In case you’ve missed the last two weeks, Syracuse has risen from the ashes to win four straight games including two over top ten opponents. The Orange beat Wake, Florida State, NC State and Virginia in that order in the last 13 days. In doing so, Jim Boeheim earned what should be recognized as his 1,000th career victory of all-time.
If you don’t feel that, well, Jim might just say that you’re a hater and you’re gonna hate. But for most of us in the Syracuse community, we do feel that way. That includes some of Jim Boeheim’s former players. Following the big win on Saturday some erstwhile Syracuse ballers took to twitter to congratulate the ‘Heimer.
