How the hell is this not on the list?!?!
Pat Forde of ESPN.com wrote an article with the hottest college basketball rivalries. Now I firmly believe that Syracuse v. Georgetown is one of the hottest these days, and of any and all days. But I could understand if maybe the big national media overlook it. What I cannot believe is after the best game of the year last season in college basketball Syracuse v. UConn did not make it. (Editor's Note: It is either Connecticut or UConn, not UCONN. UConn is an abbreviation of University of Connecticut and thus the U is capitalized and Conn is abbreviated appropriately as such.) Either would be acceptable for a rivalry in the Big East, the best basketball conference in the nation, without question. Villanova v. Pitt does warrant inclusion these days, but Syracuse v. Georgetown or Connecticut deserve to be on the list somewhere. He gave honorable mention to Rutgers v. Seton Hall, the "Jersey Brawl". No, sorry Pat. Not even a question. How is it a true rivalry when both teams suck? Either way, this list is ridiculous and a joke, and any good fan of college basketball could see that. Even while drunk. H/T to Amanda.
On that note, I'll be out of Blog Central this weekend for the grand national holiday of Independence Day, celebrating our amazing American heritage and their love of brewed beverages. I love holidays connected with American History, and this is the best one of all. Have a great long weekend and enjoy yourself!
