Welcome back to TNIAAM Reacts, as we reveal the results of our latest polls to feel the pulse of the Syracuse Orange fanbase. Basketball season continues to kick into high gear, but Fran Brown is making sure that the Orange faithful don’t forget about the gridiron in December.
Onto the results:
With the crazy athletic team that Syracuse has this season, it’s no surprise that many on the Orange can lay down the thunder when called upon. That much was evident against Georgetown.
Naturally, Orange hopes are high after a convincing second half against the Hoyas. This is an Oregon team that also has suffered an upset loss against Santa Clara and needed overtime to upend a struggling Michigan. Can Syracuse take advantage of a seemingly weaker Ducks team?
Syracuse’s impressive win over Alabama wasn’t enough to get the Orange into the rankings. Even with back-to-back 20+ point wins, Syracuse still finds itself on the outside looking in. It should be only a matter of time before Felisha Legette-Jack’s squad muscles its way into the polls.
As a lover of cars (thanks Top Gear), I’m upset that the Ferrari in the Dome didn’t receive more love. Then again, when your new head coach flips multiple 4-star recruits, I guess that’s the more important takeaway.
