Jim Boeheim is one of the winningest coaches in college basketball history. But he is set to start something brand new in the 2013-14 season, compete in the ACC. He addressed that, previews the upcoming season and more at Syracuse media day.

Syracuse may be about four hours northwest of New York City, but the Orange still appear to be committed to calling themselves “New York’s College Team”. Last night, SU coach Jim Boeheim arrived to “Orange Madness” in a NYC-style yellow taxi, got out and addressed the crowd with a rousing “Are you ready for the ACC?” I’m not sure who convinced him to do it, but it...
Syracuse may have moved from the Big East to the ACC, but one thing hasn't changed: The sound of getting chewed out by Orange coach Jim Boeheim.
For those of us who don't know what that's like, Syracuse senior center Baye Moussa Keita gave us a taste with his best Boeheim impression on Wednesday at ACC Media Day.
OK, so the West African accent may throw you off, but...
When asked about heading to Charlotte for ACC Media Days instead of New York for the Big East, Jim Boeheim dropped a classic quote.
Check out video from Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim at ACC Basketball media day in Charlotte.
After seeing this drawing of Otto, the mascot for the Syracuse Orange, I believe this much is true, C.J. Fair is much better at basketball than drawing.
This whole thing came about when ESPN asked a bunch of ACC basketball players and coaches to draw a rendering of their school's mascot.
The results were very entertaining to say the least.
The best team coming in to the ACC from the Big East is Syracuse; they have been good under Jim Boeheim with 34 twenty-win seasons in his 36 years as coach. They have won one national championship under Boeheim, and last season made another trip to the Final Four. They will be just as good in the ACC as they were in the Big East.

Carmelo Anthony has made it clear that he will test free agency next offseason, and his former college coach at Syracuse, Jim Boeheim, believes Anthony is right to consider all options.
Ultimately, Boehiem believes, the bottom line to Anthony's free agency will come down to his best chance to win an NBA championship.
"The problem for Carmelo right now, and Kevin Durant,...
Syracuse Orange linebacker Dyshawn Davis' injured ankle is still getting evaluated and a status on the junior's player status is still unknown, head coach Scott Shafer told the local media Thursday morning.
Earlier in the week, Shafer said Davis' injury wasn't serious and he should not miss this Saturday's game versus Georgia Tech. Though, as the week has progressed...
ATLANTA, Ga. – The Syracuse Orange’s first trip to Georgia Tech as a fellow member of the ACC was one the program would soon like to forget, as the Yellow Jackets ran for nearly 400 yards in a dominant 56-0 win.
With the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (3-3, 2-2 ACC) struggling to defend the pass, they should be glad to see the Syracuse Orange
(3-3, 1-1 ACC) running into Bobby Dodd Stadium. The Jackets looks to
halt a three-game skid, while the Orange are trying to keep momentum
going after a 24-10 win at N.C. State.
The Jackets and Orange have only ever met twice in the past and...
Pitt was picked to finish sixth in the ACC this year. Seems about the right range. Upper-half, NCAA bid. Safely within two spots of where they might finish come the end of the season.

3. North Carolina (1) 668
4. Virginia 612
