Roy Williams no major villain

Tuesday, July 19, 2005

Here was the lead paragraph to The Associated Press story that went out all over America: "Roy Williams violated NCAA rules as basketball coach at Kansas by approving gifts to graduating players and others who had used up their eligibility, the school said Friday." This sounds bad, doesn't it? Williams violated rules. He approved payments. This sounds a lot like Watergate. Karl Rove has to be involved. This doesn't sound like a $50 graduation gift from an elderly woman, does it? Trouble is, that is pretty much it. (Raleigh News & Observer)
