Jim Boeheim has started his last slate of road games in the Big East.
And it seems to be sending him down memory lane.
After No. 7 Syracuse beat South Florida 55-44 in Tampa, Fla., on Sunday, the first conference road game this season for Boeheim's team, he spoke at length about his past, his half-century at the school as a player, student and coach - and how he would have stopped coaching if the Orange were leaving in a heyday for the rapidly changing Big East.
Boeheim has long spoken of his affinity for the Big East, the league that was founded in 1979 as a basketball conference and counted Syracuse as a charter member. These days, even someone like Boeheim has trouble figuring out who's coming and going through the Big East in this realignment trend for major conferences.
