NCAA Suspends Jim Boeheim Nine Games, Revokes Scholarships

The NCAA has handed down its punishment against Syracuse University for a series of self-reported violations that took place over the last decade. In the NCAA's terms, the school is being punished for failing to "control and monitor" its athletics programs, and men's head basketball coach Jim Boeheim specifically is… » 3/06/15 12:49pm 3/06/15 12:49pm

Syracuse Conveniently Punishes Itself During Down Season

The Syracuse men's basketball team has self-imposed a postseason ban in an attempt to punish itself for athletic department violations that the NCAA has been investigating since 2007. The ban will prevent Syracuse from playing in the ACC tournament, NCAA tournament, or NIT tournament this year, but there's no reason… » 2/05/15 10:46am 2/05/15 10:46am

Jim Boeheim Is Getting Pretty Sick Of This Shit

Michigan rode Mitch… » 4/06/13 11:55pm 4/06/13 11:55pm

Jim Boeheim Closed His Press Conference Last Night With A Call For More…

Last night, Syracuse men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim earned his 900th career victory when his team defeated the University of Detroit Mercy 72-68. After the game, though, Boeheim seemed to have the tragedy in Newtown on his mind, as he ended with some spirited words about gun control. Boeheim asks why anybody… » 12/18/12 11:35am 12/18/12 11:35am

Black Lacrosse Player Boycotts Equipment Company Over "Ninja, Please"…

Every joke ever made about lacrosse is based on the premise that the players are obnoxious, privileged white kids from elite Northeastern prep schools. Stereotypes exist for a reason, though. So it shouldn't be a surprise that Warrior Lacrosse's "Ninja" line of products (such as training shoes called the "Dojo") is… » 11/08/12 3:10pm 11/08/12 3:10pm

Several Fights Broke Out And A Man Was Stabbed During The First…

Orange Madness, the Syracuse version of the Midnight Madness events that take place all over the country on the first day of basketball practices, devolved into chaos around the periphery of the Carrier Dome last night. Syracuse security told reporters that multiple scuffles broke out around concession stands while… » 10/13/12 9:15am 10/13/12 9:15am
