Syracuse Orange football fans probably don’t need a lot of incentive to get excited thinking about the 2019 season. But if they do, the football program has something for you. Over the last month we’ve noticed that the recruiting department has started using a new hashtag on Twitter.
In case you thought the Orange were telling recruits to throw on some Imagine Dragons, please stop now and give us 10 pushups because you clearly haven’t been paying attention.
Okay, now that you’re back, let’s do a little deeper dive into #JUICEDUP shall we. First let’s commend football on realizing that you can only use a trendy hashtag for a limited amount of time before it becomes stale — are you listening Syracuse basketball? Nothing’s ever been #CuseMode. We don’t need to keep reminding people that #OrangeistheNewFast because the fast part isn’t new anymore and after last season, Syracuse is looking to take that next step in the program’s progression. #JUICEDUP sends the message that the Orange are looking for that extra push to get there.
So instead, we’ve got ourselves a nice citrus-themed phrase that encapsulates the feeling of many football fans after the 2018 season. You aren’t just patiently waiting for the Orange to kick off again, you’re at home buying your season tickets while watching Tommy DeVito highlights and slapping yourself in the face with your Camping World Bowl champions merchandise.
Are you starting to feel #JUICEDUP yet? How about a tall glass of Vitamin C(isco)?
Still not enough juice? Well pour yourself a tall glass of this freshly squeezed goodness and it should hold you over until next weekend’s Spring game.
