87? 96? 10? any others? im goin with 96
I was the same way. I didn't watch a second of basketball until our first exhibition game. Avoided CBS and ESPN. Facebook status updates were my only source of information about the tournament. That was heartbreaking.2010 team was crushing everyone... double digit wins all over. They were at a diff level. I don't know which of the 2 years is better, but I can tell you I had to call out of work and dissappeared from all-things-tournament after the loss. Threw out all my brackets, stopped checking sports sites, no espn, nothing.
I actually thought the '95 team was better than the '96 team. IMO, one bad TO call from a title...
You hit it on the head, Alpha. That 1995 team could have breezed to the FF and taken out UCLA. That, to me, is still the greatest crime in SU bball. Luke Jackson makes probably the all time best steal in SU history, and then Moten stole the game for Arkansas.
Yeah, I don't see why everyone suddenly thinks the 95 team was so great. As has been mentioned, they were a 7 seed. A very good 7 seed, yes, but still not one of the best teams in Syracuse history.
