State of the Orange.....


Just wanted some thought from some fellow fans here looking at the arrival of a new season for syracuse sports.......How does everyone feel about this era of Syracuse sports? How does it compare to decades prior? I really think this has been a good start to the 2010's....

1)Football has been to 2 bowls, gone 21-17 since the start of the 10-11 season....i think most of us can agree that nobody knows whats going to happen this season....we could go 4-8 as easy as 8-4......I guess we will have to just watch the games and find out

2)Basketball has gone 91-21 starting from the 2010-2011 season, going to the elite eight twice and the final four last year with lots of promise for this year..and years to come. Im guessing that sometime this decade(?) Boehiem retires and Hopkins takes over..

3)Lacrosse on the other hand....while we have gone 53-16..since the 2010 season.. we havent had good post season success. Set aside last years great run to the title game, 2 first round exits and a 2nd round exit. It could be worse, but this is Syracuse Lacrosse....than again we it seemed like yesterday we were back to back national champs...Wining one or two of those this decade is assumed.

4)And yes i know there are many other sports we play but i felt fine leaving it at our big 3......

Im only 20. i wanst alive for the glory days of the 80's in football and that year we almost one it in basketball.., i didnt see players of the 90's like Mcnabb and Wallace, Molten and Harrison....I remember from the 2001-2002 basketball teams and on..how we fell apart that year and misses the ncaa tourny, only to win it all the next year...i remember the opening of the 2002 football season....getting blown out by Miami(49-?)....firing Pasqualoni for some awesome guy name Greg Robinson.... And i remember those days of the Powell brothers......I feel like this has been a better decade compared to last decade...But the 80's and 90's still seem superior at the moment....and if any of you can remember the 70's..60s.....even the 50's.... Bless your soul. Feel free to comment!
