Roy And His Choice of Ties

Let me just say that as much as I love the job Roy has done with UNC over the past five years and despite my own incredible ineptitude in this particular area, it has to be said that he honestly wears some ugly ties.  There is just no other way to put it.

Anyway, 850 the Buzz has posted a song parody of The Eagles “Lying Eyes” with a video that highlights some of Roy’s, shall we say, more interesting tie choices over the years.

    I still remember the tie he wore during the 2005 Championship with Illinois…..I thought it was beautiful! Hope he still has it. Hope he has the chance to wear it again on Monday….

    I saw no tie in this parody that was as unharmonious with the suit as the attempt of the singer with the classic of the Eagles.

    Well that much is true but the lyrics were clever I thought.

  4. Russell says:

    Actually, I liked the singer and his low-key approach. The cleverness of the lyrics are equaled by teenagers every semester. BTDT.

    Plus, Alex Julian is way beyond these blokes in fashion sense. Wear ’em, Roy. If they don’t know any better, at least you do.

    That’s hilarious. I’ve always thought that some of those zig-zag, diamond patern and pastel stripey ones were questionable choices at best. He’s done better this year. But don’t hate on the dark blue paisley, it’s coming back! And that’s a pretty solid looking argyle sweater too, imo.
    Basketball, what?

    Honestly, he has made A LOT of questionable choices in the tie department. It’s fun to see what he’s going to wear next. Lucky for us, it doesn’t f***ing matter what he wears. He can coach his ass off and that’s all that matters.

  8. Russell says:

    Yo, Chris-
    Look at it. It ain’t the ties, it’s what he combines them with, no? The ties are OK; the suits/blazers are OK. Yes? Unfortunately, he does not have Alex there to guide him when choosing ensembles. But…not that you care, right?

    You care about his coaching. Perhaps his recruiting? And perhaps his matching his recruits to his strategy of play? Oh, no…we’re getting too “sartorial equivaltent” here….

    So, how would you rate his coaching?
    A = Better than tie selection
    B = Equal to tie selection
    C= Worse than tie selection
    D= Hang him with one of his tie selections
    F = uck you, Royl

    Please hold your response until Sunday.

    Hey, is today the lull day for basketball news? Hmm, we’ve talked about some guy’s wedding and now about Roy’s ties, lol. What about those dopey-looking eyeglasses he wears sometimes that look like something Ben Franklin wore?

    Calm before the storm.

    Great comments Chris, Russell, William.
