North Carolina coach Roy Williams predictably didn't take fondly to Maryland president Wallace Loh's recent comments. On SiriusXM College Sports Nation, Williams was asked on Wednesday morning if winning the 2017 national title had "special significance" given the backdrop of the NCAA's investigation into North Carolina's decade-plus timeline of alleged academic fraud across multiple sports (non-athletes included). Williams said yes, and added "there has been a lot of junk and people have questioned my integrity." Then he moved on to Loh, who recently said the death penalty makes sense as punishment for North Carolina after the NCAA passes judgment on the ongoing academic fraud investigation. "And then we have a president that says we should get the death penalty," Williams says in the clip below. "A president of another university. I mean, to me, that's just so silly. A guy told me one time, 'You can get a little knowledge and it turns you into an idiot, but no knowledge, you're a double idiot.' And that's about the way I look at that thing." Loh did not explicitly say he believes UNC should get the death penalty, but he did say it could be the reasonable endgame for the NCAA's Committee on Infractions. For Williams' comments in full, listen:
