Wow, Syracuse needs to chill with all of this fouling. There’s a difference between playing hard and just being outright ridiculous. We are the worst in the ACC/NCAA when it comes to fouling. Archimede and Sinclair by far the worst offenders but Goldhar working his way on up there as well. This needs to end because this is not the WWE. How are we supposed to win games when key players have to sit out because they don't know how to act?

It was a really interesting game to watch. Archimedes was called for 2 yellows in the span of 5 minutes to get ejected. I thought the first was a horrible call; a routine foul. The second wasn’t even clear who the foul was on (50/50 ball). Unfortunate the ref played a bigger role determining the outcome than any player.

It was a really physical game. SU fouls a lot and that didn’t change here. They challenge all the time and go all out for 50/50 balls. Leads to a lot of fouls but they are ‘clean’ fouls.

Pitt was bigger and stronger. They look like a veteran team. They played very hard. Lots of dirty fouls where they didn’t challenge the ball. I didn’t see their red card but they could have had a couple of others earlier in the game.

Syracuse has a lot of talent but is very young. One of their best had to sit the game out due to 2 yellows. The ACC is so good this year, if SU can play 500 in conference play, they will probably end up with an NCAA big and a top 25 ranking.
