I understand the comments about Boeheim and I agree with some of the points. I am not a huge Boeheim fan. He seems like a bit of a curmudgeon to me.
True, there have been some mixed bag results in the NCAA tournaments over the years. Syracuse has had its moments of underachievement in the Big Dance.
But at the same time this is a guy who was a National runner up 2x and took his team to a Final 4 in four different decades. That is quite an accomplishment. Maybe you are too young to remember but the Orange lost a heartbreaker to IU in the 87 title game on a last second falling away jumper by Keith Smart. Would 2 national titles changed opinions about Boeheim? Probably.
I only hope that Matta brings us a National Title which we haven't had in 55 years and two more Final 4's before he goes.
