Roy Williams Reminds Us That He's Getting Up There In Age By Cutting His Hand Open Taking Down The Net
First Jim Boeheim pissed himself, and now Roy Williams is slicing his hand open doing something as simple as cutting down a net? I gotta say, these long tenured, highly accomplished college basketball coaches are starting to lose it right in front of our very eyes. It's easy to overlook how old they are getting because they are still animated guys that are great at their job. Look no further than their appearances in the Final Four to show you that. Still, can't say Father Time isn't showing his hand when Roy Williams can't even keep his steady enough to avoid needing medical attention during an on-court celebration. It's a credit to them that - despite not looking the least bit young - they are able to appear youthful with how well they do their job and relate to their players, but no amount of National Championships can hide the literal and figurative accidents that are reserved for men their age. If he already can't be trusted with scissors then it can't be long before we have to start worrying about Roy Williams ability to stand atop a ladder. I am not trying to prematurely ship one of the most decorated coaches in all of sports into the retirement home, but if he wants to keep his job for the foreseeable future than we better get the North Carolina staff a pair of safety scissors, and maybe one of those electric stairlifts to get him up to the rim safely. Can't be concerning ourselves with whether or not Roy Williams 'Life Alert' is going off in the midst of every victory celebration.
