Jim Boeheim's final visit to Hartford a few years ago
But it's still UConn-Syracuse, Monday night, Madison Square Garden. And that's still special.
Had a good (if brief) phone chat with Jim Boeheim today. He didn't want to get too much into UConn, since Syracuse plays North Florida (common opponent!) on Saturday. But here's what he did share:
Boeheim was asked about the end of the rivalry and gave some interesting insight. But not before calling ESPN reporter Andy Katz an "idiot" and a "disloyal person" for reasons, at the time, that were unknown.
The two have apparently cleared the air since then. Still, it was a classic case of Boeheim bullying a reporter.
