What a difference a year makes. Check out this interview Michael Carter-Williams did with NYC journalist Derrel Johnson recently. This time last year MCW was helping SU make their Final Four push.
After a great weekend of sports, particularly for Syracuse, we forget that before there was a rivalry between SU & Duke, there was collaboration. Coach Boeheim successfully worked with Coach K during the Olympics, and ESPN commentators such as Jay Bilas (Duke grad) worked with SU grads.
Bilas, speaking here during a forum at SU’s Newhouse School, takes time to indirectly show some love to SU’s journalism program.
The Syracuse Orangemen (basketball) are predicted to finish near the top in their inaugural ACC season, and senior C.J. Fair is the pre-season Player of the Year.
As SU gets ready to enter the Atlantic Coast Conference this season, we remember Edwin “Eddie” Moss. Moss was a point guard for SU and ushered them into the Big East back in 1979. He later became a newspaper publisher. He’s pictured here in 2005 (the same year he passed away). May he rest in peace.
