The Syracuse Orange were embarrassed by the Clemson Tigers last night. It was an ugly game on both ends of the floor but perhaps a slight change in tactics could have turned the result around.
No, not switching to man-to-man defense or running some semblance of offense. We’re talking about the 1⁄4 zip that Jim and staff chose to wear at Clemson. The numbers simply point out that the choice was a blue Block S, not a grey one.

You simply can’t ignore the 3-1 road/neutral record of the blue Block S and to roll the dice on a combination that entered last night 3-4 on the season was a mistake. We’re not sure how Syracuse could knock off NC State last week then not get these washed and pressed before these critical games.
As the season winds down we suggest that every sideline look is the Block S and the colors chosen are either white or blue (ok we’d be fine if they tried orange too). Even if they need to purchase some extras of these versions to pack for Greensboro, it’s got to be done.
Remember it’s not superstition if the numbers back it up. Fashion analytics is too important to ignore.
