Duke faces Syracuse in men’s basketball Saturday as part of the Mike Krzyzewski farewell tour during his final season on the Blue Devils’ sideline.

To have some fun, Coach K called into Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim’s radio show on WTKW 99.5 FM (and TuneIn Radio) Thursday night as “Mike from Durham,” a “long-time listener and occasional caller.”

“Yeah, I’ve been a fan of Coach Boeheim for almost five decades,” said “Mike from Durham,” whom Boeheim recognized right away and laughed.

“I’m gonna have a chance to watch the Syracuse-Duke game this weekend,” “Mike” continued. “I was wondering if there was an opportunity to meet him and maybe get an autograph and a picture.”

“I’m gonna meet you, but I’m not giving you an autograph or a picture,” said Boeheim. “I’d have to charge you my rate; I don’t know if you can afford that.”

“Well, your NIL is probably the highest of any college coach,” “Mike” said. To which Boeheim responded, “I’m hot on Cameo. I’m very hot.”

Host Matt Park then revealed that “Mike” was Mike Krzyzewski, in case anyone didn’t already figure that out from Coach K’s distinct voice and Boeheim’s amused demeanor.

Krzyzewski lamented the heavy snow forecast for the weekend, wondering how Boeheim somehow always manages for snow to come in when the Blue Devils visit Syracuse. Coach K mentioned that he was bringing his wife and grandchildren for the trip, since it’s his last visit to Syracuse.

The two legendary coaches first faced one another in 1989 as part of the ACC-Big East Challenge with the No. 1 Orange defeating Duke, 78-76. Boeheim and Krzyzewski opposed each other again during the 1998 NCAA Tournament, with the Blue Devils winning, 80-67.

Syracuse joined the ACC in 2013, meaning the two schools played twice a season. The Orange hasn’t had much success against Duke, compiling a 4-10 record. Syracuse has lost its past five games versus the Blue Devils. Will it be six after Saturday with Coach K winning the final match-up?

The on-air spat between SEC Network host Peter Burns and analyst Ben Watson continues to be bandied about in sports media circles, with 93.7 The Fan hosts Andrew Fillipponi and Chris Mueller discussing the topic Tuesday.

“I’m on Team Burns,” Fillipponi said.

“Forget who’s team you’re on,” Chris Mueller said. “I think you’ve do have to keep the wives and children out of this.”

“What are you talking about, keep the wives and out of it?!,” Fillipponi asked.

“Do we believe this is work or shoot here?,” Mueller wondered.

“Oh, I think this is real,” Fillpponi added, which Mueller agreed.

“Do you think a close fist from Ben Watson hit Peter Burns?,” Mueller asked.

“No, I think he picked him up by the lapels,” Fillipponi said.

When the subject of Watson’s religion was brought up, Fillipponi then pointed out the absurdity of the situation.

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

“I think he might have a shorter fuse and not taking in humor that Peter Burns was giving out,” Mueller said.

“It was an innocuous joke!,” Fillipponi stated. “It wasn’t a joke! Why is it in bad taste?”

Mueller then added the idea of Watson’s wife texting Burns insinuates there’s an inappropriate relationship.

Craig Carton: Booger McFarland’s Zach Wilson Analysis ‘An Embarrasment’

Craig Carton

ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland raised eyebrows on Monday Night Countdown this week by saying New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has never been held accountable for his actions because he was a “young man who grew up with a lot of money”. WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton called out McFarland’s comments Tuesday as outlandish.

“It was an embarrasment,” Carton said. “Someone should ask Booger McFarland if his kids — who grew up with amazing wealth — have accountability in their lives or if having a little bit of money in your pocket immediately discounts the possibility to have accountability. He’s an idiot and we learned that last night.”

“It’s funny that Steve Young was on the other side of it,” Evan Roberts noted. “Because a long time ago, Steve Young criticized Chris Simms because he’s the son of a famous quarterback.”

“You don’t have to invent reasons for why Zach Wilson isn’t playing well,” added Carton. “Just watch his tape. He’s not playing well. Maybe he’s just not good!”

Carton later said NFL reporters “will try to make a name for themselves by putting out a story” about quarterbacks who take responsibility for their teams failures, while Wilson wouldn’t accept the blame.

Peter Burns and Ben Watson shared an awkward exchange during the halftime show of an SEC Network football game over the weekend, and many are still debating whether Watson walking off the set was serious or not. Count part of the cast of The Greg Hill Show on WEEI as doubters.

“That was a a bit,” Courtney Cox said. “That was absolutely a bit.”

“Yeah, unlike the Chris Rock/Will Smith thing, I assume that was a bit,” Hill said. “I can’t believe that Ben Watson is really angry about that.”

“I dunno, man. There’s been a lot of speculation that it isn’t,” Jermaine Wiggins added. “There are people who are very sensitive about you clowning on them or joking with them. Especially with joking about their wife. Some people can’t handle jokes like that.”

After a back-and-forth with Cox about the legitimacy of the joke, Wiggins concluded by saying for some folks family is off limits.

“I’ve learned something in my 47 years on this Earth: be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”
