There's one way Syracuse fans deal with disappointing losses in their lives, and that's talking Orange men's basketball. That's just what yours truly did Sunday night with special guest Matt Glaude, a.k.a. @HoyaSuxa and managing editor of College Crosse, and TNIAAM contributor Jeremy Ryan.
Here's a bit of a preview of what we talked about, nearly a half hour after Syracuse lacrosse's disappointing 16-15, double-OT loss to Albany and before the beginning of Georgetown-hate week.
- Glaude gives his thoughts on lacrosse's season-opening loss to Albany and discuss what he learned, if anything, about the beginning of a long season for the Orange.
- Glaude recaps his week of traveling to the XL Center Wednesday to watch Syracuse lose to UConn and then to the Prudential Center to witness the Orange down Seton Hall.
- We all give our thoughts on the state of the team, specifically the play of guards Michael Carter-Williams and Brandon Triche.
- On the heels of Saturday's game against Georgetown, which will feature a celebration of the 10-year anniversary of SU's 2003 National Championship, we all share our memories of that glorious day...Of course, the best story involves Syracuse alum Sean McDonough and Bourbon Street in New Orleans.
- Georgetown-hate week begins with Ryan and Glaude sharing their best Hoya-hate memories, while I try to figure out how myself, and a section of Syracuse fans, missed out on the glory days of this rivalry.
The podcast runs 1 hour, 11 minutes, so as always plan accordingly. A lot of good stuff about the '03 National Championship and what the Georgetown rival means to Syracuse fans, who all want to desperately win Saturday and move closer to earning the program's third Big East Conference regular-season crown in four seasons.
Listen and then feel free to share your National Championship and Georgetown memories below.
