The 2022-23 Fake Nunes Equation of Tumult (#FNET)

College basketball is full of metrics that no one really fully understands so we’ll continue to give you more ridiculousness with this year’s revised FNET metric.

Head Coach Casual Bench Attire:

Mike Brey has had a lot of questionable fits. This is one of them.

NCAA Basketball: Notre Dame at Boston College Eric Canha-USA TODAY Sports

Jim Boeheim has a lot of fits but we’re not talking about his fashion.

Advantage: Syracuse


Weird that these two schools show up with uniforms that the kids tell us could be best described as “mid”. There have to be better options than these.

Advantage: Push...where’s the script?

Basketball Program Hashtag:

None vs #GoIrish

Simple and clean.

Advantage: Notre Dame

Program pandering:

A new category where we look at the programs and see what they are trying to do to garner support from the fans.

Free donuts. Cute babies. Mike Brey will do anything to distract you from his record this season.

Advantage: Notre Dame. We’re not monsters who don’t like babies.


Notre Dame had no answer for Jesse Edwards in the first one so how could they stop him Inow that he’s added the Maliq Brown booster pack? Oh yeah, local guy returns to the Dome and plays in front of family and friends. JJ Starling gets 30 but that’s not enough as the Triple J Ranch has one more J and that’s enough to handle the Irish down the stretch.
