Happy Valentine's Day from Daily Onions

To Daily Onions loyal readers, random Google alert folks that have stumbled upon our site, and friends of re-Tweets and Facebook posts that clicked to see what we were all about:

We love you, and Happy Valentine's Day.

Rick Jackson hopes to deliver Valentines and a 'W' vs. WVU
I could think of no better way to spend Valentine's Day then by being with four of my favorite people (Bill Raftery, Jay Bilas and Sean McDonough and of course the First Lady of Daily Onions) for Big Monday. Even better, tonight's game features one of my loves, Syracuse basketball, against a team that is near and dear to the heart of many of my closest friends, West by God Virginia.

Hearts and cupids aside, Daily Onions is declaring this a "must win" for Syracuse. They've dropped three in a row at the Carrier Dome and have lost five of their last seven games. The Orange can't take the Mountaineers lightly. A scrappy WVU team will enjoy their return trip to the Dome, a place 11 months ago they beat Washington and upset Kentucky to advance to the Final Four. After WVU, the Cuse hosts an improved Rutgers team, before playing two on the road against Georgetown and Villanova. They finish the year at home against Big East winless, DePaul. Safely, I'd say Cuse goes 2-2 in that stretch, which means a win against WVU would hypothetically get them to 10 wins in the conference.

While we're at it, if Rick Jackson can get back on the double-double train, Kris Joseph can take more than 6 shots and Scoop can make better decisions, that will make this Valentine's Day even better.

Wishing you and your loved ones a happy V-tines Day,

Daily Onions

    You're not getting a Valentine from me this year.
