Welcome back, Fake Nunes fans. It’s the time of the year we’ve waited two years for...is it two or has it been twenty? Either way let’s start dancing
Opponent: San Diego State Aztecs
Location: San Diego, CA
Students: 35, 578 students who probably don’t remember how bad ass Marshall Faulk looked in those all-black uniforms
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:
Brian Dutcher is giving off some athletic administrator vibes with this look. Like he’s staring down the pep band for playing WAP when he emphatically warned them not to even think about.
Jim Boeheim can’t believe Rick Pitino has been ducking his badminton challenges all week.
NBA 2K Playability:
This one is definitely about name brand. The Aztecs have solid players but will probably be underrated in the game.
Basketball Program Hashtag:
None vs #GoAztecs
Simple and to the point.
Advantage: San Diego State
ACC Social Media Favorites:
Che Evans vs Marek Dolezaj
Not a lot to choose from with a West Coast squad so we took the freshman from Philly and Neumann-Goretti High School which should sound familiar to Syracuse fans. Even still the ACC folks are going to be more focused on Marek getting his pizza inside the Indy bubble.
Jacket Mask Toss Meter
2.8/10 Some bookmakers think they are funny letting you place bets on some unsavory Boeheim behavior. Maybe next season we’ll be able to wager on jacket tosses instead.
Syracuse enters the final 10 seconds down one. After a time-out Jim Boeheim calls the picket fence play while his players stand around confused as to what he’s talking about. Thinking quickly G-Mac explains that Coach wants you three guys camping around the arc so Buddy can run around and get his shot off so no one has to fight out of the gulag. Now it’s Jim’s turn to look confused but like a scene out of a Hollywood movie the play works and the underdog wins in Hinkle.
