Home Away From Dome for Syracuse Orange Fans

The curse of early afternoon road games

Posted by Tom on February 23, 2007

Tomorrow a theory put forth by my Dad’s friend Bill will be put to the test. We’ll call it “the Bill theory of hungover basketball,” which states that Syracuse always shits the bed in early (12:00-2:00) weekend road games – and plays particularly miserably in the first half. As you probably guessed from the name of the theory, this owes to an irresponsible party schedule the night before.

I’d love to know our actual record in these situations over the past few years, but this year the St. John’s game stands as our only example, and one in which the theory was unquestionably upheld.
