There are six active Hall of Fame coaches in college basketball: Jim Boeheim, John Calipari, Tom Izzo, Mike Krzyzewski, Bill Self, and Roy Williams. In a story published on Thursday by Pete Thamel of YahooSports.com, Thamel cited sources who believe the federal investigation into college basketball could "fundamentally and indelibly alter the sport of college basketball" and many "top college basketball programs could end up compromised in some way." "When this all comes out, Hall of Fame coaches should be scared, lottery picks won’t be eligible to play and almost half of the 16 teams the NCAA showed on its initial NCAA tournament show this weekend should worry about their appearance being vacated," one of Thamel's sources said in the report. On Friday, during his pre-Louisville press conference in the Smith Center, North Carolina head coach Roy Williams was asked about the federal investigation and Thamel's new report. "(I have) plenty of mixed emotions. I feel very comfortable," Williams said. "When the phone rings at night I am not worried about that. I may worry about a lot of other things, but it ain't about that." Williams clearly does not feel overly concerned that the investigation, which dives deep into the underbelly of college basketball, AAU programs, shoe companies, handlers, and agents, will affect North Carolina.
