I'm sure I'm not the only one who noticed this last night watching the game. We have new walk-ons! And while it's always fun to root on the guys who see little playing time one thing stuck out. GRIFFIN HAWKMAN. Going into this season my favorite walk-on was obviously Brandon Reese, since he was given a scholarship for this year, technically he's longer eligible for that title, but no worries because we have Hawkman! or Hawkmen? To be honest with you I was shocked when he entered the game. Who is this mystery basketball player? He had no name on his Jersey and SuAthletics.com has no record of him. But as soon as I heard the name and saw him, I knew a new Syracuse legend has arrived. We need to assemble all of our resources and find out anything we can about him... where is he from? how did he end up on the team? Is he actually just an actor preparing for a role in High School Musical 4: The college years? Does his fauxhawk compete with Andy Rautins? Does his name compete with Brandon Triche for the title of team Hawk? ..........We need answers!
UPDATE: Looked at the boxscore, his name is actually Hoffman, heard Hawkman on the broadcast last night, maybe he should consider a name change
