Orange Squeezed

The NCAA has punished Syracuse basketball and football with 5 years probation, vacated 108 wins from the past several years, reducing of 3 scholarships for the next 4 years, and Basketball Head Coach Jim Boeheim suspended for the 9 ACC games.      The reasons were extra benefits from boosters up to $8,000 for 3 football players and 2 basketball players to volunteer at the YMCA, failure to follow proper drug testing procedures, academic misconduct, and illegal booster activity. The only surprise is that the NCAA didn’t hit them with a post season ban.   Boeheim should be held accountable for the program mistakes and he should be fired for these actions.  It will be tough for them to be in the post season with the reduction of scholarships.
