Morning Headlines: Syracuse-UConn
Most mornings, we'll lead off the day with some AM headlines -- but not your traditional ones. Rather we'll focus on one game or story and write headlines that are completely inconsequential and insignificant to the outcome of the game. We'll give a few examples and then you'll play in the comments. Best headline (read: the one that makes us laugh the hardest) will get a shoutout in this space the next day. We'll provide the box score for the game as that can lend itself to plenty of content. Let's have some fun. The more insignificant, the better!
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!? ALL THEY WANTED TO DO WAS GO TO BED! IT'S FUCKING 1:22 IN THE MORNING! SEAN MCDONOUGH IS GOING TO SLEEP FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES!
I can't think of a crazier, more epic game that last night's Big East quarterfinal. Six OTs. INSANE! The only thing that would have made it more exciting was if it were a small-conference championship game or a game between two bubble teams fighting for their tournament lives. This essentially was a seeding game, with not all that much on the line. BUT THEY JUST WANT TO GO HOME! Meanwhile, West Virginia will get a Syracuse team that took over 100 shots Thursday, played nearly an extra game and has legs that resemble those of Gumby.
If this isn't March Madness, what is?
Wednesday's winner: Anonymous with: Alou: 'I'm proud of the way our guys showed up for the big game. We lost to a great team tonight. We lost to Goliath.'
[Syracuse-UConn box score].
-Orange pull away late to upset Huskies
-Boeheim: 'West Virginia will give us all we can handle'
-Upset in Big East tournament not thought to shake up seeding too much
Holy shit. Take a breath. Now go write some headlines.
