Syracuse students agree: Can't have a let down after that last win.
Syracuse earned another top ten win last Saturday. But Syracuse now leaves the friendly confines again to take on Clemson. One of the teams currently at the bottom of the ACC, that doesn't mean they aren't talented. Syracuse must stop Jaron Blossomgame. He is clearly the best player on Clemson. And if he is allowed to go wild, Syracuse will find themselves in another hole that they have to crawl out of. And this might be the time they don't do it. The good news is that Clemson is not a great three point shooting team. If Syracuse plays some solid defense, Syracuse should win this game. Unlike against Virginia, where good defense was enough but they had to score a bunch, Syracuse in this one has to limit Clemson and they should be fine if they don't get the same production levels out of Battle or Lydon. Despite the fact that Syracuse is playing on the road, I think Syracuse's defense is playing really well right now. I'll take the Orange over Clemson by 13. This game is available regionally on the ACC Network at 8:00pm. Check your local listings here. John and I are both in the home office, but I'm internet only. He'll probably win again. Go (the real) Orange!
