The world of sports from a few Syracuse students

Remember, it can always be worse

So Syracuse slept walk through the first half of last night’s 76-71 victory over Richmond, but the Orange played a decent second half to win a game that, as Jonny Flynn told The Post-Standard, last year’s team wouldn’t have come back to win.

How about what happened late last night in Arizona? Alabama-Birmingham and Arizona played down to the wire…and what transpired is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen in college basketball.

Not once, but twice! Inconceivable.

Arizona is a program in turmoil following legendary head coach Lute Olson’s sudden retirement weeks before the season began. Last night was strike one for interim coach Russ Pennell, who last year, was a TV announcer for Arizona State men’s basketball games.

Maybe he should go back to his old gig.
