If the ACC would follow suit and take its conference tournament action elsewhere, that would be massive.

Isn't the ACC tournament moving to Brooklyn or something regardless?

For the next two years anyway.

That Lt. Governor sure tries to put a whacky spin on it. "Didn't give us any warning" my a55.

"I wish the NCAA was this concerned about the women who were raped at Baylor."

That's encouraging news, and also good to see that the NC schools are making their presence felt, because the state probably doesn't care a lick what northern conference crasher schools like Syracuse and BC have to say about it.
