Syracuse looks for improved play from inconsistent big men in conference opener | The Daily Orange
"Going forward, we’re going to miss DaJuan," SU point guard Tyler Ennis said. "But I think our big men our going to fill his void."
Maybe the biggest question facing the position is whether Terrel Hunt is the long-term answer at quarterback?
It all starts Saturday when Miami comes to the Dome. It’s going to get loud and it’s only January. Things are just starting to heat up.
Forget about all the noise and rumors surrounding Syracuse’s quarterback situation next year. Terrel Hunt should be Syracuse’s starting quarterback in 2014. He showed poise all year long, and delivered when necessary. As a first-year QB, he went 7-4. Does he deserve another chance? That sounds pretty fair to me. Because once you become a leader, you never forget how to deliver.
Today, we turn our attention to the running back position, which still might be the offense's most gifted unit even with the loss of NFL-bound Jerome Smith.
"I'm somewhat open, but right now I'm 100 percent committed to Penn State, and the only thing that will put me on edge is if they were to hire a bad coach," Cabinda said by phone Thursday night.
"If you look at those teams, how many had been league champions in their old league in the past 10 years?'' Bilas said. "Syracuse is a power. You don't often see the power of a league switch leagues. It doesn't happen that often. Usually, teams in a power position in a league remain in that league.''
The first edition of "3 points" with Matt Roe and Brent Axe talks about Trevor Cooney and Syracuse starting play in the ACC.
"I can't really speak for anybody else, but personally, this is a statement game for us,'' Gbinije said. "We have as good a record as anybody going into conference play and now this is our first conference and if we want to be one of the top programs in the ACC, we've got to start tomorrow. If we come out and play good, that'll be a good statement.''
"I think Tuesday's game was big for me, confidence-wise," Roberson said. "I think I did some good things. That helped a lot, just getting out there and playing minutes."
