I got word today that the young woman in the band whose screams were picked up on TBS's microphones during the game last night received some very inappropriate responses from some fans, including the threat of violence.
I wish it was needless to say, but it's one thing to joke, and quite another to take it to that level. I don't have much time during the tournament to check on the board/comments. If you see any comments like that around, please let one of the mods or staff members know—the moderation action thread is here—so we can take the appropriate action.
College sports are fun, and silly, and sometimes we joke around to get through a slog like last night. Please keep sports fun. Much more importantly, please don't threaten or make light of violence against women.
Also, after talking with people at the game last night, it's obvious the problem was a poorly placed microphone — our photographer on the baseline and several others at the game didn't notice anything out of the ordinary.
Thankfully, the band member in question is apparently doing just fine. That doesn't excuse any comments that cross the line.
