Unless you live in a hole you noticed that top-50 2013 Tyler Ennis committed last night to Syracuse University. The Orange dominated the Big East regular season last year, winning by a three game margin.
On a side note: back in April his older brother Dylan - who played at Rice - announced that he was transferring to Villanova.
So, back to Tyler. As the commitments of big time players are want to do, his announcement to Syracuse set off a flurry of posts on Twitter. And many of them centered around the huge brother-on-brother matchup when Syracuse would square off with Villanova.
Congrats @bouncettcaau and @suzetteennis gotta be proud of @tdot_ennis,now we gotta wait for the Syracuse and villanova game@canadiankidDJE

Brother vs brother! Game of the year! Holy ****!
Oh wait, there's something not quite right about that.
Dear Internet: By the time @tdot_ennis is at Syracuse, they will be in the ACC and they won't play against Villanova.

Day #15 of Sabres in focus - Cody McCormick
It's tough to tell how much playing time Cody McCormick will actually get. Two seasons ago he played in 81 games, but this season he played in just 50.
He's not going to put up many points, but maybe with the additions of John Scott and Steve Ott, McCormick will have less fighting to do. That may lead to a slight increase...
Day #13 of Sabres in focus - Drew Stafford
His name has come up in trade rumors over this summer but really, whose name hasn't? The amount of rumors that I see on this site and Twitter is absurd.
Anyway, Stafford has enjoyed two of his best seasons, production wise, over the past couple of years. He's hit 50 points, but could have had an even better season in 2010...
Day #14 of Sabres in focus - Christian Ehrhoff
This was a great signing, and I think Ehrhoff will prove why with a stellar year. He's signed through the 2021 season, so he won't have a contract year for a long time.
After a pair of 14 goal seasons with the Canucks, Ehrhoff scored just five times with the Sabres. However, three of those goals turned out to be game-winners...
The North East Division teams got tougher this off-season the Buffalo Sabres signed former Dallas punk Steve Ott and former New York Rangers pylon John Scott – not to be out done – the Montreal Canadians signed former New York Rangers tough guy Brandon Prust, who shared the NHL’s league lead in fighting majors.
By signing these players – some have said that the North...
Doug Marrone didn't hesitate when the opportunity arose to take his Syracuse Orange to preseason train on an Army base.
''My thought process was very simple,'' Marrone said. ''I'm bringing my football team up there to get better, to get tougher, to work hard. All the things anyone would look at on the outside.''
So the Orange, 5-7 last year...
Along with Junior College transfer, Defensive Tackle Davon Walls, Nose Tackle Zian Jones is also looking to fit into a new line after spending time playing college football elsewhere. CuseNation.com spoke with Jones about how he's adjusting to the Syracuse way.
Like fellow RFAs Tyler Ennis, Jamie Benn, PK Subban, Michael Del Zotto, John Carlson, Dmitry Kulikov, Ryan O'Reilly sits patiently waiiting for his I-phone to ring.
As we sit here today on August 18, this year's prized RFA crop resembles a delicious clump of fresh, juicy grapes on the vine. The arrid Summer temps, combined with low precipitation raises caution...
Syracuse coach Doug Marrone has been tough on the offense through camp, as progress has been tough to come by. Factor in injuries, and the fourth-year coach is even more dissatisfied.
