Jim Boeheim tells Michael Kay he’s excited about the Sweet 16 too, and he also weighs in on viewing college athletes as employees. (among a BUNCH of other stuff)
As Boeheim alludes to, Jay Bilas has some insights into college athletes unionizing as well.
And Jimmy B was feeling pretty chatty, also appearing on Mike and Mike to talk about tournament seeding and the high volume of quality coaches in college basketball.
Maybe Coach is trying to get a jumpstart on drumming up interest in his forthcoming biography. (The Troy Nunes link is worth your time for the back story)
Boeheim was already going to have a leadership void to fill with the departures of seniors C.J. Fair and Baye Keita, but it got even worse today with Tyler Ennis’s decision to turn pro. Even with a couple of stud recruits on the way, Cuse fans better hope Jerami Grant returns for his junior year or next season could be a rough one in Central New York.
At least Ennis gave us this before he left.
And we’ll apparently be able to enjoy him from afar in the Olympics for years to come.
But with only a one year career to evaluate, where does Tyler rank on the list of best Cuse point guards ever?
