Setting The Standard

Hoozah and kudos to Michael Dupras and Mike Waters at the The Post-Standard for their work on Orange Legacy: A History of SU Men's Basketball. This interactive multimedia presentation is just the kind of thing every Cuse fan needs to see, if for no other reason than to brush up on their history. It's chocked full of photos, time lines and records you'll want to keep referring to.

Think of what this will do for you at dinner parties. Now, when asked what the first Syracuse basketball team was like, you can answer "You mean the team that lost their inaugural game 23-8 and went 2-2 overall? They were a rousing bunch. Now, Lord Tennywhistle, shall we finish this gentlemanly conversation over a round of double-malt scotch while I regale you with tales of Lew Andreas?" instead of your usual "I don't know, why don't you ask Boeheim, he was there."
