    I’d be pissed if I was one that didn’t get to go. I don’t care if barry, Donald, or some other idiot is in there. Chance of a lifetime.

    Hopefully Biden wins the election and teams can once again visit the White House without a racist sexist Oompa Loompa running things

    That’s where I am.

    Beyond the whole “respect the office” aspect, that’s an opportunity that very few get. To forgo that just seems like such a waste.

    A lot of people hating on a president that’s going to be re-elected. I’d be upset if I missed my opportunity to go to the White House and meet the President of the United States all because it doesn’t seem to be the popular choice. They are obviously wrong.

    Maybe they don’t care about whether it’s popular or not.

    Maybe they just don’t like the guy.

    He's the only college basketball coach to be named "Greatest Leader" by Fortune. 48th out of 50 of the Worlds Greatest Leaders. Bill and his wife Gates came in at #1 for those interested.

    It should not be about the guy. It should be about being recognized by the White House for winning the title. Politics should not be involved. Idiots will be idiots.

    Let’s be real, Trump didn’t exactly endear himself to the people of Charlottesville.

    So politics shouldn’t be involved in a decision to meet with an elected politician?

    I am sure the school or Bennett made that decision. It should be about the office and not who is in it. They took away a once in a lifetime opportunity for those kids. I wish all politicians were independent with no party affiliation. I say get rid of everyone in congress and start over. Everyone running for Congress should be an independent. Congress gets nothing done. It is all about party and not the people. Our congress is a disgrace.

    If you ask the players and they know your preference then what do you expect them to do?

    I disagree. It's called a choice and we all have them.

    And it's UVA's decision not to go. It's their choice and it's ok if you disagree.
