C.J. FAIR RUMORS & GOSSIP
What does Syracuse’s win over Indiana on Tuesday night tell us? The Orange has plenty of ways it can beat you, and a team that is gelling earlier than we expected. SU is now 7-0 and ranked 4th in the AP, 5th in the USA Today Coach’s Poll. The Orange is now lumped in a group of some of the best teams in the nation, including Michigan State, Kentucky, Ohio State, Arizona...
Syracuse dashed Indiana's national championship hopes in last season's NCAA tournament, upsetting a top-seeded Hoosiers team in the round of 16.
Revenge may be hard to come by in the rematch Tuesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge at the Carrier Dome, as the No. 4 Orange should be the favorites to win again in their debut in the tournament.

So much for the efficacy of that “no blood, no foul” rule as far as Syracuse star C.J. Fair is concerned.
While he was slamming how two of his game-high 16 points in a 75-67 victory over Minnesota on Monday, Fair got clocked by Gophers forward Austin Hollins (making it all the more impressive that he was able to successfully complete the dunk), opening up a cut more common on...

‘ Credit: Bleacher Report Syracuse forward C.J. Fair became very bloody after a poster board dunk against Minnesota on Monday. While scoring his fourth point of the game Fair was clobbered across his cheek by Austin Hollins of Minnesota which triggered blood below his right eye. After viewing the play even the commentators were shocked no foul was given for the hit. C.J. Fair Dunk/Blood
Syracuse senior forward C.J. Fair is used to some physical play down inside the paint, but this may be a little overboard. As Fair was throwing down a monster slam Monday night against Minnesota at the Maui Invitational, his faced was slashed, causing blood to splatter everywhere. Somehow, it wasn’t called a foul either.
Fair, after being cleaned up, was able to return to the...
Syracuse’s C.J. Fair was a big reason why the Orange advanced to the 2013 Final Four and is a worthy choice for this year’s preseason ACC Player of the Year. Alas, he’ll never be confused for Rembrandt – or even the most talented artist in a second-grade classroom, for that matter. At ACC Media Day last week, ESPN asked Fair and other players and coaches from the conference...
After seeing this drawing of Otto, the mascot for the Syracuse Orange, I believe this much is true, C.J. Fair is much better at basketball than drawing.
This whole thing came about when ESPN asked a bunch of ACC basketball players and coaches to draw a rendering of their school's mascot.
The results were very entertaining to say the least.
Typo, or leak?
NBA.com’s David Aldridge wrote an article yesterday about the small forwards of the 2013 class, claiming that Syracuse star C.J. Fair had already declared for the NBA Draft. While many believe Fair will in fact go pro, he hasn’t made any decision public, though he is scheduled to have a press conference this week to update the school and fans on...

C.J. Fair did not declare for the NBA Draft Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean he’s coming back. Yesterday was the NCAA’s deadline, and Fair still has not announced his pro plans. As long as he doesn’t sign with an agent, he has until April 28th to return to Syracuse.
So over the next 11 days Fair will gather information from league people about his prospects, and where he is...
