Agree, just have "St. John's" on the baseline. We are not New York's team simply by saying we are. We have to earn it.


Agree Las Vegan. It must be earned to be genuine, but to have it and play up to it, is a ‘brand-building’ honor that will become an ingrained legacy in th minds of players and fans.
But you’re right, it’s worthless and embarrassing without success.

Would you feel the same way if 'Cuse beat us to it? :unsure:

the court is not bad but could be better. I wonder if they are going to do the same thing for the court at MSG.

Syracuse already beat us to it. We didn't like it when they proclaimed it. SJU is physically in nyc, unlike Syracuse or Conn., but we have no more right to claim "We are New York's Team," than DePaul can claim Chicago. Right now Loyola is Chicago's team. They earned it.

It cannot hurt so let’s do it and do it now. To hell w Syracuse et al.
Slap it in Alumni Hall and MSG:
New York’s Team! In beautiful bold letters:
NEW YORK’S TEAM!!!
And SHU can grow into that premier role - imo likely to happen with progress this year - needless to say - all the more likely w Mr. Heron on the court.
We can become the Gonzaga of the East - long overdo.
Go Storm!

We do at least have a winning streak vs Syracuse don't we?

Syracuse has New York State's College Team on the walls behind the goal posts on each side of the field. They also have it in electric signs in the corners. I want to vomit, every time my eyes cross it at football games.

Exactly ... but unlike Syracuse, which is 250 miles from New York City, Loyola is actually in Chicago, hence its claim would make sense. However, I'm quite willing to concede that 'Cuse is Upstate New York's team ... but not NYC's team, as implied.

The court at MSG games is horrible... always seems like Kinicks are playing that same night, so they just slap a few stickers on the floor and the royal blue and red look like total mismatches.
