ari Temkin, who does a lot of work for SiriusXM, was on their College Sports Channel yesterday.

    He said that normally at the Final Four these stadiums will use lighting to hide the fact that there are thousands of empty seats in the 600 level/nosebleeds.

    But not on Saturday. He said it was really, really difficult to find an empty seat anywhere in the Dome other than in the very corner obstructed view seats that weren't for sale.

    It was an actual 70,000 plus in the building.
