'Cuse Classics: 'Air Gait' makes a spectacular debut as Syracuse edges Penn in national semifinals (1988) |
The first lacrosse game in the CC spotlight is Syracuse's dramatic, 11-10 win over Penn in the Division I lacrosse semifinals on May 28, 1988. The game is noteworthy for a couple reasons -- Paul Gait's winning goal with just three seconds on the clock, and brother Gary Gait introducing his spectacular "Air Gait" shot.

Fab Melo & the Celtics: The Unrealized Potential of the Syracuse Big Man : Orange Fizz
Plenty of mock drafts have him going to the Celtics, who hold the 21st and 22nd picks. Personally, that seems like a near certainty at this point. The C’s have buckets of cash coming free as Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett’s contracts are up, but after his late season resurgence Danny Ainge is likely to resign KG if he still wants to play. The largest hole all season for Boston was a lack of center, and while Chris Kaman or another free agent pivot might be decent options, the C’s would rather a cost-effective player if they have to spend on Garnett and a swingman off the bench.

Syracuse University women's lacrosse player Michelle Tumolo named Attacker of the Year |

#71 Syracuse Orange: College Football 77 in 77
There are too many issues in the secondary, linebackers and running back for this team to go bowling. They’ll probably finish in the 3-9 to 5-7 range and close to the Big East basement. The schedule is tougher than usual this year- obviously that doesn’t help things.

Blazers GM denies making Syracuse star Dion Waiters an NBA draft promise |
"I got the job on a Tuesday, and by the time I landed in Chicago the next day (for the predraft camp), I had convinced an owner (to pick a prospect), a player to shut down his workouts ... I mean, I hadn't even talked to my scouts yet," Neil Olshey told

Big East Football: Head Coaches Rankings
Yes, the eight wins in 2010 were the most for Syracuse since 2001. But four- and five-win seasons are not going to cut it for the Orange, who soon will be moving up in the world against tougher competition in the ACC. Marrone is going to have to show some consistent results if he plans to be around for that transition.

Nation Of Orange - Devan Carter Talks Syracuse Commitment
"I decided on Syracuse because of the coaches and the relationship I developed with my recruiter Tyrone Wheatley," he told us. "Also, it is close to my home, and I like their football program. On top of all that, Syracuse is a good school."

The Fallacy of the Foul Out. | Bleeding Orange
I came across a blog post this morning touting the elimination of foul-outs in basketball. It’s an interesting argument, especially when you consider that some of the game’s historical heavyweights have supported the idea at various times. The idea that a player/team can penalized twice for a single, relatively minor infraction is borderline ludicrous. It’s downright un-American.

Big East Football Forum: Critiquing Athlon's 2012 Predictions - Big East Coast Bias
Syracuse has added some great new talent and has a veteran quarterback too. They have a tough nonconference schedule though. Does that help or hurt them in Big East play?

Nation Of Orange - Syracuse's Non-Conference Schedule Should Slience Critics
So if national college basketball experts start ripping on Syracuse for their schedule this season, it is simply an uninformed comment. The Orange play three tough opponents, none of which take place at the Carrier Dome.
