Will COVID Outbreak Force Syracuse to Forfeit ACC Games?
Will COVID Outbreak Force Syracuse to Forfeit ACC Games?
Jim Boeheim and his Syracuse Orange have struggled out of the gate this year. Losses to Colgate, VCU and Georgetown certainly have not been highlights on their road to a 5-5 record to start the season. A legitimate COVID outbreak has forced the program to be put 'on pause' since December 11th. With their 2nd game of ACC schedule just ahead, the Orange were in danger of possibly forfeiting conference games. Syracuse defeated Florida State 63-60 in Tallahassee on December 4th in there only ACC match-up so far.
Siena and St. Rose Hoops Exhibition Should be a Tradition
Siena and St. Rose Hoops Exhibition Should be a Tradition
Playing Division I opponents in exhibition games is nothing new for the College of St. Rose basketball program. The Division II program, nestled in Pine Hills section of the City of Albany, has made the I-90 trip to the Carrier Dome to take on Jim Boeheim's Syracuse Orange for a preseason matchup. Trust me, Boeheim doesn't waste time. If an exhibition opponent isn't going to challenge his players like he needs, they aren't playing his team in the preseason. That is why I could never understand why Siena nor UAlbany would play St. Rose in an exhibition.

Can Frank Sinatra Sing the Buffalo Bills to the Super Bowl?
Can Frank Sinatra Sing the Buffalo Bills to the Super Bowl?
Frank Sinatra passed away at the age of 83 more than 23 years ago, so when Matt Parrino from Syracuse.com was on The Drive with Charlie & Dan on Monday, I was pretty shocked to hear him say that Josh Allen was "listening to Frank Sinatra and some old school music to chill," I have to say I was pretty surprised. My mom was one of those women that would swoon over "Old Blue Eyes" but Josh Allen?

An Optimist's Skeptical Eye on Name, Likeness, Image and the NCAA
It's hard not to be skeptical of the NCAA or some of the larger conferences, aka the Power 5 schools, when it comes to things like, well, paying student-athletes above and beyond their tuition, room and board and more recently, a "cost of attendance" stipend. Yes, they are institutes of higher learning but over the years even some of the most prestigious universities in the United States, such as Notre Dame, Stanford, Duke and even Harvard have been marred by athletic scandals. Then add in the football and basketball powerhouses that occupy your tv screen every week and the list of improprieties would make your head spin.
