TNIAAM Comic Shop, Issue No. 3: Days of Future Past

Photo Illustration by Mario Tama/ Is time bleeding together for you yet? Read a comic book to pass the time. Welp, we’re still trudging along through various styles of quarantines and social limitations, and weekend No. 3 is upon us for many around the country. There are still no sports — and Syracuse Orange sports are out of the question until football starts (we hope). If this sounds like the plot of Keeley’s post-apocalyptic fiction, it’s not. Yet, anyway. Despite no actual Syracuse sports news, we’ve been talking plenty about Syracuse sports, but we’re also forced to...
Create your best Syracuse co-ed dodgeball team

Create your best Syracuse co-ed dodgeball team

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports We’re limiting it to athletes from 2010-20 Welcome to TNIAAM: The Otto, where we bring you the best of unkown Syracuse Orange sports to help fill that void in your daily lives! Today we’ll be diving into a topic which came up in a mailbag column from Andy Staples at The Athletic. Andy was asked which current college football players would he pick to form a dodgeball team and he made one wise decision going with Syracuse defensive back Andre Cisco “LSU cornerback Derrick Stingley Jr. (six interceptions last year, incredible body control) obviously...
Let’s revisit some of the great moments in Georgetown’s NCAA Tournament history

Let’s revisit some of the great moments in Georgetown’s NCAA Tournament history

Photo by Rob Carr/ We don’t want to forget these shining moments. As we continue to try to embrace the idea of cooperation and collaboration we thought it would be nice if Syracuse Orange fans could take a moment and revisit some of the Georgetown Hoyas’ finest NCAA moments of the last 10-15 years. March 21, 2015- Utah Utes 75, Hoyas 64 The last time Georgetown made the NCAA Tournament, the Hoyas turned a halftime tie into a double-digit defeat allowing the Utes to shot 58% from the field...but at least Utah was a single-digit seed. March 22, 2013- Florida Gulf Coast Eagles 78,...
At least financially, SU may have benefited from cancelling spring sports

At least financially, SU may have benefited from cancelling spring sports

Michael J. Okoniewski Not that it makes up for the fact that the seasons were cancelled. If you haven’t read Chris Carlson’s breakdown of the Syracuse Orange’s 2018-19 finances, I’d recommend heading there first. Since SU’s a private school, we typically have to wait a bit to learn anything about the money the athletic department spends and earns. And as soon as it’s available, Chris is quick to explain the most important parts. Most importantly this time around is that Syracuse had revenues of nearly $100 million ($99.8 million) — a school record — to go with record...
Syracuse football 2020 spring preview: Secondary

Syracuse football 2020 spring preview: Secondary

Photo by Bryan M. Bennett/ Can SU’s defensive backs find new life in a new scheme? The Syracuse Orange football team added 23 new players this offseason — thanks to recruiting and the transfer portal. And with those additions, we turned the page to the 2020 season... despite the fact that kickoff isn’t until September (hopefully). As you know, spring practice has officially been cancelled amid coronavirus fears, so that’s not necessarily going to help this team with new coordinators on both sides of the ball. Still, we’ll be finishing up the last couple position group previews...

Livestream: Less-than-ideal basketball, Syracuse football staff changes

Photo by Jared C. Tilton/ It’s a very odd Orange time... This is a weird time to be a sports fan, let alone a Syracuse Orange fan. For the first time since the collegiate sports season was cut short by COVID-19, Andy and Steve jump on a SportsCastr stream, to talk about the world at large and the impact it’s had on SU Sports. Some of the topics touched on during the broadcast: COVID-19: WASH YOUR HANDS. 2019-20 Syracuse Sports: The All-Time Dumb Season Syracuse Basketball: Buddy Boeheim to the 3? Jalen Carey at the point? Syracuse Football: First 2021 recruit and why expectations...
Grading Syracuse men’s basketball: Forwards

Grading Syracuse men’s basketball: Forwards

Photo by Jared C. Tilton/ The second of a four-part series reviewing all aspects of the 2019-20 season. Going a bit stir crazy in the midst of a pandemic does have at least one advantage — plenty of time to think and write about Syracuse Orange men’s basketball! In case you missed it, last week was part one of our four-part series, analyzing and grading the Orange guards. Part two is all about the forwards. As a refresher, this article will cover an offense, defense, and overall grade for each player, as well as grades for the group as a whole. So without further ado, let’s grade...

TNIAAP: Syracuse basketball schedule/Beer Bracket

What podcast is better suited for an extended “offseason” than this one? You may remember when this podcast didn’t focus on the Syracuse Orange as much as you preferred. And while that probably isn’t the case anymore, it’s those days that make us uniquely suited to deal with these days, when SU won’t be taking the field in any sport for quite a few months. Some of this week’s larger talking points: The Beer Bracket’s not going as we’d predicted Expanding upon the idea of weird opponents for Orange basketball Next year’s lineup, or at least some ideas around it Syracuse...
Elijah Hughes shattered expectations with Syracuse en route to NBA

Elijah Hughes shattered expectations with Syracuse en route to NBA

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports Hughes, who’s NBA-bound, scored double figures in all but the two games he was injured in, boosting the Orange above .500 through one of their roughest seasons in recent memory. Josiah McCall couldn’t recognize his former teammate Elijah Hughes’s game when his town of Beacon, N.Y. gathered to watch nationally televised games during Hughes’ first season playing for the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team. McCall knew his face, though — “ugly,” as he’d jokingly text in his hometown group chat whenever the HD cameras zoomed in on...
Who do you want to see on SU’s 2020-21 non-conference schedule?

Who do you want to see on SU’s 2020-21 non-conference schedule?

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports We already know a few names, so let’s talk about a few more. While the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team is still months from getting back on the court, the 2020-21 non-conference schedule is already starting to take shape. In fact, we already know at least three teams on the list. The Georgetown Hoyas are obvious given the four-year deal currently in place. And as part of the Gotham Classic, SU will also face the LSU Tigers at Madison Square Garden. That event will also include a recently reported home matchup with the Mercer Bears. And if previous...
How a couple of former Syracuse athletes are handling the sports pause

How a couple of former Syracuse athletes are handling the sports pause

James Carey Lauder-USA TODAY Sports for CPL We asked former Orange to share their thoughts on dealing with the COVID-19 situation We’ve focused on the impact of COVID-19 on Syracuse Orange teams but there are plenty of former Orange dealing with the uncertainty of putting their athletic pursuits on hold. We were able to check in with a couple of alums to see how they are handling the current climate. Jordan Murrell was a defender for Syracuse’s men soccer from 2011-14. Murrell had just begun his first season with the Las Vegas Lights FC of the USL when the season was halted for...
Replacing Elijah Hughes will require a collective effort

Replacing Elijah Hughes will require a collective effort

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports His importance to Syracuse went beyond scoring With the official announcement that Syracuse Orange 1st-team All-ACC player Elijah Hughes will enter the NBA Draft process we can turn our attention to the 20-21 Syracuse team. How will the Orange look to replace their leading scorer when they take the court next November? Last year at this time, we wondered who would step up and replace the scoring of Tyus Battle, Oshae Brissett and Frank Howard. It was Hughes who moved his game forward going from 13.7 points and 4.3 rebounds per game to 19 points and 4.3...
