It earned him the nickname "cave man," astutely assigned by his roommates freshman year when Charley would log long hours in Manley Field House and return to the apartment late at night. Even on this day, when he meets with a reporter during the first week of March, Zack Chibane and Justin Pugh rag on him for watching film six months before the start of the season.
"My favorite style of quarterback is a guy who knows how to win. It's the truth, too. Back when Penn State won a national championship a long time ago they had a quarterback by the name of John Shaffer.

Syracuse vs. Miami: We're all surprised to see either of these teams anywhere near an Elite anything, but that's what happens when the bracketmakers give you a region full of non-football schools like LIU-Brooklyn and Colorado. The Canes outscored their former Big East rival Orange 196-30 in their last five meetings. But Cuse's offense is sneakily one of the country's best, and Miami fields a non-sneakily awful defense.
