Andy Katz writes (Insider subscription required) that Jim Boeheim hasn’t really gotten a handle on how good the Cuse can be this year. Welcome to the club, Coach. In JB’s own words, via AK: “I don’t know if we’re top-20 or 60 to 70,” Boeheim said. “We could be in the top 20 but I don’t know.”
When I hear “Top 70,” I think of the 2002 NIT team “led” by DeShaun Williams and Preston Shumpert. The 2006 incarnation of the Orange is surely better than that…right?
