ESPN and SNY’s Tim Welsh calls in to talk about high expectations for the 2018-19 Syracuse basketball season. After, editor in chief Brad Bierman then chats about the football team’s quarterback controversy between Eric Dungey and Tommy DeVito.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wesley Cheng: You’ve always been spot on with your predictions, so what do you think will happen in the 2018-19 season?

Tim Welsh: I think they’re starting out with a big plus because the way they finished last year, the return of [Tyus] Battle, all of the good players who got better in the season, they’re going to be a top 10, there’s no doubt about it, by the middle of January. You’re going to see them play very well early. At the end of the year, I think they’re going to, again, have a chance to go to the Final Four this year because they have that type of experience. In the tournament last year, what they showed, I think they can make that next step and get to the Final Four.
