First things first…

A reminder to Syracuse University basketball fans that the screwing the Orange received at Duke will in no way make any meaningful difference in your lives today, unless you bet the mortgage money on an SU win.

Next, we can expect SU Coach Jim Boeheim to suppress the truth that he so eloquently expressed when the “screw de grace” was administered by the official who called a charge on C.J. Fair’s basket that should have tied the game with 10 seconds remaining.

JB’s repeated scream of “That’s bullshit!” as he stormed onto the court was wholly accurate. It’s a shame he’ll need to temper the truth when it was so visible for all to see.

On the other hand, the call was consistent with the mountain of crap that the zebras liberally plopped on the court throughout the event. The critical blocking call on SU’s Michael Gbinije, run over by an out of control Jabari Parker,  was a particularly smelly highlight.

The ACC, with the addition of new teams this season, remains proof of that old saw, ‘The more things change, the more they remain the same.”

Getting screwed at Cameron is simply the price of playing in the league.
