Auburn’s fans were unobtrusive during Midwest Region weekend in Kansas City, fans from North Carolina and Kentucky outnumbering them. But those there were loud. And they didn’t ... 1. Shriek at such a pitch that people lost hearing. 2. Insist the referee call carrying every time an opposing player dribbled. Or: 3. Display an insensitive banner about an injured player (see: Auburn’s Chuma Okeke using a leg scooter captioned with altered Drake lyrics). ... All of which other fans did. So they seem OK. And if you see people in orange and blue and want to be friendly, just say “War Eagle!” That’s Auburn for “Hello!”
