Tweets Of Wonder:

Syracuse welcomes you.

What Does Shafer Think Of Him?: Shafer may have lost faith in Norton at one point.

"I think we'll take a good look at it and try to play the guy that gives us the best opportunity to win. It was nice to see Cole hit that long one and come back in. So we'll cross that bridge when we get closer to game time."

But this is a new season where hopefully Norton can start with a clean slate.

Interesting Nugget O' Interest: His middle name is Fergus.
