No surprise ... Tar Heels dominate the crowd

Charlotte is a Tar Heel town, and the Carolina blue shirts that ring much of Bobcats Arena attest to the passion here for North Carolina basketball.

The Tar Heels usually can be considered a home team in Charlotte, but the passion for Clemson here is nearly as strong because its been 46 years since the ACC tournament final.

Louise Bradley, widow of the late Clemson sports information director Bob Bradley, is in the stands telling people about that loss to Wake Forest in the 1962 final.

Clemson fans have been waiting a long time for this day, but there are a lot of fans in Charlotte who’d like to see them disappointed again.

Nice write up you Clemson homer. What garbage, why don't you just write it in that redneck orange?
