So IF you had to



  • If you were told to make a pick, who would you want out of the 4 left to win the Championship? - -I know this is the long shot of them all - -But I think I would have to pull for S Carolina. - - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer54 100% with you. Want the Gamecocks to Cinderella their way all the way. Gonzaga a distance second. Don’t want UNC to win re: Easygate (thanks for rekindling my feelings on that one @jaybate-1.0 ) and absolutely 100% do not want Dana Altman and his players to win.

    The order of whom I think is going to win is the complete inverse of who I want to win.



  • Well that sucks - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • There had been a lot of talk the last couple of years that as long as UNC had a team capable of winning the Tournament they would push back the grade investigation so Coach Williams could retire with one more title. If UNC wins the title, it would not surprise me to see Coach Williams retire and UNC settle with the NCAA for hefty penalties that do not involve vacating a title or titles.



  • @JayHawkFanToo and if they don’t?



  • @Crimsonorblue22

    It would depend on what they have coming back. I will guess they will try to push the sanctions back until they have a down year which obviously will happen when Coach William retires; this is pretty much what they have been doing anyway.



  • @JayHawkFanToo I doubt he retires or they have a down year for awhile



  • @Crimsonorblue22

    He will be 67 shortly and with some health issues. With one more title he would have nothing left to prove and he is definitely well off financially; why not retire and enjoy life without the huge responsibility of coaching an elite program while he can.



  • @JayHawkFanToo just didn’t think he wanted to, guess you know more.



  • @Crimsonorblue22

    I don’t claim to have any insider information; My info is all second or third hand and I am just repeating what I have been reading in various media over the last couple of years.



  • Men (or women) so driven to succeed rarely are willing to retire until forced out by health or other outside factors. Neither Roy nor Bill would be content fishing for more than a couple of days. Their competitive fire burns too intensely to shut down on a dime.



  • @dylans

    If, and is is a big IF, the NCAA imposes the penalties UNC deserves, it could seriously handicap it for several seasons and I can see Coach Williams leaving and letting someone else rebuild the program.
