Morning Cup O' Mud: Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

New, comment

Happy Syracuse day, 'Nova Nation! Tonight, we host the #1 Enemy Of The State Syracuse Orange in an attempt to get our season back on track. 8-8 is an awful feeling, but 9-8 over the #1 team in the country sounds so, so sweet. We'll have our preview with TNIAAM up in a little bit. Until then...

On to the news.

Villanova looks to upset top-ranked Syracuse | PhilaHoops
Your obligatory, "We can do this!" preview. Look, this isn't out of the realm of possibility, but the odds are stacked against us. Severely I might add. I'll only say this - Syracuse has a weird thing with us. They never play to the level they are capable of against 'Nova and even their fans know it. (Editor's Note: Q/A with TNIANA coming at 10:30 am ET)

Syracuse Orange at Villanova Wildcats Preview |
"Syracuse is three wins away from achieving the best start in school history, and there's little reason to believe it won't happen." (Raises the middle finger....and holds...and holds...)

Syracuse vs. Villanova: Scoop Jardine, Dion Waiters From Philadelphia, FYI | Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician
"We call Syracuse ‘South Philadelphia University.’ We’re all from South Philly. To have three guys from the same neighborhood go to the same school, that’s (unusual). Especially a prestigious school like Syracuse," Jardine said of himself, Jackson and Waiters. "We all could have stayed home and made our Philly schools really good. We got some guys in Philly who could make one great school. But Syracuse is a 4-hour difference. It’s close to home but far enough away that you can go get a great college experience. You’re playing for a Hall of Fame coach. You know, the stuff we get up here, it’s not the real world." Hey Scoop - check your record against 'Nova. Maybe you shoulda stayed home, bra.

No around SB Nation today. Revel in your hate for Syracuse, young Skywalkers!
