Good news is, no one quit the Syracuse football team today (so far).

Bad news is, we still lost someone.  First-string fullback Carl Cutler, to be exact.  Carl tore his left anterior cruciate ligament which will require surgery.

SU is already paper thin at fullback so we'll see how this affects the roster and depth chart. Shane Kimmel takes the mantle for now, with Robert Nieves behind him. 

The school says that Cutler's status for the 2010 season will be re-evaluated over the summer.  Call me crazy but, based on what we already know about torn ACLs and recovery time (we have experience), isn't it pretty fair to say his season is over?  We'll wait and see, I suppose.
