Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Podcast: Hopkins Perceptions, Babers Recruiting Progress

John and Dan say nice things about Syracuse football and unfortunately bring up what's going wrong for the Orange basketball program.

USA Today

Remember when we were super positive about Syracuse Orange basketball and super negative about Syracuse Orange football? Those days are dead, it appears.

In this week's episode, John Cassillo and Dan Lyons talk about Syracuse's fast start on recruiting since Dino Babers arrived, talk Syracuse hoops fans in off a ledge, and of course, discuss beer. Some of the larger talking points:

  • Football recruiting's a new ball game under Babers; how have things changed?
  • Calm down on the whole panic about Mike Hopkins stuff, gang...
  • Explaining the Tampa-2 defense and how the Orange could use it
  • Michael Gbinije needs to take more shots, since no one else is hitting things
  • Prioritizing the Orange offense staying on the field could help its defense
  • Syracuse's (basketball) defense thrives on chaos... more of that, please?
  • Want more beer? Follow John and Dan on Untappd!

Plan accordingly: This podcast is a little over an hour long. We try to talk about basketball more, but football ends up taking over for upwards of 35-40 minutes (as always). Oh, and beer's there too.
