  • Orange::44: The 2019 Orange::44 Football Season Preview

    Syracuse is back, which means Orange::44 fires back up for the upcoming football season. John and I give our season previews, just in time for the season to be back in session.

    Brian's Season Preview

    The Orange earned their first ten win season since 2001 last year. Now the Orange are back on the radar. No team will be overlooking Syracuse this season. But Syracuse has a chance to really make an impression on College Football. One year can be dismissed as a fluke (not that anyone is doubting Dino Babers at this point), but two years in a row proves actual success and improvement.

  • Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician: Syracuse football film review: Episode 5 of 'La Familia'

    In case you missed it, Syracuse Orange football is joining the ranks of Netflix and Facebook in the #content game, creating a web series called 'La Familia." You can check out episode 1, episode 2, episode 3, & episode 4 recaps here. Our episode 5 review is below!

    We open with lineman Airon Servais at 6:46 a.m. as he heads out to practice. Because student-athlete.

    Anyways, Servais drops a nugget that all players HAVE to be taped or braced up for any practice, and he has Tim Pike do it every time.

  • Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician: Ifeatu Melifonwu could play critical role in elevating Syracuse secondary even more

    Going into this season, a lot of the focus for the Syracuse Orange defense will be on the young linebacker group and how they come along quickly -- especially against the run. However, one big change going into this year will be at cornerback, where Ifeatu Melifonwu appears poised to grab the starting spot opposite Christopher Fredrick.

    Syracuse.com spoke to Dino Babers about as much this week, and it seems like SU's pretty high on the redshirt sophomore corner -- which makes sense since he managed to vault over senior Scoop Bradshaw on the depth chart.

  • Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician: Why the Syracuse Orange will finish 7-5 in 2019

    Ed. Note -- As has become (a beloved?) tradition, TNIAAM writers will spend the week telling you why this year's Syracuse football team will finish with a specific record. Predictions get better as we progress, so hopefully you're done lobbing scorn at us by Wednesday or Thursday.

    Wednesday: 7-5 (Steve)

    Thursday: 8-4 (Andy)

    Friday: 9-3 (Some guy Sean)

    Over the past few seasons, predicting what a Syracuse Orange football team would do in the preseason may have been based on shaking a magic 8-Ball.

  • Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician: Get to Know Your Orange Man: #31, Geoff Cantin-Arku

    Position: Linebacker

    Year: Freshman

    Height: 6'4"

    Weight: 224

    Hometown: Levis, Que.

    High School: Cegep Garneau

    2018 stats: Collected 66 tackles -- five TFLs -- plus five interceptions with Cegep Garneau last season.

    2019 projections: There aren't a ton of linebackers on this roster right now, so don't rule out Geoff's ability to see the field this year. But the fact that he was a summer enrollee could make him more likely to redshirt.

    How'd he get here?

  • Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician: Get to Know Your Orange Man: #27, RB Garrison Johnson

    Position: Running Back

    Year: Freshman

    Height: 5'10"

    Weight: 237 lbs.

    Hometown: Rosharon, Texas

    High School: Manvel

    2018 stats: For the fall 2018 season, as a senior, Johnson tallied 1,500 yards on the ground, 300 yards in the air and 28 touchdowns. I'm mildly surprised that he didn't put up 30, just to keep everything as a round number.

    2019 projections: He'll be a redshirt candidate in a very crowded backfield, but can get into the strength and conditioning program and see where on the roster that he's setting himself up for in the future.

  • Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician: Syracuse football 2019 position preview: Special teams

    The 2019 Syracuse Orange football season is nearly here, and with that, we've arrived at our final position group preview of the summer.

    Each week leading up to this season, we've been profiling one group and every player on the roster this fall. Last week, we examined what should be a pretty impressive and deep collection of Orange defensive backs. We close with:

    <strong>Special Teams</strong>

    It wasn't too long ago that Syracuse special teams was an afterthought. With no dedicated coordinator for the group, and disastrous results, it usually did more harm than good for the Orange -- aside from punting, of course, which has actually been pretty rock solid for much of the last decade at least.

  • Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician: Syracuse football opens 2019 ranked No. 22 in preseason AP Poll

    The first AP Poll of the 2019 football season is here, and the Syracuse Orange find themselves in the top 25. The Orange come in at No. 22, the same ranking they have in the Preseason Coach's Poll.

    This is the Orange's first time in the Preseason Poll since 1998, when they were No. 17, and the 15th time they've been ranked in the AP Preseason Poll in program history (for reference). Notably, in six of those, SU would not finish the season ranked at all. However, the lowest ranking (25th in 1991) wound up with an 11th-ranked squad to end the year.

  • Official Site of the Orange: Syracuse #22 in AP Preseason Poll

    Share:

    SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The Orange football team is No. 22 in the Associated Press Preseason Top 25 poll, released today by the wire service. This season marks the first time since 1998 that Syracuse, which is also No. 22 in the preseason Amway Coaches Poll, will open the year as a nationally-ranked team.

    Syracuse earned 209 points in the AP rankings to claim the spot between No. 21 Iowa State (302 points) and No. 23 Washington State (200). The Orange are one of two Atlantic Coast Conferences teams in the poll. The other is defending national champion Clemson, which starts the year at No.

  • Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician: SB Nation FanPulse Preseason Top 25: Syracuse snubbed on first ballot

    Over the last month, we've invited you to participate in SBNation's NCAA Fan Pulse (and it's not too late to sign up if you haven't). Bow we have the first FanPulse results to share with you.

    Here is the pre-season top 25 as determined by fans across the country. A warning: They're all #disloyalidiots.

    You'll notice that college football fans feel that the Syracuse Orange aren't deserving of a top 25 ranking. I guess most of them feel like last year was a fluke or that the loss of Eric Dungey will set the Orange back.
