Lefty Driesell was a character, a comic and an all-time great coach


Lefty Driesell’s greatest rival — and nemesis — was North Carolina Tar Heels basketball coach . Years ago, when the NCAA was considering adding a third referee, I asked Lefty how he felt about it. “I’m against it,” he said. “Why?” I asked. “Because that way, when I play Dean,” he said, “it’ll be eight against five instead of seven against five.” (Washington Post)
