What might Syracuse’s 2019 schedule look like when it’s released?

What might Syracuse’s 2019 schedule look like when it’s released?

IT’S COMING OUT TODAY! There are few days on the Syracuse Orange sports calendar that make me happier than football schedule release day. I know, predictable and maybe a little strange. It’s fine. Coincidentally, that day is today. So before the full schedule is officially released at 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, we take some guesses about what the slate may look like. Saturday, August 31: at Liberty Flames Already confirmed. Syracuse kicks off the season on the road in Liberty’s first “official” FBS game. This is also to accommodate the Carrier Dome renovations a bit. Saturday,...

Syracuse football 2018 report card: Linebackers

Syracuse football 2018 report card: Linebackers

A rough start led to a much better finish. The Syracuse Orange football program finished 10-3 in 2018 — the first time SU’s done as much since 2001. So while these postseason reviews typically end up skewing toward what went wrong, hopefully this is the first of many seasons in a row where we get to happily recap what went very right. Despite winning 10 games, though, it’s not as if things were perfect. These “report cards” serve as an assessment of both good and bad. Looking back at the past season, we’re going position by position, to see what worked, what didn’t and how...

Paschal Chukwu can tell everybody that he beat Duke

Paschal Chukwu can tell everybody that he beat Duke

Calm, cool and collected after not receiving a single minute two games ago against Clemson, Paschal Chukwu dominated the front court and played a crucial role in beating the No. 1 team in the nation. It wasn’t smooth. Through the game of Paschal Chukwu’s life, he heaved rebounds to the perimeter while falling out of bounds. He attempted a tip-in above the rim that got called back. In the final seconds of regulation, his seemingly clean defense on Zion Williamson nearly handed Duke a one-point win on free throws if the Blue Devils’ superstar converted on both. Instead, the Syracuse...

TNIAAP: Syracuse, vs. Duke upset live-cast

TNIAAP: Syracuse, vs. Duke upset live-cast

You wanted more basketball, so now you’re getting it. Apparently some listeners felt like we didn’t talk enough about the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team. So... now you get a live podcast of the second half of the Duke game, as we go from thinking SU is going to lose, to picturing an upset, to expecting a loss once again, and then wondering if the offense can just look like this forever. Some of the larger topics this week: Watching Frank Howard come back from the dead We started the show seconds after Elijah Hughes’s insane shot Is it reasonable to think that the Orange...

Aviana Goode leads Syracuse Track & Field at Ramapo Opener

Aviana Goode leads Syracuse Track & Field at Ramapo Opener

The junior took 1st in two events The Syracuse Orange track and field teams officially started their season last month but with finals and the semester break it’s more of a pre-season. Last week several Syracuse athletes went to the Armory in New York City to compete in the Ramapo Opener. Junior Aviana Goode led the way with victories in the 60m hurdles and high jump at the meet. Goode ran the final of the hurdles in a time of 8.83 to cruise to the win. Her winning high jump was 5’7” (1.7 meters) which was two inches ahead of the runner-up. The Syracuse 4x400m relay did not finish...

Syracuse basketball’s Tyus Battle shines in 95-91 overtime win at Duke: ‘This is the stuff you dream about growing up’

Syracuse basketball’s Tyus Battle shines in 95-91 overtime win at Duke: ‘This is the stuff you dream about growing up’

Tyus came through in the clutch once more and lifted Syracuse to a win at Duke. Durham, N.C. — With the Syracuse Orange trailing 11-0 to Duke early in the first half at Cameron Indoor, Jim Boeheim was forced to call a timeout less than three minutes into the game. He was getting shaky play from his point guards as Frank Howard picked up a pair of quick fouls and Jalen Carey picked up a pair of quick turnovers. A Zion Williamson made free throw then gave Duke a 12-0 lead before Tyus Battle began to take over. By the second media timeout, Battle was running point guard for Syracuse. Tre...

Heim Time: Jim Boeheim compares Duke’s Zion Williamson to Charles Barkley but just ‘not as fat’

Heim Time: Jim Boeheim compares Duke’s Zion Williamson to Charles Barkley but just ‘not as fat’

Boeheim expects a rebuttal from Barkley. Durham, N.C. — While his Syracuse Orange squad upset the Duke Blue Devils last night in overtime, Jim Boeheim had some fascinating words and a comparison for freshman sensation Zion Williamson. Widely expected to be the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft this summer, Williamson has taken college basketball by storm as a unique above-the-rim talent who shows no mercy at the rim. Williamson isn’t just a dunker though — he’s capable of running a fast break, weaving in and out of defenders with the dribble while also showing some flash on his...

Syracuse basketball players on Marek Dolezaj’s charge from Duke’s Zion Williamson: ‘Call 911’

Syracuse basketball players on Marek Dolezaj’s charge from Duke’s Zion Williamson: ‘Call 911’

Marek Bulldozedzaj. Durham, N.C. — With nine minutes to play in the first half, Zion Williamson corralled a rebound off a Syracuse Orange missed shot and quickly dribbled the ball up court. The only thing standing between he and the rim was Syracuse’s 6-foot-10, 180 lb sophomore, Marek Dolezaj, The crowd lit up with oohs and aahs, reveling in what was about to come next. Williamson was about to put Dolezaj on a poster. But Dolezaj stepped in front of Williamson, stood his ground and drew and offensive foul. The sophomore from Slovakia took the brunt of the collision though, giving up...

As always, you don’t know anything about Syracuse basketball

As always, you don’t know anything about Syracuse basketball

I’m including myself there too, don’t worry. Following the Syracuse Orange’s embarrassing loss to Georgia Tech on Saturday, I thought about leading off Sunday morning with an article about “WHAT IT MEANS” for SU and their ability to make the NCAA Tournament this season. It seemed inevitable that Syracuse was going to lose to Duke given the short turnaround trip to Durham on Monday night — especially given the Blue Devils’ sizeable talent advantage over SU (and most teams). A loss would’ve dropped the Orange to 11-6 overall and 2-2 in the ACC. No one expected us to be able...

Video recap: TNIAAM teams up with the Daily Orange to talk Syracuse basketball’s win at Duke

Nunes x D.O.!? Durham, N.C. — Just when you think you’ve figured out Syracuse Orange basketball out, you haven’t. And just when you think you’ve figured out Syracuse media, you also haven’t. As Nunes is usually a one man army at Syracuse games, we’re limited in the capacity for video recaps so we snagged the talent over at the Daily Orange and teamed up after Syracuse’s 95-91 overtime win last night inside Cameron Indoor Stadium. Anyhow, representing the D.O. are Matthew Gutierrez, Charlie DiSturco and Ally Moreo. Guti and Charlie are on the beat while Ally is on photo. If you...
