It’s the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 weekend! Hooray! While I suppose we’ll get our collective rooting power behind lone Big East rep Villanova this weekend, unfortunately the nation will be exposed to yet another horrible mind-numbing eye-gouging game featuring the Duke Blue Devils and the Syracuse Orange.

While some have suggested that rooting for Syracuse here might be a good thing as it would increase the chance of the decline of the Duke one and done era and perhaps open up some recruits for Georgetown in the next few years, that line of thinking is absolutely preposterous.

Let me make this clear: NEVER ROOT FOR SYRACUSE EVER. NEVER DAMMIT NEVER.

If this doesn’t make you puke, nothing will:

On the flip side, this Loyola-Chicago thing is all sorts of awesome.
