UNC dismisses Graves from team

North Carolina coach Roy Williams announced Thursday that Will Graves, a senior forward, has been dismissed from the Tar Heels for "failure to comply with team rules."

"This is 100 percent not related to any NCAA matters on campus," Williams said in a statement released by the school. "I hate this for Will. He worked extremely hard this summer to get himself physically in the best shape he’s been in years, but he did not do everything he needed to do to be a part of our basketball program. This is a huge blow to our team, but an even bigger blow for Will. Playing for the Tar Heels meant so much to him."

Graves averaged 9.8 points per game last season.

That ranked third on the team.

LEGALIZE IT! Not only could the added revenue boost the economy, but Graves would still be on the team. Sad if he was booted for taking a toke or two. Tyler wasn't booted for getting hammered and taking a leap off a friggin' roof.

Oh well.  Will should have know better.  There is a lot of scritiny  over at UNC these days.  No coach is gonna have any patience.  The school paper is calling for Butch Davis to resign.  Though, I hate the holes, I always respected their programs.  It's sad for college sports as a whole if their basketball program is compromised.

What does, the Kentucky Wildcats have to do with it?  Still sore about last years beatin?  Still sore about UK getting to 2000 wins first?  What a loser and liar, but thats right you ought to just Give it To God, but your just a hypocrite, full of hatred strife and jeoulousy. From the heart the mouth speaks and you have a lying, jeoulous, and hateful heart to lie about another coach you know nothing about.  Now repent and be saved in the name of Jesus! Change your wicked heart.  You have to walk what you talk!!! Now repent and get saved again!! Do your first works over in Jesus name.

I wonder how Barnes will respond to the fact that Duke has landed Kyrie Irving and Austin Rivers for the next two years and he would have been able to play exclusively on the wing as the 3 like he wanted while since his committment to UNC, the athletic department has been swarmed by the NCAA (which probably won't mean much for basketball b/c Roy is a pretty upstanding guy it seems like) and now he will be asked to play in the post as a 4 a lot more often?  Like Gary said earlier in the week, I just need basketball season to be here so we can get to discussing basketball and not numnut kids and coaches doing stupid, immature things and getting in trouble.

Atta boy, Gary. I knew you'd find a way to turn salt into sugar for the Tar Heels.
Lunch is on them, right?

It was obvious to me last season when UNC with all that talent was struggling so bad to even play .500 basketball, that drugs (specifically pot) was the center of the problem.  To me it was more than obvious... he's not the only player to toke on that team, hope it's a wake up call to the rest of them.

Never liked Graves... Thought he played half-a$$ for most of his career. We'll miss his size to spell the other bigs, but that's about it. Bullock, Barnes & even Drew (now) can hit the 3 ball. Bye, Will....
