There have been some very strong feelings surrounding the Jim Boeheim debacle at Syracuse, with many blasting the longtime coach and his basketball program for repeated instances of horrendous judgment over the last decade. Included in that group is fiery ESPN personality Bill Simmons, who not only attacked Boeheim but also directed comments at college hoops analyst Dick Vitale.

Boeheim addressed the NCAA sanctions and his decision to retire in three seasons during a news conference on Thursday morning. Although he admitted fault for the situation, he also put the heavy majority of blame on others. His claims could very well be true and he actually did not know what his former director of basketball operations was doing, but some saw the remarks as arrogant and selfish, including Simmons.

It is highly likely that Vitale and others at ESPN will not appreciate the last tweet but is it enough to warrant another suspension? Probably not.
