    Well, like most media members, he knows our fans are clickbait bait when it comes to anything negative.

    Without White, 9th is understandable. I can see anywhere from 4th to maybe 10th or so. Tons of question marks especially if we can't add the outside threat.

    Yes, but it would be nice to have some preseason hype for once.

    10th would have to be Boeheim's worst team ever. You can count on one hand how many times we have finished under .500 in any conference(2). I know we are .500 the last two years, but thats the exception not the norm.

    Technically, we were 10th this past year.

    I wouldn't expect it, but without White, we need a lot of things to improve over where they were at the end of the season (outside scoring, overall scoring, interior play). With White, we're most likely a top 3-4 ACC team. Without him, I think it'll be tough to crack that top 4.

    Without White we are fifth or sixth. With him we are no worse than 3. Too much talent on this team. There's two first round picks on this roster now. White solves the shooting issue. That's the only thing we aren't good at as currently constructed.
