That Time Kentucky's Women's Soccer Coach Blasted UNC's Roy Williams On Twitter

Don't be dissin' soccer players.

Earlier this week, North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams dropped an interesting quote when speaking about this team's free throw shooting woes. Specifically, Williams implied that if his players weren't "tough enough" to step up and hit their shots, then they should be playing soccer instead. Wait, what?

As you can imagine, some folks weren't pleased with the comment. Kentucky's women's soccer coach, Jon Lipsitz, blasted Williams on Twitter after hearing the quote. Here's how he responded.

While we'll assume that Williams was not attempting to diss the entire population of people who play soccer, we'll also assume he could have chosen his words more carefully. Point Lipsitz.
