Syracuse Daily Links - Justin Pugh Bulks Up

Justin Pugh bulks up for Syracuse - Big East Blog - ESPN
His play got him a second-team All-Big East selection and has him firmly in the conversation as one of the best tackles in the league. What does he do for an encore? For starters, Pugh spent the summer bulking up. Last season he was a bit undersized at 285 pounds. Now he’s up to 300 pounds.

Revised college hoops preseason Top 25 - College Basketball -
5. Syracuse – Other than leading rebounder Rick Jackson, the Orange return every key player from a team that went 27-8 last season. Jim Boeheim’s club will tout one of the deepest backcourts in the country with Brandon Triche, Scoop Jardine, Michael Carter-Williams and Dion Waiters. Senior Kris Joseph is one of the top forwards in the Big East. He averaged 14.4 points last season. Syracuse is hoping 7-foot center Fab Melo makes significant strides following a disappointing freshman season.

Lots of Pulp: Conversations With Greggers - Greg Gets A New Job
Much to our surprise, Greggers got himself a new job, and cameras were there just in time to catch his introductory speech to his team.

Will Doug Marrone Be Forced to Suspend Marcus Sales for the Entire Season? : Orange Fizz – Free Syracuse Recruiting News, Sports Rumors, Podcasts
Here’s the biggest problem: No matter who takes ownership of the narcotics, Marcus was the one driving, running the red, admitting to drinking alcohol, and without his driver’s license. You can’t escape those facts.

Donovan McNabb, Syracuse Shock Virginia Tech in 1998 |
"Syracuse Week" debuts with a look back at the Orange’s dramatic 28-26 victory over Virginia Tech in 2008. Donovan McNabb connected with tight end Stephen Brominski for a 13-yard TD on the final play of the game to secure the victory.

Syracuse takes double hit - Big East Blog - ESPN
Incidents like this are never good for your program, but the timing is obviously even worse with the opening of fall camp just days away. Marrone is in Newport, R.I., for Big East media days, and no doubt will be asked for more information when he addresses reporters.

Waters at the Boeheim Fantasy Camp: I meet my camp counselors and I think I'm in trouble |
After a while a group of very large, very tall men came into the room. Billy Owens. Derrick Coleman. Lawrence Moten, Herman Harried. Roosevelt Bouie. These are our "camp counselors.’’ Much to my dismay, these guys seem to remember stuff that I wrote about them during their careers. Actually, to quote Roger Clemens, I think they mis-remember what I wrote about them during their careers.

Orange::44: Marcus Sales Sells Drugs?
Marcus Sales is, as we say in the legal world, f****d. Probably. Not even looking at the possibility of going to state prison, Sales has almost certainly ruined his college career and, quite possibly, any hopes at a professional career.

Freshmen have to 'line up' for shot at playing time for Syracuse University football |
"If the (non-freshman) walk-ons have done a good job on our football team, the other freshmen coming in will be behind them to start...The way I’ve done it so far – is if they can help and contribute, they’re playing," Marrone said.

Lots of Pulp: Raising the Orange Curtain
We plan to bring something a little different to the table here at Lots of Pulp. You should expect some more multimedia pieces, polls and lists, and reader-generated content. There will also be some writing - both of us wrote for The Daily Orange back in our time at SU - but we're not here to break news or anything like that.

Syracuse University Athletics - The Night Before The Boeheim Camp!
Getting out of my car at a rest stop (not exactly to rest) on my drive up to Syracuse, I slightly twisted my ankle.

How Will One Bad Weekend Alter the 2011 Syracuse Football Season? |
It doesn't ruin Christmas when you find out the "truth" about Santa. But it does make it seem, well, different.

Why is Syracuse University's Doug Marrone already No. 2 in seniority among Big East football coaches? |
In 2009, Marrone was the league’s only rookie head coach. His taking over for fired Greg Robinson at SU less than three years ago seems almost boring compared to the soap opera quality surrounding the changes at some other Big East schools — and that’s a good thing.
