24 Hours Later...


SYRACUSE, NY - The CursedCleveland.com board of directors and editorial staff made a pledge yesterday shortly after the seedings were announced to avoid any knee-jerk postings about the selections. We fully recognize the complexities involved, such as whether or not chairman Gary Walters had to purchase an additional airline seat for his ego en route to Indy.

Now, I have to fully admit my bias here, I did attend Syracuse and yes, I went on a double date or two with Eric Devendorf. But how does a team not on the bubble find themselves left out of the tournament all together? That makes about as much sense as the Norton Furniture ad campaign. Jim Boeheim was understandably incensed. He appeared on "Mike and Mike," "Dan Patrick Show," and the "Jim Rome" show. The guy had more radio air time in the past 24 hours than Justin Timberlake. So in case you missed it, he wasn't camping happily.

You have to imagine the collective Orange nation was on suicide watch last night (You think I'm joking? One former comedian and Cuse enthusiast had the Orange on the 8-line). Syracuse had made itself a pretty good home in the tournament during the Boeheim era. Unfortunately for the Orange, the Cuse is definitely NOT in the house this time around. Oh My God.

Maybe they should have scheduled better teams. I think they should have been (certianly over Ark.) but oh well. They werent going to do too much damage.

Hey Jim, next time try not losing to teams like Wichita St. at home, St. Johns, and UCONN.

Yeah, and not beating teams like Georgetown, Marquette and Villanova. Oh wait, they DID.
