How would I get to NYC if a friend is driving to Syracuse?
Well, taking I 81, while the easiest route with the least traffic, is not going to get you close to NYC, unless you take Amtrak from Washington DC. But, if you could at least persuade your friend to drop you off in Philadelphia you can take the train from there, and the drive to Syracuse from Philadelphia is not a bad one. The problem with going up I 95 closer to NYC is that there is traffic. Bad traffic. I'm not sure your friend will appreciate it!
I have an orange Carmelo Anthony Syracuse jersey. Any takers?
It's not the same. He is giving the Nuggets a chance to get something for him. He's a free agent after this season and could leave then without the Nuggets getting anything. Im sure the Cavs WISH Lebron would have given them that option.
Because it was OrangeMEN and they felt that it should be gender neutral. OrangWOMEN sounded lame so they went with Orange.
Edit: Also Nike had a hand in it:
Say goodbye to the Orangemen -- and the Orangewomen. From now on, Syracuse University's athletic teams will be known simply as the Orange (the color presumably, not the fruit) and have the same logo, an interlocking SU. The school announced the change as part a result of the identity design program recently completed with partner Nike.
“The goal of the project is to create a very clean, refined and unique identity that by design fuses elements of the past with the aesthetic values of the future,” said Christopher McClure, creative director for Nike Team Sports. “We want to respect the past and represent the future.”
Nike has been working on the idea for two years and presented it to Syracuse for consideration. SU consulted with the men’s and women’s basketball coaches, men’s lacrosse coach, and football coach about the change.
The new Orange will sport an orange that is a bit brighter and a blue that is slightly darker. Helmets design will not change. No word yet on how long before the new Syracuse logo appears in stores.
OK, to the idiot who claimed it was a Native American issue, please cite a source, any source to support that.
why did the university of syracuse change their name from orangemen to just the orange?
It was done in part as a way to save money, and build brand awareness. Before the change, women's teams were called the Orangewomen and the various athletic teams had their own logos. (Such as the football team having an interlocking SU and the basketball team having a stylized S in a baskeball) The name Orange is gender neutral, and now all SU sports use the same block "S" logo.
As for the other responses,
The named wasn't changed because it was considered racist, because it's origin had nothing to do with race. In 1890 the school colors were changed from rose pink and pea green to orange and blue, and because we were the only team to have orange uniforms at the time the name Orangemen stuck.
What was racist though was our old mascot the Saltine Warrior, who the local Onondaga Indians found offensive because he acted like a wild man and were insulted by his behavior. He was retired in the 70's and eventually replaced by Otto the Orange when other attempts to come up with a new mascot failed.
Will Syracuse finish top 3 in the ACC for basketball?
Syracuse will not move 2 the ACC until 2012 so its hard say. You would have 2 look each teams roster and make that determination after this season. You would have 2 see if the best players stay in school for each team and who would have the best recruiting class.
do any1 think the orange of syracuse haS a great chance of winning the big east & march madness tourney OF 09?
no chance of winning it all.
there are quite a few teams that can beat them and in the tourney its one and down if you lose.
so one slip up and you are gone.
if UNC doesnt slip up in the tourney they are winning it all unless a great team just out plays.
i wish Duke wins it

You are talking about Paul and Gary Gait. They were not black but they did go pro after graduating college. Both played for a variety of teams throughout their pro careers. Gary was a better player than his brother, and is widely regarded as the Wayne Gretzky of lacrosse. The last I heard of either of them, they were involved with the pro lacrosse team in Rochester and at some point one of them was coaching at Syracuse.
I'm a former CNY resident who missed it, had to sit through ASU's in Tempe yesterday instead. It appears that Coach M is taking an honest, hard-nosed approach with G-Rob's boys. Glad to see that they are working on third and long situations, my guess is they'll see many of those again this year. Glad to see early recruits are committing to SU also!
Did the Syracuse Orange used to be called the Syracuse Orangemen?
In 1971, after a year of discussions with the Onondaga Nation, Syracuse University eliminated their the use of
a Saltine Warrior as their mascot.
Does anyone think that the Syracuse orange will make it to the NCAA tournament?
The Orange have a good chance of going to the NCAA but they will have to finish over .500 in their conference. Although they lost, the Georgetown game should help the Orange chances and their confidence.
How do you think SYRACUSE ORANGE will do in the NCAA's?
Absolutely see them winning! With 6 OT's and one the next night they were just over worked when they lost Sat nights game. Paul Harris, Johnny Flynn, Rautins and Devendorf make the team this year and its gonna happen. With the whole city of Syracuse and all of the suburbs behind them it'll be an Orange out! (thats what we call it here) They have it this year! GO ORANGE!!
Will the Syracuse Orange show any improvement with Doug Marrone as coach?
The Greg Paulus thing really bothers me. When someone who hasn't played football for 4 years (I think that's right) beats out two guys who played last year, you've got problems. I wouldn't count on much this season.
Syracuse Orange Basketball game in Tampa. Is there a bar where Orange fans gather before the game?
Was wondering the same thing. Last time I went to see them at USF we went to Gators Dockside on Fowler before the game and there was a lot of Orange there. Like you said, different location. Im wondering if Hooters in the Chanelside district might be decent before the game. Something in that area would be ideal.
and don't forget Donte Green and Johnny Flinn.
In other words, explosive and dynamic. With HIbbert going to the draft, You have to put them as Big East favorites ---- if Devendorf stays healthy, because he is the nucleus and key swingman on the team.
