The issue of P.J. Hairston's arrest was acknowledged on Monday for the first time publicly by North Carolina coach Roy Williams.

 

USA Today spoke briefly with Williams, who isn't rushing to judgment on what to do with Hairston in regard to punishment with the basketball team. Williams said he has "some ideas" of what might happen, but until Hairston's case is settled through the justice system, he's sitting tight and waiting it out.

 

"We are doing one thing: We are waiting until all the information comes out," Williams told USA TODAY Sports on Monday. "The good thing is, I don't have to make a decision right now because we're in summer school, fall semester has not started, basketball has not started. We're going to wait and see what happens. I've got some ideas, but right now those ideas are staying in my mind. ... I am waiting until all the facts come in and then I will take care of everything that needs to be taken care of."

No problem at all with Roy waiting for the details...

 

But how does it look for Hairston, that he supposedly already told Roy everything, and no punishment was to come?  I mean, Roy basically knows he lied the first time around now, right?  If he only told him about the weed/traffic stop...and then the rental car and gun were details he so happened to leave out initially?  I'm guessing Roy wasn't throwing around goly gee gosh darn-its after finding that out.

He'll be forced to miss his first shot then it's all good.

    • Speaking of a lack of experience at CB last year... Here is a sneak peak of the side-by-side post-draft roster comparisons I'm working on, position by position.  I happened to start tonight with CB. Here's what our roster looked like at CB on May 1 last year vs. May 1 this year (UDFAs excluded).    Obviously we didn't know who our starting CBs would be in 2016, especially since we quickly released Boykin, one of the only experienced corners on the roster at the time...  But going with the trio of Benwikere / Bradberry / Worley, among them, only 6 NFL starts, compared with 104 starts for the trio of Bradberry, Munnerlyn & Worley!  NO true veteran leader of the CBs in 2016.  What a difference a year makes.  Huge to get Captain back.  May he ball out and help us get a ring! Anything else strike you all about this comparison, or anything you would like me to add / change in terms of the presentation? I hope to be able to post new positions each day in the coming week.  Maybe 2 positions per day....
