Roy Williams makes shrewd move to protect UNC after loss

"Roy Williams did an awful job and Virginia Tech's players did a nice job and won the basketball game." That was Roy Williams talking, not me. Williams took the blame because he can afford it. He's got a late-model national title -- 2005 -- with very low mileage. He'll be inducted into the Hall of Fame sometime in the next five years. He is not a coach who has to worry about whether the chat boards will want him fired. It was a brilliant maneuver. (Sporting News)
