FizzCast: Fizz Radio Announced, Axeman on SU’s Offense, Grant’s Home Visit

The latest Fresh FizzCast also happens to be our last strictly internet broadcast. But there‚Äôs a pretty good reason why Team Fizz’s weekly look at SU sports will no longer be a solely web endeavor. As you may have heard when D.A. and Brent Axe broke the news on the Score 1260 recently, we’re heading to radio, baby. Hoffman with the details:

“Starting this weekend, Saturday, 9:00 a.m., on The Score 1260 here in the Syracuse, you can listen to Orange Fizz Radio.”

Cue the applause and alert the FCC. After an (ahem) unconventional¬†three years of existence, the Orange Fizz’s comprehensive SU sports podcast is ready to move to radio – a media platform the entire staff has experience in.

The Score is the known as the Voice of the Central New York Sports fan, and The Fizz is looking forward to adding its own perspective to the station. Tune in from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. every Saturday.

And don’t worry if you enjoy downloading the podcast every week on iTunes. Can’t catch us live? Each Orange Fizz Radio show will be archived and downloadable on iTunes, same place where the FizzCasts have been available.

There was also major SU football discussion this week for Team Fizz, and basketball recruiting.

Hoff and I both agree the Orange needs to somehow muster at least the hint of a running game. I point out that if Syracuse wants to get Antwon Bailey going on the ground, it needs to use his receiving skills as a lightning rod.

“Antwon Bailey this year has … drum roll please … one reception for one yard. That is pathetic. He, if anything, is a better receiving back than a conventional running back. He should be getting just as many touches by reception as he does by handoff. That will get him more confident and open things up in terms of the running game.”

In anticipation of our debut this weekend on The Score 1260, we continued the football talk with Brent Axe of “On the Block,” which airs on The Score weekdays from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The Axeman concurs the Orange has to be more creative with both its senior captain at quarterback and featured running back.

“(The SU coaches) are so determined to make Bailey the traditional running back. Everything they have done with Bailey has been what you would do with a Delone Carter. I think they’re being a little stubborn with that. I think with a player like Bailey you have some flexibility, you have to do things a little bit differently, and you can’t be so bound and determined to just make him a traditional running back.”

Also featured in the FizzCast, Alex Plavin joined us to break down SU basketball’s recruitment of Maryland prospect Jerami Grant.

You can look forward to continued comprehensive recruiting coverage and in-depth SU sports conversation on Fizz Radio starting this Saturday. Let’s Fizz.
