Daily Links - Syracuse Football's Key Stretch

Key stretch: Syracuse - Big East Blog - ESPN
I think Syracuse will be better this year and will be highly competitive. I just don't see how it wins any of the games in this stretch. Make it 0-4 to open the conference for the Orange, who will have to hope to rebound with three of their final four games in the Carrier Dome.

Young Guns: Little experience for Big East QBs | University of South Florida Bulls blog: USF Sports Bulletin | & St. Petersburg Times
Across the league, there are largely unproven passers leading their teams into the 2010 season -- the eight projected starters this fall have combined for 41 career starts. By comparison, USF's Matt Grothe went into last season with 38 starts all by himself. Savage is the dean of the league quarterbacks with 11 career starts, one more than the Bulls' Daniels.

If the Big East schools were chicks.....
Ah Cuse. You are most certainly the "Legendary Cougar" of the conference. The Legendary Cougar is still hot (basketball), but the glory days are slowly drifting further and further away (football). Still, who wouldn't want to hook up with her?

Jim Boeheim was exhausted out there at Turning Stone, but he soldiered on . . . and on . . . and on |
"That was the first round of 18 holes that I almost didn’t make," Boeheim said. "I was dying out there. I got to No. 16, and I was starting to faint. This is about as hot as I’ve ever played in. It’s certainly the hottest I’ve ever walked in."

First Down: Rookie Mike Williams, Tampa's hidden treasure - Roto Arcade - Fantasy  - Yahoo! Sports
Playing with a chip on his shoulder, Williams appears determined to bring naysayers to their knees. Throughout camp he's reeled in one dazzling catch after another. Most importantly, he's showcased the work ethic of a player desperate to catch on, outplaying more ballyhooed rookie Arrelious Benn(notes). So impressed with the kid's effort, Raheem Morris has already tabbed the tacky-handed treasure his starting "X" receiver.

Football scholarships in the Patriot League are an idea whose time has come |
"If Colgate wants to play Syracuse, Army and Navy every year (the Raiders play the Orange this fall) we have to have scholarship players," Biddle said.
