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:

Bob Huggins was sideline casual before sideline casual was a thing. He dresses like someone who gave his two-weeks notice and has zero f’s to give.

Seny Ndiaye vs Marek Dolezaj

1.7/10 With Buddy hitting 50% from 3 Jim’s got little to stress about these days.


The NCAA is trying to mess with Syracuse’s momentum by moving the team to Bankers Life Fieldhouse but Buddy throws them off by shaving his head and channeling his inner Reggie Miller. Huggins doesn’t have Joe Mazzulla to save him as this game is decided by better free-throw shooting from the Orange who survive and advance.
