The UNC loss was obviously a huge surprise given how poorly Maryland has played this season. But perhaps more surprising was the reaction of their fans, which has been well documented over the weekend. This morning, however, we were sent a new-to-us video featuring audio of the fans yelling at the Terps after Hansbrough bricked the would-be game winner.
Listen for the rich girl yelling, “Go back to the ghetto!”: I’ll let you make your own judgments with regards to how offensive (and possibly racist) this slur is, although I’m fairly certain she meant it in the most hateful way possible.
Hat tip also to 850 the Buzz, which blogged on the topic this morning. Both local and national media looking at the underbelly of UNC athletics today!
