Drew Allen doesn’t necessarily have to be the savior of SU football, but he can add a winning piece to a team that is going through a culture change with coaches and players.
CJ Fair, A: Raise your hand if you’re excited to see Fair as a senior? He seems to have, as he puts it, transitioned from "fitting in" to "standing out." Fair led the team in scoring at 14.5 points and rebounding at 7.0 rpg. Statistically, he was the best outside shooter on the team (46 3pt%) and was the most consistent player throughout the year. The only thing you’d like to see from Fair is for him to be more aggressive. He has the potential to be a First Team All-American next year.
I turned 31 a couple weeks ago. I love Syracuse basketball as much or more than I ever have, but my days of freakouts and superstitions and beliefs that somehow my fandom affects the team in some deep cosmic way are slowly but surely going by the wayside. Last night, I had a little sacrifice to the basketball gods planned, some grizzle leftover from a steak reserved for my dog, Keita, that I was going to give her as a reward if and only if Baye played a good game. I gave it to her anyway. I’m trying to be an adult. I really am.

"Here's a guy who went 3-0 against Geno Smith,'' Gruden said. "Imagine this pressure: Syracuse is expected to be pretty good last year, and they start 0-2, and they've losing to Stony Brook at home at halftime the next week. He brings them back there to win. They beat Louisville. They win at Missouri. They really handle West Virginia in the bowl game. Those are some good wins, now. And they do it after changing their offense two weeks before the start of the regular season. I like the way he plays. I like the way he handled his own people booing him.''
"I want more guys, I want more competition, and I work for a head coach that feels the same way," Daoust said. "My deal is inside or outside, we're gonna play the best four, and hopefully that takes eight or nine guys to get the best four out there. We played eight guys last year. We'll do it again this year."
Former Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib, a guest on the "Dan Patrick Show" today, was asked who he felt was the best quarterback in the upcoming NFL Draft. Nassib gave Patrick a one word answer to that question. "Myself."
