Don't send mail to Roy Williams.: From the Lawrence (Kan.) Journal-World: "All mail sent to Roy Williams’ office will be treated as junk the rest of this season. Cards and letters will either pile up on the Kansas University basketball coach’s couch or be tossed into the circular file - the waste basket. 'I’m never reading another piece of mail,' Williams said calmly Monday at his weekly news conference." Somebody sent him some critical comments after the Jayhawks got off to a 3-3 start, so Roy won't read his mail. My question is, why would he even bother to make the announcement? I just assumed most coaches/players don't read much of their fan mail.

He's not thinking clearly, poor guy. His mind is clouded with terror as the date of his meeting with my Arizona Wildcats draws ever nearer....

Williams is notoriously testy about this kind of thing. remember a couple of years ago when he called KU fans a 'wine and cheese' crowd? is the mounting pressure of not having won it all getting to him? he sure is snakebitten. i pull for him, but he's awfully touchy for this kind of a high-profile job that brings high-profile pressure.

My sentiments exactly, Sean. I mean, who talks about fan mail unless it's really good? He certainly should know better.
