As fitting as it is to honor "Blind Eye" Roy, there really is only one appropriate name:

"The 2003 NCAA Runner-Up Court"

Roy couldn't win a title until he left KU for Paper Chase U. He needed better boosters with deeper pockets and no fear of NCAA bloodhounds. He'd still be the winningest coach without a title.

Dude is a great coach and this is a nice honor. People get weird with this stuff.
He's a good coach. But the specter of 18 years of fake classes and player eligibility violations right under his nose (for part of that time) is a stain on his career that's pretty hard to ignore.

But it's only a stain to those of us outside of Chapel Hill.

Sorry can't buy that. Yes some fans are oblivious. But the alums I've talked to didn't want their alma mater tainted with an academic scandal of this scale.
