I don't think the video below's all that funny. Really, it's sort of creepy — but also revealing.

While on a recent recruiting trip, UNC head coach Roy Williams was deftly videotaped, dozing off as he fought the fight we all eventually lose: the one with our eyelids. Duke Hoop Blog ran the clip on its site yesterday (and a hat tip for the post title; sometimes they just write themselves).

It's an interesting peek. This is the life of most college basketball coaches. There's so much more time spent in echoey, mostly empty gyms, where glamour and fanfare are far, far away.

This is the view of a man trying to keep up with a rival. Said rival happens to be in attendance, too, and remains alert, focused, conversating with his spry assistant, Chris Collins. They are sitting in the bleachers, just a chest pass away.



The recruiting trip took place in Fort Myers, Fla. (I do not know who was being recruited.) While Duke is bringing in terrific prospects by the truckload, Williams and North Carolina staff are suddenly sprinting to keep up, despite the fact they brought in the No. 1-rated player of 2010. After all, Mike Krzyzewski just won his fourth national title in April, Duke remains the country's best team ... while the Heels failed to even make The Tournament last year and are struggling again so far this season. You can bet Ol' Roy's shirt collars have plenty of sweat stains on them.

One last thing: If anyone brings this video to Williams' attention, you can bet he's going to be upset with the voyeuristic nature of the video. Who wouldn't be?

RoyzBoyz5, I thought you were better than that. I guess you are just frustrated right now. I understand, and dont worry Roy will "right the ship" eventually.

This was done by a duke fan. Just remember this. UNC will beat duke three times this year. Make sure you have your cam cord running at each game so you can record all the nasty words your coach will be saying to the officials


Really stat_man? The Heel's will beat Duke three times this year?
This is by far the biggest rivalry in College hoop's, and there will always be trash talking on both sides. However, that statement is beyond trash talk, and just plain stupid. I really would love to see Duke and UNC play in the ACC Tournament, so Duke can execute a reversal on that rediculous prediction you just made. But hey, good luck with that.

This just shows how selfless coaches of big time programs are.  Who knows how long it has been since he has had sleep.  No coach should have to put their health is jeopardy by depriving themselves of necessary rest.  Yes, this tells it all - 'dukehoopblog.com'  - duke trying to make N.C. look bad.  There may be nothing malicious about this but is voyeuristic in the least, are they going to follow him into the bathroom next?

So fainting is equal to sitting on the bleachers actually sleeping?  Is that what you are saying?

North Carolina Sucks and you know it.

What an idiot boy you are to bring up a video that does not even apply to the fact that your head BOY has lost it.  Making fun of a man who went dizzy and passed out...yep seems the same...moron.

Everyone knows the only reason you are upset is because K is getting ready to blow by Dean in the wins category and it eats you alive because K > Dean.  Deep down in your heart when there isn't anybody around; you admit it to yourself!
