Subject FORMAL NOTICE: from Coach Roy Williams
Dear Carolina students:

Thank you for your continued support throughout this basketball season. Both our men’s and women’s teams were undefeated at home this year, and you played an exciting part in that success. We appreciate the passion you display for Carolina Basketball.

We wish all of you could attend the Final Four, but I’m pretty sure we will be able to hear you all the way out in St. Louis.

Please remember to cheer and celebrate responsibly. Our players know their actions on and off the court represent the University, and your actions also will be conveyed to a worldwide audience. Regardless of the outcome of the games, let’s show everyone what Carolina class is all about!


Roy Williams

Translation for the undergrads:
Thanks for supporting the teams this year, but when we win, don't burn down Franklin St., ok?

Dear Spartan:

Two Final Fours for our university! It's a great time to be a Spartan and to show the world how Spartans act - and celebrate - with class. Make no mistake, the world is watching. My players, and I know Coach P. feels the same way about her players, have felt your presence, support, and
enthusiasm as our teams have traveled our respective Roads to the Final Four.

You are the best. You have shown that you take great pride in our
players, your fellow students, as they represent MSU. Your celebrations have been full of Spartan Pride and they've been appropriate and respectful of

I personally thank you. And I thank you in advance for celebrations to come. I have every confidence and every expectation that our students will celebrate with class.

I promise you that our team is committed to representing you in St. Louis with the brand of excellence that has made "Spartan" synonymous with winners - on and off the court. We know you are with us and we're with you. Let's be winners together. Go Green!

Tom Izzo

In addition to what they sent the students (like my daughters), they didn't forget to tell the alumni too...

he Roads to the Final Four-leading to St. Louis and Indianapolis-are
paved in Green. What a wonderful time to be Spartans. We both want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support during this historic season. As we have said, our players have felt and been inspired by your cheers and your classy behavior. We know that brand of Spartan Support will continue this weekend. At MSU, we have so much to celebrate. Let's encourage each other to celebrate in a way that adds yet another positive chapter to a winning tradition on and off the court. And let's not tolerate those who behave otherwise. We make this pledge to you: our teams will continue to represent you in a way that evokes pride and demonstrates excellence at the highest level. As Spartans, our players take this responsibility very seriously. We ask that you join us in the commitment to responsibility-and to winning! Let's celebrate as winners in every sense of that word, and keep the focus on what it really means to be a Spartan.

So they don't trust the parents either. Like they would expect anyone on the donors lists to get drunk and burn couches or tip over police cars.
