Home Away From Dome for Syracuse Orange Fans

Colgate and beyond

Posted by Tim on December 9, 2006

As any good Central New Yorker can tell you, you know it’s summer when they’re rockin’ in Weedsport. You know it’s winter, meanwhile, when the SU men’s basketball team crushes Colgate into a fine maroon dust and sends them back to Hamilton in an envelope. But apparently hope springs eternal for the Red Raiders. The student paper observes that victories over Dartmouth and Binghamton prove that Colgate’s “exorbitant grit, hustle and heart will sometimes make up for its deficiencies in size and athleticism.” Probably not tonight, though, as Jimmy and the team will hopefully work out some of the frustration of the last two losses on a team that features only two players taller than 6’8″.

In other news, the Daily Orange looks ahead to preview the upcoming Hofstra, Pitt and Marquette games, all of which go down before the students return from winter break.

Also, SU alumnus and New York Times staff writer Pete Thamel is taking college basketball questions over at The first Cuse Country reader to get a question answered will win the honor of seeing his or her name in small type on this blog.
