Syracuse University appeal of NCAA sanctions rewarded

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) The NCAA has lessened its punishment of Syracuse University, reducing the penalty of lost basketball scholarships by four. The NCAA Infractions Appeals Committee ruled that the total reduction of scholarships will be eight over four years rather than 12. The decision was announced Wednesday.

Former Syracuse Star Eric Devendorf Not Pleased With NCAA Appeal Ruling

The Syracuse basketball program received mixed news earlier today, when the NCAA ruled on its appeal of the heavy penalties originally levied in March. SU will get one scholarship back ever year, after originally losing three every year through 2018-19, but 101 of the program’s wins will not be restored. Former Orange star Eric Devendorf, who played at SU from 2005-2009, is not...

Syracuse basketball earns back another scholarship after appeal

Back in March, the Syracuse men’s basketball team was hit with heavy sanctions after it was found that the program and coach Jim Boeheim had been committing a litany of violations going as far back as a decade. Originally, the NCAA vacated 108 wins from the program due to the use of ineligible players and reduced their available scholarships by three until the 2018-19 season. On...

Some Good, Some Bad with Appeal Ruling

After an awful lot of time waiting, and waiting, and waiting on the NCAA to rule on Syracuse University’s appeal, we finally have our answer: the Orange, and Jim Boeheim, will still have to vacate more than 100 wins, but Syracuse will get back one scholarship per year through the duration of the penalty.

So Who’s the Next Syracuse Head Coach?

Well, the dismissal of Scott Shafer is in the rearview mirror, for better or worse. While firing a coach is never ideal, it’s over and done with and it’s time to move on. So now the question arises: who will be the next head football coach at Syracuse University? As I mentioned the other day, […]

Scott Shafer has officially been let go

Three Up, Three Down: Syracuse vs. Elon

Three Up Tyler Roberson Looking at the final box score, it isn’t very hard to figure out that Tyler Roberson was the Orange’s most important player on the floor last night.  Logging 37 minutes, he tallied a career-high 20 points and 16 rebounds of 9-of-15 shooting.  Seven of his 16 rebounds were offensive which really helped the Orange extend possessions and pull away in the...

Tyler Roberson’s Resurgence Can Change the Look of the Syracuse Offense

It was the Tyler Roberson show as Syracuse beat Elon 66-55 to improve to 3-0 on the season. With Michael Gbinije picking up three fouls in the first half, Syracuse needed someone else to step up and be the main man on offense. Roberson led all scorers with a career high 20 points, 14 of which came in the first half, hitting 9 of 14 from the field. With Gbinije on the bench for...

The Wheels Fall Off For Syracuse Against NC State

I think I have run out of ways to say Syracuse football lost. The streak is up to eight losses in a row after Syracuse fell to NC State 42-29 Saturday, leaving only next week’s game against Boston College as the Orange’s last hope for “improvement” over last season. As for today’s game, it wasn’t as close as the score indicated by any means. Syracuse was beaten in almost...

Kaleb Joseph Has to Prove He Has a Role at Syracuse

A lot can change in a year and no one has learned that in a more abrupt way than Kaleb Joseph. A year ago, he was the guy who was going to help replace the phenom Tlyer Ennis. Now, he has lost his job as the starting point guard to Michael Gbinije, who isn’t even a guard. Just a few days ago, it seemed like Joseph may be a go-to player off of the bench. Now, things took another...

There is no QB Controversy on the SU Hill

With the way the Syracuse Orange has performed against two top 10 teams with Zack Mahoney under center, there has been some chatter about Mahoney possibly earning a scholarship, and maybe even competing with Eric Dungey for the starting job next season. Let’s stop with that discussion. Please. Mahoney has filled in admirably, and the Orange has probably played its two best games...

Syracuse Releases “CuseMode” Hype Video Ahead Of 2015-2016 Season

The Syracuse Orange were hit by the NCAA with some rough sanctions this past offseason, but unlike last year, in 2015-2016, the team will be eligible for the NCAA Tournament. Of course, they’ll need to post a better record than 18-13 to make it happen. Friday, ahead of the team’s first game of the season, Syracuse released a hype video titled #CuseMode.

Video: Nasty fight broke out in stands during LOU-SYR

The Louisville Cardinals and Syracuse Orange played this week and it wasn’t much of a game. Louisville took care of business by a final score of 41-17 and the game never appeared to be in question. Perhaps the most intriguing part of the game, however, was the fight that broke out in the stands. Football brings out the worst in quite a few people and that was the case in this game...

Report: Syracuse To Start 6-Foot-7 Michael Gbinije At Point Guard This Season

The 2-3 zone is a signature part of Jim Boeheim’s Syracuse basketball program, and the top of that zone is going to be awfully long this season.
