Syracuse Daily Links - Big East Schedule's 'Epic Flaw'

Big East slate released with an epic flaw -
When it comes to no-brainer sellouts and easy TV draws, there are certain things that shouldn't be messed with. No matter how exciting neo-rivalry Syracuse-UConn is, Orange fans want two cracks, not one, at stifling Hoya Paranoia. SU fans aren't comforted by the fact they'll get two gimme games against Providence, since it means they sacrifice a game in Washington, D.C., where plenty of Syracuse alumni are based. (Syracuse's other two-gamers are against Connecticut and Louisville.)

Georgetown basketball plays Syracuse just once, on the road, in 2011-12 season - The Washington Post
Syracuse’s visit to Verizon Center is easily the most anticipated game of the regular season for Hoyas fans and the legion of Orange supporters living in the Washington area.

Big East position rankings: Running back - Big East Blog - ESPN
5. Syracuse. The Orange lose Delone Carter and his 1,233 yards. But Antwon Bailey is back and ready to assume the starting job. Bailey had 554 yards last season, but he is not the power back Carter was. Prince Tyson Gulley is second on the depth chart, and there are others who could contribute: Steven Rene, Jerome Smith, Mario Tull and maybe even freshman Greg Tobias. There also is freshman Adonis Ameen-Moore, a bruiser with speed.

What to make of Syracuse’s hiring of Steve Scarnecchia? Sink your teeth into this – Daily Orange Blogs
What are your thoughts on Marrone giving a man like Scarnecchia a third chance? Does it show more character in Marrone, or does it go against what he has preached before and decisions he has made regarding the much-noted mass-dismissal of players from the program in the past three years.

Johnson averaged nine points, three rebounds and almost two assists as a rookie last year. The fourth overall pick set a franchise record for 3-pointers made by a rookie with 103. With the addition of forward Derrick Williams, Johnson is going to be counted on heavily at shooting guard.
