Greensboro set to invade Syracuse/Boeheim
Well someone on the NIT selection committee has a since of humor. They scheduled UNC-Greensboro (co-champions of the Southern Conference) to play at Syracuse on Tuesday night at 7.
The Spartans (25-9) were beaten in the Southern Conference Tournament finals by ETSU.
So we now have round 2: Greensboro vs. Boeheim

Well, if you can't bring Boeheim to Greensboro, bring Greensboro to Boeheim.

I'm sure this was just random luck of the draw, since we know the selection committees never try to arrange pairings. It was also fortuitous that Northern Kentucky gets to play Kentucky and Florida Gulf Coast drew Florida State.

Ken these were all random seeding occurrences...surely you don't think the NCAA/NIT would do something like what you're saying. 03-lmfao

We actually had a poster on the syracuse boards that predicted that if we didn't make the tourney this would happen. 03-lmfao

Of course..that is what the NIT is banking on...more viewers for ESPN.

That's actually really funny. I wonder how ratings will shakeout in NC.

Well wouldn't you know it, the Syracuse Chiefs have countered the Greensboro Grasshoppers promotion with a Jim Boeheim VALUE night.
http://www.syracuse.com/chiefs/index.ssf..._diss.html

Syracuse, N.Y. -- The Syracuse Chiefs believe Jim Boeheim carries a lot of value, and the baseball team will show its support of him April 7.

That's when the Chiefs will hold a "Jim Boeheim Added-Value Night'' during its game against Rochester at NBT Bank Stadium.

Among the Chiefs' offerings:

Post-game fireworks show
A portion of the 50/50 raffle and $1 of every ticket sold for that night will be donated to the Jim & Juli Boeheim Foundation
T-shirt giveaway for the first 1000+ fans, the total number of giveaways will equal Jim Boeheim's total career wins to date.
Beer specials in honor of National Beer Day
Jim Boeheim look-alike contest during the game, the winner will receive a family four pack to a future game in 2017.
Free admission for fans with a valid North Carolina ID



BTW the Syracuse Chiefs have one of, if not the lowest attendance in AAA while the Grasshoppers have one of the best attendance records in Single A ball (the 'Hoppers average a little over 100,000 more fans per year than the Chiefs).

Anything for a buck.

I don't like Jim Boeheim, at all. I have nothing against UNC-Greensboro.

That said, I hope Syracuse wins by 25 points.

Bad bet for the Chiefs...game is too weather dependent.
