Syracuse Football & The Quest For Belk

New, 22 comments

The time is now to take what is rightfully ours, Syracuse fans. And what is rightfully ours sound a little bit like the noise you make right before you have one of those throw-up-burps.

We have quested for so many things together, Syracuse Orange fans.

We have quested for a mythical city called Toronto.

We have quested for the sweet, sweet nectar of Beef.

Now, as we begin our inaugural season as members of the ACC, we must quest anew. We may not have ever fulfilled our hopes and dreams (though we found Pinstripe-y ones instead). However, that doesn't mean a valiant warrior simply ceases to heed the call of adventure.

And so, I give you, The Quest For Belk.

You know what we're doing here by now. Syracuse fans are supportive and love their Orange, but they're also somewhat realistic (at least until basketball season). We're not saying we need a National Title or trip to Pasadena to make us happy (though we would not turn down either). We set goals that are slightly more attainable.

And the bowl game that usually accepts fifth-best ACC team seems a worthy goal, indeed.

If you're wondering what a Belk is, it's apparently a department store. But really, it's so much more. It's an idea. It's a moment in time. It's a state of mind.

The time is now to take what is rightfully ours, Syracuse fans. And what is rightfully ours sound a little bit like the noise you make right before you have one of those throw-up-burps.

"Belk."

Say it with me.

"BELK."

Louder.

"BEEEEELK." /throwsup

Now we're ready.
