Coming off a disappointing finish in 2011, the Syracuse Orange will look to build on its Pinstripe Bowl victory in 2010 and keep moving forward. Some big names are gone, but veterans are a year more experienced, and an exciting group of newcomers is ready to pick up the slack.

The Morning Orange: Once upon a time, Syracuse's Steve Morrison was Peyton Manning's teammate |
"My experience with the Colts was interesting," said the 6-foot-3 Morrison, now 40, who played linebacker in Indianapolis at around 250 pounds.

The other one, Jon, is the light-heavyweight champion of the UFC and a genuine star in the universe of mixed martial arts. They grew up in upstate New York, sons of a preacher and a woman who worked with the disabled, the three brothers caring for a beloved older sister named Carmen, who was slowly dying with cancer in her brain. If anyone ever earned his place in the unblinking sun, Chandler Jones has.
