A previous Fan Fest in review or 1 reason to make your kid an offer he can't refuse | Carolina Orange
Watching the Orangemen practice was a revelation. We didn’t play football in my family as we were basketball players, pure and simple. This was all brand new to both of us as we watched Paul Pasqualoni, George DeLeone, and the rest of the coaches run a disciplined but spirited practice, likely devoid of some of the blue-er banter that was the norm (language sanitized for the protection of younger ears). We say some big hits and great catches. When practice was over we grabbed a drink as the players exited for Manley Field House.

Cohen: Fans should enjoy 1 more year of rivalries, historic matchups before Syracuse's move to ACC - Sports - The Daily Orange
Syracuse will officially enter the Atlantic Coast Conference on July 1, 2013, after agreeing to a $7.5 million buyout that allows SU to depart one year early. It leaves one last go-round in the league that built SU athletics. One final year in the conference that blessed its fans with Georgetown vs. Syracuse. One final season in Boeheim’s tenure as Big East headmaster. The time has come for Orange fans to peer into Onondaga Lake and cherish a reflection filled with John Thompson’s, Jim Calhoun’s and Lou Carnesecca’s.

Debating the impact of conference changes | College Soccer News
The impact of conference realignment on this upcoming season isn't going to be as significant as it will be perhaps in 2013, when programs like Pittsburgh and Syracuse hop over to the ACC. Major conferences aren't as involved in the movement as they could possibly be further down the road, as it's safe to assume that the merry-go-round continues to shuffle the teams.

Ranking the Big East's Basketball Coaches |
At the start of the 2011-12 season, Bob Knight and Mike Krzyzewski were the only coaches with 900 Division I wins. Boeheim should join them early in 2012-13. Like Krzyzewski, Boeheim is winning at as good a rate as he did earlier in his career. Syracuse’s 34 wins last season was a record for Boeheim, topping 31 wins in 1986-87. The Orange’s 17-1 mark in the Big East was also his career best.
