Catches keep adding up for Syracuse football receiver Marcus Sales | syracuse.com
"I’ve always been impressed with Marcus and his performance on Saturdays," Marrone said during the Big East coaches conference call. "In the past, I’ve talked about Marcus not being as consistent in practice. "What I’ve seen from Marcus since he’s been back is that consistency in practice," he said. "Now it’s carrying over to back-to-back-to-back games for him. He’s a player that as long as he practices well, he can have this type of production every game."

Marrone expects production from running back rotation to continue | The Daily Orange
When the season started, Marrone tabbed Jerome Smith as the starter, though that was little more than a technicality. Evaluations were ongoing, and for now, all of the tailbacks will be taking their share of snaps. "I don’t think I had a choice," Marrone said during the Big East coaches’ teleconference on Monday. "That’ll be evaluated, obviously, as we work through the season. We’re getting the quality reps that we need from those players right now."
Students show school spirit as NBC’s ‘Today’ show films on campus | The Daily Orange
More than 100 SU students, including the marching band and cheerleading squad, were filmed live on the "Today" show on Monday morning to compete for a chance to bring "Today" show hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb to the university. They posed in shades of orange and blue, and held signs on the hill in front of the Newhouse III building for the shoot. "Syracuse University was one of the top six schools to be picked for showing school pride on social media, Twitter specifically," said Haines.
Minnesota Gopher Football: Does Syracuse have the best offense Minnesota will face in 2012? - The Daily Gopher
This question would have seemed ridiculous before the season. Heck, anyone casual fan who sees Syracuse has just a 1-2 record may still think it's ridiculous. But make no mistake, in their three games against a solid range of opponents, QB Ryan Nassib and the Orange Offense are doing some silly things with the football. Through three games they rank 15th in the country in total yards of offense with 1600 total at an average of 533.33 per game and 6.11 yards per play.
Syracuse football center getting bigger, better, coach says | syracuse.com
Responding to a question about the offensive line’s performance during Monday’s Big East coaches conference call, Marrone said the junior center and grandson of former Orange coach Dick MacPherson played one of his best games in Saturday’s 28-17 victory over Stony Brook. "This past game, Macky played extremely well. Probably his best game," Marrone

Big East Football Power Rankings Week Four - The UConn Blog
The same can be said about Syracuse, who looked passable in a loss to Northwestern, looked fantastic in a loss to USC and then looked wretched in a close win over Stony Brook. The result? Four votes for fifth place, two four seventh and two for eighth.
Minnesota Football: How Max Shortell changes the Gopher offense (NOT a QB controversy piece) - The Daily Gopher
This is not about a QB controversy. I believe that what MarQueis Gray can do with his legs, running the ball downfield and extending the pocket, as well as his position as the unquestioned leader of this football team, are more important to the Gophers right now than what Max Shortell brings to the table as a passer. Having said that, it's interesting, and almost a bit shocking, how drastically the complexion of this offense changes from MarQueis Gray to Max Shortell.

The ACC champion, or another team from the conference if its champion qualifies for the national semifinals, will play annually in the Orange Bowl. How the ACC's opponent will be selected from Notre Dame, the SEC or Big Ten is still being determined.
Judging Kevin Ollie's performance will be a challenge, but here are some keys to look for - The UConn Blog
I don't think it's too much to ask that UConn pull off some feisty upsets. If Syracuse is heading towards a big year, I want to see UConn run and trap them to a loss. If Louisville is looking like a national contender, I want to see UConn shock them one Saturday afternoon.
Close call against Stony Brook proves Syracuse has a long way to go in 2012 | The Daily Orange
"A win’s a win," SU running back Jerome Smith said. But it certainly didn’t feel like it as Marrone and his players tried to explain why it took so long to finish off the Seawolves.
