Welcome to the Finger Lakes! Our theme song:

In a town this size, there's no place to hide
Everywhere you go, you meet someone you know...
In a smokey bar, in the backseat of your car
In your own little house, someone's sure to find you out
What you do and what you think
What you eat and what you drink...

SI discovers SU

Winning at Louisville

This week's Sports Illustrated takes a break from Linsanity to look at Upstate New York's most successful organization, currently 26-1.  Michael Rosenberg covers everything from Melo to Bernie, so read the whole thing.  

From Coach Jim Boeheim:
Within the construct of the games, Boeheim is in complete control. Most college coaches call timeout, then huddle with their assistants to talk strategy before addressing the players. Boeheim leaves his assistants' brains unpicked.
"My job is to coach the game," he says. "To press if we're going to press, or change our zone, or trap in our zone, or which plays we're going to run, or who we're going to go to. That's my job. I've been doing this 36 years. Why would I want an assistant telling me what plays to run?"
Unpicked, indeed.  Keep up the good work.
