Cuse Country

Home Away From Dome for Syracuse Orange Fans

Slow news week

Posted by Tim on December 29, 2006

If you’re actually reading this, you probably already know that it’s been a slow week here in Cuse Country. Sorry about that. We’re having a hard time getting juiced for tomorrow’s big game against St. Bonaventure, perennially one of the worst Division I college basketball teams in the country. I’ve already spent too much time this season worrying about games I wouldn’t have given a second thought to. I don’t think anyone can blame us for snoozing on a game we should win by 30.

So don’t try it. Seriously.

We might not be talking to much about the matchup against the Bonnies, but other people are:

  • According to this Buffalo News article, Syracuse will test St. Bonaventure’s biggest weaknesses: “Giving up too many rebounds … and inconsistent execution in the clutch.”

  • Demetris Nichols believes the thumping SU just dropped on Hofstra will prove to be a shot in the arm, reports the Utica Observer Dispatch. Says D-Nic: “The guys have their confidence back. That should be good for the Big East.” Let’s hope so. Also, props for calling St. Bonaventure “lowly.”

  • The boys got a couple days off for the holidays. You know, a little time to open presents, pray for peace on Earth, that kind of thing. And now? “Coach let us know we’ve got a couple of days off, and when we get back it’s really time to start getting down to business,” The Post-Standard quoted Paul Harris as saying. You might be wondering if Harris is for real. His response? “For real.”

  • The best preview of this game I’ve found so far belongs to Matt over at Orange 44, who has done the math and determined that St. Bonaventure sucks so bad that SU should basically just sit back and let them beat themselves. I agree — there’ll be fewer opportunities for us to eff it up that way.
