#FakeNunes previews Syracuse vs. Boston College

The #OrangeEagle lives on in our hearts

NCAA Basketball: Boston College at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Syracuse Orange. Boston College Eagles. Jim Boeheim. Jim Christian. Truly a dream match-up for a 6:30 Wednesday night tip available only on ACC Network.

Opponent: Boston College Eagles

Location: Chestnut Hill, Mass

Students: 14,600 students who aren’t used to following the Celtics and Bruins before February

The 2019-20 Fake Nunes Equation of Tumult (#FNET)

You wanted something more ridiculous than RPI and the NCAA gave you NET. We give you more ridiculousness so we bring back the FNET metric.

Head Coach Bench Attire:

When you’re ass is squarely on the hot seat you don’t need the added pressure of a tie wrapped around your neck. Jim Christian’s trying his best to stay as comfortable as possible while knowing the AD who didn’t hire him is just waiting to drop the axe.

“Mike thank you again for inviting me to join #TeamNoTie”

We told you all about #JacketTossInception so now we need Jim to think of how much more efficient his tosses could be if he wasn’t wearing a tie.

Advantage: Boston College

NBA 2K Playability:

Saturday’s overtime just needed an NBA Jam “He’s on Fire!” to correctly convey what we saw in that five-minute stretch.

Advantage: Syracuse

Basketball Program Hashtag:

None vs #WeAreBC

Yes BC that is what you are. Factually accurate but very bland and generic and on brand.

Advantage: Boston College

ACC Social Media Favorites:

Without Nik Popovic in the lineup Marek Dolezaj and his blatant disregard for his own personal well-being earns the respect of #ACCTwitter

Advantage: Syracuse

Boeheim Jacket Toss Meter

NCAA Basketball: Georgia Tech at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

8.3/10 After a couple of weeks of thinking we knew what Jim was going to do he adjusted and used the extra session to get a rare road jacket toss. Now that he’s back in The Dome and knows he missed two previous opportunites to lock in a win, we say those of you behind the Orange bench need to beware of flying objects.

Wrestling Theme Song for this game

We turn to Massachusetts native John Cena for this one because with the firing of Steve Addazio, Jim Christian hopes BC AD Martin Jarmond can’t see him. It’s pretty clear the time is now for Christian to win some games because no amount of hustle, loyalty and respect will keep him from getting a 5-knuckle shuffle out of Chestnut Hill.


Hey did you know that Syracuse hasn’t won an ACC home game yet? Well guess what after Wednesday night you won’t be able to say that any longer this season.
