How can you compare SU playing Duke and Carolina to Va. Tech and Rutgers? How about Clemson and Florida St.? That would be a fair comparison. You are painting an entirely different picture to your readership.
I think that Duke and UNC coming to the Dome
would capture the imagination, even more than the
current day Georgetown-Syracuse matchup. At the very
top of the Big East is Pitt, ND and UConn. I think
these teams are very good, but I think that Maryland,
Duke and UNC would draw more national attention.
Talking trash about Rutgers? The last time the Orangemen came to the RAC, they walked out with an ‘L'. Don't forget that.
Point well taken! I'm a huge fan of the RAC – it's a great arena that gets so loud, the walls begin to shake. I also have a lot of respect for Rutgers and pull for them ever year, but they're not Duke.
Do you watch Big East college basketball? If you do, you must be
completely different sport than what I have been watching. In the mid
watched Allen Iverson, Ray Allen, Kerry Kittles, and John Wallace light
Madison Square Garden. In the late 80's/early 90's Mutombo and
Georgetown battled other NCAA title contenders like Seton Hall and
And even before that, I watched the Big East Conference dominate the
decade of the 1980's.
I couldn't agree more that the matchups in the mid 90s
were great. I enjoyed watching Iverson, Kittles and
Allen play, and I enjoyed watching them establish
themselves as one of the great basketball conferences
of the era. Let me stress "of the era." In the past
few years, UConn and, until this year, Syracuse have
been the only legit contenders (accounting for 2 of
the last 5, not 4, championships).
