    We will be able to hear coaches......

    Officials as well...

    What about timeouts? Will coaches whisper? Sign language?

    Hear trash talking.....

    Could be hilarious.

    It is going to be strange not having "Go Big Blue" chants at a place hosting multiple teams.

    It'd be kind of wild if they put a cheering/applause track on during the game.

    I could see more technicals called because the officials will hear coaches call them dumb mother fvckers more clearly now.

    My friends were debating how it would affect the scoring from a gambling angle, for the over unders. I figure there will be some intensity missing that the crowds typically supply but will still be basketball

    Indoor street ball, baby.

    We’re going to find out who’s a punk ass bitch, whose moms are whores, who has the largest vocabulary.

    Will be very informative.

    Wonder if it hurts the big underdogs trying to upset the better teams? Fans usually pull for them.

    Great point. At first I thought how well we travel, but even still, there's usually 3 other teams fans pulling against us.

    I'm just hoping for some good family members. You know the ones who yell at every call, act like psychos, etc... Hopefully we can hear them well.

    This will be goddamned fascinating. Probably the tourney we all remember for as long as we live. Nuts. Very curious to see (and hear, or not hear) it.

    I guess many refs will cut back on hair gel and fake tans for the next month.

    It's going to be interesting to take away any home court advantage. Who gives a shit if Duke is playing in NC, or if UK is somewhere close. Kansas could be playing in KC and it wouldn't matter.

    Man it'd be a shame if the last Big Ten game with fans was IU losing to 6.5 Nebraska hoopers and 2 Nebraska football players. Pick it up!

    Everybody in the game should be mic'ed. coaches, players, refs. Could also borrow the canned fans noise unc used to use on radio broadcasts.

    So that monstrous fanbase we always hear about doesn’t attend tourney games?

    I wonder if UNC still has the crowd noise they used to use? Would the NCAA have to pay for that?

    I think the overall 1 seed should get a deafening, canned home crowd.

    Whoever it ends up being...

    so as you know, higher rated teams almost always go close to home. Duke and UNC often share an arena in NC. Guess which fan base shows up the most? Plus, everyone boos us.
