A bunch of former Syracuse football players voiced their displeasure with their treatment by the current SU Football regime on Wednesday night. What the heck?
Regardless of where you stand on the Doug Marrone debate, I think we can all agree that Doug is passionate about Syracuse University, it's tradition and it's history. So that's what makes a series of tweets from former Syracuse Orange football players Wednesday night so confusing (and troubling).
Troy Nunes, former Syracuse quarterback and blog namesake, visited the university a few days ago and seemed to have some fun while there.
Road trip to the Cuse tomorrow with the fam. Let my son set foot on the actual field I ran backwards 32 yards and took a safety #awesome— Troy Nunes (@troynunes) October 22, 2012

Took my son thru SU Football facility yesterday, amazed at the dynamic In there now. Pre-Marrone alums are not well accepted #badmove— Troy Nunes (@troynunes) October 24, 2012
What the heck? Say what you want about Troy's tenure but he's an Orangeman and he was a part of some good times for SU. I find it surprising that we would treat him poorly upon returning. And that's why some of the responses he received were even more surprising...
@troynunes I will tell you what I think, but not on twitter— Bart (@BigBart01) October 25, 2012
No specifics were provided but where there's smoke there's usually fire. What is it that Doug Marrone & SU Football are doing (or aren't doing) that's making multiple former Orange feel this way? Be interested to see if anything else comes of this. Also, as Scott pondered, wonder what kind of reaction Donovan McNabb gets when he walks through the door...
