I’m adding this season’s come-from-behind wins over South Florida and Missouri to my list of most memorable Syracuse football games. That this season isn’t quite over is the big surprise.

22. Syracuse's James Southerland will be the best sixth man in the country As long as Jim Boeheim keeps bringing him off the bench, which seems like a good bet. He's an energy guy who brings a lot of offense into the game, and he's capable of getting hot from outside. He's a reliable double-digit scoring threat who can also rebound and block shots.
