I appreciate Alexander Wolff mentioning my upcoming book, but I don't appreciate him calling it an "embittered screed" (The Haves Still Have It, Nov. 19). It is a book dealing with the changes that integration, drugs, big money, the NCAA, etc., brought to college basketball during my career [as coach at North Carolina State and Florida]. By the way, I am not "holed up...in the hills of North Carolina [as rumored]." I have been in Greece coaching since August.
