Jim Boeheim Speaks!...About The New Syracuse Football Coach

Jim Boeheim is just some normal person who isn't the head coach of the Syracuse Orange basketball team, but he has an opinion and he's allowed to share it.

Everyman Jim Boeheim is not allowed to have anything to do with the Syracuse Orange basketball team at the moment but he can talk about the Syracuse Orange football team and that team's new head coach.

Boeheim knows better than to be too exacting about the new coach, the seventh to roam the Orange sidelines since he took over his own program, but he feels "very optimistic" about the Dino Babers Era.

"I was very impressed with his press conference," Boeheim said.

"I believe he brings something different," Boeheim said. "I think a unique playing style. I think it can be something that can be very beneficial. We're not going to overpower people. I think a different style will be interesting to watch. His personality was great. I'm very, very optimistic and excited about what he is going to bring to the table."
