Mid-Major?

Wow! This is why "big" schools don't play "mid-majors" during the regular season. The top dogs claim they are all high and mighty and then stuff likes this happens every year. When games like this happen, sports writers should be reminded not to keep the "small guys" out of the rankings.

It's one game

It just means they were better tonight. If they play 10 times syracuse wins 8 or 9 games

one game

yep. too bad that one game they lost (tonight) out of your 8 or 9 is the one that really counts. scoreboard.

Too bad

I watched the game on TV, and saw many, many, many empty seats. Too bad the NCAA wants $$$ for tickets. Really, even upperbowl seats were hundreds of dollars. No wonder why people didn't go. They can go see better players play when the Jazz play another NBA team at ESA, and do it for about 1/4 as much as the NCAA wants for seats.

Yea, YbU had their shot at the “Big Boys” and they BLEW IT! 95% of the time the national media gets it right

Re: Too Bad

Over 17,000 in attendance. Remember, not every ticket holder watched both games. Many Syracuse fans did not stay for the second game and many K-State fans didn't come until the second game. It is always a cost/benefit things and 17,000 fans was not bad.

Re: Too Bad

I was at the game. Any lower bowl seats you could see empty on TV were K-State seats and the fans hadn't come in yet. The entire lower bowl and most of the upper bowl was full for the second game. There were more than 17,000 in attendance. My understanding is that the unsold seats were allotted to the participating schools but not released to the general public until early this week.

The party is over

Butler will be done next round, nice run but in the end the big boys will take it.
