Syracuse Football: A Quick Catch-Up Before Running Back To Basketball

Rich Barnes-US PRESSWIRE

Syracuse Orange football spring practice is still happening. I think. I've heard rumors. I don't really know cause we're all kinda busy this week, but, we'll see if we can run through it real quickly so we can all pretend we know what we're talking about...

Syracuse Orange football spring practice is still happening. I think. I've heard rumors. I don't really know cause we're all kinda busy this week, but, we'll see if we can run through it real quickly so we can all pretend we know what we're talking about...

The spring is over for RB/WR/Whatever Ashton Broyld and DE Donnie Simmons. Both have suffered The Dreaded Lower Body Injury (we're still gonna do that, huh?). Simmons' injury will require surgery (uh-oh) while Broyld's injury will require an evaluation in June to determine if he can play come July (uh-oh). We'll keep a wary eye on both of their situations.

Sophomore George Morris III is stepping it up in spring ball and making an impression, though according to Jerome Smith, it's a strange one...

"If you’ve ever seen him run, he runs like a duck," Smith said, "so it’s hard to know where he’s going because he’s got these duck feet."

The battle to be the next Syracuse QB continues as Charley Loeb, John Kinder and Terrel Hunt all make their case. Meanwhile, the Orange continue to woe Oklahoma transfer Drew Allen, who visited SU this week.

I think Schad is being more speculative here than anything but it's a possibility. From what I've been told by our friends at Crimson & Cream Machine, Allen is very solid, he just simply got beat out by better QBs.

For three seasons now, Das Boot, Ross Krautman, has handled kicking duties for Syracuse. Now, in his senior season, he's facing the stiffest competition of his career. Ryan Norton has been stealing reps in practice while Krautman continues to put a sometimes-shaky 2012 behind him.

Finally, the team is coming along well in spring practice as the playerslearn the new language of a new coaching staff. Regardless, head coach Scott Shafer is being very head coach-y about it:

"We're scratching the surface," coach Scott Shafer said.

Scratch that HardNose.
