When Syracuse has ample size and talent, wears its orange unis, and goes into its 2-3 zone, it becomes a giant, many-tentacled sea creature that takes on an air of frightful, suffocating inevitability.
I find myself simultaneously not enjoying the game and marveling at their ability to execute their system.

Buster Posey gets $167M, 9 year deal from SF Giants, not pitching money but not shabby either.
"Posey's agreement includes a full no-trade clause. Is the longest for a catcher and the largest in Giants history, surpassing Matt Cain's $127.5 million, six-year contract signed before the start of last season.
In addition, the deal is a record guarantee for a player with fewer than three years of major league service time more than doubling the $80 million, seven-year contract Rockies slugger Carlos Gonzalez received before the 2011 season. It also is a record guarantee for a player with fewer than four years of service time, topping the $151.45 million over 11 years Colorado's Todd Helton was assured in March 2001."

I'm going to need the next two days to recover from tonight's game. Michigan delivered a roller coaster of emotion tonight.

I grew up on the Michigan State side of the divide, but I have to give some respect to Michigan for their gutty win tonight.
