MLAX: Orange wrap up the regular season with trip to Annapolis against Navy

MLAX: Orange wrap up the regular season with trip to Annapolis against Navy

But this isn’t the biggest game that involves the Orange. With ACC regular season play complete, the Syracuse Orange wrap up the regular season with a road trip to Annapolis to take on the Navy Midshipmen. Opening faceoff is set for 5 PM on CBS Sports Network with John Sadak and Evan Washburn on the call (Live Stats are here). Navy leads the all-time series 19-8-1, but Syracuse has won seven of the last nine meetings. This will be the first time since 1982 the two teams played each other in Annapolis in the regular season. The teams met for a fall ball scrimmage at Navy-Marine Corps...

LINKS: (Begrudgingly) Virginia’s title shows how dominant ACC’s been

We’re not chanting “A-C-C,” but this has been a hell of a decade for the league. No, we’re not claiming Virginia’s national title as some sort of victory for Syracuse. There will be no “A-C-C” chants to echo the SEC’s embarrassing practice that lets Vanderbilt feel like they had something to do with what Alabama football and Kentucky basketball did. That said, it’s worth looking at what the ACC — which we’ve been members of since July 2013 — has done in the postseason these past 10 years. Some of that success has involved the Orange and some hasn’t. But with or...
Syracuse MBB’s future non-conference schedules get tougher to balance

Syracuse MBB’s future non-conference schedules get tougher to balance

As expected, the 20-game ACC slate is going to make things a bit tougher. Since the ACC announced an expanded 20-game schedule, we knew that it would likely impact the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team’s ability to add all of the teams it wanted to in non-conference play. We’ve talked about that from time to time here, and hypothesized about who makes the cut (and who doesn’t) when looking at Syracuse’s usual non-conference foes. To little surprise, we’re far from the only ones paying some consideration to that upcoming challenge. Syracuse.com’s Mike Waters spoke to SU...
Looking at Syracuse MLAX ACC Tournament possibilities

Looking at Syracuse MLAX ACC Tournament possibilities

The Orange are done with the conference slate — but the same can’t be said for the rest of the ACC. The Syracuse Orange men’s lacrosse team has already wrapped up the 2019 ACC slate, going 2-2 with wins over Duke and North Carolina, and losses to Virginia (in OT) and Notre Dame. SU’s solidly “in” the NCAA Tournament field at this point — at least based on current bracketology projections. But what about the ACC Tournament coming up next weekend? To start, here are the ACC standings, plus the upcoming game for each team: Virginia Cavaliers (3-1): vs. Marist Syracuse Orange...
How to complete Syracuse’s 2022 non-conference schedule

How to complete Syracuse’s 2022 non-conference schedule

We’re not THAT far ahead, when you think about it. Recent developments (Western Michigan, Colgate) have completed the Syracuse Orange’s 2020 football schedule, which is great. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what needs to be done to get SU in a better place with scheduling. Looking ahead, we have 2020 and 2021 done, and 2023 is done in terms of FBS opponents (the fourth foe will almost undoubtedly be from the FCS). But 2022 in particular has just two opponents scheduled — Purdue and Notre Dame, both at home — so two more are needed to finish the...
Syracuse 2019 NFL Draft profile: Offensive tackle Koda Martin

Syracuse 2019 NFL Draft profile: Offensive tackle Koda Martin

The Orange only had Martin for a single season, but he was able to put his mark on the program. Certainly you’ve noticed the uptick in quality for the Syracuse Orange football program lately. Some of that’s measurable in terms of things like wins (obviously) and season ticket sales. Another way is in terms of players with a chance to get selected in the NFL Draft. With that event coming up on Thursday, April 25, we wanted to profile Syracuse players that will warrant consideration this year. We’ve covered some potential draftees over the week with Eric Dungey, Jamal Custis, Cody...
Syracuse 2019 NFL Draft profile: Defensive tackle Chris Slayton

Syracuse 2019 NFL Draft profile: Defensive tackle Chris Slayton

Can Chris Slayton get drafted higher than any Syracuse player in half a decade? The Syracuse Orange football program has only seen two former players drafted since 2014 and both (Zaire Franklin in 2018, Riley Dixon in 2016) went in the seventh round . We’ll find out on Thursday, April 25 if SU has better luck in this year’s NFL Draft, but we’re profiling Syracuse players who may hear their name called. Previous profiles have included Jamal Custis, Eric Dungey and Cody Conway. Today, we look at Chris Slayton. Name: Chris Slayton Position: Defensive Lineman Height: 6-foot-4 Weight: 307...
Spring game gives early look at improved depth for Syracuse

Spring game gives early look at improved depth for Syracuse

After the spring season, it’s always worth an assessment of the depth chart and how deep it really is. For the Syracuse Orange football team, the spring gives a chance to see what they have left from top to bottom on their roster, but it also can lead to some new issues arising. Having the entire squad back and practicing allows you to integrate some of the early enrollees, and take note of where your returning underclassmen are in their development. The Orange have come a long way in the development of a deeper squad under the watch of coach Dino Babers, but according to Babers...
Podcast: How the Syracuse #BRAND sausage gets made

Podcast: How the Syracuse #BRAND sausage gets made

An in-depth look at how uniforms and brand identities are created and implemented. With Dan under the weather this week, we headed to TNIAAM’s very deep bench to pull from our staff of #disloyalidiots for a capable replacement. We wound up with Andy, who not only did his best Dan impression from a beer perspective, but also shared a lot more about how Nike contracts work (and how the Syracuse Orange’s new one could function) than we knew previously. Some of the larger topics this week: Even without Dan, we still start by talking Mets How the ACC Network needs to televise spring...
ACC Women’s Lacrosse Tournament Preview: Who are Syracuse’s possible opponents?

ACC Women’s Lacrosse Tournament Preview: Who are Syracuse’s possible opponents?

The field’s not finalized yet, but we’re close. The Syracuse Orange women’s lacrosse team finished the regular season on Tuesday night (with a strong win over Cornell), but the season isn’t over yet. There’s still the ACC Tournament next week, and then the NCAA Tournament a couple weeks later. So who will the Orange play to kick off the ACC Tourney? Well, it’ll be either Virginia or Virginia Tech for certain. I’m going to start with the current standings in the ACC and then break down the scenarios for a couple of key games this weekend. Boston College: 6-0 (plays Louisville...
Syracuse women’s lacrosse beats Cornell, 16-13

Syracuse women’s lacrosse beats Cornell, 16-13

Orange outlast the Big Red to enter postseason on a high note. For the second straight game, the No. 5/5 Syracuse Orange women’s lacrosse team (14-3, 5-2 ACC) found itself in a hole early on. The Orange slowly managed to dig itself out of the deficit and hold on to beat a pesky Cornell Big Red squad 16-13 on Tuesday evening in the Dome. With this regular season finale, SU has eight days to prepare for the ACC Tournament which will start next Thursday. The Big Red (8-5) crashed Senior Night in the Dome in quick fashion. Ellie Walsh took a pass from Olivia Jensen in the middle of the fan...
Report: Syracuse schedules Western Michigan for 2020, 2023

Report: Syracuse schedules Western Michigan for 2020, 2023

We’re not done with the Broncos just yet. Ask and you shall receive, apparently. Exactly one week after we mentioned that the 2020 football schedule didn’t have many options and that the Western Michigan Broncos were on the short list, it appears the Syracuse Orange have gone ahead and locked them in, according to the Athletic’s Matt Fortuna. There are no dates currently attached to that news, but based on the openings for both schools, opening weekend is a potential option for 2020 (at WMU), or it could wind up elsewhere in September. For 2023, the Broncos are booked for week one (at...

Syracuse 2019 NFL Draft profile: Offensive tackle Cody Conway

One of the unsung heroes of the 10-win campaign. There’s a chance he may find some time on Sundays in the future Certainly you’ve noticed the uptick in quality for the Syracuse Orange football program lately. Some of that’s measurable in terms of things like wins (obviously) and season ticket sales. Another way is in terms of players with a chance to get selected in the NFL Draft. With that event coming up on Thursday, April 25, we wanted to profile Syracuse players that will warrant consideration this year. We’ve covered some skilled positions in the past two days with Eric Dungey...

Syracuse football 2019 opponent preview: Liberty Flames

SO wish we weren’t playing this game. Alas... With spring practice officially wrapped up, it’s only fair that we start talking about the Syracuse Orange’s actual 2019 football opponents. Perhaps you’re not as excited since it’s only April. But since Syracuse won 10 games last year, and I run this place... we’re talking about them anyway. The Orange have plenty of challenges ahead — some of those greater than others. Today, we take a look at the first hurdle: Liberty Flames School: Liberty University Mascot: Flames #BRAND Slogan: #RiseWithUs Alternate #BRAND Slogan Suggestions:...
Syracuse basketball recruiting update

Syracuse basketball recruiting update

Photo @TiptonEdits | twitter Less than two weeks ago, the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team picked up a commitment from Netherlands native Jesse Edwards, the fifth member of SU’s 2019 recruiting class alongside Joe Girard, Brycen Goodine, John Bol Ajak and Quincy Guerrier. At this juncture, it’s likely that Syracuse is done recruiting for the class of ‘19 and will now look to enroll its incoming freshman class for the early summer session. It’s been announced that Syracuse basketball will take a preseason tour to Italy in August. In order for players to meet eligibility...
