Some brief overview of this book

Jim Boeheim walked onto the Syracuse campus as just another non-scholarship guard on the freshman basketball team in 1962 . . . and he still hasnt walked off.

In six decades as a player, assistant coach and the head man on the bench for Syracuse Universitys basketball program, Boeheim is synonymous with the blood and thunder of East Coast hoops. In Bleeding Orange, Boeheim recounts for the first time all of the pleasures and perils of a career spent battling "The Beasts of the Big East," the NCAA and his own fear of failure. The son of a funeral director, Coach Boeheim has always been full of life, and his combative nature helped ignite what was arguably the most fascinating and competitive college basketball conference everthe Big East of the 1980s.

Boeheims battles with fellow coaches Big John Thompson of Georgetown, roly-poly Rollie Massimino of Villanova, feisty Jim Calhoun of Connecticut and beloved Louie Carnesecca of St. Johns turned the Big East into the best show in college basketball. Combining a real time, inside-the-program account of the 201314 seasonSyracuses first in the ACCwith a narrative of his most cherished memories of coming-of-age on the Syracuse campus and of coaching two Olympic gold medalwinning teams, Bleeding Orange is a must-read both for Syracuse fans and anyone who calls himself or herself an aficionado of college basketball history.
