Bryan Kersey is not the Devil. I can't say as I know the man, but he comes across as a pretty cool guy. Actually most of the officials who call ACC games come off that way.
Sitting in my perch courtside at Joel Coliseum, I'm privy to the banter and give-and-take that officials engage in with coaches, players and members of the game crew along press row. The level of respect, appreciation and even genuine affinity would surprise many not so lucky as to be able to observe it from 10 feet away.
