Home Away From Dome for Syracuse Orange Fans

What’s wrong with this picture?

Posted by Tom on December 19, 2006

I challenge anyone to take a look at this picture and tell me there’s not something going on with this team. Why else would Eric Devendorf, one of our strongest offensive players and most promising leaders on this team, be sitting on the bench during the huddle in the closing seconds of a close game? You’ll note that both Watkins (who had fouled out a few minutes earlier) and the random dome cop over Boeheim’s shoulder are more involved in the game plan than Devo.


Also, does anyone keep track of the stat for field goal percentage on put-backs? We have to be somewhere around 20%. These guys consistently blow the second, third, and sometimes fourth chance on offensive rebounds, to the point where I’m sure we’d be better off if they kicked it back out every time. And it ain’t just, since we were as guilty of it as ever with him out for the entire second half.

    I think Devo has no confidence in his shot right now, and thus neither does Boeheim. He’s not going to get clutch minutes until he proves he can shoot better than 1-6. He’s sulking because he knows he’s in the doghouse and not going to see the floor in the final 5 minutes of close games.

  2. I think that cop was issued his mustache the day he left the police academy.
