In person Boeheim may be a good guy. Have never met him. Have known quite a few people whose public persona was much different than their private one.
Having said that, as I have mentioned in this thread, sorta old guy here. Like traditions, no DH in baseball, call traveling and carrying in basketball, hitting of quarterbacks in football, well you get the picture.
The ACC originated in Raleigh, tourney was held in the state of NC from start in 1954 until 1976(still don't like Wally Walker but he could play).
Since then has been outside of NC 11 times in the last 40 years I believe.
Hate seeing all those empty seats in the Barclay Center in Brooklyn. Heck my HS drivers ed teacher went every year to Greensboro when team supporters would come out mad cause Clemson lost again. Seats looked always full in Greensboro back then. Toughest ticket in sports they used to say.
Now you get a "new" school come in from the what I always thought was the over rated Big East(see 1982) and their coach says tourney has no business in Greensboro and there are no "top" HS basketball players here anyway they all in NYC area?
Not a purebred redneck but got enough in my blood to be offended when a carpetbagger tries to sell me a hill of beans.
Wow stayed on that soapbox didn't I?
If anyone wants me to pass the plate after that sermon let me know.
