Rough - Cuse Country
No, I’m not talking about the immense hurt that the SU field hockey team laid on Georgetown 11-0 over the weekend. At least was rough in the proper direction. But while that was going on, you and I were watching the SU football team lay a fat egg against Pitt and get soundly run out of the Dome.

Pucko's Perspective: Another missed opportunity for Syracuse - Gates, NY - Gates-Chili Post
As good as the crowd Saturday felt, it was still over nine thousand short of Carrier Dome capacity. The fact is that between 1987 and 2006, the Syracuse football team averaged over 40,000 fans every year. Between 1988 and 1999, it averaged over 45,000 fans nine times in eleven years. Losing football games is bad for a program. Losing a fan base is devastating.

Syracuse went out and acted like the team I love to hate, getting crushed by Pittsburgh 45-14. That sent the Orange tumbling to sixth and launched the Panthers back up near the top of the poll.

A club called the Milky Way in the lower level of Schine was supposed to replace the Jabberwocky, a club known for its alcohol-filled happy hours and musical performances. The Jabberwocky, which was located in what is now the computer lab beneath Kimmel Food Court, hosted the likes of James Taylor, who sang "Fire and Rain," and Cyndi Lauper, remembered for her hit "Time After Time."
Sizing up the Big East | New Jersey Hoops Haven
Villanova, Pittsburgh and Syracuse are Final Four candidates. Georgetown and West Virginia are solid NCAA Tournament teams. Marquette, Seton Hall and St. John’s will vie for spots in the dance. It’s hard to foresee the Big East getting fewer than seven bids, even in a (relatively) down year.
Week 7 review/Week 8 preview - Big East Blog - ESPN
Worst hangover: Syracuse. The Orange kicked away a lot of momentum and fan excitement by losing 45-14 at home to Pittsburgh on Saturday. They surely thought they had improved to the point where they wouldn't get blown out at home like that in a conference game. You could sense the resignation by the home fans, many of whom headed for the Carrier Dome exits midway through the third quarter.

Just how good is Ameen-Moore? His home state schools have the full court press on him. Two weeks ago, Ameen-Moore was at Colorado State. He also attended the CU camp over the summer, and has an offer the program. Alabama and Kansas State are also listed as schools interested in Ameen-Moore.

Wow. Paid attendance of just 40,168 for the biggest home game in nearly a decade? I wrote last month about how the fan base had abandoned the program after years of embarrassment that started at the end of the Pasqualoni era. But to have almost 10,000 empty seats on homecoming. Stunning.
The Cuse Connection: What Went Wrong Saturday???
First thing that automatically comes to mind when you win a huge game and then drop a home game the next week is that it was an "emotional letdown." We all remember when Syracuse defeated then #19 Louisville in 2007 on the road. What did the Orangemen do the next week? They lost on the road at Miami of Ohio, a school that had a SIX game home losing streak.
