    Roy Williams with KU logo

    I found it odd that Roy Williams sat in the crowd with a Jayhawk logo proudly displayed on his shirt. I understand he was there for 15 years, so he'd probably be pulling for KU, but I have to admit if UNI knocked ISU out of the tournament it would bother me to have McDermott sitting in the stands in a UNI t-shirt watching the next round. I just wanted to get everyone's take on this.

    Did he recruit all the seniors that are there now?

    Re: Roy Williams with KU logo

    I don't really have an issue with it. If Chizik went to a Texas bowl game with a Longhorn logo on I don't think I'd throw a fit. He got his roots there so I have no problem with him showing support.

    I think it was a nice gesture.

    Re: Roy Williams with KU logo

    If I was a UNC fan, I would not be happy about it... that's for sure.

    Re: Roy Williams with KU logo

    That looked very inappropriate to me - very odd. Why does Roy feel the need to "win over" KU fans? He gave them very, very good years; that should be enough.
    If I was a NC fan, it would bother me.

    Re: Roy Williams with KU logo

    UNC fans were absolutely going bananas on their boards about it - It was so insanely vile that most of the threads are now deleted about it.

    Re: Roy Williams with KU logo

    As he said in his interview, he had 11 former players there pulling for Kansas, along with recruiting two of the players that play for KU.

    It's not like he was pulling for them to beat his UNC squad...

    Re: Roy Williams with KU logo

    It did look odd, and he looked uncomfortable. IMO, he should have been wearing his Carolina Blue, but still support his former team. He might have recruited the seniors, but he never coached them.

    Re: Roy Williams with KU logo

    I don't see a problem with it.

    Even the McD example. McD went to UNI and coached at UNI. If ISU was done for the season and UNI wasn't and McD wanted to support UNI, I wouldn't have a problem with it. It is his Alma Mater.

    Now, if ISU LOST in the tournament to UNI, I might be annoyed but I still think it is all in good sportsmanship.

    Re: Roy Williams with KU logo

    I think it was nice. I'm sure he still has a ton of friends at KU and wanted to show his support. I actually think any UNC fan that is upset at this should realize Williams did have a past prior to UNC.

    Re: Roy Williams with KU logo

    He should have showed his support privately and NOT publicly. IMO: it was bad taste

    Re: Roy Williams with KU logo

    I don't think it was a bad decision on his part. KU was 14-15 yrs of his life so a little respect shown by him should not cause a big stir. The bad blood by North Carolina fans was probably more due to the spanking they took at the hands of Kansas more then their coach's actions. If he was sitting in the crowd with a Duke logo if Duke made it to the Championship game, then that's just a whole different can of worms that I wouldn't want to be in the middle of but would be fun to watch....

    Re: Roy Williams with KU logo

    i was waiting for this thread to get started...

    i kind of have mixed feelings about this... from what i heard last night, ku fans are still kind of mad that he left. if rich rodriguez showed back up at wv wearing wv clothes, would fans be all better just to see him wearing wv stuff???

    on the other side, i realize that he had deep roots with ku, and i do like to see that he still supports his old team...

    Re: Roy Williams with KU logo

    To me, all it shows is the guilt he still has for leaving Kansas.
