Welcome to College Colors Day!

On the Friday before Labor Day, National College Colors Day encourages everyone to display their team spirit. Across the United States students, parents, family, fans, and alumni will be wearing their team colors. Be sure you’re celebrating by wearing your college team’s colors and apparel.

Team spirit has long been a foundation of cheering athletes to victory. Wearing the colors of the school as well as singing the school song goes along with the energy of the day. Not only does it bring back memories, but it carries on traditions. Sometimes, these traditions run deep, too.

Support your team and show your team spirit by wearing your college colors to the game or while watching it on TV. Rally the fans and show your team you know they will go for the win! Tailgating and pregame revelry are all part of the enjoyment of the season. Many alumni enjoy share memories of games from years past, especially the close ones, win or lose.

Former Syracuse basketball guard Andrew White traded to Knicks G League team (PS; Burrows)

Former Syracuse basketball guard Andrew White is coming back to New York, this time with the Knicks G League team.

The Boston Celtics G League team, the Maine Red Claws, traded White on Thursday to the Westchester Knicks.

White played for the Knicks during the 2019 Summer League after spending last season in the G League with the Red Claws. He played in 50 games and averaged 12.9 points per game while shooting 37.5 percent from the 3-point line in 2018.

He last played in the NBA in 2017-2018, appearing in 15 games with the Atlanta Hawks.

Now wait a goddamn minute here. What is Jim Boeheim up to? He can’t be going senile just yet, right? I mean part of me wants to chalk it up to that but at the same time we’re seeing Georgia Tech football get away from the triple option so I guess anything is possible

Georgia Tech's Got Me Thinking
Pictured: Georgia Tech new head football coach “Geoff Collins”Over the weekend I was flipping through a college football preview magazine, and got (rudely) reminded that Georgia Tech’s new head coach


Now I don’t want to do any previews or anything like that, because, well it’s pointless, it’s football season and no one really cares about college hoops right this minute. But this is too big of news to not talk about.

Syracuse running a 2-3 zone is a staple in college basketball. It’s up there with Duke having a hatable white dude slapping the floor and Kentucky winning 30 games every year.

It shouldn’t be up to Boeheim to decide if they are going to play man. It’s Syracuse. You HAVE to run the 2-3 zone. You just have to. Unless you’re losing late in the game and need to speed it up then you go to man. But you don’t say in August that you’re going to run man-to-man this year. What, is Buddy going to go out there and D someone up on the wing?

Do you know how awkward this is going to sound if Syracuse starts a game in man?

On top of it all, he’s not even thinking of us gamblers out here. This is even more where it’s like Georgia Tech not running the triple option. Syracuse o/u are always so low because of that zone (and shitty offense). What happens when there are more possessions? Who is going to refund all of us when we 100% bet under like 127 and the game ends up in the 140s?

And yeah, I know Syracuse used to run man, even in the 2000s. But that’s not the point. When you say Syracuse basketball you immediately think 2-3 zone. It’s un-American not to think that at this point.

I’m sorry for having to write a college basketball blog in August, but when something this drastic is about to happen we have to address it. Do the right thing, Jim. Take it back. Say you’re only running the 2-3.
