Syracuse students agree: Winning games is still fun to watch.
Syracuse is basically playing for pride and the desire to win the games left on the schedule. That's enough. The real question is, can Syracuse overachieve and win games they shouldn't be in? That's a question for another day, as they head to Pittsburgh to take on a Panther team that is in a similar station to Syracuse. However, they recently beat a very good Notre Dame team at home, a game that, by all accounts, they shouldn't have won. So which Pittsburgh and which Syracuse team will show up today? I just don't know. Pittsburgh has like one good player. Not too dissimilar to Syracuse. Frankly I think both teams will play well. Unless someone from either team gets hot, it will be close. And I'm just going to give the edge to Pittsburgh because they are playing at home in the Pete. So I'll say Pittsburgh by three, getting revenge for last year. But we'll always have this. And Syracuse was the first team to win in the Pete. Of course. Anyway, this game is available nationally on ESPN 2 / WatchESPN at 4:00pm. Also at 4 is the season opener for Syracuse Lacrosse, taking on Sienna in the Dome. That game is available locally in New York on TWCS Channel. For everyone, it's on WatchESPN. Enjoy. John is attending the VCU / St. Bonaventure game, so he'll be unavailable for the game today. I'll see you at our usually meeting place however.
