    Really shocking news. I certainly wish Roy well. For all the hard times we give UNC and Roy, I certainly don't wish cancer on anyone, especially having dealt with it from a personal standpoint. I hope the tumor is benign and that his recovery is quick and easy.

    Well, let's hope maybe its not cancer. Maybe just a benign cyst or benign tumor.

    Although, its somewhat concerning that he has another surgery scheduled for the other kidney. Yikes.

    Get well soon, Roy. Let's face it, regardless of the vitriol spewed during the season, we're all part of the same Triangle/ACC basketball family. So you'll take my well wishes, Coach!

    A healthy rivalry needs healthy coaches. Best of luck to Roy for a quick recovery.

    He's going to be having a similar surgery on the other kidney in October.

    Shouldn't this thread be titled "Roy Williams' kidney vigil"?

    Wow. This touches me personally.
    My dad recently passed from Renal cell cancer. He fought, struggled and endured the pain for 7 yrs.
    No one deserves that misery. No one.

    Still hope every team, every game crashes and burns, but that takes a backseat to fighting for life.

    This is beyond Basketball. I wish him health and happiness... but all things being equal, the happiness can kick in AFTER he retires.

    Brian Zoubek on what was going through his mind walking to the free throw line with 3.6 seconds remaining in the 2010 National Championship game and Duke up by 1: "Fifty percent [of me is] thinking, This is what I've been dreaming of doing my entire life. Fifty percent I'm crapping my pants."

    Cancer is the enemy of all of us.

    Prayers to Roy Williams and his family as he undergoes this surgery and the next.

    Sending genuine best wishes to Roy. Basketball is pretty meaningless compared to this.

    So, he's faking a kidney tumor because he lost so many players in the draft?

    I can't help it. This makes me think of Coach K's back surgery in '94.

    I wish Roy a speedy recovery. I'd hate to beat his guys by 30 again. We need a good tune up from the 'Heels for a deep March run. Hang in there, Roy!

    Kinda surprised that I wish ol' roy the absolute best here. He should've gone to the Duke med center!

    I guess my hatred of unc has found at least one boundary.

    Maybe I'm worried that if something happens to roy, they'll get a good coach!

    I'm glad Roy let the professionals handle this serious situation rather than shooting the tumor off himself with his BB gun. Get well, Coach.
