Syracuse Daily Links - So Much For Being Overrated

Overrated no longer | The Juice Online
Recently, this team has shown no signs the normal weak spots Syracuse teams struggle with. Bad free throw shooting? The Orange made 18 of 24 last night. Poor 3-point shooting? Knocked down five of 12. Careless with the ball? Just nine turnovers in a game in which the team scored 93 points.

SU-Drexel Recap: The Sunny Side |
If you follow the old cliche' that one season just ended and "the second season" is about to begin, then the first season ended about as well as you could expect for this Orange team.

Three Idiots on Sports: Syracuse - Drexel Quick Takes
The Orange put together a 59 point second half, which was really impressive considering that they were playing 5 on 6 the whole game -- because Drexel coach Bruiser Flint spent more time walking around the court than the entire SU team combined.

Indeed, here is a club that is unbeaten, ranked fifth in the nation and has won eight times by double figures.

Here is a club that will be favored in each of its next five starts and could land in Pittsburgh on Jan. 17 at 18-0.

New Era Pinstripe Bowl: Syracuse Orange, From Bank One Ballpark To Yankee Stadium - SB Nation New York
It's been almost a decade since the Orange actually had a football program that received national attention. That season (2001), Syracuse, ironically, beat Kansas State in the Bowl to cap a 10-3 campaign which featured the Orangemen finishing No. 14 in both the AP and Coaches' Polls and closing their 15th straight winning season. A lot has happened to each program since that game in Phoenix, AZ.

Should Fab Melo Shut It Down Until He’s Healthy? : Orange Fizz – Syracuse Recruiting, Sports Rumors, Podcasts, Student Life
Fab has told me it’s just slightly larger than a microtear (or what often happens from lifting weights). In a microtear, the muscle is slightly damaged, but will grow back and repair itself – thus leading to muscle growth. That reparation of the muscle is the soreness one feels after lifting weights. Fab has a slightly bigger tear, he says. " WHEN Flips from Sports to Urban… More Flips Coming?
Shortly after 3:00pm today, Clear Channel ended the sports format on WHEN and replaced it with a simulcast of Power 106.9 (WPHR).

Today's Greatest Syracuse Fan is Ruby. Take note, those growing an Orange...this is how it should look.
