Syracuse U. Basketball Coach Jim Boeheim now whistles a different tune

Unfortunately, it is a tune we are all too familiar with ...

On Nov.17, 2011 when the accusation of child molestation became public against Bernie Fine (Assistant basketball coach), coach Jim Boeheim defended his longtime friend by attacking Bobby Davis' reasons for going public with his accusations against Bernie Fine.

"The Penn State thing came out, and the kid behind this is trying to get money," Boeheim said. "He's tried before. And now he's trying again. If he gets this, he's going to sue the university and Bernie. What do you think is going to happen at Penn State? You know how much money is going to be involved in civil suits? I'd say about $50 million. That's what this is about. Money."

Tonight it appears Jim Boeheim changed his tune; Syracuse U. most likely demanded and supplied the new lyrics. After all, it is personally and fiscally the responsible choice. Audio. Containment is passe'. He now supports the university's decision to fire his longtime assistant and expressed regret for his initial statements that were "insensitive."

"The allegations that have come forth today are disturbing and deeply troubling," Boeheim said in a statement released by the school. "I am personally very shocked because I have never witnessed any of the activities that have been alleged. I believe the university took the appropriate step tonight. What is most important is that this matter be fully investigated and that anyone with information be supported to come forward so that the truth can be found. I deeply regret any statements I made that might have inhibited that from occurring or been insensitive to victims of abuse."
