Pitt-cher Perfect

OK, this is now the twentieth winning game recap in a row I’ve written. By now you know the drill:

  1. Description of my personal game-watching experience that is relevant only to me
  2. Statement of obvious factoids and game trends that have been thoroughly discussed on other sites
  3. Nugget of insight that I self-importantly feel has been under-reported elsewhere but is nevertheless key
  4. Various declarations of awe at the athletic feats of the players and the wisdom of Coach Boeheim
  5. A brief peek forward to the next game

…annnnd scene.

Seriously. All this winning has basically exhausted my supply of superlatives. You saw the game. I saw the game. SU won the game. This happened:

And all is right with the world. In fact, it’s better than all right. It’s perfect.

PS. Here’s how I feel after finally beating Pitt, for the first time in ages, and purging the stink of their Dome winning streak:

    It occurred to me this weekend that I’m a vastly more self-motivated, articulate, and prolific writer when I’m doing critical analysis and/or ranting about something that’s frustrating me. When a team is as flawless as this one has been so far, I’m mostly just speechless. Or, the topics that flit across my brain as potential subjects for posts immediately strike me as minor, insignificant, fleeting, nit-picky, etc. Like, is it really worth writing a post about how Fab Melo’s propensity for getting into foul trouble likely means that many games we would have won by 25+ will instead be 10 to 15 point victories? I mean, really? Is that worth writing about? Cuz that’s all I’ve got.

    It’s an awesome problem to have though.
