While everyone is still buzzing about the Syracuse Orange football program’s 4-0 start — rightfully so — basketball season is rapidly approaching. Jim Boeheim’s team will host its first official practice today and the team will get out to a relatively early start this year as the first non-exhibition game will take place on Nov. 6 against Eastern Washington.
With all the preseason hype surrounding this team in the wake of a Sweet 16 run and with five returning starters in the fold, we wanted to turn it over to you guys and ask what you’d desire most from basketball coverage moving forward. Earlier in the year we were able to survey and in turn we brought back daily links, so the same idea applies here.
Syracuse certainly has the potential to be a top-25 team nationally for the duration of the 2018-2019 college basketball season, which represents a tremendous opportunity for the team, us here at TNIAAM and the greater Syracuse community.
This will mark my fourth season (getting old) on basketball coverage and along with the help of John and the younger guys Andrew and Bobby, we’re eager to take basketball content to new heights this season. We’ll have the traditional coverage we’ve always had here, viz., recaps, polls, predictions, takeaways and Q&A’s and of course, jokes and garbage amongst other storylines as they come about. We want to focus on what’s worked and continue to nurture and build upon the community that Sean built here while also tying in some new elements.
For me personally, I’ll have a few new things coming through the pipeline this season. One of those will be a stat of the week where we bring an interesting stat to the spotlight that otherwise might not have been so obvious, amongst other things.
But what else would you like to see covered more in depth? Are there any particular angles or storylines you’d like to be followed? Maybe you just want to know what Marek Dolezaj’s favorite pizza topping is? Perhaps there’s a void that you think needs filling?
Let us know in the comment section below and if we think it’s reasonable and something we can cover well, we’ll do our best to appease where appetite is the strongest.
