Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Podcast: Syracuse vs. Central Connecticut recap

Assembling some thoughts in the aftermath of a big Orange win.

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 50-7 victory over Central Connecticut, what went right for the Orange, what questions remain and how it sets up the rest of Syracuse’s season. Some of the larger talking points:

  • Why Syracuse and other programs play FCS games
  • Steve Ishmael’s improvement and putting it together mentally
  • Comparing Ryan Nassib and Eric Dungey’s skill sets
  • Lingering concerns around the Orange run game
  • Injury bug strikes again -- and may add caveats to the win here
  • Syracuse’s defensive was a team effort, rather than individual game
  • Julian previews the defense we’ll see from Scott Shafer next week

Plan accordingly: This week’s podcast runs 28 minutes. And there’s all football talk and nothing else (which you likely appreciate).
