In the Carrier Dome

I have arrived at the Carrier Dome, and the students are already beginning to roll in.
Many are wearing 44 jerseys, which definitely has a proud history here — it was worn by Jim Brown, Floyd Little and Ernie Davis.
There is a big banner of Brown in the corner that says simply “Greatest Player Ever.”
It’s a little warm in here but not too bad, but everyone says it will heat up once all the fans get in.
The students are already chantinig “Let’s Go Orange,” and you at least have to admire their spirit considering a 5-18 record the past two years.
As I finish this up, the Syracuse players are running onto the field on their way to the locker room to get in uniform, most heading over to the student section to some loud cheers. The song greeting the team is the old Twisted Sister song “We’re Not Gonna Take It.”
HUSKIES COULD HAVE FACED BRENNAN TONIGHT: A reader passed along the note that UW could have been facing Colt Brennan tonight, instead of at the end of the season, if things had turned out a little differently.
This story details how Brennan was offered a scholarship by Syracuse coach Greg Robinson but the school president then forced Robinson to take the offer away due to Brennan’s legal problems.
PROGAMMING NOTE: I’ll try to keep updating the blog as events warrant. I also plan to try to do a running blog during the game, ala what Geoff Baker does for the Mariners, so we’ll see how that goes.
