Huge Recruiting Win for Marrone: 3-Star DL Josh Manley Picks Syracuse : Orange Fizz
This is an enormous late signing for the Orange. Many felt the Georgia native would choose to stay closer to home and pick Georgia Tech or another southeastern school like Virginia or NC State. He also had offers from Purdue and Mississippi State. Not only is he a terrific talent who spurned other BCS programs, but he fills a position of need.

Metro - Syracuse stars reflect on Sixers, Iverson
"I’m a big Sixers fan, too, and watching A.I. was amazing," Waiters said. "I have so many friends here in Philly, but I always wanted to go play for Syracuse in the Carrier Dome with all those thousands of people watching.

Syracuse Orange Basketball - Bernie Fine Allegations: After All the Twists and Turns, We're Back to the Beginning
So where do we go from here? Do these developments change the public perception of Davis' and Lang's credibility? Their credibility has been questioned already. The most responsible action that fans and the public can take is to wait for the investigation to be complete, wait for the defamation lawsuit to finish, and see where things stand at that point. Given these latest developments, that seems to be the prudent response.

Big East Basketball 1.15.12: What Fans Learned Saturday - SB Nation New York
Everybody knows how talented sophomore guards Jeremy Lamb and Napier are, but add the inside presence of Oriakhi and Drummond -- who's made an early-game transition layup against the Irish was meaningless but very impressive -- this is a very dangerous team, especially against the No. 1-ranked Syracuse Orange.
