For background on the Chipotle Curse, please click here, start with the oldest story and work your way forward.

October 26th, 2010 - After reaching critical mass, the Chipotle Curse is declared dead in a public forum. Despite opening a store in the Syracuse area, the football team openly ate Chipotle while racing out to a 4-1 start en route to a bowl game. One should note that the curse was defeated specifically by the Syracuse football team, not the Syracuse basketball team.

January 18th, 2011 - Chipotle officially announces that they will be opening a new restaurant on Marhall Street, encroaching even further on the Syracuse University populous. Their wanton disregard for a history of cursing Syracuse Athletics to doom is appalling.

January 25th, 11am EST - Kris Joseph tweets "The Chipotle on Marshall St is gonna do numbers!!!" openly defying the Gods to re-start The Chipotle Curse.

January 25th, 10pm EST - Syracuse loses at home to 8-12 Seton Hall by 22 points, their worst home loss since 1998. The loss will likely send the Orange tumbling down the rankings and confirm them as "pretenders" to the rest of the nation.

The Chipotle Curse hath returneth. Deny it if you choose to but let it be known that you do so at your own peril. We have until April for the restaurant to open and officially doom us to an eternity of Seton Hall losses. Enjoy what small victories we are granted in the meantime.

That Taco Bell mystery meat doesn't sound so bad right about now, does it?

(No, it still sounds pretty awful. You should probably just raise your own cows from now on...)
