It was straight-up bribery. He sent me an awesome picture of Jim Boeheim standing awkwardly next to Wale and that was that.
I said at the time that I did not have an endorsement for Homecoming Queen but if one of the nominees wanted to send me a cool photo of Jim Boeheim, I will be happy to back their vision for our shared future.
Enter Lauren Meadors...
Thought I'd give this picture-for-endorsement idea a shot. In the picture attached, Jim is center right. The STUD center left with the stach is my dad, Mark Meadors. He played under Boeheim in the 70's and coached with him after graduation. Needless to say, Syracuse tradition is a family tradition and there's nothing I love more than swapping 'Cuse stories with my dad and getting the dirt on the coaches.
Remember, the TNIAAM-approved Homecoming ticket is #MeadorsBelbey2012.
