Syracuse: Deserving of its 25-2 Record
Last week at this time, this author wrote that Syracuse was a flawed team that is and deserves to be 25-0. Part of the logic was that a team that captures victory from defeat is deserving of that–even if arguable luck and good calls play a role. Syracuse haters cannot focus on one or two plays. One week later, the only reasonable conclusion is that Syracuse deserves to be 25-2. Again, this author is a diehard Syracuse fan that has been following basketball since, well, forever. Rest assured, it was before the Carrier Dome was even conceived. Much like Syracuse haters could not focus on one or two plays as demonstrative of luck or referees dictating the outcome, Syracuse fans cannot do the same here. It is what it is. The team is a fair and deserving 25-2.
