GU vs. the Orange... what is happening?

The line for the GU-Syracuse game has been released and the Zags are 7.5 point underdogs. What does that mean? Well nobody is expecting a miracle at midnight a la Cinderella, but hey...

Many Zag fans think that if GU were to play a 1-seed, than Syracuse would be the easiest draw. Hence there is some optimism that the Bulldogs could pull off the upset. If they were to do it, it would be one of the biggest signature wins in the school's history. Is it possible? Yes, but is it likely?

This team has been up and down all season, evident by their losses in the WCC to lesser teams, and that's a sign of their youth and inexperience. So would it be smart to say that maybe they don't realize how monumental a task it will be to defeat Syracuse? Is that a good thing? So many questions, and I can't say if I expect this to be a competitive game or a blowout. It really could go either way and it wouldn't surprise me at all.

Keep in mind that this is in Buffalo, and Syracuse will have a definite home-court advantage. And did anyone notice that the Zags had no bench points in their win over FSU? That is not exactly a welcoming stat.
