We’re not dead

I feel happy…!

Astute readers of this space will notice that our last post was from just before Syracuse’s Final Four loss. The morning after the game, I could not bring myself to write on it, and in fact I went into self-imposed basketball avoidance mode. I did not watch the championship game, or even attempt to find out what happened. Eventually I found out that Louisville won… those jerks. The only good thing about it was that they beat Michigan, also jerks. Jerks as far as the eye could see. There was no possible way for me to derive any pleasure from that game, so I skipped it. And in the days afterwards, I found myself unwilling to really confront what had happened.

Of course it’s ancient history now; hell, the new team has already played a bunch of (Canadian) games. So I am going to assert Blogger’s Prerogative and not go back to that game, except to say that I still feel terrible for Brandon Triche. To have his final play in a Syracuse uniform be that horrendous charge call when he should have had the chance to tie the game… it still sickens me when I think about it. I hope he doesn’t dwell on it.


Anyway. Basketball will be here soon enough, so I figured I should dust off the old Commodore 64 and re-open this space. The above will be the extent of my picking at the scab of last year. Time for a fresh start. New conference, six new guys in orange (though one is redshirting), same ol’ head coach, and CJ Motherfucking Fair:

This is going to be one of the more interesting seasons in recent memory. It feels like there are more unknowns than in any of the past few seasons, and it’s going to be a fun ride.

In the meantime, we’ve got a football team that has found its quarterback (hopefully just in time), and is about to welcome the #3 team in the land to the northern shores. The field hockey team is back in the top ten, along with 5 other ACC schools. And the future looks bright… BRIGHT ORANGE.

So, Cuse Country lives! For a while, anyway. Carving out time for this pursuit is always a challenge but I’m going to try to be up to the task. At the very least, I’ve got a ton of former SU players pursuing careers overseas to keep tabs on. Can’t let that responsibility slide.

    Yes, extremely disappointing game in Final Four. I’m glad the player that played the worst in that game left early for the NBA. Sad we’re not in the Big East (RIP) but a lot of things to be excited about this season and I think we’re going to have an awesome team. GO Cuse!
