Anyone catch my alma mater gag away another Sweet 16 game Thursday night against Butler? People ask me all of the time why I am not a HUGE Syracuse hoops fan and now they know why. Jim Boeheim. He did an amazing job this season coaching SU to a Big East title, but, when push comes to shove.. he CANNOT coach in tight games and his team loses control. Thursday against Butler proved it. 2000 Sweet 16 at the Palace against MSU when the Spartans ended the game on a 17-0 run proved it. 1995 Second round vs Arkansas when the players were unaware that we had no timeouts left.. proved it. It is what it is. MSU fans.. be thankful for what you have.
