Let’s face it, Syracuse has officially hit rock bottom. We thought it after the 33-point loss to St. John’s at home, but Sunday’s loss to Boston College confirmed it.
BC hadn’t won an ACC game in 664 days (March 10, 2015), but it handled the Orange on Sunday, 96-81.
As you might have imagined, the fanbase doesn’t know what to do. And they’re taking to Twitter to express their feelings.
@cusesigel Looking at yesterday's conference upsets, is it conceivable Cuse goes winless in ACC play? Assuming BC is easiest games on slate?— mrdodger1966 (@mrdodger1966) January 1, 2017
I think this is a pretty high overreaction, but Boston College did go winless in league play a year ago.
@cusesigel I'd love for this team to turn it around, but at this moment, it is just wishful thinking based on nothing.— Derek L (@DLRIT) January 1, 2017
This tweet was more accurate. One can be hopeful, but you must be realistic, too.
@cusesigel @DLRIT same ppl who will jump back on the ship when they make a run.. they will even buy the t shirts on Marshall street..— B (@Beeezusx) January 1, 2017
You have to appreciate the confidence here. But again, this isn’t last season.
@cusesigel ben this is bad— walshy 2016 (@theryanwalsh) January 1, 2017
Yes, Walshy. Yes it is.
@cusesigel thing is we have only played one (wisc) maybe two good teams (south car) and will have 6 losses. Losing to 4 bad teams. Killer.— Robert Masouras (@Roberob88) January 1, 2017
Unlike last season, the Orange doesn’t have any good wins. A year ago, Syracuse defeated UConn and Texas A&M at the Battle 4 Atlantis. This year, uhh, Monmouth?
@cusesigel what has happened to this team?? Thought they were going to be very good?? They are terrible. It's embarrassing— Brad Kratz (@Kratzey16) January 1, 2017
I can confirm this team is not very good right now.
I guarantee you that our walk-ons could play a better zone than our scholarship players— Syracuse Memes™ (@Cusememes) January 1, 2017
This was an emotional tweet, so I can’t say much because we’ve all been there. And it’s not as bad as the “Syracuse won’t win an ACC game all year” tweet, but the walk-ons probably wouldn’t play a better 2-3 than the starters. But, hey, you never know, right?
Tyler Ennis leaving after one year has killed Syracuse. He would be a senior right now. Most thought he would play 4 years in college.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) January 1, 2017
I will say that Ennis leaving early hurt, but for a five-star guard to stay in college for four years? Unlikely, Jeff. He was a top 5 point guard. I know he was a little undersized, but five-star kids don’t stay around for four years anymore. It’s all about potential for the next level.
Syracuse fell to 8-6 overall, and 0-1 in ACC play. The Orange hosts Miami on Wednesday at the Carrier Dome.
