    I have no animosity towards Syracuse, but why would anyone with other offers decide to go there? Not being prudish, but that is a damn cold winter

    That question comes up a lot from southern fan bases in regards to Michigan and other schools such as Syracuse. Obviously, the winters are not that big of an issue for some. I do a good bit of business in upper NY where people love where they live. I'm with you, and I wouldn't unless I had to.

    They think their dome is actually a big draw, somehow.

    Sounds like they’re getting the Tech Treatment.

    “We’ve been recruiting him for over two years. We were the first school to offer him.”

    I feel your pain, Cuse fans. But I can’t say I feel sorry. It’s nice to be on the other side of the stick for once.

    They get more snow annually than any other major U.S. city. I guess if you like cold and snow, Syracuse is the place to be.
    And property taxes, which are theft in every state, are outrageous up there. Just a little dinky house is $7K per year.

    Their winters vs our summers. Both brutal.

    It makes sense when a kid from a northern state chooses a cold area, or even a kid from the south choosing an elite program in a cold area. A 4-star kid from Florida choosing to play for Syracuse isn't going to happen very often though.

    I prefer 100 degree days to 30 degree days. 80 to 90 degrees is perfect.

    Should I go there are post that mebbe it is understandable that a young man with immense talent might prefer passion, intensity, juice, brotherhood, fun, and winning over a snowbank that pretends it is an orange grove?

    You get used to it on both sides. I’ve lived and worked in some pretty harsh winters and I wouldn’t do it until my elder years, but it isn’t too bad otherwise. Sometimes I miss stepping out into new fallen snow, but it is a fleeting feeling. Shoveling it until April isn’t ideal, but 80 degrees and no bugs in the summer is hard to beat.

    I missed that they won 10 games last year somehow. Coupla decent wins, especially the bowl game. Good for the conference if they can maintain as a solid program.
