In an apparent effort to make 30,000 Syracuse fans flock to their local Goodwill and Salvation Army superstores, the SU athletic department has dubbed the February 1st game against Rutgers as "Dress Like Coach Boeheim Night."
As the press release states:
So, what it comes down to is that the athletic department is really interested in making sure that everyone wipes that shit-eatin' grin off their face and start looking like like someone stole all of your candy. The look isn't "throwback"; it's more like "throwaway."
Fans are encouraged to dress in clothing similar to what Coach Boeheim wore when the Dome opened in 1980.
Those who participate in the contest should register at the Syracuse Athletics marketing table in the backcourt area prior to the game. The top five contestants who dress most like Coach Boeheim will be selected and brought out at halftime and presented with a gift pack from the SU Athletics Department.And, of course, you can't forget the greatest gift of all: being ridiculed by your friends until you snap and gun down 15 people at a local McDonald's.
