from a duke board (open practice observation)

Roy is having an affect on K and his style of play. DES and Roy have both forced teams to adapt to them, not the other way around.

"My biggest impression from the open practice was that K wants the bigs to run A LOT. Both the Plumlee brothers look very comfortable with that style of play. Could be the major factor in both getting the starting nod to begin the season."

Dude, seriously. I know you like getting Duke fans here riled up, but this is just stupid. The Plumlees are extremely athletic for their size, so why would he not have them running and taking advantage of that? What does that have to do with Roy?

So now UNC is the only team in the country that runs a fast-break? Carolina is going to be a one and out team this year as a 7 seed...You heard it here first.

No Hansblow

No Lawson

No Ellington

Ed Davis is their only impact player and Roy doesn't have his lightening quick guard to push the tempo. It is going to be George Mason all over again.

George Mason was a FF team and it was in the 2nd round. Also, LD2 is another year in (remember Quentin Thomas) Deon Thompson is back, Zeller is back from injury, Ginyard also back, Will Graves is back. Besides that we have an outstanding recruiting class in John Henson, Mcdonald, Strickland, and the Wear Twins. We'll be running 10 deep still. 3-4 seed.

HAHAHAHA, Unicar! Name 5 teams in the country with more talent than the Heels...Then name two coaches better than Roy. Roy will probably make it to the sweet 16 and maybe F4 depending on match-ups and chemistry of this team. This team is loaded with talent, though young.

I love these fan bases that KNOW their guys are going to be a year better, but LDII won't improve a lick...Love that. I suspect LDII is going to run that team right through the ACC this year.

So, if you have your players run the court a lot, you're taking a page out of Roy's coaching strategy? ok..

It also sounds like he's continuing his international influence in style that he's been doing the past few years, wonder where he picked that up...

Come on Brit, how many times does Htar have to explain to us, Roy passed on coaching the Olympic team.

yeah, I mean, there's no way Roy could've won with that team, right?

Carolina couldn't run through the ACC last year so why would they do it this year?
