Well hi there! You may have noticed that things look a little different. Well, after a couple years of our old look, I decided it was time for a change. And because I have certain sites I frequent, it’s a change that you might find reminiscent of some other stops around the internet you’ve seen. Yep. Everyone steals from everyone. That’s just how it is.

Notably, the two biggest influences are the AVClub, The Ringer and The Player’s Tribune. Basically, I wanted to go with a sleeker, more professional looking site, de-emphasizing the orange background because, while obviously orange is important to Syracuse, it winds up looking a little loud and tacky on a website. “Clean” is the key word here.

So I hope you enjoy the new look of the site. I know I certainly do. And now that things are slowing down a bit with my day job, I’m hoping to get back to churning out more content, along with a couple of my occasional contributors. After all, we’re about to enter a pretty important stretch for Syracuse fans with the early signing period for basketball, actual basketball season, and the run up to National Signing Day for football.
