    None, but it does require effort on the athlete's part to actually take part and answer questions (of course, if only 3 are asked, not much).

    This one is on the students - I'm 36 and have no idea how to twitter. Looking forward to my 7 month old getting older so he can show me how to use technology in the future.

    Come on Joe, I'm 35 and well versed in Twitter. When your kid turns into a teen Twitter will out dated like newspapers.

    I got on Twitter and followed some athletes a few years ago, then I could not comprehend who was twitting what or decipher what the hell was being said with the acronyms and emoji's, so I gave it up.

    I asked Otis who his favorite By George blogger was and he didn't answer. Now I'm too #hurt to continue asking questions.

    From the press release about the Practice facility and other projects.

    "New Musco Lighting will be installed at EagleBank Arena as well, allowing for an improved game day atmosphere, before the start of the 2017-18 basketball season."

    I like this, maybe now they can turn the lights off pregame for a better intro.

    Still got the scoreboard, though. Oh, and complaints about the Green Machine's set list and shirts.

    But, yeah, Edwards screwing up the offseason by replacing the lighting and starting construction on the practice gym and renovating the locker rooms in the EBA.

    Not into hype and all the bs that usually comes with it but I have to admit I liked the lighting and player introductions. When we're good it could become part of an intimidation factor. TBD.

    Would concur on all points - except one - the lights were shining right in my eyes. But the video board is legit and you do see fouls and other stats on the corner LCDs.

    The sound system with the lights was a very good combination. Also - I noticed they closed off the shoulder areas in the seating bowl - which pushed everyone down to the lower sections.

    Great idea.

    Someone is thinking at the AD.

    The box it came in is legit though so it makes up for not looking like him.

    Check the post-game extra on gomason. May be the best idea of the intro you're probably going to get, I doubt it came out on anyone's camera too well.
