#FakeNunes previews Syracuse vs. North Carolina

Let’s hope Cole World doesn’t play well in the snow

NCAA Basketball: Syracuse at North Carolina Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team will end one chapter under The Dome on Saturday. Will it be a good memory or another a special day spoiled by a loss?

Opponent: North Carolina Tar Heels

Location: Chapel, Hill N.C.

Students: 29,894 students who are only watching college basketball to root for Duke’s opponents

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:

This is a match-up of two coaches who should just stop the charade and sign deals with Vineyard Vines. Roy Williams would be so much more comfortable in a nice Jim Nantz collection quarter-zip.

I should be the last person to suggest Jim Boeheim stops wearing a jacket during games, but think of the visual of an incensed Boeheim pulling at a quarter-zip after a missed zone rotation.

Advantage: Syracuse because Boeheim doesn’t wear those checkerboard sport coats

NBA 2K Playability:

Cole Anthony and Garrison Brooks are better individually than you realize and in video games you can pretty much ignore the lesser players on your team.

Advantage: North Carolina

Basketball Program Hashtag:

None vs #CarolinaFamily

Is this trying to go one step further than Duke’s #TheBrotherhood by being more inclusive? If so that’s a heady social media play.

Advantage: North Carolina

ACC Social Media Favorites:

I mean do we have to explain the reason for this one?

Advantage: North Carolina

Boeheim Jacket Toss Meter

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

8.9/10 This is Syracuse’s best opportunity to break the long losing streak against UNC and Boeheim’s going to have every possible advantage ready to go. Forget the blizzard warning, we’ve got a jacket toss warning for Saturday from 4-6 pm.

Wrestling Theme Song for this game

The North Carolina natives would always pull out something crazy to get the crowd going only to have their opponents find a way to sneak away with the win. Sounds a lot like the 19-20 Tar Heels to me.


What do you get when you mix a jersey retirement, Senior Day, and the final game under the inflatable roof. You’ll get a Syracuse win and some people going to the top row after the final buzzer to attempt to cut pieces of the roof on their way back to Oswego County.*

*Please don’t try this. We don’t advocate using your Blue Light cans to slice The Dome roof.
