Welcome back, Fake Nunes fans. We’re here for another season of Syracuse Orange ACC Basketball so let’s get to the Orange’s first visit of the year to Tobacco Road
Opponent: North Carolina Tar Heels
Location: Chapel Hill, NC
Students: 30,101 students who think argyle is always a fashionable choice
The 2020-21 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’re bringing back a revised FNET metric.
Head Coach Bench Attire and Mask:
We pointed out Roy’s sweater vest in our ACC Casual piece and that’s better than what he had going on last week in Coral Gables. Come on UNC, get Roy some pants that fit.
We think Jim Boeheim brought out his best look of the season on Saturday night. White script Syracuse 1⁄4 zip with the dark pants.
NBA 2K Playability:
With five top-50 recruits on their roster UNC is going to get the ratings edge.
Basketball Program Hashtag:
None vs #CarolinaFamily
So we’ve got Family and The Brotherhood, does NC State use some other relative-related hashtag? Guess we’ll find out later this season

Come on do we even need to explain this
Jacket Mask Toss Meter
4.4/10 The hope of seeing a Boeheim sideline toss is fading. Jim’s got this clear mask thing down and the 1⁄4 zip isn’t getting ripped off over his glasses but maybe we’ll get some kind of toss but not likely in this one.
UNC hasn’t shot well all year and have had a week off. Syracuse is coming off two tough games and it’s unsure if Bourama Sidibe can go in this one. Not sure Marek Dolezaj can handle 40 minutes against the Tar Heels bigs and that rebounding advantage leads to a five-point Syracuse loss.
