    #2 Syracuse at Cassell at 9 p.m. on a Tuesday during Winter Break.......

    This game couldn't come at a worse time for Tech. It's on at 9 p.m. on a Tuesday at Cassell during winter break. I wonder how many fans will actually show up? It's not every day a #2 team comes to Cassell. The only time Syracuse played at Cassell was way back on January 30, 1978. Tech beat #10 Syracuse 87-71. Maybe the environment and opponent will bore Cuse and Tech can hand them their first ACC loss.

    Haha that was funny. I know my crew isn't going, day after the MNC too. A lot of people work the next day. Poor scheduling

    Typical ACC scheduling...

    maybe they never make it out of syracuse. that would probably be best for VT.
    It's not that you are ignorant, it's just that you know so much that isn't so.

    Sadly, it's not hard to imagine that conversation.

    You nailed it. Hard to believe they never came to Blacksburg the entire time we were in the BE.

    Was hoping Cuse blew out Miami and came to Blacksburg uninspired, but a 49-44 win over the lowly Canes will likely make Cuse play hard on Tuesday night.
