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:

Danny Manning didn’t become the NBA All-Star many predicted but he had a long NBA career so I don’t know how to explain what he’s doing with his sideline wardrobe. Blame it on the 90s I guess.

NCAA Basketball: Wake Forest at Clemson Dawson Powers-USA TODAY Sports

Advantage: Syracuse because when you’re as tall as Manning your look needs to be understated

NBA 2K Playability:

If you watched Tyus Battle against UNC then you know that this one’s really easy.

Advantage: Syracuse

Basketball Program Hashtag:

#CuseMode vs #GoDeacs

Once again a school keeps it simple with their hashtag and we reward them for it.

Advantage: Wake Forest

ACC Social Media Favorites:

Shocking for all of us here at the TNIAAM Fake Nunes Department as we actually found a game where Syracuse is more likable than their opponent

Advantage: Syracuse

5.2/10 Since this is a road game the odds are against Jim tossing his coat but with a 6-2 record he might play to the numbers if Syracuse has a second-half lead.


We’ve reached March and now we think this is as close to a “must-win” game as Syracuse will have before the post-season. The Orange pull together and leave Winston-Salem with a win and are back in the Cuse in time to get Wegmans subs for dinner.
