Syracuse's 2012 Conference Titles Put Them In Rare Company

Syracuse and San Diego State are the only two schools in America that have a regular-season conference title in men's hoops and football in 2012. That's pretty cool.

You know, it didn't even occur to me that the Syracuse Orange men's basketball team and football team won regular-season Big East titles in the same year. Of course, it's not the same athletic season, but, hey, you take what you can get.

That seems like a pretty rare feat when you think about it. And it turns out that it is.

I knew that continuing to follow that SD State account would come in handy down the road.

So yeah, add that note to the many others that are proving Syracuse Athletics to be an extremely well-rounded athletics program these days (Good work, DOC).

Sure, regular-season conference titles don't win bar arguments, but they're still impressive feats. That Syracuse is winning multiple ones in multiple major sports is something worth celebrating and appreciating.

Let's go, men's lacrosse. Get it together.
