Countdown to Football Frustration

We're Pretty Good

That call was bullshit John! Bullshit!
Well my friends, despite your best efforts you pulled out a win. Paul Harris and DNic were the heroes of the day. One thing is clear from this game though... we kind of suck. Sure we're ranked 14/17. Sure we have Paul Harris. Sure we're freaking Syracuse. But we kind of suck. The (always) frustrating thing is we are better then we played. We can be the best team in the conference if we played to our potential. I think we've all said that Syracuse is a second half team. But we can't afford to be a bad first half team against Pittsburgh, Georgetown, and Marquette. We must stop turnovers. We need to not get into foul trouble early. We need to rebound more and suck less. Jim Boeheim, who is usually even keeled during press conferences (minus this), was visibly and audibly disgusted with his team on the floor tonight. I'm sure they will be sufficiently yelled at by Mr. Syracuse tomorrow, but until then they will clearly ponder the crap performance they had tonight.

This commentary could be more in depth, but I thought I could just put in as much effort as the team did tonight and still walk away with the win. Stay tuned for the developing soap opera that is SU Basketball.

    Well put, and on the spot accurate.

    Sometimes short and to the point is all that is needed.

    Mookie and Devo continue to show the foul problems that plagued them last year. Roberts disappeared in a game (again); I was hoping he was over that, but apparently not. Josh Wright is struggling.

    On the positive side, Nichols is playing with some consistency; we need him to keep it up, instead of playing Casper once conference play starts. Rautins is playing better. And Harris is living up to his rep so far.
