Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Podcast: Syracuse vs. Middle Tennessee recap

Figuring out what just happened and how to prevent another upset loss like that...

All season, Julian and Corey will be recapping the Syracuse Orange’s latest football game over the weekend -- rather than waiting for the following week when John and Dan are back on the air.

This week, they discuss SU’s 30-23 loss to the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders, what still went right for the Orange, and what went wrong and needs to be fixed immediately. Some of the larger talking points:

  • Why was no other receiver involved beyond Steve Ishmael?
  • Scott Shafer was trying to win; Syracuse was trying not to lose
  • Brian Ward’s defense was much improved, which is a good sign
  • What’s next for this Orange rushing attack after another poor effort?
  • Devin Butler’s potential role to help shake up this passing game
  • Punt return is a major issue — who should take over?
  • Looking slightly ahead at the troubles ahead on this tough schedule

Plan accordingly: This week’s podcast runs about 28 minutes. It’s all about Syracuse’s loss, sure, but also how to progress from here.
