Syracuse is set to join the ACC after this school year is over."Well, you know, I'm pretty much ready to go play golf somewhere," Boeheim said. "If was 40 years old, I'd be real upset. I'm not 40 years old. That should be obvious, though."Boeheim then continued to discuss some of the other things about the job he would miss if he left the profession. Specifically, his dealings with the media."I'll miss some of these press conferences with some of you people, having a chance to get mad," he said. "Then everyone's mad at me for a couple of weeks. How can he say those things? It's easy. It's real easy. I don't care."Via USA TODAY
