    Gillon is going to wear #4. Our last transfer who wore #4 worked out pretty damn well.

    It's good he mentioned both, because with Boeheim, they dont always coincide.

    If I remember correctly after the recruiting process was complete there was an article that said Moyer would wear #3 like his recruiter GMAC. Might be a problem for AW to get #3.

    Moyer's the type of guy who would gladly surrender his number if that's what's best for the team. He'll get it back after a year anyway...unless Tucker wants it.

    For Gillon yes, but he has us finishing 9th in the ACC... That's not good.

    Don't worry - we'll turn that rothstein frown upside-down. We always do! Soon enough, he'll say Chukwu has so much length he personally cleaned the top of the dome with just a step ladder. ;)

    Well unlike us he doesn't know White is coming Popcorn

    Preseason rankings are nice but in the grand scheme of things aren't the end all. I prefer the coaches poll the second week of April SUball

    He sure mentions enough of our players in all of these lists (impact freshman, under-the-radar, transfers) for only putting us at 9th!

    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.

    We had no expectations those years.
