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:

Jim Larranaga looks like he’s a guy who has the retirement strategy of heavily investing in Tesla stock

NCAA Basketball: Miami (FL) at Georgia Tech Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Jim Boeheim is so comfortable that in the final minute of a close game he wants to know why Kevin Costner won’t return his texts

NCAA Basketball: Notre Dame at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Advantage: Push. It’s always good when our elder coaches can be comfortable


Cuse fans- would you want to see a jersey option with Otto on the front like this?

NCAA Basketball: Virginia at Miami (FL) Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Advantage: Miami- these are fun

Basketball Program Hashtag:

None vs None

This isn’t any fun.

Advantage: Push

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.

Bragging about 1,500 students at a game? Otto’s Army would never

Advantage: Syracuse


Syracuse is going to mix it up and start fast in this one. The boisterous Wasco Center crowd will be chanting “Let’s Go Orange” all through the half. Then Jesse Edwards gets his 4th foul early in the 2nd half and Miami gets rolling. The Orange close the gap but Isaiah Wong takes over late in the game with some tough baskets to push Miami to a 5-point win.
