The Beginning Is Nigh

"That sounded like a prayer. A prayer in a public school. God has no place within these walls, just like facts don't have a place within an organized religion."
-Superintendent Chalmers, The Simpsons

Syracuse University is a public university where decisions are made based on hard, irrefutable facts (or in the case of the students at 1 am, dependent on which take-out menu is more accessible, Cosmos or Sabastino's). Syracuse does not dabble in the unknown, we're a leading student-centered research university for crying out loud. Our press releases wouldn't lie!

Well someone needs to get the memo out to Mike Hopkins about what's what around here. During the
Seventh Annual Clare L. Smith Golf Classic, Hopkins was asked his thoughts on one-day coaching the Orange:

I'm just really blessed to be able to be here at Syracuse for so long. One day, hopefully, God willing... name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit... I'll be able to coach my alma mater.

Unless by Father, Son and Holy Spirit you're referring to Jim Boeheim, DOCTOR Daryl Gross and Jake Crouthemel, you might want to look elsewhere for support my friend. Cause honestly, I don't know if you're aware of who pulls the strings around here...he ain't no cuddly-bearded guy with great abs. There is a mighty overlord controlling the ebb and flow of Syracuse basketball...and he is no benevolent being. He is a fierce creature of the black, able to summon the dark forces of Hell against anyone, be they man, woman, child or Hoya, who dares cross paths with the Men of Orange.

REPENT, Mike Hopkins. For the sake of your soul! For Boeheim 3:14 says
"Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline and make run wind sprints until they vomit. I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and my wife will bring a fantastic side dish."
