Re: Gary Williams Retires
To embellish it a little more
Going back over the last 3 decades, 31 out of the last 32 NCAA Championship teams had at least one McDonalds All American on the roster. The lone exception was the Juan Dixon led 2002 Maryland Terrapins. Digging even deaper, of those 31 championship teams, 97 McDonalds players were on the rosters for an average of more than 3 per team.
I don't want to slam Bob Wade, but people really need to understand that it was not just Bias' death/Lefty leaving aftermath that Gary walked into, but huge NCAA sanctions, a new record for most losses in a year, not winning one ACC game in another year...
Gary came into the pits and left with teams that fought and a national championship
Here is the Read from the Wade era
Thank you Gary! There are not a lot of people that could or would have done what you did.
