Ah Wednesday, you cruel evil day of the week - offering just enough hope that the weekend is near, yet injecting enough reality to know that until we hit noon, the week isn't even half over. Let's get to some reading shall we?
The Syracuse men's basketball team has a new member, full Post Standard coverage is here. On the football side of things, the Southeast Sports Blog relives the SU-Tennessee game of 1998, we were in the dome that day and IT WAS A BOGUS PASS INTERFERENCE CALL.

Round 2 of Iron Ref is up and running, make sure you get over there and voice your opinion.And whatever you do, don't miss WNBA history - its historical.....and stuff.
