FB | 5 things to look for at Syracuse's Spring Game - Sports - The Daily Orange
At Syracuse’s lone open spring practice in Rochester on April 7, Doug Marrone said the team plans to utilize the quarterback position in its rushing attack this season. Ryan Nassib took all but three snaps under center for the Orange in 2011, but rarely displayed an ability to make plays with his feet. He finished the season with just 39 yards rushing on 65 attempts. Charley Loeb, John Kinder and Ashton Broyld all played at quarterback in Rochester, with the dual-threat freshman Broyld also taking reps at running back.

MBB | Forth grade: Former Syracuse center finds calling in teaching after basketball - Sports - The Daily Orange
Jeremy Forth was born with autism. Craig Forth always had a great relationship with his younger brother and growing up with an autistic sibling had a profound effect on his life. It’s a large part of why he wanted to be a teacher and why he specifically chose inclusive education as his major. Forth was the center on Syracuse’s 2003 national championship team, and after a brief professional career in Europe and the United States Basketball League, Forth turned his attention to the classroom, now teaching at Red Mill Elementary School in East Greenbush, N.Y.

Q&A with ESPN's Paul Carcaterra -
This Villanova-Notre Dame game is huge just based on the fact that the winner will get the No. 1 seed, and they’ll likely not play Syracuse. Syracuse is one of those dangerous teams that is not playing well when you look at their entire body of work for the season, but they could be dangerous. A lot hinges on how they face off and actually break defenses down, but I saw firsthand on Saturday when [junior] Brian Megill was facing off as a close defender, he gave that team a completely different look because Syracuse hasn’t just struggled on the faceoffs.

Nope. No apology. The original two accusations stand, and regardless, Boeheim screwed up by insulting alleged sex-abuse victims. You saw his apology for that, right? He didn't take it back, because he was wrong. Which means my column was right. You idiot.

Re-thinking national coach of the year - College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN
im Boeheim, Syracuse. Syracuse played through two stretches without defensive standout and potential first-round pick Fab Melo. But the second Melo-less stint was certainly the most impressive one. The Orange reached the Elite Eight without their most significant defender. With Melo available, the Orange might have stopped Jared Sullinger from dominating inside (19 points) during their loss to the Buckeyes. Still, Boeheim’s coaching prowess was critical throughout the year.
