Jim Boeheim Says Conferences Should Draft Teams


It seems like every day there’s a new report of a college making a conference switch, and Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim doesn’t seem too happy about it.

“I’m going to let those people play their games. I think they’ll be doing that for the next 20 years. If they could figure it out and get it done in the next year, we wouldn’t have to think about it. Maybe they should just have a draft, each conference should just draft teams … except then they’d have to make a decision and they wouldn’t be able to figure it out. Eventually, they’ll get this thing figured out. They’ll get all the teams moved and then in a year or two someone will say ‘We need to take somebody,’ … But I’ll be long gone by then.”
