Syracuse football backup quarterback Charley Loeb is ready, willing and coach says he's able | syracuse.com
Loeb hopes that process eventually leads to trading his place-kick holder’s duties for a starting job at quarterback – if not this season, maybe next year after Nassib departs and the Orange joins the Atlantic Coast Conference?

Like other Northeastern programs, Syracuse just isn’t what it used to be and the talent in that area doesn’t support programs like it did a couple of decades ago. Doug Marrone is a good enough coach that he might be able to have some success here and there — I don’t think that changes much in the ACC, either — but the Orange leaves the Big East on a low note.
