'Cusian Of The Year - Championship

Alright, I'm calling it. In the closest match-ups on the entire tournament, the Final Four went down to the wire. By a mere vote, Greg Robinson eeked out Jimmy B while Mike Hopkins won by a small but safer margin over Donte Greene.

And here we are...

It's somewhat apropos that Mike Hopkins makes the finals over Boeheim. The Hopkins' succession story is ha-yuge news for Syracuse fans and throws 30+ years of stability into flux. The ensuing controversy that followed just took it to the next level. Not to mention the fact that most of the faces you see on the court for SU were personally recruited by Hopkins and might not be here without him. His impact on the Syracuse sports landscape this season has been major, and he's only getting started.

As for Greg, it was hard to imagine that he wouldn't be here. The man responsible for yet another painful football season is possibly the most talked-about coach at Syracuse...and most of it is rather unkind. He has a special way with words but its his way on the football field that made Syracuse and the nation take notice as the Orange continued their reign as one of the worst BCS teams in the country.

So who's gonna be your 'Cusian of the Year for 2007? Get to votin'. We'll name a winner on Friday.
