He wasn't arguing that losing close is better than losing by 30, he was pointing out that your asinine take that the team was "overmatched" was just plain false.Way too many fans like moral victories. Winning a title is a binary outcome. We could have lost to Michigan by 1 or by 30 and the result is the same, we lost and we didn’t win a title.
Seems many fans on this board are okay with never winning another title. They’re okay with Nova, UNC, KU, and UConn winning titles multiple times. I want Syracuse to win another title. If Red doesn’t have the team back to an elite level where they are putting a team on the floor that is capable of winning a title then he’s not the right guy.
We’re all about to watch Hurley win a title after 5 years at UConn, yet many here are getting their panties twisted stating he needs (must) win a title within 7 or 8 years.
I’m hopeful Red will do it. I look forward to having Syracuse return to an elite stage. I hope fans are comfortable when we win another title. Seems many here don’t even want to set lofty goals. Low expectations equal low standards.
