The 2014 Syracuse Orange football season officially gets underway when the Villanova Wildcats visit the Dome for a 7:30 kickoff tonight.
- The game will be broadcast on ESPN3. Sorry. However, Time Warner Cable will televise the game locally on channel 398, but you must be a Sports Pass subscriber to access the channel.
- For those going to the game, you'll be joined by "more than 35,000" folks (including some kids from the Syracuse Northeast Community Center). Let's hope we can push that number up much higher.
- Omari Palmer will be a game-time decision for the Orange. Otherwise, everyone is ready and accounted for.
- We asked the folks at VUHoops some Qs. They gave us back some As. The TNIAAM crew also held a roundtable discussion in preparation for the game.

- Sean Farrell will be in the Dome covering the game and post-game presser for TNIAAM. Give him a follow.
- Everyone here predicts a Syracuse victory and the overwhelming majority of you think the Orange are due for a sizable victory. Now all they gotta do is actually do it...
