They are merely Fair Waiters, not great ones

Six games in and the puns have been laid on thick already when it comes to C J Fair. The ridiculous dunk last night led to a bunch of “Man, that was just unFair” and other obvious blobs of text. I thought to myself “I’m still waiting for the Waiters puns to start flying.” (For [...]

Orange Plus (or Minus)

I don’t take credit for this idea, it was fed to me by the Cuse Country brain trust. But I found it so interesting that I spent the better part of the week trying to make it happen.
The point is this: Hockey players are ranked by a simple statistic that counts up all the goals [...]

That was quick…

Mike Jones is leaving…  guess the man couldn’t handle the cold and snow or something. Oh, yeah, and the Orange are short-handed for the Pitt game tonight. Lovely.

Good and bad

If you don’t follow the link below to check out Orange 44’s St. Bonaventure preview, follow it to read Matt’s critique of the play of Mike Jones. Ooh, gas face!
Also, via TNIAAM, Eric Silver at College Hoops Net has nothing but love for Demetris Nichols, who he tabs as one of the most improved players [...]

mad love

One quick note about the Hofstra game, which Josh covered well. When Preston Shumpert was announced by the PA, he received a warm but brief round of applause from an appreciative audience.  Later on, when Kueth Duany was announced, the place absolutely erupted and Kueth got a standing ovation from the 18,000.
Strictly speaking, Shumpert had [...]

An eventful Saturday night

Before my thoughts on the Baylor game, in my unofficial capacity as SU-NBA chronicler I must mention the massive brawl between the Nuggets and the Knicks tonight, in which Carmelo was thoroughly involved (he punched Mardy Collins in the face). It’s likely he will get suspended for at least a few games. My assumption is [...]

Someone tell me what to think

Finished watching the game about an hour ago (on tape since I was busy earlier) and I still can’t figure out how I feel about it. I can’t remember seeing a team in any sport that can go from outstanding to putrid, from sharp to shitty, and then back again with no discernible reason. It [...]

I blame Craig Forth.

Now, I may be batshit insane, but allow me to explain. While watching Mookie’s seemingly endless series of volleyball taps and “hot potato” chucks on the offensive glass I begun to wonder: why won’t he simply grab an offensive rebound and dunk it on someone’s face, like any normal 6′10″, 260ish lb guy would? And [...]

atrocities in Western New York

At first I was excited to see that the Met’s channel, SNY, was finally contributing something positive to society by televising tonight’s SU game vs. Canisius. But given the competitive product put out on the floor by my guys tonight, I think I’d be a happier person not to have witnessed it. Though Syracuse “won” [...]

oral pleasure

Gotta love college hoops. #3 Kansas lost at home tonight to Oral Roberts. Doesn’t it seem like Kansas does something like this every year, regardless of who’s coaching? More importantly, there’s no other sport in the world where underdogs can get the kind of wins that Vermont and Oral Roberts got over the last few [...]
