Attendance Question... (are we really as much of a basketball school as we think?)

Syracuse football average attendance: 37,953 (capacity for football is 49,262) Syracuse basketball average attendance: 23,618 (capacity for basketball is 34,616+) So it suffices that there are...

Luke Winn on Conference Realignment

Luke Winn is the best; he thinks the Big East (basketball) is going to be the worst once Syracuse, Notre Dame, Pitt, and WVU are all gone.

3rd Year Coaches

4

With all the talk about whether or not HCDM belongs on the hot seat, thought this was an interesting article to see how a number of third year coaches (many of them in the Big East)are doing by comparison. And if you don't feel like reading the whole thing, just check out this snippet on Skip Holtz at USF (as it sounds eerily familiar): The past: After a successful tenure at East Carolina, USF expected Holtz to pick up where fired coach Jim Leavitt left off. But after producing an 8-5 record in 2010, the Bulls limped to a 5-7 record last year. The Bulls started last season 4-0, including a 23-20 upset of Notre Dame, but missed the postseason for the first time since 2004 by losing seven of their last eight games. The present: The Bulls just can't seem to get any traction after last season's late collapse. After losing to Rutgers 23-13 on Sept. 13, the Bulls lost 31-27 at Ball State on Saturday. It was USF's first loss to an opponent from a non-BCS league since joining the Big East in 2005. The Bulls host No. 4 Florida State on Saturday. The future: USF extended Holtz's contract three years in July and his deal runs through the 2017 season, so he doesn't seem to be in any sort of danger. The Bulls have been ravaged by penalties and other self-inflicted mistakes during their slump.

This makes me sad. So does Jonny Flynn not finding a roster yet. And so does world hunger, sort of.
