ESPN's John Saunders Defends Roy on "Sports Reporters"
Via @RL_Bynum, ESPN's John Saunders gave a full-throated defense of Roy Williams and UNC's decision to extend his contract on Sunday morning's episode of "The Sports Reporters".

The not-so-thinly-veiled shot at a player who shall no longer be named - as he did not - was pretty good as well.

WRAL is among the outlets reporting that UNC has said it will delay the release of the NCAA's notice of allegations a while longer. Chancellor Carol Folt said on Thursday it will likely be next week before the NOA is released to the public. As opposed to the last time, UNC is being much more deliberate in examining the report and detailing its response. Needless to say there is a much different administration in place this time and the school is not so naive in dealing with the NCAA or the media anymore.
