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

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team has already avenged one home loss to a Virginia school. Can they do it again in Blacksburg this Saturday?

Location: Blacksburg, Va.

Students: 34,131 students who laughing and pointing at Virginia losing three straight games

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:

Mike Young strolled into the Dome shed his jacket, rolled up his sleeves and watched his team rally late for the win.

Jim Boeheim’s got the opportunity to go #TeamNoTie and one-up Young on Saturday....yeah right.

Advantage: Virginia Tech

NBA 2K Playability:

After watching the first game, we still say skip to 2K Playground and let Landers Nolley II and Elijah Hughes go one on one. Trust me it will be much more fun to watch.

Advantage: Syracuse

Basketball Program Hashtag:

None vs #StonebyStone

Nothing changes here except pointing out that Virginia Tech took that stone by stone literally the first 30 minutes in Syracuse as they threw up misses from deep like they were flinging Hokie Stone instead of a basketball

Advantage: Virginia Tech

ACC Social Media Favorites:

Marek Dolezaj throwing his body around with no regard for human life is building some buzz down in Greensboro

Advantage: Syracuse

Boeheim Jacket Toss Meter

NCAA Basketball: North Florida at Syracuse Richard Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

7.7/10 Road games are usually unlikely for jacket tosses but Boeheim’s 1-0 in Virginia already this month so why not trust the numbers.

Wrestling Theme Song for this game

Syracuse could use someone with Tugboat’s size on the interior....just don’t send The Shockmaster in his place.


Who knew that 2020 would be the year that the Syracuse Orange turned into road warriors. The Orange return to Virginia and just like the men’s cross-country team in the Fall, they turn Blacksburg the right shade of orange.
