Shame on you, Gary Walters.
Eds. Note: There is now in effect a 48-hour self-imposed moratorium on comments concerning Syracuse's unfathomable exclusion from the NCAA Tournament. The suspension started at approximately 7:00 PM last evening.
The reason for the moratorium is twofold. First, leveling unmitigated accusations at Gary Walters and his nine other incompetent colleagues would be both in poor taste and superficial. Second, structured rumination is the hallmark of first-rate commentary, and given the fact that this year's selection committee appears to have acted capriciously in its decisionmaking, this notebook will not replicate such results.
