There's a Congressional Medal of Honor waiting for Ol' Roy for his devotion and protection of today's youth.
Williams' decision to remove the obdurate Presbyterian fan, for screaming "Miss it, Deon!" from the Smith Center was nothing short of heroic and a study in restraint. A lesser despot would have treated such insolence with a caning.
Woe is Duke. The Blue Devils aren't as good as Carolina, they don't have enough guards and ESPN thinks they're "unathletic." How will they ever manage?
Maybe Jon Scheyer, Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith can piece together enough picket-fence plays to break .500 in the ACC. Fingers crossed.
Would it have killed you to stay home? It didn't matter if you chose Duke, Carolina or State, as long as you were here.
Now we're relegated to watching Raleigh's best export in, ouch, the SEC. Here's hoping the Curse of Coach Cal doesn't follow you to the Final Four (asterisk sold separately).

"There are 347 Division I teams, so surely there's more room in the NCAA Tournament than 65 slots," say the snubbed.
Let's take baby steps, though, and expand to 72. Four play-in games for the at-large major conferences and the No. 12 seeds, and four play-in games for the No. 16 teams to get to the No. 1s (which gives the No. 16 seeds a chance to actually win a game).
Twitter is so popular among ACC basketball players, UNC walk-on Terrence Petree is the next Ashton Kutcher. Most coaches have gotten in on the Twitter fad, but it would be more interesting if they left the coachspeak for the news conferences and really took off the gloves on the Internet.
Some tweets from ACC coaches we'd actually read:
DinoDeac: @Sweatgarysweat: Told you Bill and Mary was that good.
Skinnersawinner: Maine ... URI ... Harvard ... like George III, we can't win in New England.
HeadHokie: The 140-character limit is certifiably insane.
OlRoyisthatgood: Relax, it was only a frippin' sticker.
CoachKRulez: @OlRoyisthatgood: 3 > 2
