A lesser coach would have shut up by now. A lesser coach would have stopped commenting publicly about his critics. A lesser coach would have hidden behind his team and put his head down, hoping the negativity would just go away.
Jim Boeheim is no lesser coach. Jim Boeheim continues not to give a flying f*** about you and your opinion.*
*Actually, Jim cares a lot about your opinion if you make it known in the public sector. Clearly.
In the same season in which he is being sued by two individuals for millions in a defamation suit over his comments, was the focus of an investigating report by college sports pitbull Charles Robinson and creepy uncle Pat Forde, has been lambasted by every hack columnist with a 500 word column to fill and has even felt the wrath of the United State Secretary of Education, a member of President Obama's Cabinet...Jim Boeheim isn't f***ing done yet.
The latest focus of his ire? Basketball "analyst" Reggie Miller. Miller, like many folks last night, had a hard-on for Syracuse to play man-to-man defense against the UNC-Asheville Bulldogs and didn't understand why.
My favorite part is that Boeheim almost stopped himself. He had a brief moment of clarity where the right side of his brain said, "You know what, sit this out, slugger." And then the left side of his brain said, "F*** that noise, son!"
Reggie Miller, you've been 'Heimed.
