But the passion of the Orange supporters sometimes boils over. The Orange is known for having the rudest fans in the Big East. Take a 2009 home game against rival Georgetown, for example, during which Syracuse fans rained plastic bottles down on a section of Hoyas supporters who eventually had to be evacuated by police for their own safety.

Q&A: Jim Boeheim Bio Author Talks About The Life, Legacy, Controversy Surrounding The Syracuse Coach | The Big Lead
Scott Pitoniak: I could be totally wrong about this, but from what I know I believe Boeheim was blind-sided on this and wasn’t aware of the serious issues regarding his long-time assistant and friend. I think his initial, over-the-top, insensitive defense of Fine was an indication that he didn’t know. Had he known, he clearly wouldn’t have stuck his neck out to the extent that he did.

King's five observations from the week - College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN
5. Syracuse is for real. Most folks probably realized that already. But any skeptics of the No. 1-ranked Orange probably don’t have many doubts about their potential after Saturday’s 88-72 spanking of North Carolina State. The victory came against a solid, well-coached Wolfpack squad that was back by 19,400 rowdy fans at the RBC Center.
