"Arkansas is a tough place to play. I’m looking forward to it," said SU forward C.J. Fair. "I like playing in stuff like that."
Sean Keeley with the Syracuse SB Nation site Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician was kind enough to answer a few questions regarding the big coaching hire coming up this Friday. Basketball game! Basketball game. There's a basketball game Friday night against Syracuse.
The reason the Belk might opt for SU over Cincinnati is the Orange will move to the ACC, with Pittsburgh, in 2013 and the Bearcats, for now, remain locked in the Big East. The Belk Bowl people might figure that matching a future conference member against the No. 5 ACC team (possibly Duke or Virginia Tech, both 6-6) would be a better draw for a game in Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium.
League originals like St. John's and Georgetown are living in fear, attaching themselves to Big East football like a sucker fish on a shark, hoping to survive. It's a shortsighted strategy based on fear. Instead of forming a coalition of five -- think of five fingers becoming one fist -- and telling the Big East what to do, Villanova and Providence and the others are doing as they're told. How's that working out, Seton Hall?
A two-way end for the Orange during the 1960, ’61 and ’62 campaigns, he was chosen second overall in the 1963 AFL Draft (and awarded a $5,000 signing bonus) and became a nine-time Pro Bowler who played in 181 consecutive games for the San Diego Chargers and Washington Redskins. A member of SU’s All-Century Team as selected in 2000, he remains in the minds of many the best eligible offensive lineman not elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Next up is South Carolina at St. John's. The game is at 7:30 p.m. on ESPNU. Meanwhile, St. John's coach Steve Lavin, sounding a little like Nero on his fiddle, says Louisville's departure from the Big East will have little impact on St. John's.
It's another edition of Red on Roundball with Syracuse University assistant coach Adrian "Red'' Autry. In this video, Autry discusses how the Orange scouts an opponent.

Syracuse is Scott Steiner — A guy that has all the things Hulk Hogan loves — size, size and size — and since Hogan is always in Bischoff's ear, Steiner is going to get a shot to help carry the company along with Sid. Well, at least that's what Hogan wants everyone to think because in reality Hogan is really plotting another way he can become the organization's focal point. Like Sid, Steiner is touted as the future of WCW by those in command, but in reality they're both pushing 40 and will never really be the answer to compete with WWE.
The wheels of conference realignment continued spinning Wednesday, as Louisville announced its decision to move to the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2014. The Cardinals' departure furthered the destruction of the Big East Conference, especially in men's basketball.
A number of Syracuse University products will be in action for Team USA. Former Orangemen on the U.S. team include Mike Leveille of the the Rochester Rattlers; Steven Brooks of the Chesapeake Bayhawks; John Lade of the Rochester Rattlers; and former West Genesee and SU goalie John Galloway of the Rochester Rattlers.
