It might be time for North Carolina coach Roy Williams to retire the technicolor tie(s).
With their coach wearing a purple-blue-orangey-green diagonally-striped piece of neckware, the 12th-ranked Tar Heels posted their most lopsided defeat of the Williams era on Wednesday, 83-64 at Clemson.
The worst before that? The Tar Heels' 84-66 loss to Kansas in the Final Four in 2008 -- when, it appears, he was wearing a similar style, and color, of tie.
The only difference appears to be the order, and perhaps the shading, of the bright stripes. Look closely: the one from 2008 ends with blue on the bottom; the one from Wednesday night ends with green.
Never miss a local story.
Coincidence? Likely. But if he has a third in the back of his closet -- with, perhaps, a purple or orange stripe at the bottom -- it might be best to leave it there. Just in case.
