Even in Defeat, Boston College Screws Syracuse

Damn Boston College. Just when I was ready to revel in their embarrassing loss to an unranked November...I was reminded that Vermont, who from now until they pull a George Mason, will always be referred to as "Vermont, who upset Syracuse in the 1st round of the 2005 NCAA Tournament."

Even by losing, BC wins by opening old wounds against their former conference rival. There's a hatred bubbling below the surface between these two schools, one that needs not be settled in the classroom or even in the government, but on the sporting field. I'm not asking for an ongoing rivalry with them in football and basketball, I'm demanding it.
