Boeheim Says Coaches Better Watch Their Mouths


According to the NCAA, a new point of emphasis this year will be a crackdown on coaching/bench decorum on the court.
Cursing or venturing onto the court could draw college basketball coaches a quick technical foul this season.

The NCAA is making bench decorum a point of emphasis for 2007-08 and warns coaches to expect a whistle without warning for a variety of unsportsmanlike actions.
And while that's all fine and dandy, I find it a little funny that the coach quoted in the article about the rule emphasis is none other than Jim Boeheim (though given his role as president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches, he was probably forced to say something).

You see Boeheim is not exactly one who holds "coaching decorum" in high regard. If you watched the above video or have been anywhere near the 'Cuse bench for a Syracuse game you are aware that Jimmy curses like a sailor. Having Boeheim speak about enforcing the new anti-cursing rule is like picking Quin Snyder to talk about a "no cocaine before games" rule.

If you're going to anonymously attack Quin Snyder's reputation (and personally, I consider that the act of a coward) buy declaring him a felony drug abuser, at least be honest and accuracte with your comparisons. I've met Quin on a number of occasions - he was always very polite, respectful, and sober. The guy looks like he has not aged since college - doesn't seem accurate with your accusations. Given that the NBA gives drug tests to players and coaches and that he is still there - and one of the best coaches that has ever been in the d-league - also contradicts your defamations of his character. The honest fact in this story is that you are probably some disgruntled fan from some team that lost when Quin was on the other team. That upset you, but it was the fact that your girlfriend - or the girl you otherwise wanted to sleep with - thought he was better looking than you that really pissed you off. And you like to bash his reputation to this day because you know she was right and maybe because secretly - you like him more than she does. So, let's blog about that one shall we?
