Roy was asked about the USA gig...He declined. And you speak of K as if he doesn't have athletes and talent....BWAHHHHHHHAA! He probably has as many, if not more, burger boys every year than anybody else in the country. Yeah, that Jayson Williams led 2001 team wasn't very athletic, either! How in the world did they manage to win back-to-back titles with that un-athletic Grant Hill? Give me a break, dude. K is a great coach, but he's not the best in this state at present, and he wasn't the best in this state when DES patrolled the sideline at UNC.

WOW...You honestly believe Carolina is the end all, be all of college basketball don't you?

Please show me where USA basketball prefered Roy Williams to coach the Olympic team over Coach K, but Roy just wasn't interested. A link would be great.

Agree to disagree...

But asked nation wide who the better overall coach is...Its K.

CLEANER!!!?!?!?!?!?! BWAHAHAHAHAAHAHAH THAT IS A JOKE! Brush up on your recruiting my friend Roy Williams commits about 10 secondary violations a year and has done so since his days at KU.

I think you're making stuff up again. You seem to be the only one who remembers this. Is your homerism for unc clouding your thoughts again? I know you hate to see Coach K bring the gold back to the US but that doesn't mean you should make stuff up. Didn't he assist Larry Brown on the bronze winning USA team?

Yeah...Williams was on the Brown squad that was absolutely terrible and an embarrassment to the US. K has been the coach of the US team since October of 2005. I searched for some stuff on Roy being asked to coach the team but couldn't find it. If Htar wants to provide a link that would be helpful..

Yeah, K has been the USA coach since 2005, Larry Brown and his staff assembled right before the qualifiers...Not too mention that the NBA strongly encouraged the best to play in the last games and we still had our scares. OH yeah, didn't K's team get beat in the World Championship games in Toronto and have to settle for Bronze?

Unicar, man you are tremendous duke fan - way to run to the devil's aid. And you claim to be a wulfie? it's either ABC'er or dook fan, which is it...Tell ya what, you provide me the link of all those Roy NCAA violations and I'll hunt down that link.

One time since 2001 has K been beyond the sweet 16...ONE TIME! Roy's been to what, 4 or 5 final 4's in that time span and won it twice...What is K's record against Roy again? Media hype has made people believe K is the best in the land...The numbers don't back it up. Winning percentage among active coaches, is it K? Nope, it's Roy!

K has a .779 winning percentage at Duke...I didn't know 2 percentage points made that much of a difference. At the end of the day if you want to talk about championships etc...K has 3 and Williams has 2. Coach K will go down as the all-time winningest college bball coach being that he has about 250 more wins than Williams and they are roughly the same age. And I am not a Duke fan...I just understand basketball history. Like I said, Roy is a great coach (one of the all time greats) but when you are talking about game planning and coaching guys that are not lottery picks every year I don't think the comparison is close.

Here are two seperate links to secondary violations that Roy Williams was a part of. I tried to search for a link to anything that stated Roy Williams was asked to coach Team USA and turned it down. The only association he has had with Team USA is as an assistant to Larry Brown and he is currently on the Men's Junior National Committee with Lorenzo Romar, Bruce Weber, and Jay Williams, yes that Jay Williams from Duke.

Htar for once, man up and just admit you have no idea what you are talking about. Then it can be over.

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
