Home Away From Dome for Syracuse Orange Fans


Posted by Tim on May 29, 2007

Well, OrangeRay has wrapped up his look at the greatest Orange Men of all time. As he suggests (and others have mentioned this too), the poll’s final results are likely influenced by a healthy dose of selection bias.  After all, the kids on the Internets probably never saw Roosevelt Bouie play. Hell, a lot of them probably never even saw Rony Seikaly play. But darn near 100 percent of SU hoops fans saw The Block.  And nearly every college basketball fan has seen the disastrous consequences of Howard Triche’s failure to get a hand in Keith Smart’s face.

Look, I’m not saying we need an ESPN Classic just for SU hoops. But would it be so hard for the university, the NCAA and the networks to get at least a representative sample up on iTunes or something? I pay $1.99 for an episode of The Office, so why wouldn’t I pay for a Syracuse game from 1989?

  1. Great idea. I think we’re probably a year or so away…once SU figured out how they can charge $4.99 per clip, that’s when you’ll see it.

    I’d love to be able to see some of the old games from the 70s and 80s. I can remember the Bouie & Louie era, the tri captains, and the Pearl era, but its been so long since I’ve seen clips of them playing, it sure would be nice to see.

    As I mentioned on Ray’s site, Moten is just so underrated by most Syracuse fans, it’s not even funny. He’s top five….easily.
