The first dive into the ACC field that’s largely disappointed so far begins tomorrow.
How does a weaker league impact Syracuse, who left non-conference play with no baggage of bad losses nor any wins to brag about on Selection Sunday? Cuse’s ACC schedule poses a balanced slate of difficult road and home games, with home games like Notre Dame and Virginia Tech right away the Orange need to win to avoid any additional lag to what they failed to build in 2019.
James and Bobby dive into 2020, where Elijah Hughes should be considered an ACC Player of the Year front-runner until further notice, Jim Boeheim needs to weigh Buddy Boeheim’s excellent offense with his poor defense and injuries are beginning to exacerbate all the issues present in Syracuse. We should know within one week if this is a truly lost season, or one with hope through February.
