The Big City Classic Is Not Big, Located In A City Or Classic...Discuss


I'm not entirely sure that's how to write a sentence, but the point is noted.  No. 3 Syracuse will take No. 4 Princeton in the Big City Classic tomorrow night at 7pm.  So many storylines at work, where does one begin? 

There aren't many games that could follow a No. 1 vs. No. 2 match-up and hold its own but Syracuse vs. Princeton is one of them.  Throw out the records and the rankings (though both are usually extremely good).

The Orange will be looking to avenge last season's 12-8 loss to the Tigers in this very spot, one of the few lowlights in an otherwise great season.

With a win, SU would likely move back into the No. 2 spot in the rankings (unless Virginia loses close and the pollsters decide not to vault the Orange over the team that beat them).

I've got a big BCC preview going up over on the Mothership shortly and I'll link to it ASAP.  In the meantime, get all previewed up with the links and videos below.  If you're heading to the game, let the kids know in the comments.  Pretty sure The Glaude and the Orange44 gang will be in tow.  You'll want to take plenty of photos of them in compromising situations...

(By the way, please watch the Chris Daniello video below if for no other reason than to admire his sweet, sweet 'stache).
