Time to Turn It on!

Well UVM, it's time to pull off another upset versus the Orangemen. Personally, I think the Cats deserved a higher seed than that seeing how they were able to knock off Rutgers from the Big East on the road as well as almost beating Cornell, the Ivy League champions in Drexel, and by knocking off Buffalo in Buffalo who were able to knock off Ohio University who are also in the tournament at a higher seed than Vermont.

The Catamounts will need to rekindle the magic of Taylor Coppenrath and TJ Sorrentine to march over Syracuse again. This time, though, it will be even tougher because a game in Buffalo is basically a home game for Syracuse as Buffalo is only just over 2 1/2 hours from Syracuse according to MapQuest. For college students, a 2 1/2 hour drive is nothing; some high school fans even travel that far. UVM on the other hand is just about 7 1/2 hours away from Buffalo; that's a much harder drive to make. All I know is I don't like this draw for UVM; they were so much better than a 16 seed who drew just about the worst possible matchup they could have. However, there has never been a 16 seed to upset a 1 seed... until 2010.
