Syracuse Daily Links - So Far, So Good For SU Football

The Daily Orange - LoGiurato: It's only one game, but Nassib looks like 'the guy' at quarterback for SU
"It’s one of the greatest feelings," Nassib said. "… It’s the greatest high you can ever get. It was weird going out there for the first snap. It was a little bit of a shock. But it’s fun. It’s everything I worked for."

The Daily Orange - Orange defense steps up, holds Zips to 166 yards
Against Akron, the SU defense was as dominant as it has been in a long, long time. Last year, the Orange ranked 13th in the nation in yards per game against the run. But against the Zips, not only was the run defense stout, the pass defense was also equally impressive. SU completely shut down the Zips, allowing just three points and 166 yards of total offense.

Orange::44: Monday Morning Quarterback 9/6/10
Oh how good it feels to be right! Remember last week when I said Ryan Nassib will throw for 215 yards and two touchdowns against Akron? Actual retail price: 229 yards and two touchdowns. OK, so I underestimated Nassib by 14 yards. Still pretty damn good though.

Syracuse Orange Prepare for Washington Huskies: Previewing Week Two | Bleacher Report
Here are a few things the Orange will be sure to look for as they review film of Washington’s 23-17 loss to BYU this weekend.

Niko vs. Food in Akron after the SU game : Sports :
Niko goes to the Akron game but makes a pit-stop at the Melt Bar and Grill in Cleveland Heights, and my challenge was this; eat the entire grilled cheese sandwich weighing over 3 lbs. with 13 different cheeses, all topped with french fries, coleslaw, and pickles.

Big East power rankings, Week 2 - Big East Blog - ESPN
7. Syracuse (1-0): I know, I know. The Orange were the only Big East team to beat an FBS team in the opening week, and they did it convincingly on the road. So why aren't they higher? Well, I'm not convinced that Akron is any good at all, and I want to see more from Syracuse before I vault it up in the rankings. If the Orange pull off the win this week in Washington, they'll do just that.

10 Things I Learned In Akron | Otto's Army
During a Squeezing the Juice in April, Syracuse Post-Standard football beat writer Nolan Weidner told us the players who caught the attention of coaches in spring ball were Van Chew, Aaron Weaver, and Nick Provo. All made enormous contributions in the opener and look poised for a big season. As a reminder, here is who we picked as our offensive MVP’s. Good job Nolan.

Three Idiots on Sports: Hope Renewed: Syracuse - Akron Observations
They dominated Akron physically and imposed their will on a weaker opponent -- and we have Doug Marrone to thank for that. It's clear this team is responding to Marrone's tough, demanding style. Whether that's good enough to go across the country and upset a talented Washington team remains to be seen, but after one game I've seen enough to know this team is going to compete all year long.

One loss does not define a season - UW Dawg Pound
Up next is Syracuse and most of us have circled this game as a win. Washington is a completely different team at home and the greatest improvement you see as a team is between week one and two of the season. I am betting that this team will begin to settle down after the loss and come out firing on all cylinders this Saturday.

It's college football season everywhere -- except in Boston - Dan Shaughnessy -
Outside of New York City it would be hard to find a place more apathetic toward college football.
