McCants Not Backing Down And Gets Personal With Former Coach Williams

Ol' Roy is probably thinking about other things he could do with that golf club about now... - USA TODAY Sports

Suggesting Ol' Roy is losing his memory is a bad move anyway, but doubly so in light of Dean Smith's struggles.

Rashad McCants has fired back at Roy Williams and UNC, saying that the best way to resolve the disagreement he's having with his teammates over academic fraud is to have them release their transcripts: quite right.

He hit Williams again, saying that he had told the truth about what Williams knew and that "[m]aybe he's getting a little old. You know, that's something that I can't ... I don't have any control over what he remembers. All I know is the truth. And I'm not up here to lie about anything."

Well if he was looking for a divorce from the program, as Williams suggested, you might look at that as filing. That's getting personal.

His argument that coaches know what's up with their players though is true.

It starts with high school, which is why we never really believed the stories about Derrick Rose and the SATs. Of course John Calipari knew that his scores jumped dramatically - so would every other coach who had recruited him had they seen the score which was ruled ineligible.

They have to know that; their job might depend on it.

But there are always oddballs. We knew a guy, very slightly, who had coached a player who became an NBA Hall of Famer. He made it a point to never discuss his player's academics; his assistants enforced it religiously, saying that it made him very nervous to hear details.

In Williams' case, we'd think that he has a better idea than that.  But that doesn't mean that McCants is fully believable.

But whatever it comes down to, UNC still needs to get to the bottom of it, and getting everyone to release their transcripts is a good idea.

Just for fun, McCants could balance that idea with an offer to take a lie detector test, on the same basic principle.
