Maybe it’s time for Roy to retire


How did we get to this point where Carolina athletics have deteriorated to such a degree?

Not only has the current administration enabled the University’s reputation to be sullied, but our two major sports teams are a joke.

Our basketball team is no better than a 4A high school team, and Roy appears to be finished.

Maybe we should just ease his pain — and ours — and send him on his way.

Maybe we can pay someone who knows how to coach and win like John Calipari and at least get our basketball program back in shape.

I have always thought Calipari was of questionable ethics and would never fit UNC, but since the Dick Baddour era, we are forever tarnished and that no longer matters.

Let’s just put Roy into retirement and onto the golf course, where he always tells us he prefers to be, and get us a real basketball coach who can at least teach our team how to play aggressive defense before it is too late.
