Daily Links - Where'd Our Intensity Go?

Where's that Syracuse defensive intensity? | Orange Basketball Blog -
Pittsburgh, a team that resided second from last in Big East scoring statistics, performed better offensively than any other team the Orange faced this season. Some of that was the result of SU’s press, which on occasion gave up easy transition points. Some of it, too, can be attributed to the Panthers, who simply shot the ball better. But was some of it, perhaps, the result of a lack of usual intensity in the zone?

Orange::44: The SU Week That Was
The Big East Conference started for Syracuse both away from the Carrier Dome (and sadly into New Jersey) and at home.

Three Idiots on Sports: About That Out of Conference Schedule

The University of Washington released its 2010 football schedule today. Its home game against Syracuse University is scheduled for Sept. 11. But then again, we already knew that.

Inside Lacrosse examines what the past decade brought to men's NCAA lacrosse - ESPN
The "noughties" (2000-2009) has been the most dramatic decade in the history of men's college lacrosse. It has been full of highlights (and some lowlights): the first NCAA championships held in professional stadiums, record-breaking crowds, two undefeated national champions (Johns Hopkins in '05 and Virginia in '06), the expansion to the south and west, the Duke rape scandal. Decades of slow growth ended at the turn of the new century and exploded rapidly.
