In his nine games with the Dallas Cowboys, Roy Williams has 194 yards receiving. The last time he played in Philadelphia, he had 204 yards receiving. So maybe a return to Philadelphia is just what Williams needs to finally become a vital part of the Dallas offense. Acquired at the trade deadline to draw coverage from Terrell Owens, Williams has yet to catch more than three passes in a game. He has only 14 receptions over the six games he's played with Tony Romo. Time is running out for Williams and Romo to start clicking.

North Carolina Coach Roy Williams held court Sunday at Ford Field wishing someone at the NCAA would lower it. Williams is not a big fan of having the court raised three feet about the players' benches. "I do not like it at all," Williams said. "If I ever turn into an architect, I would not build a gym like that. If I'm a head coach or athletic director, I will never have a building built like that. It's just not comfortable as a coach." Williams worries about the safety of the players.

Kansas Coach Roy Williams was approached at the Allen Fieldhouse during a welcome-home celebration last Saturday after his team defeated Indiana and advanced to the Final Four. A fan asked him to autograph a 1992 NCAA tournament cap. Making small talk, the fan asked Williams if he remembered Texas El Paso, the team that eliminated the Jayhawks in the second round last season. Said Williams: "I really wanted to tell him where he could put that hat. I refused to sign it."

Before Roy Williams and the Kansas players rely too heavily on the powers of the mighty Mississippi River, they better do a little checking on the hydrology of the St. Louis area. They would discover that if one spits in the river in St. Louis, the river is the Missouri, not the Mississippi. Although the rivers join north of St. Louis, the waters aren't fully merged until some distance south of the city. The St. Louis shoreline is on the Big Muddy, and not on the Mississippi. Guess that poses a problem for the Jayhawks in New Orleans.

Welcome to the Final Four, the place amateur players love to come to . . . gamble? The week's most interesting news conference offering: North Carolina junior guard Ty Lawson's admission that he won $250 playing craps at a casino in Detroit's "Greektown" section. Tar Heels Coach Roy Williams said the story was being overblown. "I have zero problems with Ty doing it," Williams said Friday. Williams said he gambled earlier this year when his team came to Detroit to play Michigan State.

SAN ANTONIO -- Final Four weekend caps the end of Hell Week for North Carolina Coach Roy Williams, who tonight at the Alamodome finally faces up to Kansas in a NCAA national semifinal game. Asking Williams to play Kansas is like asking a boxer to fight his estranged brother. Thing is, the NCAA didn't ask, as this nightmare was mandated at the point of a bracket bayonet.

Roy Williams is coaching against Kansas -- anyone think that might be a story line? It took a lot of bracket work for this to play out.

Kansas, seeded No. 1 in the Midwest, defeated Portland State, Nevada Las Vegas, Villanova and Davidson to reach the Final Four.

It's Raymond Felton's heart that North Carolina Coach Roy Williams loves. And the attitude. It's that mouthy, cocky belief that whatever play he runs, whatever shot he takes, it's the right-thing-to-do belief in himself that point guard Felton has and Williams adores. Felton is only 6 feet 1 and he can't hit 200 pounds on the scale even when he eats cheeseburgers and pizza, but in his mind, Felton thinks he can do anything, anytime. "He's a tough little rascal," Williams said.
