Syracuse football: DC Tony White reportedly leaving for Nebraska

Photo by Michael Allio/Icon Sportswire via The founder of the Mob is headed to the Big Ten. The Syracuse Orange are going bowling in large part due to its defense. Ever since Tony White joined the program in 2020, the Orange defense has consistently ranked in the top metrics in the ACC. The 3-3-5 is getting adopted more and more throughout college football and White has steadily grown his profile since transforming the Syracuse defense. Unfortunately, he now leaves Central New York as ESPN’s Pete Thamel reports that White is moving to Nebraska to become the...

Syracuse football: Linton enters transfer portal, three offers extended

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports Selfishly we want one for the meme potential The Syracuse Orange football team lost another member of the two-deep yesterday. Defensive end/linebacker Steve Linton entered the transfer portal. Linton had 22 tackles last season including 3.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries. His speed on the edge was often utilized in passing situations and the hope is that some of Syracuse’s younger defensive ends will be able to step into that role in 2023. We’ve also learned that the Orange have offered three transfers: Elijah Jeudy, defensive...

Syracuse men’s basketball: ball movement was excellent vs Oakland

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports It was a lot of fun to watch The Syracuse Orange didn’t start last night’s game as we hoped. Shot selection was an issue and the team was struggling with an inferior Oakland squad. That changed when Syracuse started getting everyone involved on offense. A 20-0 run to close the half carried over into the 2nd half with everyone getting involved in sharing the ball. FINAL: Cuse cruises over Oakland 95-66. 33 bench points as Symir Torrence & Malik Brown each put in career-highs, all in the second half. 26 assists, most since Dec. ‘16...

Syracuse football: first down offense in 2022

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports Outside of a bad stretch the offense took a bit step forward The Syracuse Orange are preparing for their bowl game so we’ll take some time over these next couple of weeks to look back at 2022 and look ahead to 2023. All year long we’ve looked at the first-down offense to see if the Orange were able to put themselves into position to keep the defense off-balance while setting themselves up for manageable 2nd and 3rd down situations. Overall averaging 6.8 yards on first down is a positive sign. The Orange would be at 6.11 yards per...

In what marked the beginning of a six-game homestand, Syracuse handled Oakland 95-66 as college basketball’s two longest tenured head coaches squared off.

Bennett/ After a slow start, SU’s offense exploded to blow past Oakland The Syracuse Orange started off in a close game with Oakland, but an 18-0 run to close out the half gave them all the momentum in a 95-66 victory over the Golden Grizzlies. ‘Cuse dominated on offense by shooting 58% from the field and 40% from deep. The win snaps SU’s three-game out-of-conference losing streak and gets them back over .500. Jesse Edwards, fresh off a career-best 22-point performance at Notre Dame, got the scoring started in this one by dropping down a lob from...

Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports The Orange look to not pull a Louisville at home. You’re telling me the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team loses to Colgate and Bryant at home but comes up with a win on the road against Notre Dame? Nothing makes sense anymore.

Amanda Vestri made her return to action with a new Syracuse school record in the 5000 with a 15:42.48. This broke the existing record...
