Really, Roy? You're fuming about <em>not</em> winning the NIT? Is there no end to your dramatic consternation?

I suppose Roy Williams should be somewhat thankful for his team's loss Thursday night in the NIT championship game.

With a win, North Carolina would have taken on the dubious honor of becoming the first team to follow up an NCAA championship with an NIT title.

Just think of the dilemma involved for such a proud program as to how it properly should honor such an "achievement."

I don't know much, but I know that with Roy involved, there would have been tears.

Congratulations to Dayton (even though it still woefully underachieved this season), and thanks for making K-State's season resume look a little better than it already did.
