Kurzbeschreibung

Recapture the excitement of Syracuse Basketball—newly updated!

Orange is a state of mind for fans of Syracuse University basketball. Think Orange and images of greatness appear, from Vic Hanson in the Roaring ’20s through Carmelo Anthony in the 21st century. Think Orange and the sounds of glory are heard, from old Archbold Gym to the gleaming Carrier Dome. Think Orange and the memories of 1,607 victories are stirred, from SU’s first win in 1901 over Cornell to its 2003 triumph over Kansas that brought home the national championship. Many of the stories that have contributed to the phenomenon known as Orangemen basketball now come to life in Bud Poliquin’s Tales from the Syracuse Orange's Locker Room.

Dave Bing, Jim Boeheim, Jim Brown (yes, he played hoops, too), Bouie and Louie, Leo Rautins, Pearl Washington, and Derrick Coleman—all of them and numerous other SU legends join Hanson and Anthony in the pages of this anecdotal anthology of Syracuse University basketball, certain to complete the bookshelf of any Orangemen fan. This book looks at the team’s infamous 27-game losing streak in the early 1960s; Roy’s Runts; the Pearl’s stunning half-court buzzer-beater that knocked off Boston College in 1984; the fabulous Final Four runs of 1975, 1996, 2003, and 2013, with current players Michael Carter-Williams, James Southerland, and Brandon Triche; and Anthony’s freshman brilliance that delivered the school’s first-ever NCAA tournament title.

2.0 von 5 Sternen False Advertising 16. Januar 2014
Von Rob - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The publication date says Jan 2014, but that is a lie. Reading the Foreword in the book, you learn this book was published shortly after the 2003 championship run. It also says "some" content was added since then, but most of it was untouched. This is annoying since it is sold as something up through 2014. Many of the chapters are so outdated and silly to read in 2014. They didn't spend any time to even update basic facts that aren't true 10 years later. For instance, one chapter tells about about the 3OT game in the Big East Tournament as the longest in tourney history. Of course, it isn't since SU was part of the 6OT thriller in 2009. You'd think a book about Syracuse would update this simple fact, but they don't. That is one example, but there are many other things like that. They never updated even the most basic facts in the book.

Next problem is that they didn't add very much since this first published in 2003. Selling it now as having new content is a complete joke. They have about 5 new things, which is less than 10% of the book. They don't cover the 6OT game at all. They don't talk much about the past 5 years, which are probably the best run in Syracuse basketball history. They don't cover anything negative in the book, except losing the 87 title game. No loss to Richmond (which is still brought up every March). No probation. No Bernie Fine scandal. Just some reprinted newspaper stories.

As for the book as a whole, it is underwhelming. The author grabs a few quotes and pulls some stats to make these 3 or 4 page chapters. This book is light on "tales" from the locker room. You learn that Louis & Bouie were friends in college and sometimes talk to each other today. You learn Lawrence Moten had to walk through a bunch of areas to call his mom when he started his first-ever game. You learn the author really likes Dave Bing.

If you want a quick synopsis of SU basketball, this is a good read. If you want to learn anything more you can't find on Wikipedia or in a Syracuse newspaper archive, forget it. Over 60% of the book is years before Boeheim became coach. That is stupid. Sure, learning the roots of the program is great. But Syracuse basketball is where it is because of the 1976-present teams. They don't cover guys like Derrick Coleman, Billy Owens, John Wallace, Johnny Flynn and so many others, hardly at all. Instead, you get stories from guys you never heard of. You get chapters that recap the team's season with a quote about something unfunny that happened at the same time. And the "tales" are far from insightful.

Pass on this even if you are a diehard fan.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Rip off 31. Januar 2014
Von Matt B. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought the book because the author, Bud Poliquin plugged his "New book" in an article he wrote. It turns out that he has merely added three chapters to a previously published book. Shame on him for intentionally misleading buyers. Pathetic.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable walk through Orange HIstory. 2. April 2014
Von Dennis Tommasulo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
As a 30 year Orange fan I enjoyed not only the history of the program from before I latched on, but also going through the history from when I did become an Orange fanatic. Reading about some players whose names you haven't heard in a while was a nice walk through my memory, a "Must Read" for big Orange fans.
5.0 von 5 Sternen gift for my husband 3. März 2014
Von G Young - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
My husband is a huge SU fan and he really loved this gift, he doesn't usually buy the books for himself so I hoped he would like it. He started reading it right away.
