Good article in the Carolina Observer (and some more fuel for the game in Cameron). I guess he won't be leaving anytime soon.

I apologize if you guys have already seen this

There's a mentally tough individual.

No wonder ol' roy had to protect him from that vicious Presbyterian fan.

Did Roy or did Roy not look like he was in tears at the presser after the game?

I almost feel badly for him. This, I suppose, is the downside of living in an area where there is such passion for college basketball.

If 90% of the people on this board saw Josh McBob or Paulus walking sown the sidewalk they would bow at their feet. Granted, they never sucked as bad as the '10 heels. That says a lot about our fans as opposed to the fairweather heel fans. Still, its sad when your fan base doesn't even support you in your home town - I kinda feel bad for the guy.

He said he eats his meals at home and plays video games to pass the time.

"I just try to avoid going out as much as possible," Thompson said. "I try to get food delivered to the house and just stay in my room. . . .I have a great life. XBox 360 and stuff. So it's good."


Isn't he enrolled in a four-year college somewhere?

Do they not have homework at the college he attends?

Like coach, like player. Roy's public lack of confidence has bled down to the team, and this is proof positive.

I have a feeling Deon's classes probably don't require him to strain himself too much.

"Like coach said, how much worse can it get, you know?" Thompson said. "I don't think there's any added pressure. We're just going to go out there and play as a team and get this win."

Roy has his players believing that it can't get much worse than it is. THAT IS GREAT LEADERSHIP ROY!! Make sure you players are focused on how bad it is and how little hope there is!! They will be lucky to win 2 more games this year.

He recently has looked as if he is eating to much fast food. By March 6th , he should be over 300 lbs.. and a candidate for next years biggest loser. Agreed this should be good ammo for the crazies!!!

I may be a Duke fan, sir, but I am also a graduate of UNC, and let me tell you one thing...

You're pretty much right. It was pretty clear to us plebes that, no, the basketball players didn't have to exert themselves too hard if they didn't want to. I can actually tell you stories.

Thanks for the link. Pretty funny. I like the part about a great life. Me thinks somebody is hanging on to that belief with all his might. He should try putting on ear muffs to make sure that reality doesn't ruin his delusions of mediocrity.
