I was trying to avoid making a FanPost, but I never really found a good thread to say what I wanted to, so my apologies. While I am new to posting, I have been an avid follower of CardChronicle for quite a while, and I frequently visit the other Big East team pages as well.
I just wanted to stop by and say congratulations to your guys and to all of you for the outstanding season that you had this year. I am a die-hard Louisville fan through and through, but I was thrilled to be sharing the Final Four spotlight with Syracuse. I have a lot of respect for your players, in particular Brandon Triche. He is fun to watch and seems like a really good guy that loves his school. Credit of course has to be given to MCW and CJF as well--they all contributed to a few scares for Cards fans the season. Aside from players, I also have come to really respect you guys as a fanbase. From skimming through your page, I've seen mostly respectful and tolerant posts about other teams, through both victories as well as defeats. In Atlanta this past weekend, I had mostly positive interactions with everyone that I met from Syracuse, and I really liked the way you guys represented the Big East. Everyone was very classy and polite, and I wanted to acknowledge your good sportsmanship from one basketball fan to another.
As UofL and Syracuse have predominantly been the most successful teams in the league lately, I have always felt a friendly rivalry with Syracuse in the Big East. I look forward to many more years of competition in the ACC!
