From the article starting this thread: "Davis said Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim saw him in Fine's hotel room on several of those road trips, but Davis said he never told Boeheim about the alleged abuse," and, He said that Boeheim knew he was traveling on the road and sleeping in Fine's room.
"Boeheim saw me with Bernie all the time in the hotel rooms, on road trips," Davis said. "He'd come in, and see me laying in the bed, kind of glance at me like, 'What are you doing here?' But he wouldn't say that. He'd just scowl. And I would look at him like, I'd be nervous. I felt embarrassed 'cause I felt stupid that I'm there. I'm not supposed to be here. I know it, and Boeheim's not stupid."
Boeheim denied seeing Davis in Fine's room.
"He makes the point that he was around and traveling with the team," Boeheim said. "Not that I know of. I never saw him. He is quoted -- (that) I saw him in the room. I have never been in Bernie Fine's room in my life. That is an outright lie."
Reading that article and Boeheim's comments make his retraction later ring very, very hollow. What I am suspecting is that he took a "don't know, don't wanna know" position, meaning he really didn't see or come into any direct evidence, but surely had an uneasy feeling with a young man in his room. I think Boeheim will be very fortunate to keep his job, as well.
