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:

Kevin Keatts knew the photographers were going to get shots of him in this pose. Probably made it one of his profile photos.

Do you think any of the players asked Boeheim if the men could wear pink uniforms for this game?

Advantage: Syracuse even if they don’t wear red or pink

There’s nothing wrong with celebrating a milestone anniversary for your National Championship team.

Advantage: Push


If you skip out on dessert after your Valentine’s dinner, you could enjoy the sweet treats that these two offenses can deliver. Three pointers could be raining down like Cupid’s arrows in this one. Will the Orange Triple J Trio be delivering a sweet bouquet for their sweethearts? Certainly Syracuse won’t spoil the Boeheims’ post-game dinner by dropping this one- Orange by five.
