PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – After Pitt’s 83-77 victory over Syracuse on Saturday, Jim Boeheim was asked by Joe Starkey about his program’s recently self-imposed sanctions stemming from potential academic violations in 2007 and things got a little heated.
Following that exchange, Joe wrote in the Trib about how classless Boeheim was. Boeheim apparently read that story and had a change of heart as he called Joe’s cell phone during Monday’s edition of Starkey and Mueller.
“My, my, my how things change,” Starkey said. “You won’t believe the phone call I just got. You will not believe the phone call I just got and almost didn’t make it back on air. It was Jim Boeheim, I kid you not. Jim Boeheim just called me and apologized for saying what he said the other day.
To add even more to the situation, Boeheim then called a second time to further clarify what they had talked about earlier!
In the end, Starkey admitted what a strange day it had all become and admitted he was glad he had gotten a chance to talk with Boeheim and straighten everything out.
