The report said the Carrier Dome roof is "highly likely" to need to be replaced by 2024 and would cost the university $25 million. That replacement would take an estimated three months to complete and, barring unforeseen issues, could be done without impacting the football and basketball seasons.
With the verbal commitment of 4-star combo guard Frank Howard, Syracuse is out of scholarships for the 2015-2016 basketball season. Howard, the fourth top-70 recruit to commit to the Orange, would be a nice way to cap off the 2015 class, but Syracuse continues to recruit 5-star prospects Thomas Bryant, a 6’10’’ center, and Derrick Jones, an athletic wing. Here’s how Syracuse will free up a scholarship to sign one of them.
I do think the Orange knock out another six wins during the regular season, earning a third bowl bid in as many years. My optimism – though six wins may seem pessimistic to this fan base – stems from the returning core of contributors: Hunt, Tyson-Gulley, Hickey, Broyld, Trudo, Crume, Thompson, Davis, Lynch and Eskridge.
The Nets have yet to work out any draft prospects, at least publicly. Since Fair is unlikely to work out alone, the Nets are likely going to bring in other prospects next week as well.
Duerig's commitment pushed Syracuse into the top 30 of the 247Sports' recruiting rankings (28th) and to No. 6 in the ACC. How close is Syracuse to possibly moving into the top 25?
"He'll be dangerously good now that he starts training specifically for football," Linta said.
There is good news and bad news for Tyler Ennis in Chad Ford's latest mock draft. The good news is Ford projects Ennis to play for his hometown Toronto Raptors. The bad news is that Ennis has slipped to the 20th overall pick from No.16 in Ford's mock.
"I would expect Nova is going up there thinking it can win. That was certainly the case last year against BC, with new coach and all. Syracuse might be a tougher challenge, but Nova has beaten IA's in the past and given many others good games in losses. It wouldn't be the biggest shock of the weekend if they pulled it off."
Barry, who cannot sign a binding agreement with a school until Feb. 4, is one of the top linebacker prospects on Syracuse's recruiting board. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder committed to the Badgers on Wednesday.
I've been a fan my whole life. I always went to Syracuse basketball camps. In high school, I was invited to the Syracuse Elite Camp. I went to that twice. I got to know Coach Hopkins, Coach McNamara pretty well. And then throughout AAU, they were at a lot of my (Albany City Rocks) games because they were recruiting Dajuan (Coleman). And things didn't go the way I'd planned at Monmouth. No harsh feelings. It just wasn't the right place for me. It's awful because I had to leave a lot of friends and that was tough. But when I decided to transfer, I thought, 'I may as well look into Syracuse.' And they're giving me an opportunity.
Tyler Ennis goes 20th to the Toronto Raptors while Jerami Grant is MIA (and not the Miami kind).
