Apologies to Donovan McNabb, Ernie Davis and Jim Brown, but football isn't the first thing you associate with Syracuse University. It's always been a basketball school, with a football team that's usually just happy to finish over .500 and make a bowl game each season.
Then again, the Orange got their biggest win in program history last Friday night when they upset No. 2 ranked Clemson, 27-24 at the Carrier Dome. It was a hell of a game, and scene to watch on TV, and we can only imagine what it was like in person. Or, you could watch this awesome, virtual reality experience of the game shot by a fan in 360 degrees, complete with Dino Babers epic postgame speech in the locker room:
Any excuse to watch that locker room party again is a good excuse in my book, but the rest of the video is pretty damn cool too. Last Friday morning, most of us saw Clemson vs. Syracuse on the schedule and thought nothing of it. Fast forward four days later and we're still talking about it, whether it be about Babers' postgame speech, this video or Dabo Swinney getting all kinds of classy on us. Syracuse-Clemson! The epic battle we'll remember for years to come, who woulda thought.
