I’m adding this season’s come-from-behind wins over South Florida and Missouri to my list of most memorable Syracuse football games. That this season isn’t quite over is the big surprise. I had figured the Orange for three wins . . . maybe four, maybe even two. However, my favorite game of the season was the Kent State win over Rutgers.

22. Syracuse's James Southerland will be the best sixth man in the country As long as Jim Boeheim keeps bringing him off the bench, which seems like a good bet. He's an energy guy who brings a lot of offense into the game, and he's capable of getting hot from outside. He's a reliable double-digit scoring threat who can also rebound and block shots. He also clucks like a chicken to get the managers to pass him the ball in the pregame shootaround, and no, that is not a joke. It is, however, one of the strangest things I've ever seen on a basketball court.
