I've never been a big fan of Syracuse. I did root for the Carmelo team a few years ago but that was the first and last time I've pulled for the Orange. I can't really figure out exactly why I don't like them, but I'm pretty damn sure that it's because of Jim Boeheim. You see, Boeheim is kind of a massive bag of dicks. He's a carbon copy of Visanthe Shiancoe's dong.
I just can't respect him or his program. He plays a soft zone which is just plain cowardly defense. If you are going to play zone and not teach your kids any defensive principles at all, make it a trapping, aggressive one (see: Beilein, John). Don't just sit back in a 2-3 and clog the paint. It's pussy shit. I also think that Boeheim is a whiny, little bitch. Every single March he cries on ESPN about how his team should get a chance to play in the tournament eventhough they have 12 or 13 losses and played a schedule that ranked 250 or less in SOS. I just get the feeling that he thinks that since he finally won a title 5 years ago, that he should be given everything still today.
And his arrogance still shows through when it comes to disciplining his players. The 'Cuse's third leading scorer, Eric Devendorf, is on the verge of being kicked out of school for...(drum roll, please)...PUNCHING A WOMAN IN THE FACE!!! What a nice guy. And that's one hell of a Jim Brown impression he's got there. Oh, but don't worry, he'll still be playing:
"Any player can still play while the case is under appeal," Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim told ESPN.com on Wednesday, adding he will allow Devendorf to do just that (Syracuse's next game is Saturday against Long Beach State). "He's not going to be treated any differently" during that period, the coach said.
Well, at least the coach has his priorities in place. I wonder if Devendorf had punched Jim's wife would he still be lacing up for the Orange? I know one thing (and I'm not even a fan of his), if a player did this on Bobby Knight's team, he'd be already enrolled in Div-II school by now. This is just another example of how selfish coaches can be and why I hate egomaniacs.
And really what's the big deal about Devendorf? He's a white trash loser. You don't need this asshole. Look at him. Numerous tattoos, shaved head, thinks he's gangsta, punches women, chinstrap beard--those are like the 5 warning signs that you suck at life. Man, shit like this pisses me off. Before I go, here are two more rather large mutants in college basketball (Ohio State's white trash center, Blow Job Mullens, and Ohio University's own weirdo suckbag, Kenneth Van Kempen). Study their features because you will grow to loathe them as much as I do just for the way that they look. Ugly people...are they gross or what?
