Going to Salt Lake City means that all 4 teams playing there will have neutral games. However, there is a way to change that. As you may recall, Butler and Xavier had a memorable game that featured a clock error this year. As you can imagine, there is still some bad blood over that game.
SU and Xavier fans should use this to their advantage. Because they are both against Butler, there should be an agreement, similar to what happens during the MLB "last one in" playoff voting, where Phillies fans and Tigers fans voted for each others players to get them into the All Star Game.
What should happen is that SU fans should stay and root for Xavier to win, and Xavier fans should come early and root for SU to win. It would give both teams a slight advantage during the games which definitely helps in March.
Therefore, I ask any and all Syracuse fans attending to pass this along to both fan bases. Make it a Syracuse vs. Xavier Elite 8 game.
