Syracuse Daily Links - Syracuse Basketball "Overrated"?

Where have I heard that word before…? - Cuse Country
I don’t think he was just BSing to motivate the team. It is an honest assessment of how things stand. But that’s the key — it’s how they stand now. He was careful to say the words "Right Now" when making this statement. He said them twice.

Three Idiots on Sports: Thank You Doug Marrone
Thank you for getting this team bowl eligible for the first time since 2004. Thank you for your doing it in a manner that emphasizes honor, integrity and hard work.

Orange::44: Monday Morning Quarterback 11/15/10
It wasn't pretty. Nothing about it was. It was New Jersey. It got cold once the sun went down. Rutgers Stadium doesn't sell beer. Neither team was in any hurry to put up points. But when it mattered most, Ryan Nassib & Co. got the job done. Syracuse beats Rutgers 13-10 and becomes bowl eligible for the first time since 2004!

"Excited for the kids," Marrone said when asked to describe what he was feeling as he walked off the Rutgers Stadium turf with victory No. 7 in hand. "I’m not a person who doesn’t have a personality. I might not show it, but inside of me is such a great joy for the players. And not just for the players. It starts with them, but for the community and the fans and the lettermen. "We’re not where we need to be yet. We’re not even close. But I think now people realize we’re moving in the right direction."

The determination is very easy to see in this bunch, which I like, but I’m not sure all of them realize that rotation spots are not won and lost in two games, an impression I got from watching both games this weekend.

Conference races to impact BCS lineup, even awful Big East - NCAA Football -
This year for the Big East is by far the worst ever for a major conference. The average computer ranking in the BCS computers is 66.25, slightly below both the Mountain West and the WAC. That has everyone punching their favorite bag again, calling for the league's automatic bid to go away. In fact, many have reported that it is, in fact, in jeopardy. Not true. There is no provision or process in place to take away an automatic bid from a league that has one.

When you're in the middle of something like that, when you see it unfolding right in front of you -- well, the 2003 (men's basketball) championship was great; it should be the obvious pick -- but that six-overtime game was unique.
