1. They just got beat by them.
2. They were playing in the National Title game. They also asked what he would say if he was coaching Memphis.
This is a non-issue...
I am going to give it to those that disagree with me. You are much more mature and have a far greater sense of sportsmanship than I do.
With that being said, if I were a UNC fan I would be livid. Jeezusputtputtingfishsticks, I would poision that cake and for the eating it too hamster. My gawd. Hucklebery hound is a weasel. Always has been, always will be.
I think it is unfair to MickeyD, but since it has been brought up, if UNI beat ISU in the NCAA tourney and McD showed up in a with a purple rodent sticker, he would lose my support. I root for one team and one program only. I cannot imagine a head coach doing anything different. The stakes are too high. When you beach the island you have to burn the ships.
Roy Williams would have saved himself alot of headaches if he would have wore a UNC coaching shirt and a nice Jayhawk label pin......
I think what he did however is being way over blown by the media and UNC fans, but then again I have met Roy Williams and found him to be a honest man with intergerity and class.
Giving 15 years of your life to anything, I think, entitles you to support them. Its not like Roy is thinking about going back there. Then again I also support Iowa when they aren't going against ISU, its sports and I'd rather have the whole state look good.
Other than the KU logo being ridiculously large on his chest, this really was not a big deal.
Having said that, I am certain a lot of the Carolina faithful did not care for it at all...that is their right as fans.
I think the bottom line is that Roy Williams is truly a "good guy" with a "good heart". I have read and heard quite a bit about him and he was certainly not born with a golden spoon in his mouth. I believe he was raised by his mother (with no father in the picture) and she had to work two jobs or something to just make ends meet. In fact, he keeps a fridge full of Cokes in his office because, as a kid, he couldn't afford Cokes after school like the other kids.
To compare him to Rich Rodriguez is totally unfair...Rodriguez left home and alma mater after holding them over the barrel. Williams left KU for home and alma mater.
I personally think Roy Williams is a quality coach and, more importantly, a quality human being. He will have my respect until such time as he does something that I cannot respect...frankly, I don't expect that to happen.
Lastly, it is my understanding that only one kid on the KU roster was actually recruited by Williams...it has been 5 years.
