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:
Coach K looks like he’s ready to take his grandkids to the zoo but if they behave then he’ll stop for a tall glass of milk on the way home.
Jim Boeheim is out here looking like his partner just nailed a 40-foot putt in the club championship.
NBA 2K Playability:
Duke’s got the talent advantage and that’s what matters in the virtual world.
Basketball Program Hashtag:
None vs #TheBrotherhood
To their credit Duke doesn’t use that in every tweet because it’s pretty pretentious.
ACC Social Media Favorites:
I mean after Jim Boeheim’s Jalen Johnson comments this one is no contest.
Jacket Mask Toss Meter
7.7/10 We return to the scene of the near jacket toss everyone thinks was the 1st Jim Boeheim Jacket Toss. Tension will be high in this one so if Tony Greene shows up tonight look out.
Have we mentioned this is a pivotal game? Well since both teams need this one expect it to be very intense and with both having played tough games on Saturday it’s also going to be sloppy. Whoever wins the battle on the boards escapes with a close one....this seems like the one Syracuse finds a way to steal as they escape town.
