There have been many comparisons and similarities between these to programs. Both Jims' win totals, BET and Season titles. Both have been to multiple Final Fours in the last 30 years. Scandals, suspensions, and unexpected successes.
Now, UConn and Syracuse share the 1 and 2 spots, respectively, on ESPNs 'Not Top 10' of the year.
Not Braun's faceplant, not the Mets' balk-off, not the Angels' wild-pitch-on-intentional-walk-off, not EVEN Garret icing his own kicker [not even on list?!?!?!}
See for yourself. At least with our play it's not so much 'Syracuse' as it is the referees.
