SYRACUSE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Why Syracuse Needs Tyler Roberson

We saw the 20 rebound performance against Duke. We saw him nearly average a double double in the NCAA Tournament last season. We heard about the improving jump shot. Regardless, Tyler Roberson is no longer in the starting lineup. And you can’t really fault Jim Boeheim. Dajuan Coleman is looking like the five star recruit that he was and Tyus Battle has been significantly better...

Orange Offer ’18 Receiver Jacob Bell

The football season may be over but recruiting season is in full swing for the Syracuse coaches, as they try to wrap up the class of 2017 and look ahead to 2018. One offer that went out today was to 2018 wide receiver Jacob Bell, a long-striding outside receiver from Vero Beach, Florida. Truly blessed […]

What’s Up with Tyler Lydon?

Among the Syracuse blogosphere, you won’t find a bigger advocate for Tyler Lydon than me. I mean, you just won’t. I’ve been shouting praise about Syracuse’s sophomore forward since well before he ever suited up for the Orange, and continue to believe he’s got the talent to be an NBA lottery pick. But I’m also […]

Syracuse Must Forget About UConn & Ugly Losses Quickly

Syracuse’s battle against UConn was ugly, and while not everything went smoothly against North Florida, it would be better to harken back to that game. The shooting was terrible last night, the offense clunky, and the frustration at a boiling point. SU has failed to score more than 60 points in their last three losses. So erase those from the chalk board and let’s look at the...

Syracuse Falls in World’s Ugliest Game at the World’s Most Famous Arena

Syracuse basketball is all out of sorts. Despite incredibly high expectations, including high praise from the ever stoic Jim Boeheim, the Orange are off to a poor start. There is no where around that. Syracuse fell to UConn, who entered the game 3-4 with some ugly losses, 52-50 in a slugfest at the Garden. The teams both shot in the low to mid 20s in the first half and the game finished...

Battle, White Help Syracuse Survive UNF Scare

The first half of Syracuse’s (5-2) 77-71 win over North Florida was one that the Orange would like to forget. Although SU led 34-23 entering the intermission, the offense was hesitant, lackadaisical and frankly, playing down to its competition. Things were wacky even before the opening tip. After never switching up his starting lineup all of last season, Jim Boeheim went small...

Syracuse Orange still upbeat after another losing year

After Syracuse's record-setting loss to Pittsburgh that ended the Orange's first season under Dino Babers, the coach revealed his immediate plans. ''I am going to be out Sunday recruiting,'' Babers said after Saturday's 76-61 loss at Heinz Field. Smart move.
