Does anyone else absolutely burn when they see the masking tape over the "Duke" on Roy's chair when the heels come to Cameron? It makes me apoplectic. Is there any precedent for this anywhere in college basketball? Why do we allow it and what can we do about it? I, for one, would like to see Roy's chair replaced with an old rusty grey metal folding chair with nothing on it at all, or perhaps a bubblegum pink chair, or maybe a chair with a big Kansas Jayhawk on it for him to sit in. From where I'm standing, he started it, so he's fair game for the most humiliation possible.
Anyone else as offended by Roy's behavior as I am? Any other suggestions as to how we combat it?
As for the taping...lame. REAL lame. I agree with the old, rusty fold-up chair idea.
Not that I like defending Coach Williams, but he does this everywhere they play (even at home) to mark which chair is his.
You can kind of see it in this picture if you look closely.
That said, it's still pretty dumb.
Perhaps he need some tape on the floor to locate the place where he will fall when he has his annual fainting spell.
In all seriousness given the recent events at Michigan State he may want to have that looked into.
Of course, I have some concern that any retaliatory actions -- however clever -- could reduce "us" to "his" level.
I've heard that a lot of coaches mark their chair so that they don't sit in a chair that's been sweated on by a player. I suppose there is some sense in that, with the exception, of course, of Gary Williams.
Typical Roy, but I have to say it is one of the least obnoxious things that he does on a regular basis. Let him tape it, it makes him feel superior.
How about one of those trick chairs... that every time you try to sit in it a leg collapses that deposits you on the floor and then by the time you recover to examine the chair its self coorecting and stand looking perfectly normal....
Heck the whole team could join in that fun and be deserving of a special chair.
It just seems kinda petty to me.
Then again, think about who we're talking about...
No crime involved, unless you're an interior decorator...
Andre Dawkins: “People ask me if I can still shoot, and I ask them if they can still breathe. That’s kind of the same thing.”
"For decades, visiting football teams playing at Kinnick Stadium have dressed and showered in the pink locker room. The tradition was started by former Iowa coach Hayden Fry, a psychology major who said pink had a calming and passive effect on people."
Quite brilliant actually. And more importantly, hilarious.

Not to defend Roy, but I too am a chronic back pain sufferer. I'm not 100% sure, but I think his chair has extra padding or something to help with his back. At least I remember that being said during a game once. But I do know for a fact that he does it at every game, even home games. So it's not a slight at Duke.
Roy you're making ME dizzie "do it" or get off the pretend pot.
