We've got a few Get To Know Your Orange Man profiles coming but I'm going to check out for the day. Just wanted to share a couple notes for Syracuse Orange fans headed into the weekend.
Class of 2012, congrats on graduating. You made it! Now you'll spend the rest of your life trying to get back there... (But seriously, enjoy it).
The Men's Lacrosse team will attempt to re-write their season on Saturday when they take on the rival-in-the-making Duke Blue Devils at Koskinen Stadium. Faceoff is slated for 12 p.m. Lose and you're just happy to have been there. Win and there's no limit of what we can do (cue Jefferson Starship!).
The Women's Lacrosse team will attempt to keep their historic season going on Sunday when they host the Dartmouth Big Green. The game starts at 4 p.m. at the Carrier Dome. Syracuse defeated Dartmouth, 22-4 the first time they played so, in theory, this should be easy.
If you've got a cake, cupcake, pie or other dessert picture you want to share for The Great American Cuse Cake-Off, send it in ASAP. We post the first round on Monday.
Finally, if you would do me a small favor and please share the link to my blogging classes with your Twitter followers, Facebook friends, LinkedIn buddies, Google Plus-ites?, and anyone else who might be interested, I will be eternally grateful. Appreciate it, 'Cusians.
See you here tomorrow for the lacrosse gamethread.
