Sample of Orange Flavored Schadenfreude

Syracuse's game thoughts:

Random:

How are they hitting shots from effing Georgia Tech's campus?

Welp time to start drinking.......more heavily

On Mitch McGary:

We're making McGary look like the POY and it’s killing us.

If McGary and Aaron Craft had a baby I would punch it right in the face

F*ck Mitch McGary, f*ck these announcers, f*ck the refs, f*ck the entire state of Michigan, f*ck every Georgetown fan celebrating this, f*ck both the old and new Big East, f*ck the refs once again.

In all honesty McGary is a helluva player.

Well, one thing they talked about was that Stauskas would have to deal with a mismatch. Some people on here kind of scoffed at that, but clearly they had a point. He was a non-factor and saw few minutes.

What had to kill them, though, were the three point daggers from Spike and another 30 footer from Trey. No defense can stop that. And their shooters were not on. Southerland had some open looks but only 1 fell in if I recall.

Yeah, but it was a glancing blow, thrown at the ground, bounced sideways and hit the couch, bounced back towards TV and ricocheted off.  Didn't even crack the screen, but it went black permanently.  Seems like this guy threw the hat straight at the screen and the solid brim busted it.  Best part is, he wants to start a Kickstarter to get money for a new one.

I think many of their fans are taking this game harder than Syracuse fans.  It's one thing to melt down when your team loses a close game--it's Spartyesque when there's an epic melt down and the Spartans aren't even playing.  I'm also pretty sure they've started more threads about Michigan's victory over there than we have on MgoBlog.

My in laws took it pretty well. I did decide to leave early in the first and head down to the bar so I didn't have to feel like I should be golf clapping when the team scored. All in all pretty nice fans. The SU players were also good in the post game presser, choosing to say the fouls could have gone either way.

I have no bone to pick with Syracuse.  They made the Final Four and had a great season.

They thought they could get into the heads of a young team of freshmen and made it a strategy to trash talk a little before the game.  Did not work any better than the 2-3 zone.  They had to play the cards they had . . . Defense and an experienced team.  Wasn't enough.
