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

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.

Advantage: Syracuse

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.
