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.
In our season finale episode, which has come much earlier than anticipated this year, we talk about Saturday’s loss to Duke, if Kaleb Joseph will ever be the answer at point guard, and we try our hand at some great Orange Trivia courtesy of the Professor, Brad Conner. Then, we name 5 positive things that came out of an otherwise disappointing Syracuse basketball season and predict where the program will be one year from now, on March 1, 2016.
After a disastrous loss to Pitt in front of 30,000 loyal fans in the Carrier Dome on Saturday, can the Syracuse Orange still get to 20 wins? Also, our thoughts on the Syracuse fan base, the Roosevelt “Bowie” fiasco, Kaleb Joseph as next year’s starting point guard and our chances against Duke in Cameron later this week. Also, the top Orange double-double men of all-time, how Rakeem Christmas is stacking up against other ACC big men, and the 5 things we hate most about being in the ACC.
A special postgame edition live after Syracuse’s 70-57 victory over Florida State on Sunday night in the Carrier Dome. We discuss the impact of potentially losing Chris McCullough, if Rakeem Christmas is the best center in the country, has Trevor Cooney finally arrived, and what’s up with all the Sunday night games in the ACC? In Conner’s Corner Trivia, can you name the last Syracuse center to lead the team in scoring? Also, an interview with former teammate and high school chum of Jim Boeheim.
For one half of basketball, the Syracuse Orange looked like they’d finally put it all together, for the second half, it looked like they couldn’t be worse. We recap the narrow victory over Virginia Tech in Blacksburg on Saturday and look into the crystal ball at what some current Orange player’s senior nights could be like. How will some of these guys be remembered when they’re career on the hill is over? Finally, some great trivia focused on our performance against other ACC schools in our history.

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team tried to get things back on track with wins over Colgate and Long Beach State at the Dome and will face Cornell on New Year’s Eve before forging ahead into the ACC schedule. We talk all about it, predict the outcome of our ACC season, discuss Jim Boeheim’s autobiography, and tackle some Orange Trivia.
The Syracuse Orange survived a late rally from Louisiana Tech in the Carrier Dome on Sunday evening to snap a 2-game losing skid. How happy are Syracuse fans with the win? Jim Sinicropi and Brad Conner discuss if Kaleb Joseph should start, if Trevor Cooney is better than we thought, and why Tyler Roberson may be the missing piece. Also, in Conner’s Corner Trivia, can you name the out-of-conference opponents Syracuse basketball has beaten the most in their history?
Dave Barnick is in-studio to talk about two Syracuse losses over the past week, on the road at Michigan and at home to St. John’s. What can Jim Boeheim do to get this team on the winning track heading towards the ACC schedule. Also, test your knowledge of SU basketball history with some great Orange trivia and do you still root for the old Big East teams?
After Tyler Ennis hit a miraculous buzzer-beater to lift Syracuse to 24-0, we compare the super-frosh to Pearl Washington, another Orange freshman phenom with a legendary last second heave. Also, C.J. Fair hits two of the most clutch jumpers you’ll ever see and Syracuse survives one of the biggest hurdles in the gauntlet that is their home stretch in the regular season.
With Syracuse’s inaugural ACC schedule underway, we talk about some of the oddities of our new southern conference and the lack of conference mates in this current top 25. With North Carolina coming to the Dome on Saturday with 5 losses, has this game lost some of it’s luster before it even begins? Also, some surprising statistics on The List segment.
We’ll recap the Orange’s huge win over Villanova in the Carrier Dome on Saturday as well as the Eastern Michigan game and take a look ahead at Syracuse’s ACC schedule. Things are going to feel a lot different this winter starting on Saturday against the Miami Hurricanes. We’ll take a look at Syracuse’s record against ACC teams and give you our pre-conference ACC rankings. Join us in-studio on a snowy, frigid night in upstate New York.
Syracuse is off to a 2-0 start to their 2013-14 campaign with wins over Cornell and Fordham. After seeing this season’s iteration of the Orange, are they better or worse than you thought they’d be? Also, is Dajuan Coleman ready to make an impact, who will be the leading rebounder on this team, and who’s taking the last shot? And how about this… it’s quite possible that the Big East or even the American Athletic Conference will have more NCAA Tournament bids than Syracuse’s new conference, the ACC.
