Syracuse Barely Receives Any Votes For 2016 All-ACC Preseason Football Team

Just in case you need a reminder of how much ACC Media value the talent on Syracuse's roster, look no further...

Only a fool would expect to see Syracuse Orange players pepper the 2016 All-ACC Preseason Football Team. In fact, without a Riley Dixon on hand, you shouldn't have expected anyone at all to make the cut. The truth is, Syracuse players barely cobbled together enough votes to be included in the Also Receiving Votes category.

You can find the whole list of players here but in order to find the Orange on the list you have to do some digging.

  • Steve Ishmael received one vote at wide receiver.
  • Omari Palmer received four votes at offensive guard.
  • Jason Emerich received three votes at center.
  • Zaire Franklin led Syracuse with thirteen votes at linebacker.
  • Antwan Cordy received two votes at safety.
  • Cole Murphy received two votes at kicker.
  • Brisly Estime received six votes at the specialist spot.

So, while expectations are high for Dino Babers and what he can eventually do with the Orange, expectations are low for the talent that makes up this year's squad.
