Head coach Scott Shafer and his Syracuse Orange made more noise in the blogosphere than they did on the field today. Shafer, who admitted afterward that he needs to learn to control his emotions better, screamed some choice words at the Clemson sideline after the Tigers were stuffed on a fourth-down play late in the first half. Shafer was apparently upset that Clemson, which already led 35-7, was trying to run up the score.
At his post-game press conference, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney had an interesting response to the situation. Via Tigernet.com:
Shafer clearly expected Swinney to opt for a field goal instead of “taking a knee”, but it’s a pretty funny quote regardless. For what it’s worth, Syracuse played much better in the second half, so maybe Shafer’s outburst amped up his players.

It’s not usually a good sign when your best highlight comes in the form of a punt, but that’s where we’re at right now with the Syracuse Orange. Riley Dixon let off one of the longest punts you’ll ever see – 75 yards – midway through the first quarter of today’s game against Clemson. Unfortunately for him, the Tigers marched down the field and scored anyway – it’s 21-0 already.

Syracuse quarterback Terrel Hunt, h-back Ashton Broyld and defensive back Julian Whigham all give their thoughts on Syracuse's 49-14 loss to Clemson inside.
One of the biggest question marks entering the 2013 season for the Syracuse Orange was the receiving corps. On Saturday, those questions turned to a glaring weakness on this year's squad.
Last week we found out the latest incarnation of the greatest of all Syracuse Orange basketball traditions would be the pairing of C.J. Fair and Jerami Grant (with a hint of Michael Gbinije). As promised at the time, our dynamic duo trio took their talents to the soccer pitch in an attempt to play alongside the SU women's soccer squad.
Well, technically it was just The Silent...
