UConn Lowers Academic Standards Even Further

Or something like that. The actual headline may be phrased differently.

Syracuse is the greatest underdog in the history of BCS

5

Stats don't lie. SU has been the underdog in 7 BCS bowl games, and has WON. EVERY. TIME. So, the key is to do well enough to make it to the BCS, but not as well as any other team in the BCS.

Ooh yeah, that's Madness!

The NCAA, for some ungodly reason, decided to make Muse's plodding, mumbling song "Madness" the official theme of the 2013 March Madness tournament. But they made a video featuring the Jade Scorpion himself at the 0:53 mark.

Scoop Jardine: A player transformed after five years at Syracuse

6

Good article by Donna Ditota. Quoted in it is Scoop's childhood friend: one Ernest Davis. I'm just loving Scoop more every day.

Vaya con dios, Andy Rautins

El Hijo de Leo heads to Spain to play for Lucentum Alicante. I like how the Knicks are referred to as "el equipo del Madison" by the Spanish writer.

Knicks Waive Billups: Will Andy Get a Shot?

6

The Knicks made some breathing room under their salary cap, but now don't have a clear starting point guard. Andy Rautins is a reserve PG, and will probably remain, but will this mean he starts getting into the rotation this season?

JoePa Will Not Coach Next Year

He says he will retire after this season is over, if he doesn't get fired by then.

The City's solution to low attendance: Let's kill off tailgating altogether

Nothing but good ideas coming out of SU's the City of Syracuse's offices, as usual.

Chipotle stock on the rise... for now.

Apparently, Wall Street has yet to find out that Scoop is trying to lose weight this summer. The bursting of the Great Burrito Bubble of 2011 is imminent!

Can a Big East Team Win It All?

Zach Hillesland writes in the NY Times Quad blog about what he sees are the five BE teams that could win a national championship. Syracuse is #4 due to, you guessed it, lack of leadership.

A Challenge to Orange Stat-Hounds

26

With the win at GTown this weekend, SU has split all three home-and-home series this season. Pretty rare, but rarer still must be the fact that the wins were all the away games. Has this ever happened before? I'm curious but I'm ironically both too lazy and gainfully employed to look this up myself. A shiny nickel (minus taxes and transaction fees) to whoever can determine this. UPDATE: Eureka! Through my own diligence (after some nearly-thankless help from krakatoan) I have found a season, but I had to go WAAAY back: 1935-36. On February 8, 1936, the mighty Orange defeated the evil HOODOO of Colgate in Hamilton, 42-37. But, my friends, the HOODOO was strong, and it came back to Syracuse to curse the Orange in a 32-37 loss on March 7. There were no other home-and-homes that season.

Georgetown Law FAIL

2

In the NY Times regarding shady practices among Law Schools trying to boost their U.S. News ranking, the following was discovered at a certain Washington-based university: A number of law schools hire their own graduates, some in hourly temp jobs that, as it turns out, coincide with the magical date. Last year, for instance, Georgetown Law sent an e-mail to alums who were "still seeking employment." It announced three newly created jobs in admissions, paying $20 an hour. The jobs just happened to start on Feb. 1 and lasted six weeks. A spokeswoman for the school said that none of these grads were counted as "employed" as a result of these hourly jobs. In a lengthy exchange of e-mails and calls, several different explanations were offered, the oddest of which came from Gihan Fernando, the assistant dean of career services. He said in an interview that Georgetown Law had "lost track" of two of the three alums, even though they were working at the very institution that was looking for them.
