2013-14 Orange Eagle Trophy: Syracuse Way Out In Front, 25-9

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Otto and the Orange have a commanding 25-9 lead in this year's Orange Eagle competition.

After jumping out to an early 9-3 lead in the Orange Eagle -- BC Interruption and Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician's year-long competition for Northeast athletics supremacy -- the bad guys have rattled off 22 straight points to take a commanding 25-9 lead heading into tonight's men's basketball matchup.

This thing ... is basically over, sadly.

In fact, the only thing really keeping BC in this thing is the fact that the OE Rules Committee decreased the points awarded to the winning football team from 10 to 6. Boston College's margin of error the rest of the way is ever so small. Without factoring in bonus points, the Eagles would have to take approximately seven of the nine head-to-head matchups to draw within striking distance of 'Cuse, and with contests remaining in men's basketball and softball ...

So get ready for TNIAAM editor Sean Keeley taking home this year's Orange Eagle hardware and Shiva Otto blasting all year long; boasting of Northeast college athletics supremacy. Me? Well I can look forward to taking home the equivalent of The Sacko Bowl Trophy / The Ruxin, which, if I had my way, would be a bronze's statue of Jim Boeheim knuckle deep in his nostril.

Pick a winner, Jim.

So whaddaya say, Eagles? Let's at least make this respectable, shall we? A total of three points are on the line tonight as the Eagles take on the #2 ranked Syracuse Orange at Conte Forum. Go Eagles! Beat 'Cuse!
