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:

Jim Christian seems like a nice enough guy but this might be the worst HC outfit we’ve seen in the ACC this season.

Jim Boeheim might have been trying to catch Tom Brady’s eye with his tie selection on Saturday.

Advantage: Syracuse

NBA 2K Playability:

BC’s one of the worst shooting teams around so you’re more likely to make them your opponent than use them as your team.

Advantage: Syracuse

None vs #WeAreBC

Are we the only ones

Advantage: Boston College

ACC Social Media Favorites:

Nik Popovic is back for this one and Jay Heath has endeared himself in his first season with the Eagles.

2.83/10 It seems like after Saturday’s loss that Jim’s not going to be as tightly wound for this one....some might say he’s even a tad bit deflated heading into this game. Just a little pressure is off the team and people can spy the end coming.

Wrestling Theme Song for this game

For this rematch we go with Boston native Tommaso Ciampa and the appropriately named theme “No One Will Survive”. We’ve already seen the firing of Steve Addazio and it looks like Jim Christian’s days are numbered in Chestnut Hill. The pressure’s on BC’s sailing coach this Spring


Marek Dolezaj’s going to get back on track as BC extends on the Syracuse perimeter players. The Orange will watch a double-digit lead disappear late in the game but solid free throw shooting puts this one in the win column to the delight of about 5,500 Syracuse fans in Conte.
