Nation Of Orange - Recapping Syracuse Football Media Day
Camp opened yesterday for Doug Marrone and the Syracuse Orange. It was the team’s annual media day, which gave us an opportunity to hear the Head Coach answer some of the most pressing questions regarding the roster. With just under a month until the season finally kicks off, there is still a lot left to be determined, but we did learn a few things yesterday.

"Mostly, we will have him lined up at running back," Marrone said. "We will have him lined up on some outside things and we will have him lined up at the wildcat position. We will have those things going on into camp and, like I said at Big East Media Day, we need to do a good job of managing what he can handle."

Syracuse University football team will have several questions to answer when practice commences |
No wonder Marrone said the season for him began a long time ago. Yet, for Orange fans it will really begin today when practice commences in preparation for the Sept. 1 noon opener vs. Northwestern in the Carrier Dome. Here are three big questions that must be answered before camp ends:

Syracuse Football 12 in '12: No.5 Ashton Broyld |
The most intriguing question on offense for Syracuse is how much freshman QB/RB/WR Ashton Broyld will hit the field.

Big East Football's Breakout Players for 2012 |
Marcus Sales, WR, Syracuse – Sales was suspended for all of 2011 due to an off-the-field incident, but his return is huge for an offense that will rely on the pass to win in 2012. In 2010, Sales finished the year by catching at least five passes in each of the final four games, including 172 yards in the bowl win over Kansas State. Alec Lemon is entrenched as Syracuse’s go-to target, but Sales should help quarterback Ryan Nassib stretch the field and could push for All-Big East honors by the end of the year.

Syracuse University football offensive guard Zack Chibane is always looking forward |
"There’s a lot of communication," Chibane said. "I can’t even really explain how it happens or why it happens or in what situations it happens, but when you play together for so long we just understand things the other guy is going to do. I think it’s a great thing Justin and I have, and whoever is going to start camp there it is something we need to develop. I’m looking forward to doing that because we have to have a lot more than five people ready to go."

"I just try to take everything one day at a time, one step at a time," he said, "and make sure the highs are never too high and the lows are never too low. Just keep a level head about everything because you never know what’s going to happen. I just keep working hard."

Syracuse University football team's top 10 games in the modern era? Here's one attempt |
When an editor asked me to come up with the top 10 games in SU’s modern history for a summer online project I was reluctant to comply, as my history in Syracuse only goes back to 1990 when I arrived here via my native Philadelphia suburbs with career stops along the way in Indiana, downstate New York and Vermont.
