Some initial thoughts...

  • As usual, and unlike SU Football, we’re on national TV a lot. Syracuse has 10 games scheduled for ESPN or ESPN2, five on ESPNU, five on the ACC Network, and five on ACC Extra. CBS also has one of the Louisville games.
  • Toughest stretch is probably the close of the season. From mid-Feb to March we get at Pitt, Louisville twice, Duke, and GT twice. That’s a lot of high profile and road contests.
  • Syracuse vs. Duke on a Wednesday isn’t as exciting as a Monday or weekend tilt but they can’t all be that. SU still has plenty of great games on Big Monday or in primetime elsewhere. That said, also a lot of Nooners in there.
