If Syracuse were the setting for “The Departed,” Jim Boeheim would play Jack Nicholson’s Costello. He is, unquestionably, the law of upstate New York.
In the latest episode of the Chronicles of Eric Devendorf, university officials have suddenly reinstated Devo, as apparently the punk has done his time. Devendorf’s suspension for striking a woman in the face was reduced to “a verbal confrontation,” because the victim decided to recant on her initial statement. Funny how that works out.
ED has completed his 40 hours of testing out whether Spaulding fits through the Carrier Dome rims community service and has been reinstated, making him eligible for the Big East opener on Tuesday vs. Seton Hall. This all seems strange to us, as many facts now seem to have been misconstrued or not factual at all.
So with this seemingly swept under the rug, we’re going to make the assumption that Boehiem didn’t like his team sans Devendorf and feared the Orange could not win even ten effing games!!! without him. We don’t like how this played out, but will begrudgingly root for Devendorf the few times times he is needed during the sure-to-be treacherous Big East schedule.
