About Us

Cuse Country is a blog about Syracuse University sports. Mostly, it’s about the men’s basketball team, since scientific studies show that looking directly at the football team can damage your eyes and cause severe depression.

Before there was a blog, there were seemingly endless e-mail threads between the following people who are now Cuse Country’s principal contributors:

Tim Catts is a real live professional journalist in New York City. He doesn’t get to write about sports in his day job, however, so he does it here. He was born in Syracuse and graduated from Binghamton University in 2001.

Josh was born less than a mile from where the Carrier Dome now stands, and spent the next 18 years of his life breathing the fine Syracuse air — creating the kind of bond that can’t be broken, or even slightly diminished, by the fact of his now residing in the DC area. Josh follows the exploits of former Orangemen in the pro ranks (NBA and otherwise) so you don’t have to.

Andrew Garcia Phillips graduated from Syracuse University in 1997. He is an editor for Information Graphics at The Star-Ledger in New Jersey.

The Syracusan is Ethan Cramer-Flood, a born and raised Syracuse native who attended Nottingham High School in the ’90s but escaped afterward. His nickname comes from a previous blogging adventure, long before Cuse Country. Ethan lives in New York City for the most part, though he dabbles in Beijing, China.

Tom Mason was born and raised in Syracuse, and cites a 1981 trip to the upper deck of the Carrier Dome in the arms of his mother as his earliest recorded memory in life. He graduated from Syracuse University in 2001, and now works as a freelance documentary producer and cinematographer in New York City.
