McPherson: Be patient with Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone | The Juice Online
"Greg Robinson really dismantled the recruiting base for Syracuse most notably in Long Island," MacPherson said. "There’s a lot of work to do in the system of getting the right players and getting the players you want when there’s more competition in the area because other problems have emerged and you have really ignored your region. Doug, in my opinion, his big challenge is some getting recruiting dominance back in the northeast, particularly in Long Island, New Jersey and in New England."

Whichever side of the fence you sit on, there is a very objective staring Marrone and the Orange in the face: with one of the toughest non-conference schedules in the country this season, it will be very difficult for Syracuse to post a winning record this season.

"Everybody is just happy for each other’s success. There’s not a real greed factor and you can see that in our scoring," SU head coach Ange Bradley said. "We’re balanced in the way we attack, finish, and we play really good team hockey." That style of play led to an easy 6-0 win over the Bobcats at J.S. Coyne Stadium on Sunday. Freshman midfielder Gillian Pinder scored the first two goals of her collegiate career in the second half to seal the win for the Orange.

His ability to dribble efficiently with either hand and finish fluidly with his off-hand will make him a constant threat. Film shows that he can score from deep, mid-range, and get all the way to the bucket when he needs to. In fact, he could turn out to be a more dangerous scorer than Scoop Jardine or Brandon Triche.

College Football's Top Offensive Linemen for 2012 |
10. Justin Pugh, Syracuse - One of the nation’s top offensive tackles, Pugh enters his junior season with high expectations. He has started all 25 games over the last two seasons, culminating in two all-conference awards (2nd team in 2010 and 1st team in 2011). He has paved the way for back-to-back 1,000-yard rushers and is charged with protecting star quarterback Ryan Nassib this fall. With a great year at Syracuse, Pugh could leave early for the NFL. However, the junior is dealing with an injury that could force him to miss the start of 2012.

Three Idiots on Sports: Doug Marrone's Most Important Year
Where it gets murky is if the Orange do what the world expects them to do - and finishes in the 4-8 to 6-6 range. If that occurs, this idiot is speculating that a two year extension is the most likely outcome. That will give the coach three years left on his contract and two years full years in the ACC before we end up back at this point again.

Big East Summer Roundup: Louisville, Syracuse in title chase - NCAA Basketball -
2. Syracuse: The Orange's Big East swan song won't be as dominant as last season's 17-1 run through league play, but Jim Boeheim, fresh off serving as an assistant for the United States' gold-medal winning team in London, should again be in pursuit of a title. Gone are a quartet of last year's top six scorers -- two-guard Dion Waiters and center Fab Melo declared early for the NBA draft, while point guard Scoop Jardine and forward Kris Joseph graduated -- but senior guard Brandon Triche and junior forward C.J. Fair will lead another balanced attack aided by increased efforts from sophomores Rakeem Christmas and Michael Carter-Williams. The Cardinals will be heavy favorites, but 'Cuse could leave the conference wearing its crown.
