The SU pond


Obviously the news of the Maryland/Rutgers additions to the Big 10 12 14 is the buzz in the college sports world. Lots of speculation about what each school brings (I don't really know), and what their motivations are (money). But I read this interesting article by Darren Rovell on ESPN.com because we as SU fans know we are NEW YORK'S COLLEGE TEAM. I was intrigued by the Nate Silver mention (here's guessing he knows exactly which 607,157 people are the avid Rutgers fans), so I took to Google to try to locate the referenced blog post. Along the way I found this bit of gold, and while I refer you to the link for some good clean fun (i.e. delusional Rutgers fans), I wanted to specifically point out this commenter's post and come back to title in the subject line.

Hopefully these MD traditionalist are silenced.

Idea to float RU out there to snag a bigger fish has crossed my mind but Syracuse is not even in the same pond. If RU and MD to B1G is true. You would have to be a hellUVA dUNCe not to see the next master stroke by Delaney.

(emphasis mine)

I guess technically the commenter is correct, we aren't in the same pond. SU's pond is a much bigger, more successful pond. But therein lies my biggest frustration with Rutgers football getting decent over the last 7 years - they got just good enough when the league got bad, and now they think they're Division I elite.

Congratulations on selling out ever being successful again for the Big Ten Network dollars. Michigan and Ohio State are already salivating at the much easier access to NJ talent they will now enjoy.
