Semi Romantic Waxing's of a Rivalry: Why Syracuse-Georgetown Will Never Die

It's really late, I'm really tired but I've just had a blast hanging out with super hyped Syracuse alumni who are all ready for the new record of 35,012 and the final installment of the rivalry.

I can't say that I've lived through the years of the Big East's foundation. I don't know Manly outside of what it is today. I don't know about white towels or awful plaid suits. All I know is that at the very core of being a Syracuse fan is the idea that Georgetown in inferior.

Fake rivalries are the ones fans and the media are excited for but players don't see any differently than another game. A true rivalry is when for x minutes athletes are driven not just by the desire to win, but the desire to defeat an enemy. That's what makes rivalries so beautiful. It only takes one spark. The right spark to create a tradition that transcends your legacy as a player or a coach.

It took six words for Syracuse-Georgetown.Six words and dash of history to create a rivalry that defined a conference.

The move to the ACC doesn't change that. It hurts, it stings to know we cannot laud our superiority over the Hoyas year in an year out. Unless the Orange win tomorrow. And in March.

This is the climax to another chapter in a rivalry that will never die. Georgetown will always suck. They will return to the Dome. They fans will not forget. While the rivalry may not have the "luster" it used to have it will never not exist. You do not simply forgive because the beast has left. You simply wait until it returns and unleash it all again.

The Hoyas will always be Syracuse's main rival. Tomorrow is going to be the greatest game I will ever view on this campus because of the story.

Let's enjoy this one. And remind the Hoyas they still suck.
