Syracuse Daily Links - On Carrier Dome Attendance

Orange::44: Bueller? Bueller?
People are showing up to the Carrier Dome. For the Thursday night season opener on September 1 against Wake Forest, the announced attendance was 40,833. Against FCS foe Rhode Island this past weekend, that announced number fell to 36,421.

The Trojans have put together terrible performances in their two victories, squeaking out a win at home against Minnesota (which just lost to bottom feeder New Mexico State) and Utah. The Trojans are supposed to be a high-powered offense, but are averaging 15.5 points a game and 109.5 yards on the ground. Syracuse has had its share of problems on defense and in the run game, but the Trojans are not unbeatable by any stretch.

Luckily for the Cuse, Rhode Island missed a field goal and didn't hand the ball off enough to running back Travis Hurd who gashed the defense for 7.1 yards per carry and a touchdown on his 8 attempts.

What’s up these days, for Cavanaugh, is a widening array of potential college destinations. Once a target for mid-major Division I schools, Cavanaugh’s performance over a summer of camps and tournaments prompted two programs from renowned basketball conferences to offer scholarships.
