Still smiling

It’s 4:45, and Georgetown still sucks.
By the way, that was the game I was hoping for when I got tickets to the season finale at the Verizon Center. I think that was the game everyone was hoping for that day, except maybe the obnoxious parts of the Hoya fanbase. Anyone with historical perspective wanted [...]

…and Georgetown still sucks!

I don’t, in this post’s title, refer to their basketball team, which is quite talented and clearly has SU dominated this year. I give the team all the credit in the world for the whooping they laid down on the Orange. It was painful to watch, especially in person, helpless in the upper deck. I [...]

Once more, with feeling

As time ticks down to the final “real” game against Georgetown, I quickly want to share a few bits of Hoya hate that have recently come to my attention.
1. Georgetown wants to crush the world
I happened to see the Georgetown campus shuttle on a DC street the other day. I was immediately struck by the [...]

Georgetown’s ticket problem

Syracuse has a game against #6 Louisville on Saturday, March 3 at noon. As of this moment, the ticket availability looks like this:

The light blue sections, 314 for instance, have only single seats available, according to Ticketmaster. If you want to go with a friend, you’re sitting behind the curtain. (And yes, I know there [...]

Getting into the Verizon Center (a public service announcement to the Otto-man Empire)

It has been a Cuse Country tradition to attend Syracuse games against Georgetown at Verizon Center. When we started this site, many of us lived in and around DC, and those who didn’t would come visit for the appropriate weekend. In fact, the name of this blog is derived from the following sign that we [...]

an exhilarating win, and some clarity about where we stand

Any win against Georgetown is a great win; let’s get that straight right off the bat. Especially when it’s in overtime, on national television, and Georgetown is ranked near the top ten. I’ll take a victory against the Hoyas — no matter how pretty or ugly — any chance I can get, and I will [...]

The ten best lines from Ben Detrick’s article on SU’s future national championship

While most of Syracuse nation remains abuzz over the football team’s unexpected demolishing of West Virginia — and I remain in that state as well — I’m also still reveling in the afterglow of the most entertaining piece of Syracuse basketball writing I’ve come across in years. I’m referring to Ben Detrick’s hilarious, erudite, and [...]

Another one

Another excellent defensive performance.
Another Senior Night (or Day in this case) ruined.
Another one of these:

If you’ve read my previous post, you should know why I was unable to get a proper review of the Georgetown game up in a timely manner. Though I did toss off a few mid-game tweets from my perch in the [...]

Welcome, Orange travelers, to Washington, DC

I’m about to do something I don’t usually do: use this forum for a bit of shameless self-promotion. Despite the Hoya Athletics Department’s best efforts, there are going to be quite a few SU fans descending on DC this weekend for Saturday afternoon’s game. And as you might expect, there are some official parties going [...]


I know it was two days ago, and there is YET ANOTHER big game tomorrow, but it’s finally time to talk about the Georgetown sadness. Partly because I needed some time to process the loss, partly because this is the first chance I’ve had to breathe since then.
I’m not blisteringly angry about the game [...]
