Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Podcast: Syracuse vs. Virginia preview

John and Dan return from their respective vacations to talk Orange hoops and some football recruiting.

John and Dan were away for a couple weeks, so there’s a lot of ground to cover on this episode — especially for the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team, which lost just an hour before recording on Wednesday, and now could really use a resume-boosting victory.

In this installment, we get into what went wrong vs. Georgia Tech, the challenge vs. Virginia, some football recruiting and beer. The larger topics:

  • How many “big” wins does Syracuse still need to be a true at-large contender?
  • The impact of having (basically) just two guards available
  • The impact of Kirk Martin and SU’s look toward Texas for talent
  • What to expect for Orange football recruiting next week
  • The Italian beer scene is better than you’d expect going in
  • Tempo, efficiency and why Syracuse’s offense can’t find either this year
  • Want more beer? Follow John and Dan on Untappd

Plan accordingly: This week’s podcast runs just under an hour. We spend the first half on basketball, and the second half largely on football.
