Roy can't coach. He's a recruiter and nothing more. He's Calipari without the slicked back hair. - Posted by shepherdofwolves
It's no surprise that shortly after he left KU the jayhawks finally won a title.
Roy assembles great talent, and that talent can play. But if they can't run their opponents out of the gym, they can't win. It's why they got stomped by FSU and lost to Duke. It's why a younger and a more inexperienced UK team beat them. Why they almost lost to Wisconsin.
UNC was expected to be a dominant team this season, and with good reason, but they haven't been. Because Roy can't coach. He's the Mike D'Antoni of college basketball.
He'll finish with more wins than any state coach. I assure you if State was the kind of program that could attract the kind of coach that Roy is you envious people would ne singing a different tune. Since you could never in a million years get that caliber of a coach then just settle for insulting him.
The chinaman is not the issue here man.
And we wouldn't be singing a different tune. We are generally more critical of our own coaches than anyone else because dingbats like you think we should be happy settling for mediocrity.
I'm not insulting Roy, I'm merely pointing out his pros and cons as a coach. He's an incredible recruiter and can assemble great talent. PRO.
He can't coach defense, manage late game situations, or prepare his team to be effective consistently in the half-court offense. When they aren't running up and down the court with an elite pointguard, his teams suck. Or do you not remember that NIT season a few years ago?
He's a terrible x's/o's man and a mediocre motivator. Which, really, is mainly what coaching is all about.
Your average Tarheel graduate is well aware of these things. Why aren't you?
