After reading Elliott Teaford's article on Jim Boeheim ["Boeheim Is Even, Not Equal," Jan. 11], I recoiled in disgust about the venom with which the reporter attacked the Syracuse basketball coach. Why? Because Boeheim had the audacity to pass beloved coach John Wooden on the all-time NCAA wins list. Coach Wooden, I'm sure, would be first in line to congratulate Coach Boeheim.
Though a certain Hall of Famer, Boeheim may be the most underrated coach in history. He may look frumpy, but he wins 75% of his games. He may not be Coach Wooden, but who is? And unfortunately for Teaford, it looks as if he may be around for a long time.
