The easiest way to pick a fight with former North Carolina head basketball coach Roy Williams is to simply say “Roy knew.” That was a go-to insult for “Anybody But Carolina” fans during an NCAA investigation into a nearly two decade academic irregularity within UNC’s AFAM department. Ultimately, North Carolina avoided any serious punishments for the scandal. Of course, Williams never used the word “scandal”, and would always substitute it with the word “junk” during those years. The junk did take its toll on North Carolina and Williams, but in the aftermath, a special team emerged to win it all in 2017. Originally published October 2021.
