Several of them had us in the elite 8.

Perhaps all the Syracuse fans who had them going out in round 1 before even seeing who they play, will put a chip on their shoulders as well.

I think 1/5 on ESPN had us in the Elite 8, losing to Florida. Not positive though.

Gotta think positive:

First Round: Team that shouldn't make a cinderella run and isn't a good match-up against us
Second Round: Play an OSU team that is playing rough hoops too and only has a day of zone prep (Remember when the were undefeated and #3 in the nation and Ron Morris had them ranked like 16th in his poll? That man must be a CBB genius!)
Third Round: Embiid-less Kansas
Fourth Round: Florida with one day to prep for the zone

Cake-walk to the Final Four

(disclaimer: I will never consider the play-in round the "First Round" of the tournament)

The art of picking the Final Four as an ESPN analyst: pick the four teams from name conferences that won their conference tourney in the most impressive fashion. Not much insight beyond that.

Can't remember the last time a Syracuse bball team played with a 'chip on their shoulder'.

Call it a "chip on their shoulder," or call it swagger, or whatever else, but I will always remember the 2012 tourney when we absorbed what seemed like a thousand three-pointers from Wisconsin and still pulled it out. And we never looked scared for a single minute. I was profoundly proud of our team's showing that day.

I think you've got a bad memory, or you're engrossed in hating, or you just haven't given it enough thought. Work harder.

Wow, from one post you say I am an ignorant poster, a hater, and flippant in my responses. Heck can I push the ignore button on myself? ;)

I was just on USA today, and all 8 writers who did brackets did not have us going past the 2nd game. We lose to either Ohio St. or Dayton. Wow. We have really lost respect. Oh well. I think that has happened before, and they were WRONG!!! Also just analyzed Florida's schedule because so many seem to be picking them if not Mich St. I think they are ripe to go down. They have won 26 straight games. Too many in a row. They have pulled out several close games, especially in the past month. They barely won today. Ready to lose. I think Virginia right now is a hot team. U of A also, but is the PAC 10 really a test. I think our number 1s are in trouble this year.

So a chip on the shoulder makes up for a lack of a bench, no 3 point shooters, etc?
"No 3 pt shooters". I guess you like hyperbole.

Hey i never said a chip on our shoulder would guarantee anything. I just hope we get one and have a good showing in the ncaa. However far it takes us. go Cuse!
