And I don't care that he left, because it allowed us to get Bill Self. Roy's leaving was "a blessing in disguise."

I am soo tired of people saying we are upset about Roy leaving...and you guys got it right. It was how he left... not that he left.

On your Larry Brown comments - 1) He left 1 WEEK after he said he was staying2) People WERE angry at Larry Brown for leaving - I would even say had some hate for him.

I second TxJyHwk above. People around in '88 will tell you that Larry Brown was a dirty word for quite a while. Romary's right though - people didn't care as much because they just didn't love him the way they loved Roy. I also wholeheartedly believe that had we won the title in 2003, people would have been angrier that Roy left - not faster to forgive.
