“This league is so hard that it’s really hard to believe sometimes,’’ Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said after the Orange’s win at Georgetown on Saturday. “One game is going to be the difference between fourth-place and ninth-place.

An Ode to Jim Boeheim - Casual Hoya
Georgetown lost. I lost. And now we all lose. As a result of a bet I made with Hoya Suxa, I am contractually obligated to pen a poem extolling Jim Boeheim. I am never betting again, well at least not until the next time Georgetown plays Syracuse.
