If you didn't know, the Syracuse Orange men's and women's teams were at the forefront of a pep rally/send off at Manley yesterday before the teams departed to Houston and Indianapolis. Jim Boeheim gave a very Jim Boeheim line during the pep rally when he stated,
"I love being here today because there's no second guessers here. There's no naysayers here. Everybody here is for Syracuse University, Syracuse basketball."
You have to love it. Unless of course you're an unnamed media personality that hates Syracuse (Yes, you Gottlieb). You can see highlights from the pep rally below.
Following the pep rally the men's team boarded a plan and took off to Houston. The Orange will practice on Friday 2-2:50 p.m. If you happen to be in Houston the practice is open and admission is free. Nonetheless, our friends who run the Syracuse Orange youtube channel posted a video of the team's arrival in H-town.
You can't tell me that you don't imagine Boeheim saying "Get that *expletive* camera out of my face," in curmudgeon Boeheim fashion at the one minute mark.
