Fake Roy Williams, Daggum Roy, speaks on NU hire, McDonald's All-American game
They say laughter is the best medicine, and Daggum Roy will make you laugh.

In Champaign, after they just lost badly at U of I, I asked about Harrison Barnes, and the defense Illinois played against him. Roy Williams responded with an anti-ESPN tirade in which he hilariously mixed metaphors, used the word “balls” and gave me a  “Repeat the dang gum question.” Full transcript here. I joked about not working for ESPN in the midst of it, and the crowded Assembly Hall media room enjoyed this whole exchange very much.  Every newspaper in the Carolinas picked it up and the Charlotte Observer  had “gumption” in place of "balls." Yes, I found that wrong and unintentionally funny as well. But enough about Roy Williams, let’s talk to Daggum Roy...
