Jim Boeheim Calls APR Guidelines 'Ridiculous'
This time, Boeheim more or less blasts the APR guidelines that are keeping UConn out of the postseason, calling them "ridiculous."
While I don't agree with everything Boeheim says here -- UConn did have blame in not making sure players were in good academic standing before leaving -- I agree with his general premise, that the rules are a bit silly and that UConn should be allowed to play in the Big East tournament.
Here's what Boeheim had to say after I asked him if there was something missing with UConn not being at the Garden this week:
“It’s unfortunate, because I think the whole (APR) thing is ridiculous,” he said. “The whole thing — guys leaving, they just leave, the coach can’t control it, all of a sudden the school gets punished. That wasn’t the purpose of that legislation when it went in. It’s been adapted to that, and I just don’t think it’s the right thing.”
