#FakeNunes previews Syracuse vs. Louisville

The final chance for a major resume boost before Greensboro.

NCAA Basketball: Louisville at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team heads to Louisville on Wednesday night to take on a familiar foe.

Students: 22,471 students who have been trained to respond “Who’s that? Never heard of him...” anytime someone mentions the names Bobby Petrino or Rick Pitino

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:

The best thing we can say about Chrs Mack’s style is that at least he hasn’t worn a white suit on the sidelines.

NCAA Basketball: Louisville at Clemson Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

This is a much better match-up for Jim Boeheim than Leonard Hamilton was — that’s for sure.

NCAA Basketball: Syracuse at Florida State Melina Myers-USA TODAY Sports

Advantage: Syracuse because dressing like a 70 year old is fine when you’re in your 70s.

NBA 2K Playability:

You’ll hear a lot about the Jordan Nwora-Elijah Hughes battle but the true basketball folks know it might come down to Dwayne Sutton against Marek Dolezaj

Advantage: Louisville because while both teams shoot lots of 3s only one makes a lot of them

Basketball Program Hashtag:

None vs #GoCards

Louisville keeps it simple here so that works for this one.

Advantage: Louisville

ACC Social Media Favorites:

The Orange might have had a chance until Louisville won in Cameron and David Johnson made a new set of friends in Raleigh and Chapel Hill.

Advantage: Louisville

Boeheim Jacket Toss Meter

NCAA Basketball: Wake Forest at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

7.75/10 Jim actually had a chance in Tallahassee to put the jacket into Doug Marrone’s lap and bring home a huge Syracuse win. He didn’t get it done and that’s a lot of bologna.

Wrestling Theme Song for this game

Led by Louisville native Jim Cornette, it’s the Midnight Express- Beautiful Bobby Eaton and Stunning Stan Lane. If you aren’t familiar with Jim Cornette just picture Jim Boeheim around this same timeframe but give him a tennis racket and a microphone during games.


This game probably comes down to Louisville’s 3-pt shooting. It feels like the Orange are do to shoot better so somehow they pull everyone back in with a five point road win.
