Syracuse Smashes Loyola 70-37, Christmas & McCullough Fly

Syracuse looked dominant in a blowout win over Loyola, 70-37. The Orange defense was dazzling against the Greyhounds, harassing shooters into bad decisions and forcing a slew of errant shots. At one point on the 2nd half, Loyola was shooting a paltry 12% from the field. That’s simply hard to even type. Twelve percent shooting. How often does that happen? Loyola finished with 19...

Dontae Strickland Should Play As True Freshman Next Year

It’s time for Scott Shafer to consider making a true freshman the centerpiece of the 2015 offense. New Jersey running back and Syracuse commit Dontae Strickland once again led his South Brunswick team to a playoff victory Friday. The running back caught a 20-yard touchdown pass and rushed for 85 yards on just ten carries in his team’s 33-0 semifinal win over Trenton. The Vikings...

SU’s Three-Point Shooting A Major Issue

Syracuse shot 29% from the field and 20% from three in the team’s 66-63 win over Iowa last night. Luckily, Rakeem Christmas and Chris McCullough made up for this. The big men went 14/23 from the field combining for 38 points. That’s not going to happen every night. The Orange needs more production from its guards and it starts with the three point shot. It’s one thing to be...

It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Groobers: SU Blown Out by Pitt 30-7

We already knew Syracuse football wasn’t heading anywhere but home for the holidays. But the Orange isn’t even being competitive down the stretch. In an ugly effort Saturday at Pittsburgh, the Panthers blow out SU 30-7. Pitt jumped out to a 17-0 lead and never looked back. The lone offensive highlight was the 10-play, 75-yard touchdown drive which ended in SU’s only score,...

Game Notes: Syracuse @ California

Syracuse at California  11/20/2014 9:00:00 PM |  TV:ESPN2 | LIVE STATSAfter tonight, Syracuse will have played Cal more times since March 2013 than any other opponent. That's weird. The Syracuse Orange and California Golden Bears really shouldn't know one another all that well. We're on opposite coasts. The likelihood our football programs we'll ever meet again are slim. The...

Oneida YMCA Part of NCAA Investigation against Syracuse

This year’s Syracuse Orange basketball team has enough questions surrounding it with an inexperienced squad and a #24 preseason Coaches Poll ranking. An NCAA investigation hasn’t made things any easier. A hearing in October officially ended the NCAA’s investigation of the Syracuse basketball (and football) programs, and a ruling could be coming at any time. The ongoing investigations...

Injury-plagued Syracuse still in a QB quandary

Bye weeks aren't so bad, especially when the losses are mounting and the injury report has too many entries. Syracuse's Scott Shafer certainly knows all about that as he tries to piece together a lineup for Saturday's game at Pittsburgh (4-6, 2-4 Atlantic Coast Conference). The injury-riddled Orange (3-7, 1-5 ACC) have lost three straight games and seven of eight. Despite...

Jim Boeheim trolls Jay Bilas during first day on Twitter

Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim, surprisingly, joined Twitter Friday morning. By Friday afternoon, he’d already figured out the main purpose of the social media medium – banter. Boeheim, responding to a tweet sent out by ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas, claimed ignorance after the former Duke star called him out for following some of the more attractive women in sports...

Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim joins Twitter

Syracuse basketball head coach Jim Boeheim has long claimed that he’s quite inept when it comes to technology. Apparently that all changed Friday, when he officially joined Twitter. He’s been making the rounds the past week to promote his new book “Bleeding Orange”, so the timing makes sense. Still, it feels a bit like hell has frozen over. Seems like yesterday I got a...

Le Moyne College Printing Shirts To Celebrate 5 Year Anniversary Of Exhibition Win Over Syracuse

Five years ago, at the beginning of the college basketball season, the Le Moyne College Dolphins, a Division II program at a school of just over 3,500 students, went to the Carrier Dome and beat the Syracuse Orange in an exhibition game 82-79. At this point, that game is a funny footnote for a Syracuse team that went 30-5, won the Big East regular season, and earned a No. 1 seed...

Syracuse fan gets detailed Jim Boeheim tattoo

Jim Boeheim is everything to Syracuse basketball. The legendary coach arrived at Syracuse University in 1962 as a freshman basketball walk-on, and has never left, turning SU from a strong regional program in Central New York into a true national power. It is no surprise that Syracuse fans have a strong attachment to Boeheim. One fan loves the legendary coach so much, that he put...
