Countdown to Football Frustration

Next Frustrating Hoops Victory

Next Lacrosse Annihilation

Orange Slices

A super busy Wednesday has lead to a skeletal evening blog update.

Blog Updates
Even though things appear fairly dormant, there is a lot of stuff going down. This afternoon I updated the Tipping Points data and am still working toward making the blog look less drunk when viewed with Firefox.

As you'll notice, the data derived from Syracuse's last four games has yielded some interesting results. I especially enjoyed seeing the Orange accumulate a negative True Offensive Benefit value against Rutgers and Pittsburgh. Now that's classy.

Boeheim Tossed
First time in 30 years, eh?

I would've bet the tens of dollars I have in my bank account that Coach Boeheim would have been tossed at least once during his tenure before last night. That streak was almost as impressive as the lacrosse team's consecutive Final Four streak.

Around The Blogosphere
Big Ten Wonk is back, and the wonkiness is candy sweet.

And in other notable returns, Kyle Whelliston is on board for another season of defending basketball vagabonds. His first stop this season? The Carrier Dome next week for the Orange's tilt against Bethune-Cookman.

The Blue-Gray Sky has officially delved into the joy that is modified pythagoras. In a spirited essay reminiscent of many of the notes I've made about Syracuse football (and for that matter, college football in general), Jay does a nice job assembling the data and structuring a reasonable analysis.

If you're interested (and I have no idea why you would be), you can compare Paul Pasqualoni's pythagorized record to some of Notre Dame's greats by just clicking here and here.

If you're not reading mgoblog everyday, you should. In Brian's latest edition of "What Steams My Clam," the young Michigander takes Jason Whitlock to task for his blatant jackassery not once, but twice. Bravo!

Not to be outdone, EDSBS chimes in with their All-Race Team.

And finally, I find this incredibly interesting and am interested in seeing where Syracuse stacks up.
