Jim Boeheim calls ESPN's Andy Katz an idiot on Live TV


LINK

quote:

Syracuse just lost to UConn in Hartford, 66-58, and Jim Boeheim is understandably not in a good mood. But during his press conference, things boiled over a little bit, seemingly out of nowhere. It’s been reported by numerous outlets that Boeheim called ESPN senior writer Andy Katz an “idiot” and told him he was a “disloyal person”. It seems like there’s something we’re missing here – maybe there is some history between the two that we’re unaware of.

I have always thought Boeheim was a smug a-hole...this further confirms that. No need to air your dirty laundry in public...especially after you just loss. No class.

If it's over the Bernie Fine stuff then I can't blame Boeheim for being upset with ESPN.

Me either...but you don't call Katz out in a post-game press conference when you just lost. It is all about time and place.

Apparently its over the James Southerland suspension. James and Katz were speaking off the record and Katz reported what James told him about the situation later that night on air at the Syracuse Villanova game. If you are a reporter and given access to a kid in that situation and you report something that was told in confidence well yeah you are an idiot. At least that's the story around the Syracuse media people right now.

I like Boeheim because he's a dick and not phony for the media. Sadly old curmudgeons like he, Jim Calhoun, and John Chaney are disappearing.

If that's the reason, frick Katz. But still there is a time and place for it. Still love Boeheim.

If this is true in a way it says oddly nice things about Boeheim being trusting of people.

Katz is a pussy

He broke Boeheim's trust

And if he has the nuts to ask Jim a question after that and gets pnwed by Jim, at least ask a follow up question

Boeheim 1, Sackless Katz 0

re: Jim Boeheim calls ESPN's Andy Katz an idiot on Live TV


This is surprising considering that Katz is a pretty well respected journalist. Boeheim should have kept his mouth shut even if his comments were off the record. Nothing is "off the record" these days with Deadspin and Twitter sources breaking rumors without editorial oversight.

Regardless Boeheim needs to keep his kids in line, so that these stories don't even occur.

I'm sure Katz will get over it. The media puts the coaches on the coals more often than coaches do to the media.

I like him because anyone who outkicks his coverage this much can't be all bad.
