Boeheim should be hotter than Pitino at Big East schedule | Rick Bozich
Here is how I rank the schedules of the six top contenders: 1. SYRACUSE - double games with Louisville and UConn, road games at Cincinnati, Notre Dame and Villanova.

Who's NEXT in the Big East? - Big East Blog - ESPN
Syracuse: Dyshawn Davis, linebacker. Davis enrolled early and switched positions, but impressed coaches with his ability. At 6-foot-2 and 206 pounds, he could probably stand to gain 15 pounds, but no doubt he will have every opportunity to make a name for himself in the type of defense Syracuse runs. He could be the next Marquis Spruill.

Syracuse Misses on Buffalo RB Akeel Lynch, Chooses Boston College : Orange Fizz – Free Syracuse Recruiting News, Sports Rumors, Podcasts
It’s hard to fault SU on missing out on Lynch. He was only in the Orange backyard since the beginning of last season. To beat out schools like Penn State, and even to a lesser degree Boston College, Syracuse needs to build a relationship and a bond from an early stage. If the big boys come calling after just one season in the States, at this point in its football timeline, SU will find it tough to win that battle.

Doug Marrone believes current scholarship dollars are enough for student-athletes. Rutgers coach Greg Schiano and Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich believe increasing scholarships to cover room and board would be a step in the right direction. Officials at USF and Pittsburgh believe the topic is worth further discussion.

Carmelo Anthony was born in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn, New York on May 29, 1984. He moved to Baltimore, Maryland when he was eight, and attended high school in Maryland and Virginia.

2011 Football Preview – Week 1, Wake Forest | The Juice Online
Wake Forest is coming off a brutal season, as the Demon Deacons lost nine in a row at one point, finishing the season 3-9, including 1-7 in the ACC. Seven times, Wake Forest allowed 30 points or more, as it finished 110th in the NCAA in points against (35.8).

The Wake Forest game should be an interesting one. If I am the Deacs, I game plan to try to exploit weaknesses in the middle of the defensive line and at linebacker. That means perhaps trying to pound Josh Harris up the middle. The secondary is the strongest part of the Syracuse defense, so grinding it out may be Wake's best chance at winning.

To ditch 'Drive-Thru U' tag, South Florida needs own stadium - NCAA Football -
Having played in an NFL stadium since its inception, USF fans are accustomed to certain perks, such as luxury boxes and club levels. So the Bulls obviously can't just encircle a football field with some aluminum bleachers, like their "friends" at UCF, 90 miles up I-4.

5. Justin Pugh, tackle, Syracuse. Pugh had quite the impressive debut season, starting all 13 games at left tackle as a redshirt freshman en route to second-team All Big East honors. He might not be huge (6-foot-5, 287 pounds), but he is athletic and should be among the best in the league.
