According to ACC Now, UNC coach Roy Williams says he should not have criticized his radio show callers last week who phoned in to criticize his team.
“I wish I had not said one word,’’ Williams said during this week’s radio show on Monday night, according to a transcript on insidecarolina.com.
Last Tuesday after UNC’s win over Clemson, Williams was trying to defend his players when he said during the post-game news conference: “My radio call [show] last night stunk; everybody was talking about how they were Carolina fans for 9 million years and how bad we are. I don't give a damn how long you're a Carolina fan, those are kids in the locker room, and they played their buns off tonight. … Don't call me next week and say how good we are; keep your damn phone calls to yourself."
Now in Roy’s defense there is a group of Carolina fans who have ridiculously high expectations. These deranged loyalists think the Heels should be the undefeated National Champions every year. To that point, we put up a post last week where a “fan” asked a Yahoo! Sports columnist if it was time for a column about Williams’ underachieving at UNC. Hmmm…National Champion two out of the last six years…
Who in the ACC would be delighted with such “underachieving?” Answer: EVERYBODY save Duke and Maryland.
So this week instead of doing the call-in show, Williams just showed this video.
