Meet Kentucky women's soccer coach Jon Lipsitz: Resident Twitter marksman who will find and humiliate you if you denigrate the game of soccer. Today, he engaged in a Twitter spree directed at UNC head coach Roy Williams that excoriated the Tar Heel boss for his comment about his team after losing to Texas on Wednesday night:

"I'm tired of talking about free throws ... You have to step up and make the doggone thing or go play soccer."

Lipsitz, a UNC alum, didn't take kindly to the statement:

Williams is somewhat established in the sports world, but Dorrance, North Carolina's women's soccer coach, has won 22 national titles. Roy's got a long way to go until then. When the trolls emerged to either defend Williams or further make fun of soccer, Lipsitz continued to spit fire:

This isn't the first showcase of Williams' arrogance and insensitivity. This is the man who compared losing to Virginia to the Haitian earthquake, had an opposing fan kicked out of a game for yelling during a free throw, and made five of his own players survive a court-storming while he and the rest of the team were safely in the locker room.

Lipsitz even put on a nice finishing touch:

Jon Lispitz, everybody: Delightfully reminding us that Roy Williams is still sullen.
