When the 2014 Syracuse Orange football schedule was released, you couldn't help but notice the glaring stretch through October. Louisville and Florida State at home before Wake Forest and Clemson on the road. A blistering string of games and right in the heart of Orange Central Homecoming time.

What was Syracuse going to do? When would they schedule Orange Central Homecoming?

Would we wait all the way until November when we head back home to play N.C. State? That might work since that seems winnable. Whatever the case, we just knew it would be something other than Florida State, because, obviously.

The October 11th Florida State game has been announced as the Orange Central Homecoming game. $&*#@$&!#$&#.
