'Cuse fan taunts Hoyas in victory

In case you were feeling unsure about whether to support Georgetown this year, this video from a Syracuse fan celebrating Monday night's win ought to do the trick. There's a bit of naughty language, so I've been asked to link to it rather than embed it, but there's no chance that you could watch this and not immediately root for the Hoyas to beat Syracuse by 380 next time they meet.

Here's a video I'm allowed to embed. I saw it over the weekend, but forgot about it until the George Mason Basketball Blog reminded me. It concerns four Mason sophomores, the guys who wore superhero costumes to the preseason dunk contest, who refer to each other as KRAM, based on their initials.

"It had a ring to it and we just stuck with it," Ryan Pearson told Jill Sorenson.

"First day of practice we told everybody that we wanted everybody to call us by KRAM and stuff," Andre Cornelius added.

"Definitely the players engineered the KRAM moniker," Jim Larranaga said. "I mean, I don't think of things like that."

In other college basketball news....

* Reader Ryan C sent me this t-shirt that several Georgetown students were wearing during the Rutgers game, a full week before the Blue Devils come to town. Yet another possible reason local fans can mobilize behind the Hoyas.

* I've been meaning to link to this fabulous student column from the James Madison paper, concerning the hot dog incident. It has a photo of the hot dog on the floor, about 17 hot dog puns, and this sentence:

The true wiener in the Convocation Center wasn't the six-inch pork link scattered on the hardwood, but the JMU-clad halfwit who chucked it from about 30 rows up.

Also this quote: "I've never seen anyone throw a hot dog on the court," senior guard Pierre Curtis said. "We were laughing because, I mean, we just knew we were getting that free throw back. And then we found out it was one of our fans, and we weren't laughing anymore."

* George Mason and VCU are having some sort of competition to see which school can attract the most Facebook fans before they play in early February.

* UDC played several minutes of a recent game using only four players, after their fifth of five active players got injured. "I don't know what to tell you about that, brother. I really don't know," UDC assistant and former Terps guard Terrell Stokes told The Great Dave McKenna after that game.

That was almost as great as that "this is why you suck" video from the UNC fans, but not as mean to ugly Duke girls.

I don't quite buy that logic on Syracuse Dan. It's like saying Coach K saves kittens so I should totally root (sp?) for Duke in the next Duke/UNC game. Not gonna happen.

But Coach K eats kittens. After beating them remorslessly while calling them names it would be inappropriate to repeat in this forum, that is.

We'll see who is talking when it comes to math, but I have to say that they played well and defende even better.

Terp fans made "This is Why You Suck" video, not Tarheel fans. UNC-Duke rivalry is based on mutual respect, UMD-Duke rivalry is based on hatred and elitism.
