News and Notes: Early Afternoon Edition

Below, some news and notes for the afternooon. Above, another screenshot from 2009-20110 March Madness. President Obama's prediction that Cornell will upset Temple in the first round of the NCAA Tournament proved true. The Big Red would advance to the Sweet Sixteen, knocking off two Top 25 teams (Temple and Wisconsin) along the way. The Big Red would also earn for themselves a final No. 17 ranking in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches' Top 25 Poll.

  • NunesMagician.com writes, "One of the great shames of Upstate New York college sports (or New York State college sports for that matter) is that Syracuse is basically alone on an island. Sure, St. John's and Cornell can play good basketball. And yes, Army plays good football now and again. But really, we're the only major multi-sport college in the state. We have no rival. And nothing's more fun, and gratifying, than playing a rival."

Syracuse is so good at Wrestling and Ice Hockey; so good.

And, yeah, they are in a whole other league than us in Lacrosse. We get blown out every time by them.

They are superior in every sport.
