Welcome back, Fake Nunes fans. We’re here for another season of Syracuse Orange ACC Basketball so let’s see if the Orange can make it two wins in a row
Opponent: Virginia Tech Hokies
Location: Blacksburg, VA
Students: 36,383 students who do not miss watching Buzz Williams sweat through his suit on the sideline
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:
It’s weird to only find four photos of the head coach of a top 25 program but Mike Young just seems like the coach avatar in a video game. He doesn’t seem to venture away from school-issued gear and he’s 1000x times less annoying on the sidelines than his predecessor.
Jim Boeheim has been rocking some amazing script logo 1⁄4 zips and if I were someone in Syracuse Athletics trying to make up for lost ticket revenue I would be marketing the shit out of these.....just saying.
NBA 2K Playability:
Enjoy that Quincy Guerrier ratings boost gamers.
Basketball Program Hashtag:
None vs #StonebyStone
A blue-collar work ethic tag that also connects to the Hokie Stone mined by Virginia Tech. Let’s also hope it refers to their outside shots in this one.
Advantage: Virginia Tech
ACC Social Media Favorites:
Hunter Cattoor vs Marek Dolezaj
Jacket Mask Toss Meter
2.7/10 The mood around The Official Jim Boeheim Jacket Toss Tracker™ Headquarters is pretty grim these days. Staff are tracking Boeheim’s 1⁄4 zip choices but it’s not their passion. We have to admit that Jim looks more comfortable but we long for those tosses.
A week ago Orange fans had pivoted to the Buffalo Bills but a win over Miami and suddenly visions of Apology Tour III: Slovakian Nights are abound. The Hokies are ranked and favored but this one sure seems like that “upset” win that Syracuse is going to get. Orange take this one by a field goal.
