Pat Forde: Syracuse Basketball Coach “Just Doesn’t Get It” on the Severity of the Sex Scandal

November 30, 2011

The media contingent was far larger than normal Tuesday night for Jim Boeheim’s postgame remarks after the Syracuse Orange’s win over Eastern Michigan at the Carrier Dome. Not surprisingly, very few of the questions actually focused on basketball; instead, Boeheim talked mainly about the investigation into sexual abuse allegations against former SU assistant coach Bernie Fine.

Pat Forde, of Yahoo Sports, was critical of Boeheim’s remarks. Noting that Boeheim started the proceedings with a joke – “This is the first time I’ve been in the press room where there’s more people here than at the game. Is there something special going on tonight?" – Forde said "That was classic Boeheim – a wisenheimer of the highest order. Much of the time, that act is entertaining. This time, it was completely the wrong tone to take in the current context."
