Lt. Aldo Raine of¬†“Inglourious Basterds” had a simple message to his foes:
“We in the killin’ Nazi business. And cousin, business is a-boomin’.”
Well, after a win over Marquette in front of a class of 2011 stud, the Per’fesser might have a line of his own for Buzz Williams, JT 3, Jay Wright, and anyone else who wants to wander up to CNY.
“We in the recruit nabbin’ business. And coaches, we’re kicking your ass at it.”
The Post Standard’s Mike Waters tweeted that recruit Trevor Cooney attended the game on Saturday. The Fizz caught up¬†Cooney for an October FizzCast:
“If I was to have a list, maybe (Syracuse) would be at the top of the list, but as of right now I really don’t have a list.”
Top-5 ranking? Check. Win over gritty Marquette team? Check. 27,000+ in the Dome? Check. How couldn’t the Orange have vaulted to the top of his list?
Now comes the opportunity for a real recruiting tour-de force. Beat Georgetown, most hated rival and Big East contender, on ESPN, in front of another packed Dome.
Even for those recruits not sitting courtside at the Dome, everyone watching the World Wide Leader will see what’s going on.
The Fizz will be along press row tonight, getting a free meal via the media spread, and I suppose doing duties for WAER. Look for tweets from theofficial Fizz Twitter page.
It’s a good time to be an SU fan, and just as solid to be Mike Hopkins or Rob Murphy on the trail. Business is a-boomin’.
