He did a lot.“One of the trophies (Europa League) was one we hadn’t won before. He took us to three trophies in sort of one season.”So people need to respect him and remember what he did, not only for us as a team to win those trophies but for the fans as well.” last_img read more

For a midfielder this is perfect because he offers so many solutions.” last_img read more

Jim Boeheim On Post-Season Ban: “I’d Rather Take The Punishment And Let The Players Go To The Tournament”

first_imgJim Boeheim not happy with a call.DETROIT, MI – MARCH 18: Head coach Jim Boeheim of the Syracuse Orange reacts during the first half against the Michigan State Spartans in the second round of the 2018 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament at Little Caesars Arena on March 18, 2018 in Detroit, Michigan. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)Syracuse’s self-imposed NCAA Tournament ban has helped spark a lot of debate about the efficacy of NCAA post-season bans, which almost always wind up punishing players who are not involved in the violations at hand. Many believe the punishment should be levied against coaches and administrators, including ESPN’s Dan Dakich, who believes that Jim Boeheim, and not Rakeem Christmas, Mike Gbinije, and company, should be the one banned from the tournament. Dakich had Boeheim on his radio show, and the legendary Syracuse coach agrees with his idea.Jimmy B on @dandakich “I’d rather take the punishment and let the players go to the tournament, I’ve been to the tournament” @BrentAxeMedia— Justin Hardie (@jhardie13) February 25, 2015While it is too late for this Syracuse team, last night’s win at Notre Dame gives the program two wins over Top 12 teams in the last week, and the Orange would probably be right on the bubble if they were eligible. Punishing a coach who was present, even if he may or may not have been aware of alleged violations, makes far more sense than taking this opportunity away from the innocent players.last_img read more

Ohio State defeated Wisconsin 38-17. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)Ohio State basketball was struck with disappointing news today, as Micah Potter announced he’ll transfer. It’s important to keep in mind that his brother, Noah Potter, is currently on track to play football for the Buckeyes.Potter is a defensive end from the class of 2019, and he’s an Ohio native. Although his brother will leave the Buckeyes after two seasons, the high school recruit is staying with his original choice.Just in case fans were worrying about his future intentions, Potter set the record straight on social media.He left this message on Twitter:For anyone wondering I am still 1000% committed to Ohio State.— Noah Potter (@noah_potter10) November 5, 2018Credit to Potter for sticking with his commitment to the Buckeyes. As for the tweet itself, it’s great to see him already engaging with his future supporters.The four-star recruit has several reasons to remain in Columbus, which should validate his decision.Moving over to Ohio State’s basketball team, losing the junior forward before the start of the season could hurt its overall depth. However, it’s hard to blame him for wanting more opportunity on the hardwood.last_img read more
