As stated...

For all your vicarious praise and happiness or lamentations of our former no. 2 in waiting, Mike Hopkins.

I hope he and U-dub smoke baby blue today.

Go Huskies!

I feel dirty after having typed that last line...

How long before the pac10 rises again as a semi-formidable p5 conference?

Hopefully he can solidify their program so they are perennially in the mix once UNC , UCLA, etc. are on the rise again... Which is likely just a matter of time.

I hope the Huskies beat UNC and go to the sweet 16. My first year as a real SU fan, we beat a heavily favored UNC under Dean Smith and pre-Boeheim on the way to the Final Four. I have a special love for UNC losing in the tournament and still recall the day and the 57 times I watched the game in the lounge of Day Hall. Hopkins is a favored son of Syracuse and I want him to succeed. Go Huskies!!

reminder: he lobbied for & had both feet out the door for the usc job long before he "got hosed here."
Yeah. If I recall correctly I believe he interviewed for St. Bonaventure way back in the early 2000s.

Funny thing is, many wanted him to leave to get head coaching experience first rather than being a first time head coach taking over the program.

Would be interested to know if some of the same ones who said that, are now saying SU screwed up by “letting” him get away.
