State of the Orange posted yesterday about a conversation he had with a college basketball ref who has done SU hoops games this year. SotO reports:
He [the ref] has personally witnessed Johnny Flynn and Paul Harris tell Boeheim to shut the F#$% up and Leave me the F#$% alone.
along with a couple other incidents which, if true and legit (as opposed to being taken out of context) would be, at the very least, disturbing. Consider that some of the remaining optimism for this season is founded on the mantra of “In Boeheim We Trust” (from a recent Orange:44/Nunes blogversation); if key players are not respecting his authoritahy, that trust won’t count for much. Hopefully the things this ref is talking about are isolated incidents of players getting frustrated and losing their tempers, not elements of a pattern of behavior.
