Roy Williams Sitting in Kansas Section with KU Shirt On During Championship Game

Ol Roy. His ego has no limits. Your team has to fly back upset over losing in the Final Four, while you yuck it up in the Kansas section.<br>

    I think that Rose is sick. He doesn’t seem to have a lot of legs on his jumper and he doesn’t have the same bounce in his step.

    CDR has been awesome. I know the Pack recruited him hard.

    Kansas has too many bodies – they play great together too. We’ll see – I think unless Rose gets an IV or something at the half, they can’t keep pace.

    I disagree about Roy’s ego. Could I be wrong? Certainly. However I think he’s a pretty classy guy. I just heard him interviewed on ESPN radio returning from a soccer game and he said he’s there because his children were there and were staying until Tuesday. He also stayed because Hansbrough was getting an(other) reward. He was there for that.

    He coached at Kansas and a lot of Kansas faithful really ripped him when he left. He’s trying to rebuild bridges that were burnt of not fault of his. I can’t blame him for that. He’s part of the Kansas family.

    I’m not only okay with him being there and wearing the Jayhawk sticker, I think it’s pretty cool.

    award… not reward.

    I respectfully disagree. I think it takes a big man to sit there and pull for the team that showed you the door just the day before yesterday.

    I would kill to have a coach like Roy Williams at NCSU.

    I think you have to look at it from the perspective of a UNC fan…and from that point, its not a good thing to see your out coached coach sitting in support of the team that just handed you your a** in the final four…

    i understand his point of view (he is part of the KU family), but he is not thinking of the UNC family in his decision to sit with KU in such a visual way…

    I’m sorry but it makes me love the guy. He trancends the UNC a-holes. He actually cares about teams and not colleges. He has the balls to wear the KU symbol and sit with people he loves. That is class. But the a-holes at UNC will never understand that. Class is above them.

    I wish we had the opportunity to argue about such petty things with respect to our coach. We lose in the Final Four…. ahh…. how nice would that be?

    Holy crap. We can edit? Spectacular work SFN.

    I don’t exactly know what to think about this. Apart of me feels that he has gone too far by doing this just because it looks like he doesn’t want to be seen by KU fans alone, but by the entire college basketball viewing world, which seems to be a slap in the face to his own team. But…who’s to say he did tell his team before hand, asking them if they had a problem with it? As a player, I probably would have felt hurt a little, but I also would have understood.

    not sure i agree that Roy is a class act…personally (from my own experience at a bball camp when i was in junior high) i am pretty sure that he is all ego and very much about himself (but then again who isnt at that level)…

    class to me is understanding that the fanbase that supports your program is hurting right now…from my perspective i loved every minute of last nights game, but had that been an NCSU coach, i would be thinking that this guy needs to think more about winning bball games when the championship is right there for the taking…especially since he is the single biggest reason they lost that game last night…i wouldnt really care about what HE wants and how HE feels right now…i would just know that we got humbled when things couldnt have meant more…and he was the reason for the beat down…

    however, on the other hand…i really enjoyed watching that game last night…its fun to know all the carolina elite got sent home in a most rude way…lol

    Roy never won the big one with KU and he’s watching Self do it…love it! His KU legacy will be forgotten!

    how ’bout them cowboys!

    signing bonus just got upped to 8 million.

    I guess this would be like watching Bob Mckillup sitting in the Davidson section rooting for the team that beat nc state in the semi’s. Wait, state didn’t hire Mckillup two years ago. Never mind.

    I think Roy is all show and appearance. He has gotten confortable in his own skin and that is liberating. It rubs people the wrong way however and I’m sure he has alienated some hole fans. So be it. He will never change and won’t be there too much longer.

    reading Inside Carolina makes me feel much better about being a NCState fan… even after this tough year.

    It makes me laugh too… that was much needed.

  17. Sweet jumper 04/07/2008 at 11:28 PM #

    Tonight’s game makes me even prouder of Davidson. They took Kansas to the buzzer, and then Kansas went on to win it all.

    please somebody photo shop ROY in the KU sticker shirt with the “I still don’t give a Sh%t about Carolina” quote

    You do have to wonder about the timing of the whole thing. Agree or disagree with ‘ol Roy you just have to love what it does to the blue whiners!

  20. Rick 04/08/2008 at 7:08 AM #

    Didn’t we get up in arms about Foulup clapping to the UNC fight song?

    If Roy had not already won a championship this would be a big deal but he has so…

  21. Wulfpack 04/08/2008 at 7:36 AM #

    As a State fan, I love it! It’s a slap in the face to the ole baby blue.

    But if this were the other way around and he was employed by State, man I’d be livid beyond belief. Roy isn’t being paid millions to cheer for Kansas and wear a Jayhawk logo, a team that waxed his team 48 hours earlier.

  22. dbo2874 04/08/2008 at 7:52 AM #

    ^ if he was employed at State his house would be burned down and his family kidnapped minutes after he was first shown with the jayhawk on his shirt.

  23. Rick 04/08/2008 at 7:52 AM #

    BTW am I the only one that finds Billy Packer intensely annoying?
    He is negative with everything he says and gets stuck on one thing and harps on it the entire game (did you know Rose worked better without a screen?).

  24. sf59 04/08/2008 at 8:09 AM #

    ^but he gives nothing to the holes unlike most of the Dickie V crowd…

  25. Wulfpack 04/08/2008 at 8:11 AM #

    ^Agreed. At times he’s very hard to listen to. Comes across as arrogant to me. CBS ought to at least consider making a change IMHO. He’s a crotchety old man!
