This is the part I truly do not understand. (Attendance) They pack 50K+ into Carter-Finley for every football game, and it would take what, 35-40% of that to fill the RBC Center for Basketball? Don't recall off the top of my head exactly how many people the RBC holds for basketball.

I am a believer that poor fan attendance can hurt recruiting. Why would a Mickey D recruit want to go play somewhere that the fans do not support the team by attending games?
I just saw the highlights on WRAL and when Wood's winning shot went thru the hoop with 2.1 seconds left, the players, including Wood, showed no emotion whatsoever, and there was no roar from the crowd. That's just sad.
The Carolina Way:
169 student-athletes had at least 1 semester where the grade in their paper class either pushed or kept their GPA above 2.0. At least 1 semester each of those students had recalculated GPA (excluding the paper class grade(s))below a 2.0. This includes 123 FB players, 15 Men's BB players. 81 students earned degrees from Chapel Hill whose recalculated final GPA excluding the grade(s) from their paper class or classes was less than the 2.0 required to graduate.
