Orange Fizz – Daily Syracuse Recruiting News & Team Coverage


Knockout Punch

Even lithe Andy Rautins brought the bang to this brawl, knocking out Tory Jackson with a wicked elbow.

The march to madness, the fight for the Final Four, the trot to the tournament (too much?)… it’s on!

With the physically impressive road win over Notre Dame last night, the Orange finished up 3-0 on its most grueling road trip of the entire season.

Even lithe Andy Rautins brought the bang to this brawl, knocking out Tory Jackson with a wicked elbow and setting a dominating tone for the Orange.

As The Fizz has documented in victories over Rutgers, West Virginia, and now the Fighting Irish, SU won’t face tougher test of games away from the Dome all season.

ESPN’s Andy Katz is lining up as one of the first to try and jinx Syracuse for March by saying the Orange could be a one-seed.

However, last night’s Texas loss at K-State should make Orange Nation a bit more comfortable.

You’re next Kentucky!

Mike Waters says the Orange won’t be adding any more players to the class of 2010, but with the way the team is playing now, how can they not stir interest in some still undecided big dogs?

Josh Selby may have floated on, but the rumors of Shaq Thomas off the radar? Let’s not count him out just yet.

ZagsBlog took an in depth look at him and other Fizz sources say there’s been nothing to indicate that Thomas is off the table for the Orange either.

Even as is stands, NorthStar Basketball has Syracuse with the 4th-ranked recruiting class for 2010.

Now if only the Orange could get some respect from guys like Gary Parrish of CBS Sports who puts SU 6th behind Duke.


There’s no better formula for success than to keep winning.

We’ll leave that up to the Per’fesser.
