So I will not get into the merits of his coaching career at KU or the many dramas he caused. I don't hate the guy and he helped elevate KU back to the good old pre-Owens days (yes I am skipping browns short stint). However, one thing I will absolutely not miss is his press conferences when he feels slightly miffed about something. A Choice comment...
"It's not like I'm getting a dadgum plane and flying it around to say, 'Roy fell against a wall and banged his nose' or anything."
Classic Roy speak.
Some might find it charming I just find it annoying as he tries to mix whit with what can only be taken for down home country wisdom.
Honestly it was good to see him go if only to never hear another dadgum, youngster, rascal, fellas, golly, suckers, hustled their tails off, or tell people how if they drove the lane on him he would kill them in Larryville.
He does break out the heavy ammo though and throw down not just a damn but a crap also in one quote. A new record I think.
"Regardless of what somebody else says about they have injuries too, which is a bunch of bunk, so I don't give a crap what somebody else says, but coach their own damn team, I'll coach my team -- in case anybody has heard some statements about that."
CRAPTASTIC! However he does use bunk which I think makes it a wash.
Roy.. that rascal. I would take Coach K in the 3rd Round but I would actually pay to see it. (Would they slap or punch?)
