Syracuse students agree: This one should be much easier.
Syracuse is back in the friendly confines of the Carrier Dome to take on yearly rival Colgate from 30 minutes east. One thing is for sure, Syracuse played way better against Villanova than they have all season. No reason to think that shouldn't continue against a way less better team than Villanova. Colgate hasn't beaten the Orange in a very long time. That shouldn't change tonight. If Rakeem Christmas stays out of foul trouble, he could very well have a career night. I like McCullough's chances to rebound from his sub-par game (and body surfing), and Cooney to demonstrate he really is out of a slump, and not just that his game at Villanova was not an anomaly. Either way, Syracuse is not going to be challenged by Colgate. Orange by 14. This game will be available nationally on ESPN U / WatchESPN at 7:00pm. I won't be watching live but John will be in the Dome. I'm sure not having that much fun. Colgate never is. And a Merry HOODOO to you sir.
