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:
We really tried to find a good photo of Josh Pastner and would you believe this was the best we found? Josh should really think about joining #TeamNoTie
Jim Boeheim went away from the black/gray sport coat at Louisville and we applaud this step.
Advantage: Syracuse because taking a bolder fashion choice should be supported.
NBA 2K Playability:
Michael Devoe’s cooled off from his torrid start but the Orange can’t let him get comfy and cozy on the perimeter or it could be poison for Syracuse.
Advantage: Georgia Tech
Basketball Program Hashtag:
None vs #BuiltDifferent/TogetherWeSwarm
They say if you have two hashtags then you have none, but the reality is that when you have no hashtag then you have none.
Advantage: Georgia Tech but they reallllly should have something Outkast-related
ACC Social Media Favorites:
Marek Dolezaj has been battered and bruised all season and he finally gets recognized for all the damage he’s absorbed.
Boeheim Jacket Toss Meter
9.98/10 That last post-game press conference was pretty testy, so I don’t think we’re going to see a subdued Boeheim on the sideline Saturday afternoon.
Wrestling Theme Song for this game
After watching Cody Rhodes moonsault off a cage in Atlanta the other night this was an easy choice...especially when you look at the “son of a legendary figure trying to make his own way” angle that’s playing out in Syracuse.
It’s about pride now. This game won’t be easy, but Syracuse finds a way at the end to get a win.
