07:14 AM ET 07.10 | For now, North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams isn't talking -- not much, anyway. "Our procedure, our stance has been we're not making any statement until the facts are in and until everything is done," Williams told [a WTVD-TV] reporter. Hairston, 20, was cited for speeding while driving a rented 2012 Chevrolet Camaro on May 13, and he was arrested during a traffic stop in Durham on June 5, when he and two passengers in a rented 2013 GMC Yukon were charged with marijuana possession. Hairston was also charged with driving without a license. According to USA Today and the News & Observer of Raleigh, 39-year-old convicted felon Haydn "Fats" Thomas rented the Yukon from a local Hertz location and Catinia Farrington, who shares the same Durham address as Thomas, was renting the Camaro from Hertz.

"We're still evaluating how much this will cost to push under the rug. Once we get a handle on the total cost, we can then start sending out bag men."

There's alot of smoke here (pun intended), so betcha there's a fire too. Like he's gonna get fired from the team. In a vehicle rented by a convicted felon, with weed, and driving without a license -- guessing the good news is he didn't shoot anybody and leave them in an industrial park...

Rentals? What kind of two-bit CBB program makes their players drive around in rentals?

Everybody's talking about the NCAA and Miami. The hammer may fall hardest on UNC.

That's the way Kentucky conducts business, not the Carolina way.

Roy Williams is a weak sap wimpy girly man who is so feminine he has lost the respect of all around him.

Coach Williams is following rules set about by his AD.
