FakeNunes previews Syracuse Orange vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Let’s wreck Tech

NCAA Basketball: Clemson at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

We promised we’d do this for every Syracuse Orange ACC men’s basketball game and frankly we didn’t realize how much work it would be....but the Orange need us all to do our jobs so here we go.

Opponent: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Location: Atlanta, GA

Students: 26,369

The 2019 Fake Nunes Equation of Tumult (#FNET)

You wanted something more ridiculous than RPI well the NCAA gave you NET and we give you the FNET

Head Coach Bench Attire:

Josh Pastner dresses better than Brad Brownell but it’s pretty odd how he has a player standing behind him mimicing his movements.

NCAA Basketball: Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Jim Boeheim doesn’t need wacky props to accessorize his outfits.

Advantage: Syracuse

NBA 2K Playability:

Syracuse has a pretty poor offense. Georgia Tech is worse. Would you really play a video game with a team that struggles to put up points? Of course not.

Advantage: Syracuse

Basketball Program Hashtag:

#CuseMode vs #TogetherWeSwarm

It was a good run for CuseMode but it’s no match for a hashtag that references the nickname and does so in an aggressive manner.

Advantage: Georgia Tech

ACC Social Media Favorites:

Surprise suprise. With a little hint of something on his upper lip last night, Marek Dolezaj steps out of the shadows as a potential media darling. Will he embrace his own version of Rico? We shall see

Advantage: Syracuse

Boeheim Jacket Toss Meter

6.7/10 With the Duke Blue Devils looming on Monday night Jim’s patience with any sort of tomfoolery is going to be minimal. Syracuse better start strong or we might be seeing the jacket tossed aside in the 1st half.


This would be a good time for Syracuse to play a consistent 40 minute game. It’s going to be cold in the Cuse and the crowd will need something to get them revved up. This time it will be a three Buddy Boeheim 3s in the 1st half that does it. Syracuse 65-56
