Syracuse vs. Louisville: Senior Day Cometh

When the Syracuse Orange host the Louisville Cardinals on Saturday, the seniors on the team will be playing in the Carrier Dome for the final time.

That means SU crowds will watch Kris Joseph and Scoop Jardine put on their home uniforms and play on Jim Boeheim Court for the final time. The Scoop & Kris Show...nevermore.

Of course, don't forget the other three seniors on the roster as well. Nick Resavy, Matt Tomaszewski and Brandon Reese. All of whom have contributed to the team during their time here.

Of course, looking at that list, you realize something. There's five seniors.

There are five players in a starting lineup.

Do you think...I mean is it possible...I mean....would Boeheim start all five starters on Senior Day?

It seems to be a trend picking up steam all over college basketball. I don't really remember Boeheim going out of his way to do this in the past, though maybe I just never realized it.

On one side, technically the game against Louisville "doesn't mean anything." Syracuse has locked up its seeding and nothing will change, other than national poll positions, if the Orange lose. Not to say SU is throwing in the towel of they start three walk-ons. Besides, you can take them out at the first whistle and even if you're down a couple points, what's the harm?

On the other side, that just doesn't sound...right. Big East game. Boeheim vs. Pitino. Louisville has owned us the last few years. They need the win in order to get back on track headed into the BET as they look to sure up their NCAA seed. Do we really want to give them the motivation of "these guys just put in a bunch of walk-ons" against us? Even if we're only talking about thirty seconds, that's a pretty critical thirty seconds.

I don't know. My gut tells me Boeheim won't do it. But do you think he should?
