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 [...]

Pro Wrapup Summer 2009

Boy, that was not fun. I guess I should have expected that, at some point in graduate school, I would be required to actually do some actual work. Had to put aside for several weeks months my fervent desire to update Josh Pace’s progress in Estonia, and spend time dissecting the nuances of Martin’s Axiom. [...]

Months late (Pro Update 2-20-09)

Holy crap, you guys! It’s back!

Yes indeed. For those who rely on Cuse Country to keep you informed about the comings, goings, and doings of former SU basketball players, it has been a long, empty winter. Lucky for you, the planets have aligned properly to allow me, once again, to drop more knowledge on you [...]

The “Get Pumped” Countdown: #8

To the Chinese, the number 8 is symbolic of good luck and fortune. (It’s no coincidence that the Beijing Olympics opened on the night of 8/8/08, at 8:08:08pm.) Syracuse fans have a choice. The number 8 can either represent Cody Catalina or the #8 reason to get pumped for basketball season:
#8: Insane Roster Flexibility

“And for my next trick, I will run a marathon on my hands.”

I can’t believe Syracuse won that game. I’m nearly speechless. (Sorry, “nearly” means I can still blather in a post about it.)
I’m just stunned that this team could lose ANOTHER player, yet somehow find a way to win a game. Any game. Even a game of pick-up sticks — with our luck, Arinze would [...]

Uh-Oh

Devendorf injured? Wright AWOL?
Time to earn your scholarship, Jake Presutti.

Feeling it

Don’t know about you all, but I’m starting to get seriously excited about this team. I mean, Greene, Flynn, Jackson and Jardine were electrifying players before they got here, sure. And we’d talked about how this year’s freshmen would likely be better than last year’s seniors from the first jump ball. But what I read [...]

A New Era Begins

Admit it, it’s snuck up on you. You’ve already forgotten about Arinze Onuaku’s destruction of property and possibly even about Andy Rautins’ destruction of ligaments. You may even have let slip from your mind the very existence of Kristof Ongenaet (I wonder if they’re calling him K-Ong yet). Well, NO MORE! Put away your fantasy [...]

catastrophe

I spent the last four days on a mini-vacation in LA, and was somewhat disconnected from my usual internet news sources. So there I was Saturday afternoon, lounging in front of my friends’ ginormous LCD HDTV, working off the hangover from last night’s misadventures at Les Deux (yes, seriously), when I happily stumbled upon the [...]

Younger Every Year

The Post-Standard has reported in the past few days that SU has verbal commitments from two players in the class of 2008 (a.k.a. the post-Josh Wright Era): Kris Joseph and James Southerland. OrangeFan (who has his finger firmly on the pulse of SU recruiting) has some prime info and links in his post about Joseph. [...]
