Countdown to Football Frustration

Next Frustrating Hoops Victory

Next Lacrosse Annihilation

Everybody's Workin' for the Weekend

This is a carnivorous blog. No vegetables allowed. That means you, Terry Shiavo.


Anyways, the lacrosse news is fairly plentiful today. Praise Allah. Here's the shakedown on National Orange Day:

Syracuse @ Princeton
1 PM - Class of 1952 Stadium
TV: CSTV; Time Warner 26
Radio: WAER 88.3 FM; ESPNRadio 1260 AM; Moneytalk AM 1350
On the Web: Syracuse ISP; WAER; Princeton; LaxPower Blow-by-Blow

The SU Athletic Department actually put out some game notes before gameday. Huzzah! This rivalry has really blossomed since the early nineties when Bill Tierney began setting the game back by decades with his stop-motion offense. Put on your boots, it's going to be a war.

Here are the game notes put out by the Tigers. Fear not, they're not written in latin.

How big is this game? The Baltimore Sun is weighing in with a preview. And this is Hopkins/UVA week. It's amazing SYR/PRN is getting any ink down south.

This story deserves a Paul Pasqualoni "special teams." With Syracuse's goals scored per game average down about 5 tallies an outing from last season, it's imperative that the Orange close defense tighten up on the man-down or Princeton will run wild.

Speaking of stats, here's an updated collection of them from the NCAA.

Toilet Bowl, eh? Well, Pfiefer has it half right. If Syracuse loses this weekend, that's where the lacrosse season will be headed.

Jason Doneger is a dork. The only thing the Syracuse asks of its lacrosse studs is to not get punched in the face by Johnnie Morant (sorry Mike Springer).

In the world of basketball, it looks like Jim Boeheim is getting desparate and calling on a legacy. This essentially is working out as a Rautins for Edelin trade. At least there'll be scholarship bodies on the bench....

And the Big East is going to be cutting edge football in everything but talent. Terrific. Just what I wanted. More downtime added to an already boring football product.
