Big East position rankings: Special teams - Big East Blog - ESPN
4. Syracuse. The Orange have one of the best kickers in the league in Ross Krautman, who missed just one of his 19 field goal attempts last season. They do lose their top punt returner in Mike Holmes, along with punter Rob Long so there are questions at some of the most important spots on special teams. But Krautman, and the return of Dorian Graham and Prince-Tyson Gulley returning kicks puts this unit just ahead of the Bearcats.

Basketball Prospectus | D-I's Top 100 Players
58. Kris Joseph, Syracuse (Sr., SF) - It's rare that you see a team with five players as similarly effective, per-possession, on offense as the 2011 Orange were with Joseph, Scoop Jardine, Dion Waiters, Brandon Triche, and C.J. Fair. The worst of the five was probably freshman Fair (110 offensive rating, 18 percent of possessions) and the best was probably Joseph (109 offensive rating, 23 percent of possessions). I'm ranking Joseph this much higher than those four primarily because only he and Fair separated themselves on defense and on the boards, and Fair's offense just doesn't stand up.
