Boeheim came in at 17th overall while pulling in $1.9 M per year from Syracuse. No one is shaking a can in front of the Salvation Army for JB, but to see some of his inferiors rank ahead of him is a joke.
Understandably, Coach K is the top dawg earning over $7 M a year. But let’s go down the rest of the coaches in front of Jim:
Coach K. No one can argue he’s the class of coaches with those titles and Final Fours (even if he has some head scratching early exits).
Pitino. Fine. He’s always got a contender, never loses in the Sweet 16. Could be looking at another title this year.
Self. Again, can’t argue. Has m...

ATLANTA Here are three observations from Michigan's 61-56 win over Syracuse in Saturday's second semifinal in Atlanta, a victory that will match the Wolverines up with the Louisville Cardinals in the national championship game:

Some get paid millions to try and solve the riddle facing the Michigan coaching staff at the Final Four this weekend.
How do you score against the Syracuse 2-3 zone defense? Lately, there seems to be no answer.
More than any single player, it's the amoeba-like creation crafted by Jim Boeheim over the past 37 seasons and honed to near perfection over the last month that'...
Jim Boeheim’s 2-3 zone has prevented great guards from scoring in this tournament. Orange Nation worried Cal’s Allen Crabbe, Indiana’s Victor Oladipo, and Marquette’s Vander Blue would be able to bust the zone and find ways to score. Instead, SU’s defense has been historically good and shut down all of the elite scorers its faced en route to Atlanta.
Despite youth, a late-season lull and tempered expectations, Syracuse hoops reached the Final Four in Atlanta for the first time since Carmelo Anthony led the Orange to Jim Boeheim's only national title. CuseNation.com breaks down SU's road to Saturday's clash with Michigan inside.
