As the regular season winds down and the NCAA Tournament looms, it's time to start thinking about the road Syracuse is going to take if they want a chance to actually get to the Final Four in Houston. There's plenty of bracketology seeds and regional placements out there. We spend most of our time focusing on the seed, but where we play those games is also going to have an impact.
Just looking at the places the Orange could end up in the first and second weekend, there's spots that look really appealing and there's spots that don't.
1st Weekend Locations: Washington, D.C., Tuscon, AZ, Denver, CO, Tampa, FL, Cleveland, OH, Charlotte, NC, Chicago, IL & Tulsa, OK.
2nd Weekend Locations: Anaheim, CA, New Orleans, LA, San Antonio, TX & Newark, NJ.
So what does the road to Houston look like for Syracuse? I want to know. And in order to grease the wheels, Supercuts has provided a prize pack for you.

You've got through Sunday to enter your comment below. I'll be choosing a winner at random on Monday.
So, do you want to see the Orange start in Washington, DC since that would be a "home" game? Or would it be our other "home" Tampa? Or does Charlotte makes sense so Orange Chuck can go to the game?
What about the second round? Newark obviously jumps out at us, but what about New Orleans? Syracuse has good history playing there, should we take advantage of that? Leave your comment below...
