I read that quote before, Roy Williams told Mark Few to call him before he ever thought of leaving Gonzaga. The context was Williams was out in Spokane (probably for the golf tourney) and Few was showing him around and telling him how much support he had at the school and in the city, and Roy said "Call me, if you are ever thinking of leaving) and of course he meant that as: You have a wonderful set-up, I have seen many friends burn bridges and leave too quickly for what looks like greener grass, so if you are contemplating leaving, call me and I am going to remind you of what you have.

The Heels are in conspiracy mode that Roy has him pegged as his successor or that Roy is leaving and has already chosen Few, whatever. Lets just beat them and be done with it.

The conspiracy thing seems to only be coming from a few posters. Most, like myself, interpret it as a kind offer of advice before making a tough decision to leave a place you love and enjoy (i.e. Roy coming back home from Kansas).

Or you can choose to look at it as Roy sees what a solid situation Gonzaga is and is telling Few, 'hey if you leave, call me I want the job!' ;)

Because Roy wants to smack Few along side the head and say, "Are you crazy?"

Then it's settled Few can only leave for UNC! At least it takes care of the whole UA and Oregon rumors.
