The ACC Football Transfer Market: Part 2

The ACC Football Transfer Market: Part 2

It’s Transfer Boogaloo With less than 100 days until the start of the season we want to spend the time getting everyone in the proper frame of mind before kick-off. What better way then to embrace debate and we’re going to do so by giving college football a transfer market like professional soccer. In order to keep some sense of structure to this hypothetical the rules are we get to pick one player from every other ACC school that we would add to next year’s Syracuse Orange roster. We’re going to break this up over several days and we’ll go in alphabetical order to avoid any...
Get to Know Your Orange Man: #72, C, Andrejas Duerig

Get to Know Your Orange Man: #72, C, Andrejas Duerig

Let’s learn about one of the men in the trenches. Name: Andrejas Duerig Position: Center Year: Redshirt Senior Height: 6’3” Weight: 308 Hometown: Lowell, Ind. High School: Mount Carmel 2018 stats: Duerig played in all 13 games for the Orange, primarily on special teams as the punt protector. If you recall, that special teams unit was pretty darn good. 2019 projections: Expect Duerig to reprise his role, as special teams consistency is probably one of the strengths of this team. Should other members of the offensive line start falling to injuries, he should join the rotation there...
Syracuse football 2019 opponent preview: Duke Blue Devils

Syracuse football 2019 opponent preview: Duke Blue Devils

Unfortunately, this just reminded me that the Giants picked Daniel Jones in the top 10, and now I want to vomit. Last week, we took a look at the “dudes” of Boston College, and how they’d match up against the Syracuse Orange this year despite losing most of their offensive line and the players that made their defense reasonably good last year. Steve Addazio always seems to find a way to win exactly seven games, but it maybe a challenge for the Eagles to even hit that number this year. Perhaps you’re just now starting to entertain looking at this year’s opponents, since it’s only...

High School: Exeter 2018 stats: Redshirt season 2019 projections: Froumy will be competing for time on special teams and trying to make the two-deep at tackle. How’d he get here?: Wil chose Syracuse over UMass, Bryant, and New Hampshire What’d recruiting sites say?: Three stars from 24/7 and two from Rivals. Money Quote: While he was preparing for his senior year at Exeter Wil talked about his...
Get to Know Your Orange Man: #75, OC/OG Sam Heckel

Get to Know Your Orange Man: #75, OC/OG Sam Heckel

Heckel looks to move back into a starting spot depending on how the big men shuffle out in the trenches. Name: Sam Heckel Position: Offensive line (Center/Guard) Year: Redshirt junior Height: 6’4” Weight: 300 Hometown: Waukesha, Wisconsin High School: Waukesha West 2018 stats: Played in all 13 games, logging 444 snaps at guard. He was also the primary backup at center, and was a starter at left guard for all 12 games in the 2017 season. 2019 projections: Heckel should immediately have an impact on the line, and be a starter at center or guard, depending on what Dakota Davis does, and...

Get to Know Your Orange Man: #76, OT Qadir White

Name: Qadir White Position: Offensive line Year: Redshirt freshman Height: 6’7” Weight: 313 Hometown: Bronx, N.Y. High School: Cardinal Hayes 2018 stats: DNP 2019 projections: White worked some valuable time with the starters this spring, and has a shot to secure a backup position at one of the tackle positions or guard. It’s also important to notice he’s dropped over 20 pounds since last August. Given the overwhelming depth of the offensive line, White might have to wait until his redshirt sophomore year to see live action. How’d he get here?: White committed to Syracuse prior to...
Syracuse basketball looks to avoid consecutive NBA Draft classes without a pick in 20 years

Syracuse basketball looks to avoid consecutive NBA Draft classes without a pick in 20 years

The Orange have had 21 of its players drafted since 2000. It has never gone back-to-back years without a pick in that time. With the NBA Finals and most individual workouts for draft hopefuls in the rear view, the collective basketball world will shift its attention to the NBA Draft this week. (So long as Woj doesn’t drop anymore of these bombs). The draft will be held this Thursday in Brooklyn, N.Y., and the Syracuse Orange have two players hoping to hear their names called at the Barclays Center. Tyus Battle and Oshae Brissett will both have the opportunity be selected this week. As for...

Football Recruiting: Syracuse lands a pair of commits after camp

A Father’s Day weekend spent camping pays off with two commits for Dino Babers. Late Sunday night, Syracuse Orange football fans were greeted with great news as two players that spent their weekend in Central New York announced their intentions to play football there as well. Leon Lowery, a 3-star DE from New Jersey, and Justin Barron, a 3-star athlete from Connecticut became the latest Class of 2020 commits. Bleed orange baby!

Will Malachi Richardson receive a Raptors championship ring?

Will Malachi Richardson receive a Raptors championship ring?

Anderson Varejao played against the Cavaliers in 2016 and was offered a ring anyway. It’s up to the organizations. The Syracuse Orange have not had an alum receive a NBA championship ring since 1980 (Marty Byrnes). That could change this summer after the Toronto Raptors won the NBA Finals yesterday. Malachi Richardson, the former Orange standout wing from the 2016 Final Four team, played in 22 games for the Raptors. He watched along with the rest of the world, as Toronto traded him to the 76ers, who waived him shortly after in February. Typically teams give out rings to players who...
Syracuse Athletics and Nike extend their partnership

Syracuse Athletics and Nike extend their partnership

Checks over stripes, that’s what Boeheim likes Finally our long-suffering nightmare has ended (or is it just beginning?) as the Syracuse Orange have announced an extension of their partnership with Nike. You know we love talking about uniforms around here, and for the last few years there has been discussion about the Orange leaving Nike for Under Armour or Adidas. Well today’s announcement puts those rumors to rest as the Syracuse/Nike partnership which began in 1982 with the Orange basketball team will continue for the near future. Syracuse teams, coaches and staff will use...

High School: Downington East 2018 stats: Did not play in any games. 2019 projections: Clark will likely be down the depth chart again this season, after not seeing any time this year and the freshmen jumping him in the spring. How’d he get here?: The big man had offers from Penn State, Ohio State, Maryland (where he was a commit) and South Carolina among others. What’d recruiting sites say?:...

Which classes would we want to see Dino Babers teach?

I’m Professor Babers and this semester is going to be Smooth College coaches teaching classes is common at smaller programs but lately more P5 coaches have started joining the classroom. Washington State Cougars HC Mike Leach taught “Leadership Lessons in Insurgent Warfare & Football Strategy” in the spring and yesterday it was announced that Arizona State Sun Devils HC Herm Edwards would join the faculty of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. So what about Syracuse Orange HC Dino Babers? If SU approached Dino about teaching some classes in the off-season...

Get to Know Your Orange Man: #80, WR Taj Harris

Syracuse fans are excited to see Harris follow up a stellar freshman campaign. Name: Taj Harris Position: Kicker Year: (Redshirt) Sophomore Height: 6’2” Weight: 175 lbs. Hometown: Beverley, N.J. High School: Palmyra 2018 stats: After playing sparingly for the Syracuse Orange in the season’s opening weeks, Harris came on strong from the Clemson game and pushed his way into the starting lineup from there. He had 40 catches for 565 yards and three scores, while breaking SU freshman records for receptions and receiving yards. 2019 projections: Harris will start once again on the outside,...
