|By Marc Lawrence — North Carolina head coach Roy Williams was quite hard on himself. According to Sports Illustrated, Williams was heard saying “Gotta tell (AD) Bubba Cunningham he should probably fire me, it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea.” It all came on the heels of UNC’s first home loss to Clemson in 59 years last Sunday where the Tigers had never won. The Tar Heels have lost seven of their last nine games. 8-8 North Carolina has been decimated by injuries this season and lost three first round picks to the NBA draft. They are in danger of missing their first NCAA Tournament since 2009-10.
