As all good Hoyas fans should know by now, the Georgetown-Syracuse rivalry lives on. In the 2015-2016 season, the teams will commence a four-year home-and-home series with the first game at the Verizon Center. Twitter quickly exploded with the news as fans from both sides weighed in on one of the most famed rivalries in college hoop’s reemergence. Here, we collected a few of the best reactions.
Most fans expressed relief that the rivalry will continue:

@hoyasbuzztap Good to see the Hoyas renew series with Orange. Great rivalry when two schools were both in the Big East.

Life plans were even made in reaction:

But some fans lamented that it just wouldn’t be the same:
Glad to see Syracuse and Georgetown will be playing each other, but it won't be the same with both teams in different conferences.

Glad to see Syracuse and Georgetown will be getting back together again. Not sure what the rivalry will feel like in a few years.
