Home Away From Dome for Syracuse Orange Fans

These go to eleven…

Much like Nigel Tufnel, I think the Orange need “that extra push over the cliff”… specifically, I think they need 11 Big East wins to put themselves in the Big Dance this year.

At least, that’s my conclusion after a look at the mess that is the tourney bubble this year. The good news here is that that’s 11 wins of any sort, counting the Big East tourney, so this is certainly within reach. The bad news is that I’m not sure a bid is a lock even with 11 wins. A 10-6 regular season, a pre-quarters win, and a quarterfinal exit could make for a nervous Selection Sunday (though I personally think that would be enough). A win over G’Town could be a real difference maker in terms of the tourney resume…
