If you take a look at Joe Lunardi's newly updated bracketology, (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/bracketology) the first thing you can find is the obvious 1 Seed for Syracuse, and the opponent: 16 seed, Stony Brook. But if you are an insider, like me, you click the match-up and find something potentially horrible.....
First you see the wax poetic on Syracuse:
A season sweep of Georgetown is just another piece of a very special Syracuse season. The home loss to Louisville is now forgotten.
Then the terrible news:
The America East race is coming down to Stony Brook (10-2) and Vermont.
VERMONT!!!!! Are you kidding me?
In the America East, Stony Brook is 1/2 a game ahead of Vermont. Now I understand the America East Tourney will determine the NCAA team, but can Lunardi torture SU fans anymore than by matching us up with that conference, and potentially that team?
God help us all if that happens because EVERYONE will talk about that terrible day back in 2005.
