It’s Wednesday, so you know what that means… it’s blog time giving you the internet’s most ridiculous series of college football previews – it’s time for the #FakeNunes . Have we found creative ways to incorporate #jokesandgarbages into a Syracuse Orange Insight? Your turn to judge….
Now on to this week’s opponent
Opponent: Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Location: South curve, IN
Students: 8,854 students who cannot believe their Yankees get swept away like that.
The 2022 False Nunes Statistical Index (#FNSI)
We continue to seek to innovate our analysis model, so here is what the laboratory has prepared for this season.
NEW Rivalry Trophy
The FNSI staff realized that what was missing in these games is that Orange are not playing for any rivalry trophies and they are here to right this wrong. Each week, the FNSI winner will win a new trophy. This week we give you
The 1987 Heisman Trophy
Come on people…you had to see this one coming. The biggest failure of the Greg Robinson era wasn’t bringing this back to Syracuse after upsetting the Irish. This week we say it’s time for Tim Brown to show up with his stolen Heisman and put it on the line. The Irishman wins and he can keep his fraudulent prize, but Syracuse wins and he comes home where he belonged all this time – in the arms of Don McPherson.
The great hair factor
In order to maintain our #CanadasCollegeTeam status, we review who wears #99 each week and determine who has the best salad.
Advantage: Notre Dame
Bringing this one back as we like to drop it, some knowledge once in a while to help our loyal readers possibly win a quiz night. After all, we’re the Syracuse blog that loves you back, and we take that seriously.
Hannah Storm vs. Beth Mowins
It’s the battle of sports commentators this week. Two women who broke new ground with their work spanning the NBA and NFL.

None against #GoIrish
Simple and clean.
Advantage: Notre Dame
The linebacker coach looks like:
Fans of The LeBatard Show may be familiar with this game, it’s where we guess what is the best description for a coaching position of each team. This year’s pick will be the linebackers coach. This week’s matchup (now easier to compare thanks to Michael’s discovery of the image slider):

Al Golden looks like a guy wearing a white shirt on a humid saturday afternoon in miami
Tony White looks like a guy who knows you leave the tie at home when it’s 90 and humid.
Advantage: Syracuse because a white shirt and tie in sunny Miami is just plain wrong
The official #FakeNunes game prediction
Syracuse gets the opening kickoff and gives it to Sean Tucker six straight. He breaks the last one for a long touchdown and Dino reaches out and says “Aren’t you entertained?” Marcus Freeman responds “Actually no, I’m not!”
Dino feels bad so he sits Tucker out for the rest of the half. Everyone in the JMA Dome boos and shouts and eventually Tucker can’t stand it so he goes on defense, intercepts a through pass and returns it for another touchdown. Babers decides he will just play Tucker on the offensive, defensive and special teams. Tucker finishes with six touchdowns and eight extra points to give him 44 points on the afternoon.
