North Carolina coach Roy Williams met with media members on Tuesday to talk about his team's recent past and its future.
The recent past: The top-ranked Tar Heels began the season with a pair of double-digit victories - the first against Michigan State in San Diego on an aircraft carrier and the second at UNC-Asheville, which opened its new arena. And the future: UNC will play four games in six days, beginning on Sunday with the home-opener against Mississippi Valley State.
I asked Williams whether he'd learned anything about his team during that long road trip that he might not have known before the Tar Heels left Chapel Hill. His answer: Not really.
