Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim On ACC Media Day: “Same ****, Further South”
It took Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim a few months to come around on the idea of his school leaving the Big East for the ACC. Now that SU has officially joined its new league, he apparently doesn’t even notice a difference – at least not at the conference’s media day. Boeheim dropped a hilarious quote on Syracuse.com’s Mike Waters:
Jim Boeheim on the ACC media day vs. the Big East media day. “Same shit. Further South.” (He was joking) #ACCmediaday

I’m not sure if he is just trying to downplay the whole “new guy” storyline or whether he genuinely doesn’t notice a difference, but either way, it’s another fun example of Boeheim being crotchety.
