UNC Spokesman says Roy Didn’t Endorse Obama

May 1, 2008

Of course he didn’t. Wink. A UNC basketball rep described the statement Williams made calling Obama “the next President of the United States” as “playful.” Of course Williams could have refused the Obama campaign’s request to have Obama on court. No, instead, he offered Obama some great free media in a state that loves basketball and their Tar Heels.

Apparently, someone, probably Johnny Dawkins, raised the issue that Roy Williams presence at the pick-up game involving Sen. Obama was in violation of NCAA rules. As an example of how desperate the 24 hour news networks are for controversy, Dan Abrams show The Verdict bleated the headline UNC COACH IN TROUBLE WITH NCAA OVER OBAMA PICKUP GAME. A simple phone call to the organization would have yielded the answer that the Raleigh News and Observer found out, “This is not an NCAA matter.”

    Dawkins, if it was him, should keep his mouth shut and enjoy life on the farm.

    Could have been Wojoakerklzj@ski as well.

    Gotta love a guy who sprints to and from time-outs…because that’s the only thing he can do on the court.
