'Cusian Of The Year, First Round - #8 vs. #9

Congrats to DOCTOR Daryl Gross who advanced over Quentin Hillsman in their first round match-up for 'Cusian of the Year. For the next few days we'll be finding out who Gross will face in the 2nd round. It's #8 vs. #9.

As a reminder, here's the schpiel:

I've picked the 16 people who I feel have most influenced Syracuse athletics in 2007. You may haggle with me over the exclusion of certain players from basketball and football but know it was a tough call towards the end there. There were people in their programs that had more of an effect than them and ultimately there was more going on than just basketball and football (believe it or not).

We're doing this like Time Magazine picks their Person of the Year. It's not a popularity contest and it's not about who you like's about who had a greater effect on Syracuse athletics throughout the year. Throw personal opinion out the door.

#8 Donte Greene

Was highly touted before he even got here.
Confirmed his spot atop the SU offense
Appreciated nationally.
Scored a lot.

#9 John Desko

Kept his team in the mix.
Got some courtesy votes.
Ultimately, didn't have a good season at all.
Still not a fan of joining a conference.

Place your votes through 12/26 and then the next match-up will begin.
