News andNotes: Thursday Edition

Below, news and notes for Thursday...

In the past, Colgate and Cornell were our two biggest rivals in pretty much everything. Today, they're mainly known as "convenient local connections that Jim Boeheim can easily plug in to fill a non-conference schedule." Okay, that's a little too harsh. Although both these schools are a little too focused on hockey for us to really get invested in basketball games (well, besides when Cornell was actually a top 25 team a few years ago) with them, (P.S.: I want men's hockey a ton at Cuse) they still provide us with some nice traditional matchups. We still maintain a really big lacrosse rivalry with Cornell that's resulted in a ton of great games (probably none more than the 2009 NCAA Championship), so get to those games whether they're at the Dome or in Ithaca if you can. And for nostalgic purposes, you can relive the memories of Syracuse-Colgate football games of past days on, yes, Wikipedia.
