St. John's

Let me start off by saying I am a Syracuse Fan. However how can one not be excited by what the Redmen (never the Red Storm) have excited the city and made the Big East that much better? NYC is a basketball town. Yankees win always, Mets win once when I was in 6th grade, Giants win too much, and the Jets are always, well, exciting. However - when the Knicks are winning - its electric. Look how a .500 season has gotten every into basketball again? Well, I remember the old Redmen team that ALWAYS beat the 'Cuse when it mattered - Walter Berry blocking the Pearl's shot, etc... And it has been too long since the Johnnies have gotten backpage - and after they turned around the season - they might deserve front page. It feels lost thought because the lost decade has created a whole generation of fans that do not appreciate Red Storm basketball.

Its nice to have them back - and I look forward to beating them in the tourney - but rooting for them as a 4 seed in the Tourney.


  1. If the voters rank them based on their recent performance and stop holding those lousy Fordham/St. Bonaventure losses against them, they'd be in the top 10 Monday.

    That won't happen, but somewhere around 15 is realistic, but 19 is probably where they'll go.

    Win out (Seton Hall and SF)this week and they get 2 byes in the Big East Tourney and with a win there they could get a 3 seed in the big dance!
