Otto The Orange Is Out

Otto The Orange Syracuse Basketball

The bad news doesn’t stop at Jim Boeheim for the penalties levied by the NCAA last week. More fallout as now the self-imposed postseason ban has even included Otto the Orange, the team mascot:

The Atlantic Coast Conference held its annual mascot basketball game at halftime of the North Carolina-Louisville quarterfinal Thursday. Fourteen of the ACC’s 15 mascots played — from Mr. Wuf of NC State to Rameses of North Carolina to Sebastian the Ibis of Miami.

But no Otto.
