    Well. Charlotte is undeniably a great spot overall. Its 2.5 hours from Duke, North Carolina, NC State, and Clemson. Its 3 hours from Virginia Tech, 4 hours from Georgia Tech, and 4.5 hours from Virginia. Makes the location drivable for half the conference. Syracuse doesn't play baseball, Boston College and Pittsburgh barely do, and the Florida teams can go pound sand.

    WOW, where have I been? I didn't realize that Syracuse does not field a baseball team. And they haven't since 1972. That's weird.

    Well, Pittsburgh basically doesn't field a baseball team either. They've been to the NCAA post-season 1 time in the last 50 years.

    But at least they do have a team. Syracuse doesn't.

    Have you checked the temperatures in that part of NY in March?? Even April? Syracuse could have like 10 home games a year and 40 road games....

    Not a problem. Way up farther north, the University of Maine Black Bears have fielded an intercollegiate baseball team since 1881.

    Lacrosse is more popular than baseball in Syracuse, outside of probably MLB. Generally speaking, best athletes play lax in spring.

    Actually I think it more likely that we don’t show up.
