Leave it to Syracuse head coach, Jim Boeheim, to turn a team loss into his personal feelings. Maybe it’s the media’s fault for answering triggering questions knowing how he will respond, but there has to be a point that Boeheim realizes this is the reaction the media feeds off of and unfortunately, takes away the spotlight on his players.
Boeheim’s actions today aren’t highlighted by the coaching he did or his anticipation for selection Sunday, but he’s comments on the ACC tournament and where they host the games. It’s safe to say, Boeheim won’t have a welcome wagon on his return to NC.
I think New York’s a great place. Obviously, we get some fans here. It doesn’t matter in terms of who wins. I just think New York City is a great venue for our tournament. I think the big city is where it should be played. I think it should be played here, Washington, Atlanta. That’s where the tournament should be played. I’m not going to be around much longer to care about it, but I think that’s where the value is. I think there’s a huge value in playing the tournament in those places. There’s no value in playing Greensboro, none. It’s there because the league’s been there and the office is there, and they have 150 people that the ACC needs. That’s why it’s there. It should not be there. You get in the media centers and the recruiting centers, how many players do they have in Greensboro? I mean, New York, Washington, Atlanta, that’s where the media centers are. Madison Square Garden made the Big East conference. There’s a couple other factors, but made the Big East conference. And I’m saying all that because I don’t give a shit. I’m just saying what’s right. That’s what’s right. Why do you think the Big Ten is coming into New York? It’s business, good business sense. They all say it’s a business. Well, then, let’s start acting like it’s a business.
But Boeheim isn’t the only one with a strong comment, the City of Greensboro had a few words… or tweet?
How’s that for a response?
