Meet the Syracuse all-anagram team

I’m getting back the important pregame scouting analysis this week after a bit of a hiatus. I didn’t do it last week and it’s fair to blame NC State’s lack of preparedness on me. I am truly sorry, but at the end of the day you can’t change the past but I’m putting that behind me and just trying to go 1-0 this week.

Eric Dungey — Iced Gurney

Since you can’t spell his name without the word gurney, I suppose we should have seen his injury-plagued career coming, huh.

Kyle Strickland — Dirk Clankstyle

Dirk Clankstyle is a way better name than Kyle Strickland. Does anyone really want to be a Kyle these days? I feel like Kyles are out right now. The Kyle brand is on the decline. On the other hand, many people are saying that Dirks have big-time panache.

Cameron Jordan — Major Ordnance

This would be a great football nickname, but probably only for defensive tackles or linebackers. Jordan’s a wide receiver, but if he lives in the weight room long enough, perhaps the dream can come true.

Abdul Adams — A Dumb Salad

“All right, it’s lunch time! Let’s see what we got. ... Aw, dammit, another Abdul Adams.” [slams fridge shut]

Antwan Cordy — Tawdry Canon

If Antwan had any questions about his post-football career, he can put them to rest. You know who establishes tawdry canon? Authors of romance novels, of course.

James Cherry — My Jars Cheer

You feelin’ okay there, James?

Andre Cisco — Scenic Road

Maybe not the best philosophy for a safety, but as a life motto, hey, not bad, Andre.
