#FakeNunes previews Syracuse vs Georgetown

The game your uncle won’t shut up about is here

NCAA Basketball: Syracuse at Georgetown Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back, Fake Nunes fans. We’re here for another season of Syracuse Orange ACC Basketball so let’s get to this classic rivalry game

Opponent: Georgetown Hoyas

Location: Washington, DC

Students: 1students who need to be more Steve Holman and less Kaleigh McEnany

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:

Patrick Ewing must be thrilled with this pivot to casual. Look it’s not easy to be that tall and have a suit fit well but if we were advising the Georgetown coach we’d tell him to ditch the khakis and go full-on 1980s with sweat bands and knee pads. That would be intimidating.

The last Syracuse game was calling for a Boeheim Jacket Toss as Pitt chipped away at the Orange second-half lead. At some point Jim’s going to just leave a sport coat on his chair so he can hurl into the empty seats.

Advantage: Georgetown

NBA 2K Playability:

Donald Carey is a good player but the only Hoyas team anyone is taking on 2k is one that features Allen Iverson

Advantage: Syracuse

Basketball Program Hashtag:

None vs #HOYASAXA

Look Georgetown is still dumb and stupid and even they can figure out traditions.

Advantage: Georgetown

ACC Social Media Favorites:

Yes we usually only do this for conference games but this one is special and even #ACCTwitter will begrudgingly root for the Orange here

Advantage: Syracuse

9.99/10 This has been a long three weeks. From the escape over Buffalo to the pause and Jim being unable to get out and eat at Pastabilities added to the collapse against Pitt. It might not be easy to get the mask off but if this game is close we are on high alert for something being thrown to the Dome floor.

Prediction:

This game will be closer than it should and at some point Ewing and Boeheim will be face to face at mid-court both yelling at the referees. With the game in the balance late Joe Girard III will hit a 30-foot shot to clinch the Syracuse win and spawn 25 stories about how he dreamed of this day as a kid shooting in his Glens Falls driveway.
