The show is at Carrabba's Italian Grill at 550 Towne Drive, Fayetteville, NY. The first hour, hosted by Matt Park, the Voice of the Orange, is on their general network. The second hour, which usually begins with the conference season, is hosted by Gomez, a local radio personality. Last year they did a third half hour segment on Twitch.

There’s now a third segment where Jim and Gomez can be seen on camera at:
The early shows tend to be in a one-hour format. I'll post a summary of them the same night. When they do two hour shows. I will do two posts: the Matt Park segment the night of the show and the Gomez segment the next day.




MY QUESTIONS/COMMENTS

“Coach, the last school year was the first in which our football team and the men’s basketball and lacrosse teams all had losing records, so the them this year is to get all three back on the winning track and back into the post season. Dino Babers needs just one more win and you’re up next!

It looks like this team will have the most depth we’ve had in a decade. I remember the 2012 team had Scoop Jardine, Brandon Triche, Deon Waiters and Michael Carter Williams in the backcourt. You started the two veterans but played them in rotation with Deon and Michael backed them up. Scoop played 25 minutes a game, Deon, 24, Brandon 22 ½ and Michael 10. I wonder if that kind of rotation could work with Joe Girard, Symir Torrence, Judah Mintz and Quadir Copeland?”

(If they do a third segment on Twitch I’ll improvise a question or two after listening to the rest of the show.)



COACH BOEHEIM
(I have, in some instances, put together statements from different parts of the broadcast on the same subject. The quotes may not be verbatim –they are from my scribbled notes. I have not knowingly changed the meaning.)

The did the whole nine yards from the beginning – an hour with Matt Park followed by a half hour on the radio with Gomez followed by (most of) a half hour with Gomez on Twitch. I asked my previously posted question and came on with another for the radio Gomez segment and was able to type in several questions for the Twitch segment. It was 90% basketball along with a few questions about golf and other sports. What I’m going to do tonight is record the responses to my questions. I’ll do the rest tomorrow.

To my main question (above):

“We’ll have to see how it works out. You have to remember, (about the 2012 team) is that two of those guys were drafted in the top 10 by the NBA, Brandon Triche was a four-year starter and Scoop was a tremendous player, too. That’s a different situation. We are dealing with one player who has started for three years, one who hasn’t started and two freshmen. Judah, Joe and Symir have separated themselves from the rest of the players. Quadir can play forward as well as the backcourt. What he can’t do is turn the ball over…Jesse and Mounir are good at center. It’s about getting the freshmen to be more consistent. There’s a lot of work to be done. Hopefully, we’ll get them playing well.”

My que for the second question was JB’s comment that “Benny couldn’t get any game going” against Lehigh and that “It was his worst game ever.” I asked him why Benny was taking so long to develop and commented that he often doesn’t seem to know what he’s doing out there, citing his travels and his 25 foot airball that JB clearly did not approve of, (he laughed thinking about it). “he’s trying hard to learn the game. When he was younger, he was 6-4 and played outside. Now he’s 6-9 and athletic around the basket. He’s not athletic outside. He could be a dominant rebounder – he had a dozen in one of the exhibition games. [IUP] His shot is getting better. It should be mid-range and around the basket. He needs to go strong to the basket. He’s a great kid and works hard. Oshae was ranked #150, [#128] and he was ready to play immediately and now he’s in the NBA. Rankings don’t mean anything.” I suggested that there are so many more good players these days that there’s not much difference between guys ranked 100 something and guys ranked #32, as Benny was. Jim completely agreed. “You might not get a good grade if somebody didn’t see you play or you had a bad game. Don’t look at the ratings. Benny just needs to use his ability to rebound and block shots.”

On Twitch, Jim was asked which teams he thought would be the strongest and he answered Gonzaga, Baylor because of their excellent backcourt and North Carolina because they’ve got all those players back from the team that played for the national championship. I asked Jim what the keys were to retaining players so a run could be made at a national championship. Jim made no bones about that: “They paid them. North Carolina put together big NIL deals. They had four guys who were going to be drafted, at least not in the first round. NIL will make college basketball stronger at the top.” I followed up, (which you can on Twitch), by asking how our NIL deals compared to the teams we want to compete against in the ACC. “Everybody has it. It’s not enough to get it naturally, (individual deals with local businesses like the one currently running with Garrett Shrader saying his new pick-up truck makes him happier than being 5-0). You have to collect it from alumni and collectives. There’s a big following on social media. They have to do some charity work. With the ‘natural’ deals, you’d only have a couple guys making money, which can create problems. Football has gone crazy. They are handing out millions. They’ll be doing that in basketball, too, eventually.” Which led me to ask what JB will be looking for with Adam Weitzman’s money. But, of course, he couldn’t answer that and let it pass.

More tomorrow.

A question for you SWC (maybe unfair): Is "They'll be doing that in basketball, too, eventually" an exact quote? I mean, as opposed to "We'll be doing that . . ." The implication being that he'll be retired before the big money arrives in basketball. Maybe he's thinking of following the Roy Williams exit strategy sooner rather than later.

I work from scribbled down notes - and I didn't write that down. I wrote "FB out of hand A million $) and remembered that he'd said basketball will be doing that eventually, too. So I don't recall if he said "We" or "They". I don't think he was referring to his own future plans at all.

The rest of the story:

Jim, (as happened a few times late last year), was late, (I assume working on that man for man defense), so Matt had to fill, playing radio highlights of the Lehigh game.

When Jim arrived, they talked about how some of the freshmen struggled in the exhibition games: “It’s part of being a freshman” but “they did well in the first ‘real’ game. We need Judah to be good and the others to find a role. Quadir has to avoid making turnovers. Benny had the worst game he’s going to have.”

JB talked about Jake Crouthamel: “Media people said that he was appreciated but there’s no statue of him and nothing named after him. He didn’t want anything for himself. He didn’t want to be recognized. He always took the worst spot in the parking lot.” [maybe they could name that after Jake.] He brought in Dick and Paul for football. He was a football guy but cared about every sport. He gave us what we needed in basketball and got us into the Big East. If you were in a fight, you wanted him standing next to you. He always said that the pain of losing was bigger than the joy of winning. He had his own copy of the football game film that he’d look at in his office. He wasn’t a basketball guy, but he got into the NCAA committee and helped organize that. And he was our financial guy.

They talked briefly, (but much more politely than in the press conference), about the fact that might get his 1,100th actual win vs. Colgate. “It means I’ve been around a long time.”

Colgate is “as good as last year” they lost a couple of guys but replaced them. They are a good passing and shooting team, a confident team that’s bene the NCAAs and beat us last year. They lost to Buffalo but scored 87 points. They have two big, physical guys inside, (6-11 270 Jeff Woodward and 6-10 Keegan Records), and their freshman guard, (Braeden Smith), is really good.” Lehigh is similar except, while “their guards are really good, Evan Taylor is the conference pre-season player of the year, their big men need some work.” Colgate has the big men they need already.

Jesse Edwards was good against a team “with no beef. Big guys bother him…he got two dunks on fast breaks. He’s much better around the basket…The whole team was not making defensive adjustments. The zone has been better. We went from up 6 to up 18 at halftime with the zone. We’re working on the man. These kids played mad in high school but most of it was fake. We spend most of our practice trying to get the defense right. It’s harder to play two defenses. There’s not enough time for each. People think the zone is complicated. It’s easier than learning a man-to-man. There are 100 different plays you can run against a man-for-man. Against zones there are a couple of things people can do. Practicing against man-to-man has made our man offense better.”

Gomez asked Jim about the practice schedule. They did an hour practice four days a week for 6 weeks. Now they’ve had 5 weeks of ‘regular’ practice. [11 weeks would take us back to August 24th] “Sy, Joe and Jesse have to be solid for us. Judah is playing a new position. Benny couldn’t play any worse. Mounir can block a shot. He didn’t play his last two years in high school because he was hurt and didn’t play much in his first year at Duquesne. Many guys are changing in the right direction. Jesse is making big strides. Joe is learning to get in the lane and make plays which you don’t do as a point guard.” [I thought that’s what point guards did. And Joe had problems when he got into the lane.] “If Benny can stay around the basket, rebound, and run the court he can be very effective. Sy is a good defender and leader. He got 6 rebounds for us and pushed the ball downcourt. He’s very consistent.”

“Last year we had a terrible start but were on the verge of becoming really good when Jesse went down. It’s hardest on the young players. They’ve never had any adversity.” [On the court.]

Syracuse can’t host the Final Four. “There’s not enough hotel rooms. They’d need 40-50,000. They never mention the weather, but it’s a factor. The Dome is actually smaller than the places they are using now. They’d have to put the court in the middle of the Dome and it would cost $2 million to do that because they’d have to change all the wiring and they’d lose all the good seats.” Matt pointed out that we’d played in the last Final Four held in a ‘real arena’ – in 1996 when we lost to Kentucky in the final at East Rutherford. JB: “It was better but that’s the way it is.”

Jim was asked what was the best team he’s had that didn’t make the Final Four. He picked the ‘1990’ team that “lost to Illinois. We were a little better, but we lost by a point.” [Which means it was actually the 1989 team that lost to Illinois by 3 points.] Matt noted that we play the Illini – probably grandsons of that 1989 team- the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.

A reunion is being planned for the 2003 championship team. They are still ironing out the details.

Someone asked about the aircraft carrier game. “It was a beautiful day. Plenty of sunshine and you could see for miles. The problem was you couldn’t shoot because of the wind. We got off to a good start and held on to the lead by going to the basket.” What if the weather wasn’t great. What was plan B? “I don’t think there was one.”

Donovan McNabb “was a ferocious rebounder. His guard skills had eroded.” The Twitch screen froze up for a time and I didn’t get the rest of this discussion.

What Big East team does he miss playing the most? “Villanova, St. John’s, Connecticut – of course we still play Georgetown. We had come great rivalries. But we have to be in the ACC for football. You have to be in one of the Big Five leagues.”

What does JB think of the plan for a 12-team college football playoff? “Football is becoming more balanced. They’re going to wish they already had a 12-team playoff this year. The contracts for the 4 team playoff run through 2025.”

In the NBA: Jerami Grant “played great. He’s signed a $50 million dollar contract. The next one might be for $100 million. He was a 2nd round draft pick. Utah traded their two best players and they are a better team. Cole Swider “is hurt pretty bad. It’s too bad. They needed a shooter.” Jimmy Boeheim “likes it in Greece, although it’s tough being away for 8 months. I stream the games from Greece. Buddy will play mostly in the G league this year but maybe he’ll get a shot towards the end of the year.” Carmelo “is in great shape and I’m shocked he hasn’t been picked up by anyone. The really good teams don’t want to change things.” [And they don’t seem to want Syracuse players.]

Who had the best basketball mind of all the players JB has coached? “Lebron James. He understands both ends of the court – offense and defense. He and Steph Curry. You don’t ever have to tell them anything. Just give them a position and let them play.”



Golf:

John in Liverpool asked if Jim has ever shot his age. JB: “I never have, although I’m getting close. I need to find an easy course. I’ve done 9 holes in 39 shots.” Matt Park said that Jimmy Satalin had done it a couple of times. [And he’s younger at age 75]

Gerry McNamara had “play Augusta” on his bucket list. What’s on Jim’s bucket list? JB: “I’m old enough that I’ve got my bucket list. I haven’t really missed anything.”

Tiger Woods will play with Rory McIlroy against Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas at Augusta in a December event. JB: “Tiger has to get stronger. Augusta is all hills. People who haven’t played there have no idea. It’s a tough walking course.”

“The PGA is still the best tour. LIV runs shotgun starts and plays 54 holes. The majors will pressure the PGA to allow LIV players into their tournaments.

Thank you very much for the detail feedback on the JB Show. I always look forward to your weekly report of comments by JB regarding Syracuse Basketball at that point in time. This year could turn out to be an entirely different team and type of play by JB from recent teams. I look forward to our season and your weekly reports regarding the JB Show.

Thanks. I think that golf outing with Woods, McIlroy, Spieth and Thomas takes places next month in Florida and it's a 12 hole match under the lights with no carts so I would not be concerned about Tiger walking.

Of course seeing Tiger is great unto itself, but The Match will be amazing regardless as long as Barkley is back commentating. Also thought JJ Watt was really good earlier this year during the last one.

Also, always great to read SWC's recaps!
