Monday Fodder: Boeheim goes Ballistic, Wake gets Biscuit’d, Jr. Wins Daytona, RIP Harold Ramis

In the new greatest rivalry in college basketball (according to ESPN), Duke and Syracuse came down to the wire again when Jim Boeheim strongly disagreed with the charge call against T.J. Fair.

Yes Dick Vitale, coaches can scream, but running onto the court to get in the refs face will get you thrown out.

North Carolina won their ninth game in a row easily over Wake Forest 105-72 (nice knowing you Jeff Bzdelik) and travel to Raleigh this week to face NC State. This is really a must win for the Wolfpack, who do not have a signature win this year and are hovering on the NCAA bubble. Three of their last four games at home.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. won his second Daytona 500. Ten years after his first, and the same year the #3 returns to NASCAR.

The man who wrote classics such as Caddyshack, Stripes, and Ghostbusters, Harold Ramis, died on Monday, he was 69.

Jim Boeheim Wins #800

Last night Syracuse opened up their 2009/2010 campaign by laying a beatdown on Albany, 75 – 43.  The win was the 800th for Orange head coach Jim Boeheim, who has been the haed coach at Syracuse since 1976.  While Boeheim may be one of the biggest whiners in college sports, even I can not take anything away from him amassing 800 Ws.  So while congrats go out to Boeheim on his accomplishment, we can not go back to hoping he loses the rest of his games from here on out.  Why the disdain, you ask?  Simple.  I have yet to get over him acting like a 4 year old girl when his establishment was left out of ACC expansion.
