Okay... so there are tons of fanposts already and normally I avoid adding more of the same stuff but I can't help it because no one obviously is saying what I think should be said first right now... or maybe I just missed it.. whatever.. it's been a tough couple of days.. (not really besides for the obvious sucking on thursday it's been great! but that's not the point..)
Support our Seniors!
Of course, they aren't even really seniors anymore are they? They are gone. Flown the nest. Off to successful post-college careers in something, I hope.Of course, I'm disappointed and want to cavetch and hope and wonder... but why bother? I just want to put out for all to see that I love these guys and everything they did for this team..
Andy Rautin.. you were our cold-blooded assassin.. a 3pt shooter with no conscience.. your leadership and confidence led us through this season and made it all possible.. i wish you great success in whatever you do (I think you guaranteed at least a pretty nice euro contract in your immediate future if you want that!)
Arinze Onuaku.. we hardly knew ye big guy.. you have been my favorite player on this team for a couple of years now.. and not only is it really hard to see you go.. I can't believe how this year ended for you.. i really wish you could have gotten the chance to be the boss in the trench during this tourney run.. but your heart, determination, and character will lead you to great success no matter what your future brings you. So go get healthy, big guy and don't blame yourself for the kinds of things we can't control..
Special Honors.. Wes... bro.. relax.. you were great this year.. it was fun to see your explosiveness and i'll be interested in seeing where you land in the NBA.. but I don't see you as being the first NBA lottery level talent in ages to kick back and play out his last year.. I openly welcome you in if you were to!! but we know where you are not going to be next year, right?
The sun will shine in Syracuse again.. for today.. let's thank those who won't be with us next time through..
