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.

NBA 2K Playability:
Teams that win through defense are horrible selections for videogames.
Basketball Program Hashtag:
#ClemsonGrit vs None
Ted Cruz: fighter for the working man approves of the Clemson hashtag. I
ACC Social Media Favorites:
Aamir Simms vs Marek Dolezaj

8.9/10 Jim’s temper has been reaching a strong simmer the last couple of games. Buddy’s been getting away with a lot of warding off on his drives so when he finally gets called for one watch for the eruption.
Bad news- Syracuse games have been pretty ugly recently, especially at the start. Good news- this game starts at 5 so all drinking is socially acceptable. Better news- the post-game drinks will be in celebration, not despair. Good Orange people win by 5.
