Jim Boeheim Was Ornery Again, Told Reporters to "Get Their Pulitzer Somewhere Else"

Jim Boeheim is not happy as the Syracuse Orangemen have now dropped 3 of their last 5, and he’s not going to take it anymore from reporters. He got testy in regard to a question about guarding Davante Gardner, and then did not appreciate a question about leadership from Jeff Goodman of CBS.

Not included in the above video are the following quotes:

When there was a break in questions, Boeheim asked if there “any more coaches here? Want to ask another coaching question? I’d be happy to take it. I’ve only been doing this 37 years, I’m sure you’ve got more ideas of who we should play or we shouldn’t play or who should lead? What do I know?”

He finished the presser by telling reporters to “go get your Pulitzer someplace else.”

I didn’t think the questions were bad. Often, the problem I have is non-specific questions at press conference, and I think direct and specific questions about a particular choice of strategy or player decisions are what fans want to know about. Boeheim, though, has been doing this for a long time, and he can’t be troubled with them.
