Letters For Ol' Roy

Ol' Roy Williams has deviated from UNC's traditional path, or at least Dean Smith's path, by developing a bit of a potty mouth. He famously said, after losing in the NCAA finals, that he "[didn't] give a shit about North Carolina right now." Well now Ol' Roy's euphemistic use of the word frickin', which is a way of saying the F-word in public, has started to annoy some people. Not us! After years of hearing UNC partisans criticize Mike Kryzewski for his exuberant use of colorful language (our euphemism beats Ol' Roy's!), and how that would never happen in Chapel Hill, well, better look again. At least Krzyzewski can control his language when he's in public.
