Syracuse fans have plenty of reasons to be merry. They have a team as deep and talented as any in the country, a team that's thus far conquered a difficult schedule with relative ease. The Orange just beat reborn rival Georgetown on Monday night in front of a raucous home crowd. And, after Kentucky's loss to South Carolina Tuesday night, the road is paved for Syracuse to be your new No. 1 come Monday.
This merriment and general joy extends to Jim Boeheim, who took the opportunity after Monday's win over Georgetown to crack a few sly jokes. (Go straight to the video here.) For as deadly serious as Boeheim so often is, it's easy to forget he's got quite the sense of humor. The switch is fully on here.
