Syracuse Basketball Profile Photos: An Analysis

You know the basketball season is close when the official profile photos are updates for the new season. Such is now and it's only right that we over-analyze and read too much into them. Let's get to it.

The discussion has to begin with Brandon Triche, who is sporting a moha-...well, it's actually more of a fauxha-...well, I'm not exactly what sure what's going on up there.

On one hand, I appreciate Brandon picking up the wacky-haired torch left by Paul Harris ('fro) and Andy Rautins (fauxhawk). Someone on this team has to do it and I think it shows a keen leadership trait from Triche. On the other hand, all I keep thinking about is this.

Next up is Rick Jackson, who we heard had lost some weight in the offseason. I think it shows.

Compare it to this picture and its clear Rick's lost a lot of weight in the face. Here's to seeing a leaner, meaner Rick Jackson this year.

Scoop, sporting the trademark smile. In the words of the man himself, "ooo yea that's hot."

Joseph10web_medium

Did Kris Joseph get Bar Mitzvah'd over the summer? Cause he who was once a boy now looks a man.

Jones10web_medium

How do you spell Intensity? M-O-O-K-I-E-J-O-N-E-S.

Southerland10web_medium

Southerland too looks like he's shed some baby weight from last year. He looks wirey. How can I tell that from a photo? I don't know. I just feel it.

Riley10web_medium

I think Rick Jackson just yelled at DaShonte Riley for wearing his jersey in the photo. CHEER UP, DASHONTE! We think you're a integral part of the team and are a valuable asset to the community. Feel better?  No?  I give up...

Melo10web_medium

Alright, I'm officially on the Fab Melo bandwagon (not that I wasn't already).  But how can you hate this guy? I want to go buy him a sundae and watch him eat the whole thing and then buy him a toy. He's wonderful.

Waiters10web_medium

Dion Waiters is 18? Can we truly confirm this? Dude looks like he can definitely purchase alcohol legally.  Not that I'm inviting anyone to pry...

Fair10web_medium

C.J. Fair is 18? Can we truly confirm this? Dude looks like he isn't allowed to be inside a Chuck E. Cheese without adult supervision.  Not that I'm inviting anyone to pry...

Keita10web_medium

Baye Moussa Keita, I can't stay mad at you. Not that I ever was. But I'm just saying, with that punum...

Resavy10web_medium

Nicky Revasy, happy to be here.

Hart10web_medium

Nolan Hart, CLEARLY not happy to be here. Stop looking at me that way, Nolan!

Hoffman10web_medium

Griffin Hoffmann, extremely middle-of-the-road about being here.

Reese10web_medium

Brandon Reese, ready for another season of finding his way into the front of all photo ops.

Deremer10web_medium

Russ DeRemar, who should probably give back the #34 jersey to Matt Tomaszewski.

Whew, there we go. Get yours, Matt.
