Jim Boeheim didn’t get to be one of the winningest coaches in NCAA men’s basketball history by doing things halfway.
Syracuse’s head coach goes all out, and he doesn’t care what Andy Katz or anyone else thinks.
It was in that spirit (or so I like to think) that Boeheim went spelunking for nose nuggets on the sidelines during Wednesday’s Big East tournament matchup between Syracuse and Seton Hall.
At the 16-minute mark the camera focused in on Boeheim—a tight head shot typically meant to capture emotion—at which point Syracuse’s head coach went deep-earth drilling.
Seriously, this type of expedition usually requires belaying rope and food rations.
But hey, we’ve all been there, and certainly Boeheim couldn’t have had any idea the camera was zoomed in on him when he decided to endeavor in some amateur excavation.
Unless, of course, it was some sort of subliminal message meant for Katz, telling him where to stick it and/or what he thinks about his employer.
The likeliest scenario is the most obvious, however—someone got caught on television mining nose minerals.
