Last year the Orange shot the lights out in Conte in front of a bunch of cardboard cutouts. This year they will shoot the lights out in front of a bunch of empty chairs and Syracuse fans. First audible “Let’s Go Orange” chant will be detected about 11 minutes into the game and the people will get some extended Paddy Casey run in this one. That sound you hear is Syracuse fans sending emails to Joe Lunardi asking what the Orange need to do to get into the First Four.
