I need to feel better before sleeping.

Ok, so my first post tonight was decidedly negative. I am terrible, horrible, shitty, awful, despicable person. I need to get a life, eat shit, etc. But I wanted to try and look on the brightside before hitting the hay. So here I am trying to be positive. This year was indeed amazing. I am very, very unhappy with how it ended and I feel this team, even without AO, was capable of a much better performance (and capable of a win). Yes, I expected a better performance. Sue me. But, but. I think I am almost more sad to know that I will never see Rautins, Onuaku and almost certainly Wes take the court in Syracuse jerseys again. I will miss the Hair. I hope Wes goes somewhere on he up and up and I hope Rautins gets drafted in the second round to a team that will give him a chance. AO may not get drafted (probably not in fact), but his wide body will be sorely missed next year (nh?). Now, positive is what I said I'd be, so here goes:

I think Brandon Triche will vastly improve. I think what we saw from him against Gonzaga is what will be closer to the norm next year. Boeheim believes in him, so I will to. Joseph should have an excellent year next year. I think his ceiling is higher than we may know and he may be a Naismith dark horse next year. I also don't think we will drop off a cliff next year. I don't think we will be ranked #1 at any point, but it's hard for me to believe we miss the tournament next year (knocking wood in terms of injuries).

Other possible positives:

Will the Mookpocalypse be upon us? Will Southerland do to Big East teams next year what he did to preseason teams this year? Can anyone take the Hair mantle from Andy with pride?

 

I feel a little better I guess. You may now go back to telling me to eat shit and get a life. I will work on both, though I'd prefer having a life to eating shit if it's all the same to you guys.
