Syracuse signs Dino Babers to ‘long-term’ contract extension

Syracuse signs Dino Babers to ‘long-term’ contract extension

The Orange are prepared to have Babers on the sidelines well into the future. Ever since the Syracuse Orange secured bowl eligibility back in October, #PAYDINO has been very top-of-mind. To little surprise, it was a pretty important task for both SU Athletics and Dino Babers as well: He asked for faith.You've seen the evidence.@CoachBabersCuse signs long-term extension. - https://t.co/BYpIFDi3cS pic.twitter.com/PjbdsAyTXT— Syracuse Football (@CuseFootball) December 12, 2018 Syracuse is a private school, so we’re not getting any details on the financials, but obviously this adds...
#CuseTixForKids: We’re already almost halfway there

#CuseTixForKids: We’re already almost halfway there

Impressive first day or so of work, Orange fans. As you know by now, the Syracuse Orange are headed to the Camping World Bowl to face the West Virginia Mountaineers on December 28. The game’s in Orlando, and while a lot of you are going, there are plenty of us that can’t make it for one reason or another. Still, that doesn’t mean the rest of SU’s ticket allotment is going unused. #CuseTixForKids is back for another round, and after a little over a day, we’ve already raised nearly half ($6,517 as of this writing) of our goal of $14,444 to send underprivileged Orlando-area kids to...
SU vs. Georgetown will continue for as long as ACC scheduling allows (LINKS)

SU vs. Georgetown will continue for as long as ACC scheduling allows (LINKS)

Or at least that’s the thought after another thriller against the Hoyas. When the Syracuse Orange beat the Georgetown Hoyas 72-71 on Saturday, the primary focus was on the win. But shortly thereafter, the attention shifted to what happens next in this old Big East rivalry. The most recent contest was the last in a four-game series between the schools. Both Jim Boeheim and Patrick Ewing seemed open to there being more added for future years. However, the challenges of the ACC’s looming 20-game schedule do make it tougher, as Boeheim acknowledged. Others seem to see the writing on the...
Should we care about the outcome of the Camping World Bowl? No, but this process is important

Should we care about the outcome of the Camping World Bowl? No, but this process is important

Bowl games are weird. There’s a new set of rules so let’s get those out of the way now. I’m going to start by saying something that’s not always popular: The bowl game your team is playing in probably doesn’t matter, aside from the New Year’s Six. And that’s also true for the Syracuse Orange. Bowl games are tacked on almost a month after college football’s regular season ends, with the intent of making money for athletic conferences, schools, and bowl organizational committees by creating the closet thing to a playoff game for a sport who’s playoff only includes four...
Camping World Bowl: What would you get with a $400 Best Buy gift card?

Camping World Bowl: What would you get with a $400 Best Buy gift card?

You don’t have to play in the Camping World Bowl to spend like you did. Now that we know what Syracuse Orange players will receive as “bowl schwag” (Ed. note: goddamn everyone for incorrectly using “swag” so often) from the Camping World Bowl sponsors, it’s time for us to give you the TNIAAM slant. Getting a $400 Best Buy gift card as a college student seems like a pretty good deal, but how should they spend it? We put the question to our group in the Slack chat room to see how we’d spend it so let’s take a look: Andy Pregler Using this space to easily vouch for a PS4 and...

What was the most important play of Syracuse’s 2018 season? (LINKS)

There are quite a few choices available to you. The 2018 Syracuse Orange football season isn’t over just yet, though regardless of how it ends (win or lose to West Virginia in the Camping World Bowl), it’ll be considered a resounding success. There are numerous plays good and bad that got us to 9-3, obviously — so many that you’d be forgiven for not remembering all of them. However, Syracuse.com’s Stephen Bailey seemed to capture them all in his recap of SU’s 30 most important plays from the year. Without giving away the full list, I will agree with him on the No. 1 spot: Tommy...
Jalen Carey turning into stellar sub for Syracuse basketball

Jalen Carey turning into stellar sub for Syracuse basketball

At the very least, he’s a warm body to back up Frank Howard and Tyus Battle this year. Syracuse Orange men’s basketball’s freshman point guard Jalen Carey is special. It might not show up in the box score every night, but Carey is a gamer. He attacks the rim hard and pitches off no-look passes on offense, while challenging opposing players with his length and tenacity on the defense. The Harlem-native broke out at Madison Square Garden on November 15 when he poured in 26 points to go with 7 rebounds and 3 steals against UConn. He also played well the following night in a loss to...
Has Tyus Battle hit more big shots than any other SU players?

Has Tyus Battle hit more big shots than any other SU players?

It seems like Jim Boeheim didn’t have 100% reason to remember the name. After Saturday’s victory over the Georgetown Hoyas, Syracuse Orange Head Coach Jim Boeheim remarked about Tyus Battle’s ability to hit big shots late in games saying: “He’s made a lot of big shots,” he continued. “Probably as much, or more, than anybody we’ve ever had here in late game situations.” Syracuse has had plenty of clutch players under Boeheim and certainly Battle has shown the ability to make big shots, but has he done that more than anyone else in Boeheim’s tenure? Thanks to some...
#CuseTixForKids is Back to Turn the Camping World Bowl Orange

#CuseTixForKids is Back to Turn the Camping World Bowl Orange

We know you’ve been asking, and yes, we’re going to do this again. Four years ago, some dude named Sean tried raising money to send underprivileged kids to the Texas Bowl to watch the Syracuse Orange take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers. This amazing community (and plenty of outside help, too) ended up raising over $44,444 for the cause. You may remember it received some attention. Andy remembers meeting a kid we sent there. It was a big deal. Given all of that, we’re going to try and do it again. And this time, let’s make sure a bunch of kids in Orlando get to watch Eric Dungey...
Oshae Brissett’s dominance on the glass has propelled Syracuse during win streak

Oshae Brissett’s dominance on the glass has propelled Syracuse during win streak

It’s a rebounding party, and Oshae Brissett is hosting it! Tyus Battle may be the name in the headlines after his heroics against the Georgetown Hoyas, but Oshae Brissett’s recent play has helped propel the Syracuse Orange during their five-game winning streak. Brissett’s athleticism and versatility on offensive is what has made him a household name in under two years, but there is a certain aspect to his game that has really helped Syracuse’s struggling offense this year: offensive rebounds. Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports With the lack of consistent shooting,...

Boeheim puts deadline on Howard fixing struggles (LINKS)

The senior’s been a key part of Syracuse’s improvement, though his own numbers have fallen short. The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team is 5-0 since Frank Howard returned to the lineup, but his individual statistics haven’t really been indicative of that same success. In those five games, he’s averaging just four points, 1.2 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game (though with just one turnover per) in a little over 22 minutes. He’s also fouling at a much more significant clip, missing the end of Saturday’s win over Georgetown as a result. Orange coach Jim Boeheim has noticed...
Andre Szmyt, Andre Cisco make AP All-America Team

Andre Szmyt, Andre Cisco make AP All-America Team

Yet another season with Syracuse players receiving some big national honors. Under Dino Babers, it’s now become commonplace for the Syracuse Orange football program to collect some national honors at the end of the season. And after going 9-3, 2018 ended up being no different. The AP All-America team was announced on Monday, including SU kicker Andre Szmyt on the first-team and safety Andre Cisco on the third-team. Szmyt becomes the first Orange player to earn first-team All-America honors since Dwight Freeney was a unanimous selection in 2001. This also makes the third straight season...

Syracuse ranked 25th in recent AP Poll

We’re back in the rankings! After sitting outside the top 25 the last three weeks, the Syracuse Orange made their triumphant return back into the AP Top 25. The Poll has them ranked 25th, with 118 points, a solid three points more than Nebraska, who sit right below the Orange. Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports Syracuse is one of six ACC teams in this week’s top 25, as the Duke Blue Devils (2), Virginia Cavaliers (6), Florida State Seminoles (10), North Carolina Tar Heels (12), and the Virginia Tech Hokies (13) join them. Syracuse likely wouldn’t have been back in the...

Should SU have fouled in final minute against Georgetown?

Should SU have fouled in final minute against Georgetown?

Boeheim made a gutsy call. Is it always the right one? There were 36.3 seconds remaining and the Syracuse Orange trailed the Georgetown Hoyas 71-70 in its matchup in the Carrier Dome on Saturday afternoon. Georgetown’s Jagan Mosely collected a Tyus Battle miss to give the Hoyas possession of the ball — a 6.3-second difference between shot clock and game clock. Jim Boeheim had a decision to make: foul and send Mosely to the free throw line for two shots or defend without fouling and try to get a stop. Boeheim threw his hands into the air, telling his team not to foul. Mosely walked the...
