I stopped by the McSports Fix to talk expansion, SU football and Delone Carter. Download the 4/20 show to listen in.

SNOWBALLS DO NOT AMUSE DELONE CARTER. That's two points for Syracuse via Delone Carter, whose car was hit by a snowball, and whose fist then hit a guy who didn't even throw the snowball. Theresults are SEXY.

Pitarresi blog: More trouble for SU football - Utica, NY - The Observer-Dispatch
There is a long way to go before that issue is resolved, but if Carter doesn’t play in the fall, SU’s offense is going to suffer.

Matt's Memo: Paulus to the NFL : Sports : WSTM NBC3
I ran into Paulus at the Dome a couple of weeks ago during the NCAA basketball tournament. I told him I liked some of his radio work this year on post-game broadcasts of Syracuse games.

Ryan Nassib may have been the starting quarterback for Syracuse in the annual Spring Game, but he knows all too well that he isn’t guaranteed that spot come fall.

Why SU should move to the Big Ten : Sports : WSTM NBC3
