Last night was my first live card's game in four years, the last was their first round loss in Orlando. And as a Charlotte resident (Louisville native) I know enough about the people in this town to know a vast majority of them are UNC fans. But watching the games last night I was incredibly impressed with the energy the Cardinals fans brought to the Bobcats Arena. We were much more vocal than the UT fans and surprisingly even more impressive than the Tarheel's fans that made up 90 percent of the crowd. The boys will need every bit of that support on Saturday. I'll be there with my UNC-loving buddy, and I hope everyone can maintain, if not elevate, the level of crowd noise.
Go Cards! We can beat UNC!
