Orange Alumni Classic lacrosse games are set for the Carrier Dome on Oct. 13 | syracuse.com
Perhaps there's no avoiding scheduling conflicts between football and fall lacrosse. But life goes on and both teams at Syracuse University will have functions on Oct. 13. That day, the Syracuse football team visits No. 23-ranked and undefeated Rutgers in a Big East Conference game at Piscataway, N.J. And back home on the same day, the Orange lacrosse team wraps up fall ball with a double-header called the "Orange Alumni Classic" at the Carrier Dome.
Syracuse 10, Minnesota 17: Back to the Drawing Board | Bleeding Orange
On the one hand, this team is infuriating in how it seems to find a new way to give a game away every week. And even the bright spots; Nassib and Sale’s record-setting pace, Lemon setting records of his own, the furious comebacks, feed into that frustration because we can see what the Orange are capable of. We know that they could easily be 3-1 instead of 1-3.
Doug Marrone Should Not Be On The Hot Seat At Syracuse - Inside the Loud House - A Syracuse Orange Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.
If we judged Marrone based on such a small part of the season last year at this time, we would have praised and loved him and not had any questions regarding him. Last season started promising and ended poorly, and it could very possibly happen in opposite order this year. We need to focus on football and the next nine weeks before fans judge or speculate about the head coach.

Syracuse University Athletics - Orange Receives Votes in College Soccer News Poll
Coming off its first win in a BIG EAST opener since 2008, the SU men's soccer team (7-2-0, 1-0-0 BIG EAST) received votes in this week's College Soccer News Top 30 rankings, released Monday, Sept. 24.
A Citizen on Sport: Put the seat warmers away, Marrone is the right guy for the job
I have to say though. Doug Marrone needs to get another two years to work. Football is as glacial a change as basketball is lightning. With all-timers Alec Lemon and Ryan Nassib out of time there needs to be some stability as we move forward and Marrone is a pretty level headed guy even looking at it from this standpoint. However, if 1-3 happens again next season, versus an easier slate, then we can start turning up the warmth. But seriously, when is Midnight Madness?
Week 4 Fizz Five: Mistakes Are Tightening the Noose Around Syracuse : Orange Fizz
This game is precisely why so many schools give themselves as many cupcakes as possible during non-conference play. The more coin flip games (Northwestern, Minnesota) and borderline automatic losses (USC) you have, the less margin for error.
Made a video where I talk about that old familiar feeling that Syracuse Orange fans have following the team's loss to Minnesota (sorry for the crappy light quality...remind me not to film in front of a window).
