Syracuse v. Pittsburgh Recap

Alright, well that game sucked ass. First of all it was pretty sloppy on both ends with a combined 23 turnovers. 'Cuse was flat all night and the Blair and Young for Pitt were too much.

Here are some observations:

First of all the student section at Pitt has the worst name ever, the Oakland Zoo.

They had this dipshit announce the starting five and I thought he was from an actual Zoo in Oakland, CA (even though I don't know if they even have one.) During this interview this guy also said that he started at Pitt in 2001, and for those of you who have been in college that long, that means you should be a fucking doctor by now.

My main problem with this game was the refs. From the very beginning they were calling minor calls and stopping the game to discuss calls, just trying to make their presence known in the game. This happens all the time in both football and basketball and it pisses me off to no end. Just a small example, Routins hit a 3pt shot from about a foot behind the line. They stop the game for about 2 minutes to review. What the fuck is that?

"How much does Pitt need to win by again?"

The biggest BS call in this entire game was the technical on Harris for talking shit to a Pitt player. This was ridiculous because Blaire threw (dropped) the ball on Onuaku's lap after he got called for the charge, which is blatant taunting but wasn't called. I think that is fine but then to call a taunting T on Harris later makes it bullshit.

Anyway, that game sucked, I kind of figured 'Cuse would lose in Pitt, so fuck it. The Orange are off until next Sunday at 12PM when they play #9 Louisville. Look for the game preview on Friday or Saturday.

P.S. - Lavence Fields is still gay.

Sucking a dick? You decide.

  1. Hmm....8 years, started in 2001, a graduate student. I'm no expert on this but 4 years of undergrad and 4 years of graduate school means he will be graduating this year with his doctorate.

    Tim Higgins sucks.
