Syracuse Pushed For Louisville Over UConn, Says Louisville

Jim McIsaac

According to Louisville AD Tom Jurich, Syracuse (along with Florida State and Clemson) pushed hard for Louisville over UConn as the 14th member of the ACC. That shouldn't make our upcoming games with them awkward or anything.

And you thought the upcoming home-and-home between the Syracuse Orange and Connecticut Huskies was going to be heated already? Imagine how pissed off they're gonna be after this...

I can see the DOC Gross Logic at work here. UConn is kinda-sorta close to NYC and we're New York's College Team, so...no. I happen to think the rivalry would have been good for us as well as having another Northeastern partner. That said, Louisville probably was the smart choice if we're only allowed to take one.

That said, it's understandable that UConn fans are a bit unamused.

So, uh, if you're going to that SU vs. UConn game this season, bring protective goggles. And not the kind that do nothing.
