Everyone has different financial situations, and sometimes families need the possible paycheck now more than a year from now. But if C.J. doesn’t need the cash is this really the road he wants to risk having to take if he’s selected 31st instead of 30th? From an SU standpoint you hope he comes back. From an individual one, you hope he doesn’t chase a shaky dream and end up regretting it.
With only three tight ends to match up with the four tackles, that meant extra reps for a young group of tight ends, something that's been common throughout the spring. "We only have three so they're like the unsung heroes," offensive coordinator George McDonald said. "They take a lot of reps during practice."
Book your hotels in Buffalo and Indianapolis. Syracuse is a 2-seed in the Midwest in this way-too-early bracketology.
Sophomore Kailah Kempney recorded a season-high five points to lead No. 5/5 Syracuse to a 16-4 victory against No. 20/rv Cornell on Tuesday, Apr. 16 in the Carrier Dome. Syracuse extended its winning streak to five and improved its record to 10-3, while the Big Red goes to 7-5.
There are still spots available in the 21st annual Henry E. Glies Orange Open field for golfers wishing to participate. The Open, hosted by the SU men's soccer program, is one of the highlights of the program's Alumni Weekend. The tournament begins with a shotgun start at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 27 at the Pompey Golf Club in Jamesville, N.Y.
We found 13 quarterbacks who used the graduate transfer rule since it entered the rulebook. We charted their seasons, discovering that success is possible, but not a given, regardless of glowing credentials.
Whether he starts or not, Gbinije will be a key contributor for the Orange next season. He and Cooney will be the oldest and most experienced of Syracuse’s backcourt players.
"I like Ryan Nassib. There are a couple of things in his game that need to be cleaned up and worked on. But at the end of the day, I think he is a very, very solid prospect with NFL attributes. He’s not Andrew Luck, but very few people are."
"He’s definitely got some upside," Boff said of Obokoh. "He’s a hard worker, he’s athletic and he bangs the offensive and defensive glass. He’s not as polished offensively as Tyler, but he’ll be effective in the back of that zone."
I said last week SU could not keep playing with fire, and a one-goal game finally went the opponent's way. Knocking off Cornell and Princeton by one goal were solid results, but Syracuse was the better team against Rutgers and Hobart. Those last two games should not have been as close as they were, and it cost the Orange a victory Tuesday. SU needs to get back in the habit of separating itself from lesser opponents, something it has shown it can do earlier this year.
Allen is no doubt the player to watch throughout preseason camp, but there are six more players that will or may play prominent roles this season that won't participate in Saturday's scrimmage.
Tyler Roberson, a 6-8 forward out of Roselle, N.J.; Ron Patterson, a 6-3 guard from Indianapolis who spent the past year at Brewster (N.H.) Academy; and B.J. Johnson, a 6-7 forward at Lower Merion High School in Ardmore, Pa., will all play for Team Courage, which is the away team in the Mary Kline event's senior game.
It’s the key question right off the bat. Where will the Orange football program fit in the ACC in year one?
