Syracuse Daily Links - Orange Defense Bends But Doesn't Break

Syracuse University football defense bent but never broke in season-opening victory |
"Early on, a lot of people were out of the game defensively, and we didn't communicate on a couple of those big plays," SU coach Doug Marrone said Monday. "But I don't think the red-zone defense could have been much better, with only one of six (Wake trips there) being touchdowns. Defensively they were on the field for a long time."

"When we get hot and get on a role, we can have that kind of production," Syracuse coach Doug Marrone said during his weekly press conference. "And that’s what we’re looking for. It’s not unrealistic to ask your quarterback to go 8-for-8. He’s capable of that as well as our receivers."

Jim Boeheim’s best teams have been built with strong leadership at the base, whether the player in question was Kueth Duany or Andy Rautins. But who is that guy on this team? Can Scoop Jardine show that degree of maturity? The Orange need a more fluid offense and some idea of whether center Fab Melo will be ready to perform consistently as a sophomore.

Notes From the Big East Football Coaches Teleconference - Week One - Big East Coast Bias

Felt that while they did give up some big plays, he was really happy with the red zone defense. Said the issues with the secondary are more about communication than anything else. Said the secondary played a lot of different and new players and some missed communication is bound to happen. Said he was disappointed that the offense didn't start a lot hotter.

Syracuse's Odd Recruiting Ground: N.Y.C. -
This is a city where Queens-born Syracuse quarterback Terrel Hunt said he played most of his football at an intersection on Francis Lewis Boulevard, and where Marrone, a Bronx native, admits it's hard to find a park to play in without shards of glass on the ground. Brooklyn's Brandon Reddish, a former Fort Hamilton cornerback who joined the Orange this year, said the area cared so little about the sport that they were quick to cancel a game for any type of bad weather.
