What a fantastic day for Syracuse. This is without a doubt the best long term solution for our school. The big Ten never made sense and the Big East had become a Greek Diner at its worst. Think about the excitement of NC Duke Florida State Clemson and our old foes BC Miami and VT coming to the Dome. Hoops take on a whole new world sure we are going to miss some of our old foes but i think we can expect to see Gtown on the schedule and St Johns as well. Syracuse is relevant again. We are back with the big boys and off the respirator. Lets face it without a deal like this we were dying a slow death. Funding was next to impossible and recruiting to the Big East was becoming tougher and tougher. With this move we will have the resources to compete and we have found a natural and perfect fit for all of our sport teams as we are an Atlantic Coast School. The move made sense years ago and makes even more today. I have been following SU football since 1964 and for me today will go down as one of the greatest days in the history of SU. My hat is off to the administration especially DG. Great job by all truly a home run and program saver!! Go Orange!!
