The great thing about sports is the unpredictability of it all. It's better than any dumb reality show, because unless you're talking about pro wrestling or harness racing (and who doesn't love those two activities?) the outcome is always in question. It's why they play the games.
In college sports, especially football and basketball, scheduling plays a large role in how a team's season ultimately shakes out. In football it can make the difference between going bowling or staying home and in basketball, I think all Syracuse fans know how the out of conference schedule matters in terms of making the NCAA tournament.
With that in mind, in early December, in an effort to silence critics who point out Syracuse historically has not played many true road games out of conference, SU went down to Virginia and beat the mighty Cavaliers on their home floor. At the time was a huge win and a big FU to the NCAA selection committee. It seemed like a great win to have on the resume.......except there's one little problem, it turns out Virgina sucks. They don't just suck a little, they suck like a porn star.
Last night Clemson took them behind the woodshed and beat them by 30. I tried to watch part of the game, but it was more painful than staring at a mug shot of Don Mattingly's wife. The Cavaliers are now 1-7 in the ACC and 11-10 overall. Who knew at the beginning of the year that beating St. Joseph's would end up being a better win than beating UVA?
