Streeter Lecka

Syracuse football may or may not have a starter yet and may or may not have a new 2014 recruit soon.

Syracuse football mailbag: Does closing practice mean coaches have picked a starting quarterback? |

"These games are for the freshmen," Boeheim said. "You know, Ronnie's learning it's not easy. B.J.'s learning it's not easy. But they keep plugging, they keep working away at it.
