Troy Williams quotes

I think Coach was the best there's ever been on the court. And he was an even better person. And so it's a little staggering.feedback

Almost never saw Mark during the game tonight, because I don't focus on the other coach. But as I started to walk down there, we're jumping around, and I realized that I hadn't shook his hand. And I started down there, and it was the same kind of feeling I had when I coached against those guys that I've either coached or been my assistant. And I told him: I was sorry that it had to be against you. I know how you feel. And it was almost emotional because I do respect the youngster so, so much. And he calls me his mentor or one of his mentors, and that's a pretty damn neat thing.feedback

It's a very difficult game to call. I'm sitting over there, I'm not thinking the officials are doing a terrible job. I'm thinking our offense stinks. I told them don't worry about what the referee is doing, he missed a call (earlier), but, my God, we missed four free throws in a row, missed layups. So we were at fault just as much as anybody else.feedback

I had one dad say, We're just going to wait until the spring, and it will be over with by then, and then we'll know exactly what it was. That was two years ago.feedback

They wanted redemption. I told my team with three minutes left: 'If you had told me on the first day of practice that we would be in this position I would have taken it.' What we had to do was play the last three minutes.feedback

For 29 years, you think I should change just because you guys want me to change? And we won a couple of games in there. But the criticism about the no timeout in the Duke game, to me, that was sort of humorous, to be honest with you.feedback

So I've sort of hung my hat on that part, and I know we did nothing wrong. And I find it hard to believe that it could go that far. Do I believe again that our institution, there were some mistakes? You're darned right I do. I'm very mad, sad, ticked off, any way you want to put all that terminology about it. Embarrassed, and all those things, too. But we've received a tremendous amount of hurt already over the last three years.feedback

The next day I came running into their shoot-around and got the equipment manager, called him over. I said, Did you guys get stopped last night?' He said no. And just ruined my day. But that's the story. But I think coaches should be able to have fun with each other and he's a good guy.feedback

I got seven or eight guys wear headbands out, you know, the white headbands kind of thing. And they kicked our tails. And I went in the locker room afterwards and said, get those headbands off, I'll never see those again the rest of my life, blah, blah, blah. So, no North Carolina players have ever worn it (since). So Mark Few changed our program in some ways.feedback

I think experience takes care of some of this stuff. But when the game starts, nobody cares how long these guys had to sit at a press conference. .feedback

They change their defenses a little but not much. They're mostly a man-to-man team. That's the bottom line. And we've played some teams before that I thought we could win nine out of 10. But the national championship game, it's only one.feedback

What time do you put your guys to bed? My wife thinks he's zero for three.feedback

Were there some mistakes made? You're darned right there were. Were there some things I wish hadn't happened? You're darned right. But there were no allegations against men's basketball. Do I believe again that our institution, there were some mistakes, you're darned right I do. I'm very mad, sad, ticked off, any way you want to put all that terminology about it, embarrassed and all those things, too. But we've received a tremendous amount of hurt already over the last three years.feedback

I don't think I got that dumb that quickly. So it was the doubt that people could put in – some of them directly, some of them indirectly. But still bringing up the doubt was something that was hard to deal with. He keeps coming back, keeps coming back, keeps coming back. And I keep pushing and keep pushing. And hopefully at the end, we'll both look back on it and think it's been a great partnership.feedback

I don't think there's one second of that thing that's been a blessing. People have tested my credibility, and I haven't appreciated that. It's been used against us in recruiting.feedback

Joel didn't play very well, but I'm really thrilled he was able to get through the game and not hurt his ankle anymore, and hopefully he'll play better.feedback

You know, on game night, kids got to play. That's the bottom line. I've never won a game from the bench. I may have lost some, but I know I've never won one.feedback

I'm coaching a new group of kids. And making it back to the national championship game is amazing. Oh, you did that last year? Well, that still makes it even more amazing kind of thing.feedback

It's been love and hate. And [I say that] with tongue in cheek. Because I've been on him really hard. I really have. I'd probably say I've been on Kennedy and [former Tar Heels star Brice Johnson] harder than any players I've ever coached.feedback

We talk and work on little things all the time. You're trying to tip it out or get a rebound. We do work on those things we do talk about those things.feedback

I feel very lucky, but that's OK. We're one of only two teams playing Monday night.feedback

If it wasn't for Kennedy Meeks, we wouldn't have been in the basketball game.feedback

We had a chance to talk a little bit last night. But the good thing is that I consider those three guys friends before this happened, guys I have a ton of respect for. And then let's be honest, I've coached at two pretty good places. I've coached at Kansas and North Carolina. And it's not easy to get here, but it's easier at those two places, and I'm not trying to be humble, I'm being what I think is truthful. It's easier to get here with coaching at the places I've been coaching. I don't pat myself too much about that.feedback

And I don't think I'll see Kennedy or Isaiah pull up from three on a breaker or anything.feedback

The tough thing is that Bell's so damn athletic you can go right at him and he still blocks the shot. He's a very gifted youngster.feedback

I might be little, but I'm from western North Carolina. If you want to go outside, we'll go outside.feedback

I could give a flip about what those people want. Surprised and very disappointed. I mean, Jiminy Christmas. But other than that, I'm just being Roy. I don't know if that's good or bad. But I've never tried to be anybody else. Make some daggum shots.feedback

It was about more than just holding and hosting athletic events. To me, I always said to you I was very sad because I love the state of North Carolina. I think the people of North Carolina and the people that come live there are very proud, so that was my biggest stance on it.feedback

If we get a chance to cut down the nets, I won't give a flip if I cut my finger halfway off again.feedback

It's so corny it's ridiculous, but I tell them all the time that the teams that win, the players will get the awards and the rewards. And I truly believe that. Today's youngster is different than it was 10 years ago or 29 years ago, for sure. But you can get some kids to buy into that and believe in it, then I think they're well rewarded for it.feedback

He's a better player overall. He's better defensively, better rebounder, he can score the basket and he's just had a year for us. He's been the leader of our team on the court, on the stat sheet. I couldn't be happier for him because he's really got it the old-fashioned way. He's worked, he's put in the sweat.feedback

Kids nowadays are so much more experienced, they're so much more worldly. All the teams have high-profile players who have been very successful and were recruited really hard by several schools. People will play (experience) up if they choose to. Once you get there, you have to play the game. Yes, I think it helps for me and some our guys who were there last year to know the hoopla around it. Each coach is good enough to get their guys to focus on the games, and that's what is important.feedback

I thought it was smarter for us to go out Tuesday because some people's feet do swell when they go on the airplane. If that's going to happen to Joel, I would rather have that happen Tuesday night as opposed to Wednesday night. Hopefully by the time we get to Thursday or Friday he'll do some things in practice. I'm scared to death right now because I just don't know.feedback

And he was so happy for us. But I'm really happy for this team and the work that they've put in, the toughness that they've shown, and they're just, they're wonderful kids.feedback

Frankly, my dear, I don't give a ... I didn't care what he was talking about.feedback

I'm the guy that wanted him to come as a walk-on, so how dumb am I? He (made) some big-time plays today, big-time plays two days ago.feedback

Winning the league and winning it by two games is something we'll always be proud of. I think it is the best league. Top to bottom, there's no league in the country like it. Now we've got to back it up and do in the postseason what we did last year.feedback

That's the plan, win out and play them again.feedback
