I know from looking at Orangehoops.org - Ive just got to give RL Young a TON of credit for this site. Sports are all about statistics...unless you have a memory of watching the game, they are pretty much all the games and players leave behind in the public record. And he has done an amazing job compiling them. The site isnt some whiz-bang Flash driven spectacle, it cuts right to the chase and provides interesting statistics for Syracuse basketball from 1900-2011, including profiles for almost every player who has suited up for the Orange. If you haven't been there, block off 4 hours in your Outlook calendar for a "review session", because its addictive if you're a Syracuse sports fan.
After TNIAAM, OrangeHoops.org is my favorite SU sports web site. I love the other blogs, (Orange44, The Juice, Orange Fizz) dont get me wrong, but these two sites are the ones I spend most of my time at. My only question is: why haven't we stepped up and created a commensurate site for Orange Football?
A football version of this would require even more dedication, since there are a lot more players and a lot more statistics. But! I would love to see it. I keep seeing things like "Delone Carter moved up to #3 in the career rushing list for Syracuse" or "Ryan Nassib has almost reached Troy Nunes 4th place record of TD passes" Where does one get these stats now? They must be pretty hard to find in a lot of cases. I just don't know I guess.
Is there anyone out there willing to take on the task of helping create this site? I could donate research time, domain registration, and server space, but I would need tons and tons of help.
I feel like it would be the monumental task that the Nunes faithful would excel at, and could be a wonderful companion site to nunesmagician.com, just like orangehoops.org is.
