Slack-ing Off With The TNIAAM Staff: Customizing the Syracuse 404 Error Message

New, 31 comments

Each week, we'll take you behind the curtain to see how the TNIAAM sausage gets made...

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Every day, the TNIAAM staff uses real-time messaging service Slack to make up for their lack of geographic proximity. This can result in conversations that have a lot to do with Syracuse... or little to do with Syracuse. Our (hopefully) weekly feature, Slack-ing off, captures those conversations so you can relive every moment. Sorry in advance.

Last week, a story circulated about the creative 404 error message that Auburn Tigers Athletics was using, which trolled Alabama Crimson Tide fans with a reference to the 2013 Iron Bowl. Today, I briefly saw an error message on the Syracuse Orange Athletics website, which is where things kicked off. Enjoy...

We should see who can come up with the best 404 troll for Syracuse

Andy Pregler

Lol. My submission would be "404 Page Cannot be Found... and Georgetown Still Sucks"

Kevin Wall

"404 Page Cannot be Found...but don't worry Cal can still get back in this game"

Steve Haller

404 Page Cannot be Found with FGCU.gif below it would be acceptable as well.

Claudia Ceva

404 Page Cannot Be Found...but the Cooney Brothers are hard at work on fixing the link

Brian Tahmosh

404 Page Cannot Be Found...but the NCAA promises to fix it in a timely manner

Dan Lyons

404 Page Cannot Be Found...The classes that this page took during its freshman year of high school are still under review.

Andy Pregler

404 The Page You Are Looking for Has Been Sanctioned

Joe Leathersich

"404 page cannot be found...Student Athlete #7, computer genius, is working on it"

Claudia Ceva

"404 Page Cannot Be Found...It will be up and running again once Northwestern WLAX finally turns the ball over."

Andy Pregler

404 Page Cannot Be Found... we think it's scheduling 'Bama to a home and home in 2025

Brian Tahmosh

"404 Page Cannot Be Found...it's likely buried in Roy Simmons' grave with the 1990 lacrosse trophy ... but you didn't hear that from me"

Steve Haller

404 Page Cannot be Found... all disloyal idiots responsible for this have been sacked

Andy Pregler

404 Page Cannot be Found, can I interest you in a Metlife Game instead?

Invisible Swordsman

404 Page Can Not be Found...it made it into the red zone and was never seen again.

404 Page Can Not Be Found...but Mark Schwarz is diving in an on-campus dumpster looking for it.

Claudia Ceva

404 Page Cannot Be Found...feel free to stand and clap until it's fixed.

On that note, we called it a day because no one in the Slack room felt they could top that one from Claudia....but that doesn't mean we don't want to hear from you. Tell us what 404 Error Messages you think would work
