7-day respite just what Syracuse needed

Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim and his thin roster needed a break, and the Orange got one at a most opportune time. When Syracuse (13-6, 2-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) hosts Boston College (13-6, 3-3 ACC) on Wednesday night, the Orange will be coming off a seven-day hiatus as the midpoint of the conference season looms and thoughts of the postseason begin to take hold. This team, which...

Former Four-Star RB Transfers to Syracuse Football

It is fair to say that Abdul Adams was no longer simply “Oklahoma O.K.!” being a Sooner. The former four-star running back has transferred to Syracuse.   Syracuse University Athletics announced the move Monday.     In his two seasons with Oklahoma, Adams played in 19 total games. He started four of them.   He leaves the Sooners having contributed 825 rushing yards on 112 attempts...

Is Syracuse Inside or Outside the Bubble?

For the third straight year, Syracuse basketball fans will likely find themselves sweating it out on Selection Sunday. As of right now, Joe Lunardi has Syracuse in a play in game as an 11 seed in his latest bracketology despite a less-than-stellar start to conference play. However, then again Lunardi has misfired on picking the Orange the past two years so take that as you may. Regardless...

Previewing an important week for Syracuse Basketball

The Syracuse Orange finally snapped a four game skid when they took down the Pittsburgh Panthers last Tuesday, but there is still more work to be done. The Orange are now 2-4 in the ACC and take on Boston College (3-4) and have a rematch with Pitt (0-7) this week. If the Orange win both of these games and some other ACC results go their way, they can potentially move from the basement...

How Mychale Salahuddin Would Change Syracuse Football

There was no basketball for the Orange this weekend, yet it may have been one of the most important ones on the calendar for Syracuse athletics. Four-star running back Mychale Salahuddin took his official visit to the school this weekend. Salahuddin is the fifth ranked all-purpose running back and is a top 250 overall prospect, according to 247 Sports. He decommitted from USC before...

Three bold predictions for the Syracuse Orange’s final push

This was supposed to be a transition year for the Syracuse Orange, but today they find themselves at 13-6 with a real shot to play their way into March. The youth on this year’s roster has shown the ability to play in big time games, something many did not expect. Yes they are young and have made some classic freshmen mistakes, but Syracuse should be happy with how well their freshmen...

Possible Solutions To Syracuse’s Stagnant Offense

Syracuse got a much needed bounce back win against Pitt on Tuesday night, and due to a kind break in the schedule, still have a real shot of getting back above the .500 mark in the ACC in the coming weeks. However, optimism around the Syracuse fanbase is likely limited in spite of the victory on Tuesday. Pitt is undoubtedly one of the worst teams in the ACC and quite possibly among...

Finding the bright spots in SU’s ugly win over Pitt

Syracuse broke its four-game losing streak with a win over Pitt Tuesday, but it wasn’t a fun one to watch. The Orange scored just 59 points, and only the Panthers’ complete disarray allowed SU to pick up a 14-point victory. It’s easy to be down on the Orange, even with a win Tuesday, but SU found bright spots out of the players which had been struggling this season. Frank Howard...

Syracuse Redefines Winning Ugly In Victory Over Pitt

They really do play to the level of competition, don’t they. Against the worst team in the ACC, Syracuse scratched out a 59-45 win over Pitt in one of the worst basketball games played inside the Carrier Dome (high school games and the famed “Media Cup” included). Don’t let the final score fool you, this wasn’t a defensive battle. It was an offensive struggle, and even that is generous...

Fizz Film Room: Size alone won’t win Syracuse games

Syracuse is the tallest team in the country — it’s one the stat crutches Orange fans have leaned on since the before the season. This isn’t the most talented team, but it’s big! Perfect for the 2-3 zone. Nobody is scoring on us. It’s a believable story. Jim Boeheim has lacked a true presence inside the past few years with Tyler Lydon playing in the middle of the zone much of last...

How Should Syracuse Fans Feel After The Florida State Loss?

Oh. So. Close. Maybe this game should not have felt as big as it did, but when you’re reeling as bad as Syracuse is and the opponent has a tiny little number next to its name, it’s going to feel a lot bigger. It certainly felt like the Orange played up to the hype of the game. SU’s 101-90 double overtime loss to No. 23 Florida State was one of the best performances we’ve seen out...
