The Syracuse Orange are scheduled to play the Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday, in an Elite 8 match-up between the one and two seeds in the East Region of the 2012 NCAA Tournament. The winner will advance to the Final Four in New Orleans.
Our wonderful Syracuse blog, Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician, is prepping Syracuse fans for the big game, covering every possible angle, including a 'Hater's Guide to Ohio State':
Sure we consider ourselves a better program than Ohio State, but did you know that they've been to 10 Final Fours? And that they hold a 4-2 advantage over us head-to-head (the most recent game -- a 2007 neutral-site loss)? The funny part is, just two of those Final Four trips are S.B. (Since Boeheim) and we all know that college basketball really didn't exist prior to Jimmy's arrival as head coach at Syracuse.
