"It’s very difficult to answer these types of questions because it starts to sound like you’re making excuses," coach Doug Marrone said at his weekly news conference. "But there is no doubt that we want to be a consistent football team. And we’re working. It’s a work in progress, and it’s never going to get there as fast as I want it to, or the players, or the coaches, or the media, or the fans want it to. But as long as we keep working and we keep our heads down and keep going, we’ll fight through that."

Jim Boeheim will have one of his most experienced teams in his 36th year as Syracuse's coach. The Orange will feature four returning starters along with several reserves who played key roles off the bench last season.

Syracuse, the lone team to beat WVU so far, could win out to finish 5-2, but would need to beat both Pitt and Cincinnati to get there. I think that's unlikely, but stranger things have happened. Thus, WVU needs to root for UConn to give the Orange their third league loss this saturday in Storrs, and for USF to knock off the Orange next weekend at the Carrier Dome just to make sure Syracuse isn't involved in any tie breakers.

Bounce-back Syracuse? The Orange have been a hard team to figure out because they have been so inconsistent. It is hard to think about BCS games when they missed a chance to build momentum off an important win over West Virginia. The offense really struggled in the face of the Louisville pressure last week, while the defense came out flat and allowed Louisville to score 14 first-quarter points. It was the first time all season Louisville scored that many points in the first quarter against an FBS opponent. How do the Orange respond against a team they should beat? Hint: Throw the ball. A lot.
