Post-Standard football writer Nolan Weidner went on the air Monday afternoon with The Score's Brent Axe to talk about his impressions of the Orange.

2012 Nike Hoop Summit: Top 5 Prospects From The Weekend In Portland -
Noel impressed by virtue of the fact that he boasts excellent coordination for a player with 6'11 height and a 7'4 wingspan. His presence intimidated opponents from attacking the paint and attempting shots in traffic during a Friday scrimmage and Saturday's exhibition.

This team had excellent chemistry — they had to, in order to excel at their brand of "ten starters but no stars" basketball.

Hell, he was the Big East Defensive Player of the Year. You don’t get to that level by being lazy.

Syracuse Orange Basketball - Nine Years Ago, College Basketball Was Tinted Orange
Saturday April 7th was the nine year anniversary of Syracuse's only national title to date (assuming of course you aren't including those Helm's national titles from the early 1900's). Hakim Warrick's acrobatic block sealed the Orange's fate as national champs.

This time I answer questions about Nerlens Noel (of course), SU in the ACC, Brandon Triche's chances to become the all-time winningest player in SU history, the best chef on Top Chef and what my favorite shade of orange is.
