After splitting a pair of games this past week against Virginia Tech and Boston College, Syracuse readies to face two ranked opponents this week. First, North Carolina on Big Monday, then, a visit to Notre Dame on Saturday. Is this the last chance for Syracuse to get their NCAA resume back-on-track? We talk all about it along with a fantastic segment of Conner’s Corner where we try our hands at some 1990’s Syracuse basketball trivia.
Syracuse University sophomore and FingerLakes1.com contributor Keith Bremer is in-studio to talk about the Orange basketball team’s dramatic turnaround over the past week, Jim Boeheim’s showdown with Bud Poloquin during Saturday’s postgame press conference, and what the future may hold for Frank Howard after John Gillon stakes a claim to the point.
The new year has arrived with the Syracuse Orange basketball team facing a stretch of futility that in unprecedented for Syracuse fans and head coach Jim Boeheim after getting throttled by St. John’s, Boston College, and virtually any quality opponent that is put in front of them. Can the Orange turn it around? Why have things gone wrong? We take it all on with an expanded Big Five Topics (we go with 10 this week) and look at other frustrating seasons historically at Syracuse during Conner’s Corner Trivia.
After Saturday’s loss to Georgetown in the Carrier Dome, has Syracuse hit rock bottom? Has the move to the ACC hurt Jim Boeheim’s basketball program? Jim Sinicropi and Brad Conner discuss the sorry state of the four-loss Orange and share our fondest memories of Dwayne “The Pearl” Washington.
The Upstate Orange Podcast will take the week off on Christmas Day next Sunday to return with our next live episode on January 1st at 9:15 pm EST.
